Claire Danes, Sexy, Cool In Face of Hectic Work, Family Life (pics!)

Claire Danes is starring in her fourth season of ‘Homeland’ while balancing her home life, which includes her 17-month-old son.

Claire Danes, who has it all–career, husband, family–says she’s learned the hard way that motherhood is not for wimps. But she manages to look sexy, cool and collected in a new photo spread for the UK edition of Harper’s Bazaar.

The 35-year-old actress is returning for her fourth season of her hit show “Homeland.”

She plays CIA agent Carrie Mathison, who battles a bi-polar personality while nursing a sneaky suspicion that colleague, Nicholas Brody, a former marine sniper, is an al-Qaeda sleeper agent.

Life at home isn’t quite as complicated, but Danes tells the magazine that balancing work, marriage and her 17-month-old son Cyrus is a process in itself.

She married actor Hugh Dancy in 2009, and says have a child has presented new challenges.

“Being a mom is incredibly challenging, but we still feel a pressure to talk about it in very romantic terms,” she says,

And it’s not just that; We all have that resentment at times and anxiety about being trapped by the role, that responsibility.”

For her photo spread, Claire poses for photographer Alexi Lubormirski, wearing an embroidered organza Zac Posen gown and Harry Winston jewelry. Leith Clark handled styling for the magazine.
