Claire Danes Says Playing Carrie In 'Homeland' Can Be 'Pretty Exhausting'

The 36-year-old actress is starring in the off-Broadway play Dry Powder at the theater with co-star John Krasinski.

Neither of them is encumbered by a life or the messiness of human relationships—that’s their advantage. I do like that Jenny’s not such an open wound, because Carrie is, and that’s pretty exhausting. I find Jenny very charming—how can somebody have such awful values and say things that are so cutting and still be strangely adorable?”
