Claire Danes - Claire Danes: 'Women And Men In Hollywood Aren't Equal'

Actress Claire Danes is apprehensive about ever making a move into directing because Hollywood is such a male-dominated industry.

The Homeland star is keen to step behind the camera to make her filmmaking debut, but admit she fears not being taken seriously because she's a woman.

In an interview with U.S.' Glamour magazine, Danes says, "Yes, women have more freedom and more influence than ever, but it's hardly equal. It's just not. It's really f**king crazy. I'm sorry I'm cursing. But it's wild that women are underrepresented in Hollywood. I have real anxiety about directing, and that's something to question and challenge and correct."

However, Danes sees hope in the fact that Lena Dunham, creator and star of hit series Girls, is making strides. She adds, "I am a feminist. And I'm so glad that Lena Dunham exists, because she is one too, and she's quite vocal about it."
