Claire Danes

Claire Danes

I have a huge, active imagination, [and] I think I'm really scared of being alone; because if I'm left to my own devices, I'll just turn into a madwoman.More Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
“You don't realize how useful a therapist is until you see yourself one and discover you have more problems than you ever dreamed of.”More Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
The life of my persona has nothing to do with me.More Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
It's so ironic that I'll forever be associated with that time because I hated being a teenager, ... I felt under siege. It was an enormous gift to be given those insightful, powerful words. I felt I was taking a megaphone and roaring, 'It's awful.' It was very cathartic.More Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
All the partner-swapping and reversals are farcical and a little Shakespearean, ... I play the straight man while everyone else is so eccentric.More Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
I became very successful at a young age, ... I had lots of opportunities and lots of power and had no idea how to focus it.More Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
I think they're both inward-looking. That's the most obvious parallel between the two.More Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
That's pretty easy for me to play, I guess.More Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
It's just as weird doing it with Steve as it is doing it with somebody my own age. You're not supposed to be kissing somebody who's not your boyfriend. You're just not. I don't know when I'll become more comfortable with it. You have to depersonalize it.More Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
Terminator 3More Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
I was really tired of that, so this opportunity landed on my lap. I was cast literally the day before I started workingMore Claire Danes [05/31/2006 12:05:00]
“In a way, that's really reassuring. I'm not just a very limited person to not have figured it out at this point. But it's also intimidating. Well, how long is it going to take before you can have a good time?”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“He's an incredibly dynamic person. I don't know if the general public is so conscious of that. He's a skillful, celebrated writer. He also collects art in earnest, and he's also an incredible musician. You should hear him play the ukulele. It's ridiculous what he's capable of.”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“I was dying to do that, to work with Jodie again.”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“With acting there are a lot more choices, ... With this, I either stick it or I don't. There's something really unforgiving about that.”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“I really appreciate her focus and discipline, ... This industry is very powerful and overwhelming and intimidating. She knows it and has created her own culture within it. And that integrity. She's got it.”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“She makes her own rules, ... She's consistent, and she follows those rules about life and work. And she's quite cheeky.”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“They look really beautiful,”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“It was a challenge for me to play somebody who was so quiet and receding and depressed because she's also on screen all the time, and she has to remain compelling and entertaining. I was really nervous that people were not going to stay with me while I was just staying behind that bloody counter.”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“I'm totally going through a rebel period right now. It's sort of waning, but ... ach, I'm allowed, right? It's OK, right?”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“This is Steve's personal story -- it's based on his actual relationship, ... We both have kind of slight frames, and I have dark hair in the movie like hers.”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“Martin knew the story very well. He internalized it years ago when he wrote the novella,”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“[When she initially read the script, Danes was amazed that Martin, a 30-year show-business veteran, could so clearly recall the particulars of his salad days.] Steve was great in establishing those details, ... He's really exact, even with the numbers. We learned how much [Mirabelle] owes, exactly, and what she has to pay off, and you know she has $4 every day to buy her sandwich. This seemingly petty stuff can really impact a person's experience.”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
“I think Jeremy wants things, and I think that's a great moment when (Mirabelle) says, 'You should just do it,' ... I think she just harnesses it or funnels it into some sort of point, and all of a sudden he has a goal. But I think at the beginning it's just a frustration and a desire to do things, but he doesn't really know how to do them, and that's what sets him off on believing you can make the things that you don't see happen. I think he has ambition; I don't think he's familiar with how that feels.”More Claire Danes [12/10/2006 12:12:00]
But I don't know if people are meant to be together. You have to have a lot in common, choose well and be really fortunate. It's not like you're sprinkled with fairy dust. You have to believe that love will be there when you need it.More Claire Danes [09/14/2011 04:09:02]
