Claire Danes Shows Off Her FLARE

claire danes covers flare magazine november issue

Claire Danes covers Canada’s FLARE magazine for its November issue. Doesn’t she look great? I’m loving that purple coat! Here are some excerpts from Claire’s interview.

On child stardom: “I was pretty clear about what I did and didn’t want to do, even as a kid. People dismiss kids as being unthinking; they’re surprisingly discerning. I wanted to be taken seriously from the outset.”

On transitioning from romantic leads to bi-polar F.B.I. agent Carrie Mathison: “It’s arguable that being in love and being mentally ill are sort of similar [laughs]. But it’s true I went through this arduous decade and it did get a bit tiresome after awhile—you want to be defined in some other way.”

On the reality of bi-polar disorder: “Carrie’s disease is formidable, it’s furious, but it’s also treatable and every case is individual. I think the show offers a pretty good reflection of what that experience is like.”

On her reputation as a serious actor: “I actually want people to imagine me as being a little less serious sometimes. But people get attached to certain characters and perceptions.”

Claire is wearing a Celine cuff and Sydney Evans earrings on the cover; inside, she models a purple coat by Versace. You can get more information and see a behind-the-scenes video at Flare.com.
