Happy Birthday Claire Danes! Here's 10 Reasons Why We Love You

12 April 2013 by

Today is Claire Danes' 34th birthday - woot! The actress has kept us glued to our screens playing teen Angela Chase in 'My So-Called Life' back in the '90s and as CIA agent Carrie Mathison in 'Homeland'. Ms Danes has won two Emmy Awards and four Golden Globes, kissed Leonardo DiCaprio in 'Romeo & Juliet', captured Abu Nazir in 'Homeland' and loves the Brits (her hubby is our very own Hugh Dancy). Oh, and her crying face has gone viral. So to celebrate Claire's birthday we've summed up the 10 reasons why we love her...

1. She was the ultimate '90s TV icon in 'My So Called Life'

2. She's bagged really hot Brit actor, Hugh Dancy

3. She was super charming even aged 17

4. She has the best cry face.

and again...

Will this ever get old?

We don't think so...

5. She's an award-winning actress who's a pro at speeches

6. Along with Damian Lewis, she's part of one of the hottest on-screen couples.

7. Appaz she turned down the part of Rose in Titanic...

8. ...but she still got to kiss Leo in 'Romeo & Juliet' which - let's be honest - was way cooler.

9. She has a winning red carpet formula consisting of many Calvin Klein beauties...

...and has also worn a few shockers that somehow make us love her more.

10. Also, she made the most dreamy fallen star in 'Stardust'
