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]
