ELLE Feb '13 Cover

Homeland actress Claire Danes graces the cover of the February issue of ELLE magazine.  The 8-month pregnant actress – first child with husband Hugh Dancy – has had a resilient career since starting out as a teenage actress in the nineties.  Since My So Called Life, she’s earned prestigious acting awards for her tour de force acting in movies, HBO specials and the critically acclaimed Showtime series Homeland.  On her cover, shot by Carter Smith, Danes wears a white Just Cavalli frock with jewels from Bulgari, C.Wonder, Cartier, R.J. Graziano and Kenneth Jay Lane.  She also wears Tom Ford, Cartier, Chloé, Narciso Rodriguez, Gianvito Rossi in the Joe Zee styled editorial.  Below is an excerpt from her interview.

On waiting to have children:

“I’ve always wanted to have kids, but I’m glad I didn’t until now. When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it…I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn’t suit me. I feel so fortunate, in that I’ve had this arrow-straight focus…that I wanted to act.”

On her relationship with husband Hugh Dancy:

“Hugh was just the right partner for me. I got very, very lucky. There’s only so much credit you can take when it just sort of works, you know? And obviously we work hard at maintaining our relationship – that is central to both our lives – but at the same time, it’s just this kind of ease that I can’t really account for.”

On meeting President Obama (a fan of Homeland) with her husband Hugh at the White House Correspondent’s dinner:

“Hugh was like, ‘We have to meet Obama,’ and we walked over before we could think and found ourselves shaking hands with him.  Hugh realized that he’d forgotten to actually properly introduce himself, and [President Obama] was like, ‘And you are?’ And Hugh was like, ‘I’m sorry, Mr. President.’  I said, ‘I’m Claire Danes,’ and he said, ‘Oh, you’re a fine actress.’ And I said, ‘You’re a fine president!’  And he said, ‘Oh, you’re a finer actress than I am president.’ I didn’t have any retort.  Hugh and I went immediately to the bar and had a big shot of vodka.”

On teenagers growing up in Hollywood today:

“When I was younger, I was a little bit more restless, but there weren’t as many eyes. There weren’t as many tabloids or the number of cameras that everyone’s armed with. I feel huge sympathy for teenagers who have suddenly found themselves as public figures now, because it just sucks for them.”
