Claire Danes opened up about her thoughts on gender equality and her husband Hugh Dancy, especially his family's French mansion.
In the upcoming January issue of Glamour revealed she didn't think Hollywood doesn't have much equality, reports USA Today. "Yes, women have more freedom and more influence than ever, but it's hardly equal. It's just not."
The Homeland actress continues, "It's really (expletive) 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."
Danes noted that she was grateful that more women are speaking out. "I am a feminist. And I'm so glad that (Girls creator and star) Lena Dunham exists, because she is one, too, and she's quite vocal about it."
The former My So-Called Life actress also admitted that she is not too worried about playing physically unattractive characters on-screen. Danes notes that it comes with the perks that she doesn't have to spend as long in the makeup trailer getting ready, getting out in a fourth of the time it might normally take an attractive on-screen character.
According to Daily Mail, Danes also talked with Live With Kelly & Michael and crowed about her husband and his family's money. "I definitely married up!" she said.
"His family has a house in France," Danes said. "It's the family home where we got married. It sounds fancy doesn't it?" She also noted that when it came to celebrating holidays she spent time with his family on Christmas and Thanksgiving with hers. "He's English but his brother and sister live in Paris," Danes bragged.
