Claire Danes Vogue August 2013

Actress Claire Danes covers the August 2013 issue of Vogue. Claire was photographed by Annie Leibovitz for the cover shoot. Claire is wearing a Burberry Prorsum trench coat on the cover. Claire's Homeland costar, Damian Lewis, also appears in some of the photos from the cover shoot.

In the interview, Claire talks about deciding to go the college and what she has learned from her actress mentors. She also talked about a dark period when she could not find work for two years.

On Today's Female Movie Stars: "I was confused. I had a lot of opportunity and no way of knowing what I wanted to do with it. I needed to figure out who I was, what I liked."

On What She Has Learned From Actress Mentors: Meryl, Susan Sarandon, Jodie Foster: "You have to pick your battles on set. You have to come to work from a place of love. You have to stay hydrated when you have crying scenes. You have to go to college. And you have to ask for money because there's always more money and they won't give it to you because you're a girl!"

On Not Finding Work For Two Years After Temple Grandin: "It was confusing. I got a lot of plaudits, and it didn't translate into more work. I was really, really struggling during that time. After a while you have to start to doubt yourself. It was grim. I was very hurt. Two years of not working was brutal. And a point came where I thought, I really like interior design. Someone suggested, 'Maybe your real success is in your personal life.'"
