Claire Danes has opened up about her relationship with Hugh Dancy in a new interview with Grazia [via Daily Mail], claiming that he is the person she feels closest to. In the interview, she also talks about dropping out of college, her date nights with Hugh, and retaining her sense of fun as she gets older.
When talking about the people that she’s closest to, Danes says, “Who am I closest to? My husband, which I’d say is probably good news. He definitely trumps everyone else, although I’m pretty close to my parents, Christopher and Carla. I haven’t been spending a lot of time with Hugh lately because we’ve been in so many different places with work, but he is the person I tell absolutely everything to. I trust him more than everyone else.” She talks about their date nights, saying, “A couple of weeks ago I went on a date night with Hugh, who I hadn’t seen in a long time because of work. We went out to a restaurant in New York and I had a big bowl of pasta. I was a little overwhelmed with joy to be with my guy, eating lots of carbs. It was heaven.”
She also adds that she’s still fun, saying, “I can get a dance party started pretty much anywhere and anytime. I’m shameless and I’m motivated in this cause. I love to dance.”
When the topic comes to college, she gets a little bit more introspective, saying, “In an ideal world, it would have been nice to have graduated from Yale University. But, in the end, I didn’t really need to go further than I did (she dropped out of her psychology degree after two years). There are also a lot of shoes that I probably did not need to buy. I’m not being obnoxious, I am just excessively self-critical. It has served me well in a lot of ways, but I think I rely way too heavily on it.”
