Claire Danes graced the cover of the August issue of Vogue magazine and she talked candidly about her life in Hollywood and the struggles she went through. Claire Danes name-dropped stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Carey Mulligan, and Meryl Streep.
Claire praised Jennifer Lawrence and Carey Mulligan for their style in the interview.
"I'm so impressed by Jennifer Lawrence and Carey Mulligan," Danes said. "They have this exquisite taste. They are very gifted in their ability to make great choices. I didn't have that rudder."
According to The Los Angeles Times, Danes poses with costar Damian Lewis in the magazine spread. The stills showcase key moments between the costars in the espionage series, just in time for the Emmy Awards nominations coming up this week.
Clare admitted that she got career advice from her acting idols after going through a slump in her acting career.
"I've had conversations with them. Meryl, Susan Sarandon, Jodie Foster," she said. "You have to pick your battles on set. You have to come to work from a place of love. You have to stay hydrated when you have crying scenes. You have to go to college. And you have to ask for money because there's always more money and they won't give it to you because you're a girl!"
The advice paid off! After struggling without an acting gig for two years after the award-winning film "Temple Grandin," Claire hit the jackpot with "Homeland."
The award-winning actress plays bipolar CIA Agent Carrie Mathison on Showtime's hit series "Homeland," which is heading for its third season, The Los Angeles Times reports.
Claire recently welcomed a baby boy, Cyrus, in December 2012, with her English husband and fellow actor Hugh Dancy. Claire discussed juggling between her career, which was once again taking off, and caring for her child.
She explained balancing work and family at the Golden Globe awards this year.
"I went on the red carpet, went upstairs [at the Beverly Hilton], 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 [Bill Clinton].'
"I had these new boobs; I'm wearing a big Jessica Rabbit dress, and I'd been living in sweat pants for so long," she continued. "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."
