Actress Claire Danes covers the February 2013 issue of Elle in a Just Cavalli embellished top. She's also wearing a C. Wonder bracelet, Bulgari stainless steel watch and Cartier yellow gold and diamond necklace. In the Elle interview, Claire discusses having children, her husband Hugh Dancy and teenagers growing up in Hollywood today.

On Teenagers Growing Up in Hollywood Today: "When I was younger, I was a little bit more restless, but there weren't as many eyes. There weren't as many tabloids or the number of cameras that everyone's armed with. I feel huge sympathy for teenagers who have suddenly found themselves as public figures now, because it just sucks for them."

On Having Children: "I've always wanted to have kids, but I'm glad I didn't until now. When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it...I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn't suit me. I feel so fortunate, in that I've had this arrow-straight focus...that I wanted to act."

On Her Husband Hugh Dancy: "Hugh was just the right partner for me. I got very, very lucky. There's only so much credit you can take when it just sort of works, you know? And obviously we work hard at maintaining our relationship-that is central to both our lives-but at the same time, it's just this kind of ease that I can't really account for."
