Claire Danes on Her Famous 'Cry Face': 'I'm Surprised It's So Surprising!'

Claire Danes on Her Famous 'Cry Face': 'I'm Surprised It's So Surprising!'

Claire Danes gets up close and personal on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK magazine’s October 2014 issue, on newsstands September 3.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Homeland star had to share with the mag:

On being a parent alongside husband Hugh Dancy: “Being a mom is incredibly challenging, but we still feel a pressure to talk about it in very romantic terms. And it’s not just that. We all have that resentment at times and anxiety about being trapped by the role, that responsibility. And then chemically it can run riot . . And there’s no “off” button. [For me] that was the hardest adjustment. You always feel beholden to somebody . . . And for so long they’re like koala bears, you just feel a physical responsibility to be there for them to cling to. It’s pretty primal.”

On her parents loving Homeland:Cyrus was born [at the end of] the second season. I went to the hospital at 10 o’clock, literally as the finale was airing, and I think my parents, who were in New York with me, were conflicted about what they were more excited for. Honest to God. It goes beyond parental pride, they’re really into the show.”

On her famous ‘cry face’: “I’m surprised it’s so surprising. I have my guy, who thinks I’m pretty enough in our life together, so I don’t need to be seducing the audience that way. I think it’s also just my style, what I like in creative work, what I’ve always been attracted to, even as a little girl . . . I always had an appreciation for the macabre.”

The full interview appears in the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, on sale September 3rd, which is also available as a digital edition! For more from Claire, visit HarpersBazaar.co.uk.
