Actor Billy Crudup has been romantically linked to numerous venerable names in the biz -- Mary-Louise Parker and Claire Danes among them -- and now he can count Meryl Streep on his list. Lest we need further proof, the report describes Crudup as introducing Gummer around and the couple doing couple-y things like "holding hands and rubbing each other's backs."
