“It’s arguable that being in love and being mentally ill are sort of similar [laughs]. But it’s true I went through this ardourous decade and it did get a bit tiresome after awhile — you want to be defined in some other way. I was frustrated by that”, Claire explains to Flare.

“Carrie is perceptive but her fixation on keeping the world safe is so intense that it overrides that. She also has to be so vigilant in maintaining her own well-being. She has a bomb ticking inside of her that she is always monitoring”, Claire points out to T.
For her editorial, photographer Cass Bird captures Claire on the streets of Tel Aviv, where a few episodes of the upcoming second season of ‘Homeland’ were filmed. Claire wears Fall designs from Reed Krakoff, Valentino, Hermes, Armani, Comme Des Garcons, Calvin Klein, Christopher Kane, Jil Sander, Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren.
The 30-year-old actress, who is also promoting her upcoming film ‘Anna Karenina‘, explains to the magazine why she thinks a period drama as ‘Downton Abbey’ is such a hit in the US.
“I think some period drama can be quite alienating, but Downton isn’t. This is going to sound quite, um, pretentious, but someone said that it’s like a soap written by a poet. I used to get quite defensive of people saying it’s soaplike, but it kind of is”, Michelle tells Bazaar.
“I had just made a romantic epic with Leonardo (Dicaprio) –- it just seemed redundant to me. The problem is that I always took myself too seriously. Now I realise I should have lightened up. I was a serious kid to an absurd degree. I was overwhelmed with responsibility, trying to play grown up. I overdid it”, Claire shares with GQ.
Pop-art extraordinaire Lady Gaga is renowned for her elaborate theatricals, flamboyant outfits and even making an uncredited pre-fame cameo in Emmy-winning television series ‘The
Sopranos’ in 2001. Now the 26-year-old songstress will once and for all get to prove her acting skills, as she is set to make her acting debut in Robert Rodriguez’s action exploitation film ‘Machete Kills’ — the sequence to the 2010 ‘Machete’.
A sexy teaser poster for the movie, set to hit theaters in 2013, sees Gaga in character as La Chameleón. The ‘Born This Way‘ singer dons a strapless bodysuit and thigh-high stockings, while cuddling a white wolf-headed fur stole and holding a smoking gun. Gaga sports a curly old Hollywood bob, with a deep side part, as well as vintage heavy mourning jewelry pieces.
The Crawley sisters — Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery), Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael) and Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) — star on the three different high-fashion and ethereal covers of the magazine, captured by noted photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Hunky Rob James-Collier is also featured in the magazine. Check him out after the jump, as well as one more preview of Jessica.

Let’s be honest it has been Her Majesty Melissa McCarthy’s year. From an Oscar buzzworthy performance in ‘Bridesmaids’, to winning an Emmy for her role in ‘Mike & Molly’, to even scoring one of the most memorable ‘Saturday Night Live’ hosting gigs and planning to launch her own plus-size clothing line.
So it’s only appropriate that the 41-year-old actress channels royalty on the cover of Entertainment Weekly magazine’s annual Comedy Issue. The heavily bejeweled actress throws the deuces sign up in the air, donning a Dame-esque gray wig and a white gown with matching pristine white gloves, as she clutches a dog.
Dubbed the ‘New Queen Of Comedy’ by the magazine, Melissa in her interview talks about being one of comedy’s most sought-after actresses, even though she’s not a typical looking Hollywood star.
“Do I sometimes hope I wake up in the morning and people are like, ‘What’s wrong with her? She looks emaciated’. Of course I would love that. I’m such a clothes whore I would love the opportunity to be a hanger. But I think I’m more confident than I’ve ever felt in my life”, Melissa explains to EW.
The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards were held in Los Angeles last night, September 18, where some of television’s biggest stars came out in numbers to rub shoulders in honour of celebrating excellence in the 2011 season’s primetime programming.

It will appear red was the colour of the night, with Lea Michele, Kate Winslet, Sofia Vergara, Nina Dobrev and more opting to shine in red.
