Claire Danes, Lena Dunham and more at the Time 100 Gala!

Here are some more photos from last night’s Time Magazine 100 Most Influential People Gala in NYC. Claire Danes was on hand to honor recipient Lena Dunham. Apparently Claire wrote the article on Lena for the magazine.

Claire wore this UGLY dress by Lanvin. She is so gorgeous (even though in every picture she looks like she’s being electrocuted), why would she pick such an awful dress? Speaking of awful, so is Lena Dunham’s Saint Laurent dress. I mean that looks just plain awful on her.

Olivia Munn wore a mustard Michael Kors dress, which looks great.

More pictures below!

Molly Sims Was “Jealous” of Claire Danes’ Post-Baby Body

Claire Danes and other celebs may shed baby weight like it’s nothing, but some don’t!

Speaking to reporters on Jan. 24 at the Elle Women in Television event in West Hollywood, Molly Sims spoke candidly about her postpartum weight loss struggles following the June 19, 2012 birth of her son, Brooks Alan:

“I’m still about ten pounds away and my baby is seven months. And I look at Claire Danes at the Globes and I’m like, I hate you.”

When Us Weekly pointed out that Danes credited Spanx for her svelte post-baby look at the Globes, Sims, who’s married to film producer Scott Stuber, quipped, “Sweetie, that ain’t Spanx. I’ve got Spanx on. That ain’t Spanx.”

Count your blessings, Miss Sims!  You’ve done a lot- acting, modeling, designing…and now parenting. The 39-year-old mom has a bit of a right to be frustrated, though: she revealed she gained almost 65 pounds during her pregnancy because of a thyroid condition.

“My thyroid kind of shut down, so that really made it very difficult in terms of the weight loss.”

Now on a natural thyroid medicine, she’s ten pounds from her goal weight, and restricting her diet as well as working with personal trainer Tracy Anderson.  Like many moms, losing the weight is really hard. I mean, I don’t know personally, but it has to be- mothers’ bodies go through so many changes. Still, it’s important to appreciate what you DO have, am I right?

Claire Danes: “I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom.”

An 8-months-pregnant Claire Danes glows on the cover of ELLE February, on newsstands nationwide January 15th. In the issue, she opens up about being a working mother, her relationship with husband Hugh Dancy, and even meeting President Obama.

On waiting to have children:

“I’ve always wanted to have kids, but I’m glad I didn’t until now. When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it…I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn’t suit me. I feel so fortunate, in that I’ve had this arrow-straight focus…that I wanted to act.”

On her relationship with husband Hugh Dancy:

“Hugh was just the right partner for me. I got very, very lucky. There’s only so much credit you can take when it just sort of works, you know? And obviously we work hard at maintaining our relationship – that is central to both our lives – but at the same time, it’s just this kind of ease that I can’t really account for.”

On meeting President Obama (a fan of Homeland) with her husband Hugh at the White House Correspondent’s dinner:

“Hugh was like, ‘We have to meet Obama,’ and we walked over before we could think and found ourselves shaking hands with him.  Hugh realized that he’d forgotten to actually properly introduce himself, and [President Obama] was like, ‘And you are?’ And Hugh was like, ‘I’m sorry, Mr. President.’  I said, ‘I’m Claire Danes,’ and he said, ‘Oh, you’re a fine actress.’ And I said, ‘You’re a fine president!’  And he said, ‘Oh, you’re a finer actress than I am president.’ I didn’t have any retort.  Hugh and I went immediately to the bar and had a big shot of vodka.”

On teenagers growing up in Hollywood today:

“When I was younger, I was a little bit more restless, but there weren’t as many eyes. There weren’t as many tabloids or the number of cameras that everyone’s armed with. I feel huge sympathy for teenagers who have suddenly found themselves as public figures now, because it just sucks for them.”

Since the interview, 33-year-old Claire gave birth to her first child, son Cyrus Michael Christopher.

Claire Danes is a mom!

Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy are first-time parents!

The ‘Homeland’ actress, 33, and her actor husband, welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on Monday, December 17. They named their boy Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy.

Since confirming her pregnancy in July, Danes has stayed mostly mum on the subject of baby — including keeping the sex a secret — but tells PEOPLE in its new year-end double issue that she looks forward to “getting to know our new Dancy” over the break.

Danes, who won an Emmy in September for her role as bipolar CIA-agent Carrie Matheson on the hit Showtime drama, wed Dancy, 37, in a private ceremony in France in 2009.

Love them, they’re so cute!!

Claire Danes covers Flare Magazine, opens up about playing a bi-polar person on ‘Homeland’

FLARE Magazine, celebrates Emmy-winner and expectant mother Claire Danes on their November cover. Danes wears a Celine cuff and Sydney Evans earrings on the cover; inside, she models a purple coat by Versace. In FLARE’s exclusive interview, the actor reflects on growing up famous, her Emmy-winning role, and the reality of bi-polar disorder.

On child stardom: “I was pretty clear about what I did and didn’t want to do, even as a kid. People dismiss kids as being unthinking; they’re surprisingly discerning. I wanted to be taken seriously from the outset.”

On transitioning from romantic leads to bi-polar F.B.I. agent Carrie Mathison: “It’s arguable that being in love and being mentally ill are sort of similar [laughs]. But it’s true I went through this arduous decade and it did get a bit tiresome after awhile—you want to be defined in some other way.”

On the reality of bi-polar disorder: “Carrie’s disease is formidable, it’s furious, but it’s also treatable and every case is individual. I think the show offers a pretty good reflection of what that experience is like.”

On her reputation as a serious actor: “I actually want people to imagine me as being a little less serious sometimes. But people get attached to certain characters and perceptions.”
