The Players: Billy Crudup, Mary-Louise Parker and Claire Danes

What went down: It turns out actor Billy Crudup really is all about the drama. The thespian was expecting his first child with longtime girlfriend Mary-Louise Parker in 2003 when he dumped her after seven years together. It seemed Crudup, who met Parker during a 1996 revival of William Inge's play "Bus Stop," had fallen for another actress. In 2004 he confirmed he was dating his "Stage Beauty" costar Claire Danes, although the couple denied an affair. The relationship eventually dissolved in 2006.From left: Showtime; Getty Images; Andrew H. Walker / Getty Images
