‘Homeland’ star Claire Danes looks radiant on the January 2014 issue of Glamour magazine, available on newsstands Dec. 10.
The Emmy Award-winning celeb married ‘Hannibal’ star Hugh Dancy in 2009 and gave birth to their son Cyrus in December 2012.
After her stint as a teenager on the television drama ‘My So-Called Life,’ she was quoted as saying, “I’m 18, and I’m already thinking, You should’ve taken it slower. I’m reminiscing already: What am I going to be like when I really get old? Like when I’m 30.”
When that vintage sound bite was read back to Claire during her Glamour interview, she exclaimed, “Oh, Jesus.”
Danes acknowledges, “I’m happier in my thirties. I feel clearer about who I am and less apologetic about it, and more accepting of my limitations and also more aware of the ways in which I’m capable. Gravity hasn’t had too profound of an effect, and you’re a little less emotionally gangly. The twenties are a deceptively challenging/painful time. I’m just glad to be out of that phase.”
Regarding her spouse, “I’ve been with Hugh for…seven years? It really doesn’t feel that long. It feels new every year because there is a new set of challenges: Who are we to each other now that we’re married? Who are we now that we have this shared person? We never have to fight to keep it fresh and new. Life just demands that of us.”
Claire admits, “I am a feminist. And I’m so glad that ‘Girls’ creator and star Lena Dunham exists, because she is one too, and she’s quite vocal about it. Yes, women have more freedom and more influence than ever, but it’s hardly equal. It’s just not.”
