Angela Chase, is that you?
Wow, the years have treated Claire Danes VERY nicely!
The Homeland star is on the cover of the September issue of British GQ looking absolutely maaahvelous!
With a smokey cat eye and sexy legs, Claire is wearing a white halter maxi dress by Ralph Lauren's Black Label.
In the issue, she talks about everything from her Homeland character to turning down Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic!! WHAA!!
Here are some of the interview's HIGHlights!
On admiring Carrie Mathison, whom her character is based on in the Showtime series:
"She's like my kinky superhero alter ego now. Because as disturbed and troubled as she is, she's always f***ing right. Which is so nice because I so rarely am."
On turning down the lead role in Titanic:
"I had just made a romantic epic with Leonardo [DiCaprio] – it just seemed redundant to me. The problem is that I always took myself too seriously. Now I realize I should have lightened up. I was a serious kid to an absurd degree. I was overwhelmed with responsibility, trying to play grown up. I overdid it."
On being away from husband Hugh Dancy while filming in North Carolina:
"It sucks. Seven years, it’s a long-a** time. But every year I’m going to have something really compelling to do."
Honest and professional! This is why we love the lovely Miss Danes!
And she just gets better with age!
