Claire Danes Sounds Off on Hollywood Body Bullying: 'My Body Is Monitored and Commented on Infinitely More Than My Male Counterpart'

Originally posted 08/11/2015 10:40AM

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," recalls Danes, 36. "She is a dear friend of mine, and it made me angry because this is just how we are."

Homeland Recap: Are Carrie and Quinn Headed for Romance?

Originally posted 10/13/2014 12:45PM

Quinn and Carrie, together? As in, a couple?

Okay, so it hasn't actually happened yet, but it sure seemed to be the running theme on Sunday's episode of Homeland.

We begin the show with Carrie (Claire Danes) assuming her post as station chief in Islamabad, where she meets her first roadblock: a grumpy subordinate named John, who is angry she took the job that was rightfully his.

He disobeys her orders and refers to her as "young lady" in the morning meeting. Big mistake. Huge. Carrie owns him, and later, privately tells him to clean up his act – that she can smell the booze on him. Burn. Point Carrie Mathison!

Drone strikes gone wrong, thrilling chases in the back alleys of the Middle East, Saul, Quinn, Carrie … the gang's all here for Homeland season 4.

Except Brody, of course, who finally died at the end of last season, leaving Carrie both mourning his loss and carrying his baby. (His death was sad, but at least we don't have to suffer through any more weird Dana subplots, so, hooray to that.)
