Claire Danes has received commercial and critical acclaim for her portrayal as Carrie Matheson in the hit Showtime thriller ‘Homeland’. However, the National Enquirer is reporting that since Danes had her baby, she is regretting signing onto the next couple of seasons of Homeland and wants to stay at home with her baby.
The Enquirer’s source says, “Claire has finally discovered the one thing she loves more than acting – being a mom! Before Cyrus was born, Claire would never have thought about giving up her role on ‘Homeland’ because she thought she’s be able to juggle her job with being a mom. But now she doesn’t want to leave her son.”
The source continued, “Claire and Hugh have agreed that he’ll continue working on ‘Hannibal’ [Dancy’s new NBS show], as well as other acting jobs, if she decided to follow through with her plans to leave ‘Homeland’.”
Of course, Danes is getting a huge pay bump for the next two seasons because of all the ratings and acclaim, but that may not be enough to get her to stay, according to the Enquirer. The source continues, “Claire is having regrets about signing on for another season… it’s very likely the execs will eventually offer Claire another huge pay raise if she’ll agree to stay for Season 4, but she’s still leaning towards leaving. Now that she’s a mom, she’s come to realize that the time with her son is invaluable. Besides that, she’s one of the hottest tickets in Hollywood these days. She knows that she can go back to acting any time she wants.”
