I always get a kick out of the tabloids that proclaim a star has been “secretly” married. What constitues “secretly” for them, anyway? The fact that they didn’t get any pictures or a scoop before it happened?
Anyway, it’s been reported that Claire Danes and her boyfriend of two years (and fiance of seven months), actor Hugh Dancy, were married in a quiet ceremony in France at the beginning of September. The ceremony was said to have been kept intimate and was attended by family and close friends of the couple.
The two met in 2006 while filming Evening, and announced they were engaged this past February. About Hugh, Claire recently said:
“While relationships are work, this just didn’t feel like it,” she told BlackBook magazine. “It’s the kind of work that feels energizing rather than enervating. I find it very freeing to know that, okay, it takes constant nurturing and attention, but I can also stop looking for the one.”
Claire and Hugh apparently got to know each other while playing rounds of Scrabble and Boggle on the set of the movie, and a co-star and friend of Claire’s said: “I was there when it was happening and it’s something that I will never forget. I’m incredibly happy for them. They are perfect for each other.” Aww!
