Claire Danes covers up her upper body with her hands as she goes topless for her cover photo shoot for Interview magazine’s November 2013 issue.
Here’s what the 34-year-old Homeland actress had to share with the mag:
On being a mom to son Cyrus: “I guess it’s closest to being infatuated with a lover or something. But it’s not that. It’s cellular. So, yeah, that the love for your child is physical was a big surprise. I can’t not look at him if he’s anywhere nearby, because there’s no competition. I can’t read. I can’t watch a show. I can’t do anything but stare at him doing nothing.”
On My So Called Life: “I guess I knew it was special back then, too, but it was my first big gig, so I had no sense of context. But I became close with a lot of people involved—and I am still. It was a seminal experience for me, both professionally and personally.”
On her next role: “I would really like to play another character to deviate from Carrie [in Homeland] for a second just because I’m starting to think that acting is this, and while this is one of the most fulfilling expressions of acting that I’ve found, it’s not why I do it. It’s not it. I think I’d appreciate her even more if I could take a little vacation from her and inhabit somebody else for a while.”
