Danes played a teenage murderer in a guest starring role on Law & Order in the season three episode "Skin Deep." She appeared in an episode of HBO's Lifestories: Families in Crisis entitled "The Coming out of Heidi Leiter".
In May, Watts, 48, told Red magazine of Schreiber, “We have huge love and respect for one another and high hopes for it to remain that way going forward.” But she added, “[Dating] just seems completely frivolous and counterproductive and just not really in my world right now.” It is believed she has been friends with Crudup for some time, and they were photographed together with Schreiber and Eva Mendes at a 2009 Broadway party.
Last month, Crudup, 49, said he was still looking for someone to spend the rest of his life with after previous relationships with Mary-Louise Parker, with whom he has a 13-year-old son, William, and “Homeland” star Claire Danes.
She appeared in an Off-Broadway production of The Vagina Monologues in 2000, and made her Broadway debut playing Eliza Doolittle in the 2007 revival of Pygmalion.
In 2010, she portrayed Temple Grandin in the highly acclaimed HBO TV film Temple Grandin, which won her a second Golden Globe and her first Primetime Emmy Award for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.
News of the new love comes just months after Watts split from Schreiber, who she had been in an 11-year relationship with.
