Claire Danes on Her Post-Baby Bod at the Golden Globes: I Haven't Lost All the Baby Weight
There were a lot of beautiful women in beautiful dresses at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 13. But for a while, at least, all eyes were on new mom Claire Danes, who walked the red carpet in a sexy halter-style number less than a month after giving birth to son Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy, her first child with husband Hugh Dancy.
The Homeland star, 33, looked incredible in a red Versace gown that showed off her slim waist and toned arms. But she claimed she still had a ways to go before she got her post-baby body back to her pre-baby weight. Asked how she dropped all the pregnancy pounds so quickly, Danes told Us: "I haven't yet!"
"I am very strapped into this dress," she joked later in the press room, after accepting the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Drama. "This is Versace, and they are really masters of illusion. I literally can't go to the bathroom unless I take the entire dress off. So, there [are] some serious things involved here."
Of course, it helped that the petite blonde never put on a ton of extra weight while carrying baby Cyrus. "I was on my feet a lot during the pregnancy," she explained of shooting Homeland nearly to full term. "I was working hard. So I didn't have an opportunity to gain much."
What she did gain was a brand new perspective on life. "It's been a huge joy, this experience of becoming a mom," she told reporters of her newest role. "I don't know how to articulate it yet because it is so fresh."
The star, whose son was upstairs at the Beverly Hilton with her parents, also noted earlier that the awards show was her first big night out since giving birth in December. "I'm kind of startled to be in this scene, because I've been so sequestered," she told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. "I've been in baby world."
So what's the biggest difference between baby world and Hollywood? No days off! "I get some sleep, but I just think, like, 'Okay, it's another 4 a.m. call, which I have a lot on set, working in film and television.' So I'm sort of used to being sleep deprived. But this is taking it to another level, and there isn't a weekend off," she said in the Globes press room. "There's no break."
Not that she's complaining. Motherhood is "delicious and the best thing ever," Danes gushed. "So it's very motivating -- the smell, just the scrumptiousness."
