Slide 1 of 4 | View On One Page

Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy have one of the most solid relationships in Hollywood, and it’s probably because they don’t seek out the spotlight and instead just focus on their relationship and their family life. Even though these two are ridiculously private, we have rounded up 7 things most people don’t know about their relationship:

7. The Beginning

They met on the set of the movie Evening in 2006. Claire was playing the character Vanessa as a young girl while Hugh played her love interest. The two quietly dated until she confirmed their relationship while she was on David Letterman in June 2007. While there have been rumors that she and Hugh hooked up while she was dating Billy Crudup, she claims that she fell for him while she was very single. “I was very recently single, and I had never been single before, so we were just friends for a while. [Hugh and I] met in Rhode Island when it was at its most audaciously beautiful, in the fall. And there was one day when we were bicycling by the water and it was sparkly and idyllic, and I just had this dumb epiphany, like, I’m really just happy,” she told Marie Claire.

6. Engagement and Wedding

The Homeland actress and the Hannibal actor announced that they were engaged in February 2009 and were married seven months later in early September 2007 in a secret, low-key ceremony in France with just their families and a few close friends in attendance. Not many details are known about the wedding except that Danes wore a dress designed by Narciso Rodriguez.
