Now It’s hard to tell if people know actor Billy Crudup more for his face or for his voice.

But a taste for offbeat theatre projects, his changing physiognomy, and an international scandal set him on an alternative path. (When Crudup left long-time girlfriend Mary-Louise Parker for Claire Danes in 2003, the headlines were merciless. Parker was pregnant with his son, William, at the time.) Read More: // here
