Claire Danes Lands Art Hosting Tv Gig


Claire Danes Steve Martin

The Homeland star will helm the upcoming eighth season of Public Service Broadcasting's (PBS) acclaimed series, with each episode focusing on a different city, and four artists who have made a name for themselves in the art world in that town.

Among those featured on the new season are Los Angeles' Ed Arceneaux and Tala Madani, Chicago’s Nick Cave and Barbara Kasten, and Mexico City’s Natalia Almada and Minerva Cuevas.

Danes has been a longtime supporter of the arts, since both her parents were artists in New York City.

Claire Danes Wants To Rip Her Hair Out After Flying With Son


Claire Danes Hugh Dancy

The 36-year-old actress is mother to three-year-old Cyrus with husband Hugh Dancy and as busy actors, the couple has commitments in various countries, meaning the little boy is already more well-travelled than many adults.

However, as she appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Monday (04Apr16), Claire warned new father Seth against travelling with a young child.

"The worst point is when they're starting to walk, but they don't have the attention span to watch a show, so they just want to wander the aisles and you just want to rip every hair out of every follicle," she laughed.

Claire Danes' Bunny Rabbit Failure


Claire Danes Hugh Dancy

The 36-year-old actress is mother to three-year-old son Cyrus with husband Hugh Dancy. When it came to celebrating this Easter weekend (26-27Mar16), Claire thought she had prepared well enough, but her little boy was left somewhat disappointed when she failed to provide a live Easter Bunny.

"He was so sweet. I went to get him in the morning and I’m so much more excited than he is," Homeland star Claire laughed during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. "I was like, ‘I think the bunny rabbit came, the Easter Bunny came last night, do you want to go and check it out?’ And he was like, (baby voice) ‘I just want to hold a little bunny in my hand’. And my heart just went (explode). I also felt like a total failure. I was like ‘I’ve got lots, lots of chocolate!’ "

When it comes to Easter, Claire, Hugh and their family have a somewhat unusual way of marking the occasion; they compete with innovative eggs, all with the hope of landing the cover of their annual Easter egg book.

Claire Danes Living At Architect's Place During Home Renovations


Claire Danes Hugh Dancy

The Homeland star and Dancy recently moved back to the city after living a nomadic existence in recent years, while shooting their TV shows.

Their house was supposed to be completed this past summer (15), but the couple is still waiting to move in and has taken up temporary refuge at its architect's home.

"I've been away forever," she tells U.S. late night host Jimmy Fallon on Monday (07Dec15). "My husband, Hugh Dancy, has been filming a show in Canada. So as soon as my season ends, his begins in yet another country. It's been three years because last season we were in South Africa... and I literally just got back from Berlin."

Homeland Sabotaged By Graffiti Artists


Berlin Claire Danes

Three artists were hired to add Arabic slogans to the show's 'refugee camp' sets in Berlin, Germany, but they objected to the depiction of the Muslim world and painted slogans criticising the show on walls, which were shown in an episode which aired in the U.S. on Sunday (11Oct15).

Some of the slogans broadcast included "Homeland is racist", "Homeland is not a series", and the popular anti-racism Twitter.com hashtag "#blacklivesmatter".

Homeland has previously been criticised by both Pakistani and Lebanese officials for the way it has portrayed the countries.

Claire Danes Billy Crudup Howard Stern Hugh Dancy Jared Leto

Claire Danes found criticism of her romance with Billy Crudup ''scary''.

Billy left his girlfriend Mary-Louise Parker, who was seven months pregnant with their child, in 2003 for Claire, his 'Stage Beauty' co-star, and the 'Homeland' actress insists the relationship was something she ''needed to explore'' despite the trauma it caused.

Speaking about how people reacted to their romance, Claire told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show: ''That was a scary thing. That was really hard. I didn't know how to not do that.

Claire Danes' Polite Husband


Claire Danes Hugh Dancy

Claire Danes thinks her husband is too polite.

The 36-year-old actress adores her ''very British'' spouse Hugh Dancy - with whom she has two-year-old son Cyrus - but finds his ''indirect'' way of speaking can be very frustrating.

She said: ''He is very British. There is irony, which is very nice, and self-deprecation and awareness of one's relationship to others, which translates into politeness, which can be very elaborate and very indirect.
