Claire Danes looks gorgeous on the cover of Glamour Magazine


Claire Danes looks absolutely stunning on the new cover of Glamour Magazine. In the magazine she opens up about getting older, her husband Hugh Dancy, and more.

How much are we all loving ‘Homeland’ this season? It is SO MUCH BETTER than the last season! I’m obsessed! (I’m also obsessed with ‘Masters of Sex’! Please tell me you’re watching it.)

Anyway, here are some highlights from the interview!

On getting older: “I’m happier in my thirties. I feel clearer about who I am and less apologetic about it, and more accepting of my limitations and also more aware of the ways in which I’m capable. I was always looking forward to this time because people talk about it in very romantic terms. And I think it’s true. Gravity hasn’t had too profound of an effect, and you’re a little less emotionally gangly. The twenties are a deceptively challenging-slash-painful time. I’m just glad to be out of that phase.”

Speaking of her 20’s: “I was meandering a little. And a lot of the mysteries of life have been illuminated [since then]. Like, OK, this is the man I’m going to spend the rest of my life with. This is my son. This is my city. This is my home.”

On husband Hugh Dancy: “I’ve been with Hugh for…seven years? It really doesn’t feel that long. It feels new every year because there is a new set of challenges: Who are we to each other now that we’re married? Who are we now that we have this shared person? We never have to fight to keep it fresh and new. Life just demands that of us.”

Relationships are hard: “Yeah, relationships are a constant negotiation and balance. I’m just a hard worker, so [in previous relationships] I took that creed “Relationships take work” a little too literally at times and stayed in relationships longer than I maybe should have, because I thought, Well, no pain no gain… And it’s nonsense if it’s just not working. You have to leave and end it.”

Date nights and crushing on her husband: “Well, it’s true that you often kind of forget to see the person you’re most intimate with, but occasionally I’ll come to and sort of think, Oh my God! You’re really, really good-looking! [Laughs.] I’m embarrassed now! It’s nice to occasionally have that flash. People talk about “date night,” and it is true: Sometimes you have to apply yourself, or at least apply lipstick to yourself. You kind of have to dress up, just because. You know, wear heels to your own dinner table.”

The reality of date nights: “Sometimes it feels totally absurd, ’cause we’re just going down the block and he’s wearing his “smart” blazer. Like, who are we kidding? We know where this is going: We’re going back home to watch Breaking Bad. Still, those gestures are important. It just hasn’t stopped being fun.”

Claire Danes covers the August issue of Vogue Magazine, ‘Homeland’ costar Damian Lewis also appears inside!

Claire Danes lands the August cover of Vogue Magazine, and inside the mag, Damian Lewis is included in the photos. I’m loving these ‘Homeland’ themed photos taken by Annie Leibovitz. I freaking LOVE ‘Homeland’ and can’t wait for it to return! I read some article last week about how Claire and Damian are not getting along on the set of ‘Homeland,’ which is currently filming it’s third season. I’m not buying it. The sources say that Claire is a bit of a diva on set – now that she’s a mom. She has no patience for long filming days, and wants to quickly get back to her newborn son. I’m not buying it, though. I don’t believe there’s any drama at all, and you can’t make me believe it!

Preparing for her role in ‘Homeland’: “When I spent the day at Langley, they were very forthright and said”—she switches to a deep man’s voice—“ ‘You know, we’re always recruiting, and it’s not all that often that we’re rendered in pop culture. We’d like to have some influence on that.’ They were just so direct. It was admirable, actually, kind of ironically transparent.”

When she was summoned to talk to Bill Clinton at the Grammy’s: “Magnetic,” she says. “A mammoth brain.” It was a whirlwind event. Her newborn son, Cyrus, was upstairs at the Beverly Hilton with her parents, and she was able to go in and out of the action all night. “I went on the red carpet, went upstairs, fed Cyrus. Went into the ceremony, got the award, went back to feed Cyrus, went out again. . . . Then it was ‘Now you meet the president.’ ” As a nursing mom, she says, “I had these new boobs; I’m wearing a big Jessica Rabbit dress, and I’d been living in sweat pants for so long. . . . It was strange. It was dreamy, surrounded by my parents and my husband. It was one of the best nights of my life because of this perfect mash-up.”

Choosing to do Homeland: She was considering two parts in the same weekend, having just auditioned for the role of secretary to Leonardo DiCaprio’s J. Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood’s 2011 biopic. “I was like, ‘Do I want to play the secretary to the boss man or do I want to be the boss man?’ ” She curls up her nose. “I want to be the boss man.” Finally, there was that other voice telling Danes to take the role. “I was scared of it, and I thought, OK, right, that means I have to do it.”

Actresses she admires: “I’m so impressed by Jennifer Lawrence and Carey Mulligan,” she says. “They have this exquisite taste. They are very gifted in their ability to make great choices. I didn’t have that rudder.” It took a while to sift through the movie-star thing and realize she could just do what had drawn her to the industry in the first place. Acting. “There’s the movie star that plays herself and the movie star like Meryl that has this wonderful, glamorous persona intact and is undone every time she takes on a new character. I think I’m astounded and titillated by that.”

On Her Past Loves: “I’d left my childhood love after seven years, Ben Lee, an Australian singer-songwriter. My real guy,” she says, and pouts, though they’re still friendly. “Then I started dating Billy”—that’s Billy Crudup, who gave the gossip columnists a field day by leaving his girlfriend, Mary-Louise Parker, when she was seven months pregnant for Danes—“I was segueing into: ‘I’m a grown-up now.’ ”

I love Claire…. I can’t wait to see more of ‘Homeland!’

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!
