Claire Danes Talks Marriage and Admits to Being a "Sales Slut"

Claire Danes looks elegantly casual on the cover of ASOS Magazine's May issue. She can also be seen on the most recent cover of Vanity Fair accompanied by other leading ladies in TV series. The 32-year-old wore ASOS spring styles for the shoot at the Chateau Marmont in LA during January, fresh off a best actress in a TV series Golden Globe win for her role as the bipolar Carrie Mathison in Homeland. In the issue, Claire dished about her series. She also spoke about her home life with husband Hugh Dancy, her personal style, and getting nostalgic with her Romeo + Juliet leading man Leonardo DiCaprio. Here's more from Claire Danes in ASOS Magazine:

  • On her upstate NY home with Hugh Dancy: "The country house is beautiful — there is nobody around except cows, so no judgments. I can look like absolute hell, and not worry about it. . . I was terrified when we moved in that it would be haunted. It’s not. Well, if it is, it’s haunted by very happy people."
  • On Romeo + Juliet with Leonardo DiCaprio: "That was a lot of fun. If you’re going to be an ingénue, that’s the one to be — the ultimate. I saw Leo the other day and in some ways, our dynamic is absolutely the same, but then it’s like, 'Oh, but wait, we’re big fat grown-ups!'"
  • On her personal style: "I’m a sales slut. I’m just very seduced by a sale. In New York buying clothes is fun, because it really is boutiquey. I like Legacy and Opening Ceremony, and I love Prada. I have a lot of J Brand and Citizens of Humanity jeans. It’s funny with jeans now, because if they don’t feel like a pair of sweatpants, I don’t have patience for them anymore! I think I’m becoming increasingly lazy."
