Cheating is always dangerous territory when it comes to relationships, but especially in the world of Hollywood where every misstep makes headlines and is plastered across tabloids.

Follow along below for 10 movie stars who were caught cheating on their partner with a costar:
10. Billy Crudup & Claire Danes
Before his acclaimed roles in Eat Pray Love, The Good Shepherd and Watchmen, Billy Crudup was most famous for his reported affair with Claire Danes while filming Stage Beauty. At the time, Crudup was married to Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker, who was seven months pregnant. Crudup and Danes reportedly began sneaking around and were eventually caught in the midst of an affair, which led to Crudup splitting from his wife to pursue the new relationship. The new couple went on to date for four years but eventually split as well. Danes is now married to Hugh Dancy, whom she met and started dating while they were filming Evening in 2007. The timeline of this relationship overlaps with the dates of her relationship with Crudup, which adds yet another layer of complication to this affair.
