The ‘promotion’ for PBS’s art series ‘Art21’, which Claire will be hosting this season, has begun. W Magazine has recently talked to her about her culture diet – books, TV shows, movies, songs and more.
PBS’s much beloved art series “Art21” is getting a makeover this season, shifting its focus to the cities artists live in. Plus it’s adding some Hollywood star power with a new host, Claire Danes. The actress got into the art world early on growing up in Soho with two artist parents, and in between filming “Homeland” and raising her three-year old son in Brooklyn, she found time to get to know the Chicago, L.A., Mexico, and Vancouver scenes too – not to mention names like Nick Cave, Barbara Kasten, and Theaster Gates for the new season of “Art21.” Get a taste of her taste before the season premiere next Friday in her culture diet, here.

The official website for VOGUE Magazine posted an article about the play ‘Dry Powder’, which stars Claire and actor John Krasinski. We have addedthe featured image to our gallery, and you can read the text below.
Claire Danes and John Krasinski star in the Public Theater’s Dry Powder—a vicious and hilarious drama skewering the people who skewer our global economy.
The catastrophic results of financial recklessness can be found everywhere these days—in headlines, on movie screens (The Big Short). Now the human cost of ruthless greed is coming to the Public Theater in Dry Powder, the 33-year-old Sarah Burgess’s scathingly funny, remarkably assured play about the battle for the soul of a private equity firm, starring Claire Danes and—making his professional stage debut—John Krasinski. Directing is the brilliant Thomas Kail, coming off the triumphs of Hamilton and the live-network-TV broadcast of Grease to helm a chamber piece, albeit one that goes for the jugular. “I had such a strong reaction to the confidence and muscularity and precision of Sarah’s writing,” says Kail, who is staging the play in the round. “I wanted to get all of us as close to the action as possible, to create a mini-colosseum where we could watch these characters crash into each other.”
The official Charlie Rose youtube channel has uploaded a clip from Claire’s recent interview, in talks about her character Carrie Mathison and what fans of the Showtime series “Homeland” can expect from season 5.
A few videos of Claire’s interview for Howard Stern were posted to the show’s official youtube channel. She talks about being contractually obliged for 7 seasons of ‘Homeland’, being validated after winning an award and people she would like to work with. You can watch the videos below, and we have also added a transcript of the interview under the cut – thanks to MarksFriggin.com!

Claire is featured in the upcoming issue of People Magazine, in which she talks about Hollywood Body Bullying and sexism. Two images from the beautiful photo session for the issue have been added to our photo gallery, and we’ll be keeping an eye out in case more are released.
Many actresses agree that being a woman in Hollywood isn’t easy, and Claire Danes is raising her voice in support of her fellow actresses and the criticism they’ve confronted about their size. “I feel like my body is monitored and commented on infinitely more than my male counterpart,” the Homeland star tells PEOPLE.
“I remember a couple of Emmys ago, Lena Dunham and I were on the carpet together. We were singled out and criticized for having different body types – I was too skinny and she was too big. She is a dear friend of mine, and it made me angry because this is just how we are.”
Danes was recently nominated for her sixth Emmy Award for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for her role as Carrie Mathison on Homeland (the role itself has netted her two Emmys and four nominations).
Of the body-shaming criticism that women in Hollywood face, Danes says, “We just take it for granted that it’s acceptable and we really internalize that as normal and fine, and it’s not.”
