Claire Danes doesn't care what you think about her "ugly crying face."The actress covers the January issue of Glamour magazine where she opens up about her character Carrie Mathison on "Homeland," feminism and her husband Hugh Dancy. While Danes has gotten a lot of flak about her facial expressions when she breaks down on the show, she doesn't mind one bit -- as long as she's nailing the scene. "Well, it is true, she gets emotional a lot. [Laughs.] There is that. But I actually think feelings are really hard for people. I think people are made uncomfortable by uncensored expressions of emotion," Claire tells the mag. "But, you know, that’s my job. I don’t have those fears. I really have never been concerned about being beautiful on-screen. That’s just not my jam. I’m concerned about it if I’m playing a beautiful character. But it’s not relevant for Carrie. »

" Danes, 34, tells January's Glamour, which hits newsstands Dec. 10. "I'm embarrassed now! It's nice to occasionally have that flash." As for growing older, "I'm happier in my 30s, »

Claire Danes debuted new, reddish locks after an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman in NYC on Thursday. The Homeland star showed off the darker 'do while heading out of the studio and back to her waiting SUV. Claire's hair was also a bit darker than usual on her recent Interview magazine cover, though it's still not quite as red as her '90s alter ego Angela Chase from My So-Called Life. In the magazine, Claire talked to fellow actor Dustin Hoffman about the differences between portraying angst-ridden teenager Angela and her current character, bi-polar CIA agent Carrie Mathison, saying, "[Homeland] has really been my first time aging with a character and experiencing her develop and change." The last time we saw Claire out and about was last month, when she was spotted taking a stroll in Manhattan with her husband, Hugh Dancy, and their baby son, Cyrus. Claire »

During her chat with the fashion mag, Danes spoke about the difficulties in taking on her bipolar character on the hit Showtime series so soon after giving birth to her son Cyrus.

The 34-year-old star also shared how she and her husband, Hugh Dancy, help one another with their respective projects. "My husband is also on a television show now, so we're always »
The Victorians really did invent the first vibrator to cure women of various 'afflictions', but the reality probably wasn't anything like as much fun as is depicted here
Director: Tanya Wexler
Entertainment grade: C
History grade: C+
The first mechanical vibrator designed for the massage of men and women was invented in the early 18th century. As the industrial revolution progressed, it was succeeded by devices powered by water, steam and electricity.
Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy) is an idealistic doctor in Victorian London, trying to convince his sceptical colleagues of germ theory and the importance of hygiene. This annoys them so much that he keeps getting sacked, and he finally ends up at the upmarket practice of Robert Dalrymple (Jonathan Pryce), treating ladies suffering from hysteria. According to Dr Rachel P Maines of the Cornell University School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, whose enthralling book The Technology of »

For many Americans, it's impossible to imagine what life in the African nation of Rwanda is like. Maybe you know of its war-torn past and the Rwandan Genocide that killed nearly a million people as depicted in dramas like the Don Cheadle-fronted Hotel Rwanda, Shake Hands With the Devil, Sometimes in April with Idris Elba or Hugh Dancy's Beyond the Gates. But nearly 20 years have passed since this atrocity ripped the country's sense of community apart, and now is the time for a new story to emerge from Rwanda, one full of hope, joy, and inspiration. All of the above can be found above in the trailer for the documentary Sweet Dreams. This doc centers on a remarkable group of women who wished to drum in a new era in Rwanda, so they started a drum circle, defying conventions that only men may play the instrument. But literally »

Examples of savant characters include David Warner’s bat expert Phillip Payne in Nightwing, Zelda Rubinstein’s spiritual medium Tangina in Poltergeist, Matthew McConaughey’s dragon slayer Denton Van Zan in Reign of Fire, Lin Shaye’s paranormal investigator Elise Rainier in Insidious, and Otto Jespersen’s monster killer Hans in Trollhunter.

A TV show about the pre-Silence of the Lambs exploits of Hannibal Lecter did not, at first, feel too enticing. While Lecter still tops many best fictional villain lists, his stock has taken a dive in recent years, with Brett Ratner's bland Red Dragon adaptation and the dismal Hannibal Rising prequel lowering the bar on the big screen. Yet Hannibal's first series, which aired here on Sky Living and has just been released on box set, proved one of the most daring, stylish and satisfying shows of the year.
We meet Dr Hannibal Lecter as he's first brought in by the FBI to assess the mental state of the fragile Will Graham, a special investigator and criminal profiler who has the remarkable and disturbing »

Claire Danes appeared to be in a cheerful mood when she went for a walk with husband Hugh Dancy and their son, Cyrus, in Toronto on Saturday. The actress's smile could be coming from the fact that the third season of Homeland is currently getting kicked into high gear. The series earned its best ratings ever when it premiered last week, despite overlapping with the series finale of Breaking Bad, which, like Homeland, is a favorite amongst critics. Claire's smile could also be a sign that she's well-rested. The actress revealed to British Vogue that her husband has taught her that some of her problems could be solved by sleeping, not therapy. "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," Claire said, adding that she sometimes can "just be in need of a nap. »
