Claire Danes Apparently Old Enough To Play A Mom In New Movie!

Claire Danes To Play Mother Of Teenage Daughter

Both Claire Danes and James Marsden are pretty young. So young, that just a few years ago, people probably would have laughed if you suggested that they'd be playing mom and dad to a teenage daughter.

But that's what they're doing in As Cool As I Am, the adaptation of Pete Fromm's coming-of-age novel about a teenage girl, her troubled mother, and her often-absent father.

The daughter has yet to be cast, so, it'll be interesting to see who will be chosen to play her. Knowing Hollywood, she probably won't be anywhere near the character's real age, which is around 15.

This definitely has nothing to do with their acting abilities, because we def think that both Claire and James can pull off the duties and nail the parts — they're both extremely talented.

It just kinda weirds us out that we're to the point where they can legitimately play a couple with a teenage daughter!

How do U feel about this??

    She only just turned 32. Not old enough to play the mother of a 15 year old, unless she got pregnant at 16. Which happens. But, it's a slight stretch. More believable as a mother to a 15 year old would be somebody in their late 30s. Claire's old enough to play the mother of a younger kid, maybe up to the age of 10, 11, but not quite 15.

    You're an idiot Mario. By todays standards and thanks to shows like MTV's Teen Mom…she's old enough to have a 16 year old. Oh, and since when does anyone play their age on television and movies? It's make believe…so stfu over such nonsense crap, Mario.

    @ Q-bert…She is old enough to play a teenage daughter's mother!! Do the math that would have made her 17 when she had the kid!! It's not a stretch at all teenagers have kids all the time. I knew a girl that went to my highschool she had her kid when she was seventeen and now she's 35 and her son is now 18 years old and going to college next year!! So it's not out of ordinary to see younger parents with teenage children…happens alot!!

    She's 32, which would have made her 17 if her daughter is 15. He would have been 23 if his daughter is 15, not at all a stretch. Especially given the plot, mom is troubled dad isn't around.

    whoa whoa whoa–just because she's been CAST to play the mother of a 15 year old doesn't mean she "can legitimately play" the mother of a 15 year old. it's gonna be pretty funny when they get an 18 year old to play a 15 year old and want us to believe that claire danes is her mom. unless of course, as others point out, the mother's trouble has something to do with her teenage pregnancy.
