Claire Danes worried about weight

New York: Claire Danes worried about gaining too much weight during her pregnancy.

The ‘Homeland’ actress, who has two-year-old son Cyrus, admits she kept a close eye on her diet while expecting him because she feels a lot of pressure to live up to Hollywood’s perfect standards.

The 36-year-old star said: ‘’I feel like my body is monitored and commented on infinitely more than my male counterparts. I was mindful of what I was eating because I didn’t want to look pregnant. I think I was very anxious because I was responsible for this huge show, but I had this other major project of growing a person.’’–GN

She told PEOPLE magazine: ‘’He’s a ‘Homeland’ baby through and through. Little tiny Cyrus in the ops room, saving the world from Armageddon! He loves it.’’

Schumer unsure of movie future

New York: Amy Schumer ‘’doesn’t know’’ if she wants to make more movies because she finds the audition process frustrating.

The 34-year-old comic has earned rave reviews for her debut film ‘Trainwreck’ but thinks she’d rather stick with her comedy series as she hates the audition process. She said: ‘’I don’t know if I want to be in movies. It’s like this. She’s pretty, but not gorgeous, the funniest person in the room. Then you go in and the casting director says, ‘Wow that was good.’ Then your agent says, ‘They loved you’ then you call a week later and say, ‘Have we heard anything?’ and they say, ‘No but you’re still in the mix.’–GN

‘’Then you forget about it and that summer you see the role is being played byJessica Biel. Everyone seems like acting in movies is the brass ring. But after doing one I feel like, ‘OK, I get that that’s appealing but it’s not like, ‘Well now I’ve done a movie I can’t possibly go back to my stupid TV show.’’’

However, the ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ star is also harbouring other career ambitions. She told Empire magazine: ‘’You know, I’m thinking of going to dental school.’’

A source said: ‘’Charlize and Sheryl have been perfect for Jen to talk to. ‘’Their kids are still young, and they both waited to have them later in life, so they really understand what Jen is going through. ‘’Naturally, Jen has been worried about finally doing it, but Charlize assured her that everything would be absolutely fine.–TC

She’s told Jen there are so many ways to meet mums and she’ll introduce her.’’

The 46-year-old actress has been particularly thankful for the advice and guidance Charlize - who has three-year-old son Jackson and reportedly adopted a baby girl named August last month - has given her on the adoption process.

The source told LOOK magazine: ‘’Charlize has told Jen to expect endless interviews as she goes through the process. And she has said she’ll be there for her every step of the way.’’
