Claire Danes rocks a sleek two-tone Burberry Prorsum trench coat on the cover of Vogue's August 2013 issue. For her accompanying editorial, the 34-year-old star is photographed with her Homeland co-star, Damian Lewis and is featured wearing eye-catching fall pieces from Calvin Klein Collection, Donna Karan, Victoria Beckham, Narciso Rodriquez and Hermès. I especially love the red silk Donna Karan sheath and the sexy silver Narciso Rodriquez gown.
Inside, Claire dishes on everything from having trouble landing roles after her award winning performance for Temple Grandin, becoming a mom and thoughts on today's female movie stars.
Claire on attending the Golden Globes as a new mom: “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.”
Claire on today’s female movie stars: “I’m so impressed by Jennifer Lawrence and Carey Mulligan. They have this exquisite taste. They are very gifted in their ability to make great choices. I didn’t have that rudder. There’s the movie star that plays herself and the movie star like Meryl [Streep] 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 not getting work after Temple Grandin: “I was stuck… It was confusing. I got a lot of plaudits, and it didn’t translate into more work. I was really, really struggling during that time. It was grim. I was very hurt. Two years of not working was brutal. And a point came where I thought, I really like interior design. Someone suggested, ‘Maybe your real success is in your personal life.’”
What do you think of Claire's cover? Will you be picking up a copy of the issue?
