The buck stops here -- at least as far as going beyond a divorce is concerned.

Wow, we almost forgot about this scandalous affair!
In a recent interview with Howard Stern, Claire Danes opened up about her much publicized 2003 affair with Billy Crudup – who at the time was in a serious relationship with Mary-Louise Parker. Not to mention Parker was seven months pregnant when the illicit dalliance first started!
"I was just in love with him. And needed to explore that and I was 24… I didn't quite know what those consequences would be."
Hmm, that makes sense. We do a lot of nonsensical and dumb things when we're young! We wonder how Mary feels about this excuse though…
As for the public's outraged reaction, the mom admitted:
"That was a scary thing. That was really hard. I didn't know how to not do that."
The Homeland star went on to reveal that the two are still "friendly" despite the break-up. As for her relationship with Mary, Claire remained mum.
Inneresting! We're even more curious to hear what the former Weeds star has to say in her new book, Dear Mr. You, a collection of letters the actress has written to imagined AND real men in her life.
So, what do YOU think of Danes' comments?
