Claire Danes graces the August cover of VOGUE magazine.
The Homeland actress looks right at home in front of the camera, as she poses for famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.
In this issue, Danes chats it up about taking her now-memorable role in Homeland, being a new mother, and more. Canes even reveals how ‘stuck’ she felt when she wasn’t actively working as an actress. Check out some highlights from her interview below.
On declaring her profession at age nine:
“ ‘Money or no money, I have to act. There’s no plan B. That’s it.’ So I went to Lee Strasberg and desperately tried to feel the wind!”
On feeding her son Cyrus at a awards ceremony;
“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.’ ”
“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.”
On her admiration for Jennifer Lawrence and Carey Mulligan:
“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.”
