I don't agree with the whole "Claire Danes (or Angelina or whoever) is a man stealer, let's hate her" thing.
A woman who gets involved with a man currently in another relationship gets what she gets: an unfaithful man who she will always suspect will do the same to her as he did to the ex. She clearly has issues, if that is what she settles for. The woman who had her man "stolen" gets to find out what a scumbag that guy was. Neither of them deserve hate.
The guy, on the other hand? Hate on.
