Lena Dunham Instructed Gaby Hoffmann To “Dance Like Claire Danes” For Her Role On “Girls”

Lena Dunham Instructed Gaby Hoffman To "Dance Like Claire Danes" For Her Role On "Girls"
Watch Gaby Hoffmann On "Girls"

“I don’t dance exactly like that. But Lena and I have a mutual friend, the incomparable Claire Danes, who is not just an amazing actress but a really fantastic dancer, and Claire and I dance together, pretty seriously. And I think Lena was imagining some sort of strange combination of Claire moves plus me moves plus Caroline moves. I guess when I dance, and maybe specifically when I dance with Claire, it’s a bit more Dancing with a capital D than it is dancing at a club. That’s how Lena saw it, at least. I remember her saying, ‘You know how you and Claire can kind of dance? That’s what I was imagining.’”

The new season of “Girls” is off to an interesting start, especially thanks to the appearance of Gaby Hoffmann in Sunday’s episode. Hoffman plays Adam’s quirky, hippie-dippie and at times mentally unstable sister Caroline, who vacillates between being super zen and pretty unhinged. Hoffmann spoke with NYMag.com’s Vulture blog about the role, and explained that she channeled mutual friend Claire Danes’ signature moves for the second scene above (there are two clips, one after the other).

Claire Danes & Hugh Dancy Have A Big, Serious Baby On Their Hands

Big, serious babies are the best. And Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy’s son Cyrus may just be the most adorable big, serious baby of them all. That head! Those cheeks! That expression! My ovaries are in a tizzy. He just looks like a Cyrus, doesn’t he? Click on to see a couple more photos of this little nugget. [Photos: Pacific Coast News] Keep reading »

Claire Danes Has Her Own Generation Now

“There are thousands of beautiful actresses in the world, women who look great in evening gowns and close-ups, their chins never wobbling, their eyes never puffy. I don’t think our Claire would have any interest in being one of them … That’s why we love her—she gives it to us straight, good or bad, just like a real friend would. Sometimes life gets ugly, and she’ll take us there, unafraid…It’s that unironic diligence that moves me most, her obvious enthusiasm to do good work. Luckily for us, Claire chooses to share her crumple face and her elegant face and all her faces in between. It’s just what we all would like to think we’re capable of, professionalism kissed by something better, a hint of the sublime.”

–Author Emma Straub so poetically describes why she’s part of “Generation Claire Danes.” It all started with Angela Chase’s “crumple face.” It certainly did. Please count me in. [Vogue]

carrie cries on homeland
Broooooooooody!

You guys! Season three of “Homeland” is almost upon us. This new trailer for the season reminds us of where we left off — with Brody off hiding in the wilds of Canada — and gives us a glimpse into the lives of the rest of the characters. Plus, good news: Carrie is still doing that chin-quivering ugly-cry thing she does so well. Never change, Carrie.

Remember how at the end of last season somebody blew up the CIA and framed (or didn’t frame) Brody? Remember how Brody left his wife for a lost weekend in the woods with Carrie? Remember Saul? (Sorry Mandy Patankin, I totally forgot about Saul.) We have no idea what’ll happen this season, but we do know there’ll likely be some weird jazz interludes, explosions, and lots and lots of running. I can’t wait! [YouTube]
