Claire Danes Covers 2012 British GQ.

Homeland star Claire Danes covers the September 2012 issue of British GQ magazine.

Danes wore a Ralph Lauren Black Label halter maxi dress for the cover shot and in its pages, the 33-year-old actress talked about how she turned down the lead role in Titanic, shares more about her Homeland character and being away from her husband while filming in North Carolina:

On her admiration for Carrie Mathison, whom her ‘Homeland’ character is based upon:
“She’s like my kinky superhero alter ego now. Because as disturbed and troubled as she is, she’s always f—ing right. Which is so nice because I so rarely am.”

On turning down the lead role in the blockbuster movie ‘Titanic’:
“I had just made a romantic epic with Leonardo [DiCaprio] – it just seemed redundant to me. The problem is that I always took myself too seriously. Now I realize I should have lightened up. I was a serious kid to an absurd degree. I was overwhelmed with responsibility, trying to play grown up. I overdid it.”

On being away from husband Hugh Dancy while filming ‘Homeland’ in North Carolina:
“It sucks. Seven years, it’s a long-a– time. But every year I’m going to have something really compelling to do.”
