Claire Danes opens up about marriage and her age in the January issue of Glamour magazine in which she covers.
The Homeland actress talks about her strong emotions that over take her in the show with her character.
“I think people are made uncomfortable by uncensored expressions of emotion,” says Danes. “But, you know, that’s my job. I don’t have those fears. I really have never been concerned about being beautiful on-screen. That’s just not my jam.”
“I’m concerned about it if I’m playing a beautiful character. But it’s not relevant for ["Homeland" protagonist] Carrie. I don’t need to worry about that, and I think that’s really great. I love sitting in the makeup trailer and getting my makeup done in 15 minutes as opposed to an hour and a half.”
And when it comes to being in her thirties and how she's handling it, since starting to act at a very young age.
“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,” says the actress. “I’m just glad to be out of that phase.”
