Claire Danes - Claire Danes relies on husband's advice

Claire Danes relies on her husband's advice to keep her out of therapy.

The 34-year-old actress says her British actor spouse Hugh Dancy's more measured response to emotional problems has counter-acted her desire to share and dissect problems as an American.

Claire - who has nine-month-old son Cyrus with 38-year-old Hugh - says the best advice the 'Hannibal' star has given her is to get more sleep.

Speaking in the new UK issue of Vogue magazine, she said: ''That British reserve is so welcome. I come from the land of therapy and love it, therapy is great, but Hugh really helped me discover that, a lot of the time, I'm just tired.

''I don't have to go through this labyrinthine explanation, there doesn't have to be that much back story. I can just be in need of a nap.''

As a relatively new mother and a major star of 'Homeland' Claire needs as much sleep as she can get.

The actress admits the love she has for her son is stronger than anything she has experienced and she pines for Cyrus when she is separated from him for work.

Claire - who plays bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison in the drama series - explained: ''My real anxiety was that I would never want to work again. Because it's so intoxicating, the bond is just so ... viscous. It's like superglue. One of the overarching themes of the show is loneliness and sacrifice. Carrie's isolation is being really, really stretched to its outer limits. She's very stranded in this season. And I am feeling very bonded right now. So there's a real dichotomy there.''
