Claire Danes didn’t need any makeup to look stunning as she stepped out in New York City on Tuesday with her toddler son Cyrus in a stroller.
She opted for a laid back combination of jeans and a loose-fitting grey cardigan, layered over a plain black top and comfortable flat black shoes.
The star added a touch of bling as she wore a simple long silver chain with a hanging pendant.
The working mum chose to pull her blonde hair casually away from her face, putting it back in a messy bun.
Cyrus, who turns three in December, looked cute and casual too, in jeans, just like his mum, cool trainers and a long-sleeved lime green top.
The ‘Homeland’ actress took a break from her acting career to attend the prestigious university in 1998 and she decided to do so because she was unable to relate to other people her age and worried it was becoming a ”problem”.
She said: ”I wanted to try and socialise myself because I was starting to feel a bit strange, a little on the fringe of my generation, my contemporaries. I was a problem.
”Did it work? Yeah. UI learned how to think in an analytical way, how to basically read and write and I wasn’t a freak anymore. And I knew how to hang!”
The 36-year-old star loves playing Carrie Matheson on ‘Homeland’ but is also keen to take on a more ”human” role, as well as turning to dance again.
She told Britain’s Marie Claire magazine: ”I’m still exploring Carrie, but the architecture is there. Maybe I should do something on a slightly more human scale, where the takes aren’t so very high and where I’m not actually saving the world.
”Actually, I would love to dance again but I’m going to be middle aged in, like, two seconds. But Juliette Binoche did a dance piece when she was in her forties, didn’t she? If she could do it, maybe I could.”
