Gwyneth Paltrow wants to work with Claire Danes.

The 41-year-old actress is good friends with the 34-year-old 'Homeland' star, and since they both have similar facial features and are petite blondes, she is hoping they'll have the chance to team up on screen and play sisters.

A source told ''Gwyneth has known Claire personally, but casually, for almost 20 years and when Gwyn was in her early 20s and Claire was a late teen actress, they both became famous around the same time in the mid-90s.

''Much has been made of the pair's similar looks and Gwyneth has finally decided that she and Claire have to find a project where they can play sisters!''

Gwyneth is said to be keener on the idea while Claire - who is currently starring as CIA agent Carrie Mathison on the third season of hit TV series 'Homeland' - is taking things ''one day at a time''.

The source added: ''But for now, this seems like a bit of a one-way street.

''Claire is a cool customer and doesn't get all worked up about 'dream projects' the way Gwyneth does. She's a 'one day at a time' kind of girl, so no one knows if Gwyneth's dream will come true.''
