Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy have married.

The couple, who met while shooting 2006 movie 'Evening', tied the knot in a low-key ceremony in France earlier this month.

Further details of the nuptials have not yet been revealed, although it is understood a select group of the pair's family and friends were present.

Neither Claire, 30, nor 34-year-old Hugh's representatives have confirmed the wedding.

The couple announced they were engaged earlier with year, with Claire later admitting their relationship was unlike anything she had experienced before.

She said: "He's such a cutie patootie. While relationships are work, this just didn't feel like it. It's the kind of work that feels energising rather than enervating. I find it very freeing to know that, OK, it takes constant nurturing and attention, but I can also stop looking for the one."

Hugh has been less keen to spill the secrets of the romance.

Asked how they managed to keep their relationship alive, he replied: "Don't ask me! I don't think anybody knows the answer to that question!"
