(AP) Claire Danes, interior designer?


The "Homeland" actress says she considered a change of careers when she went through a stretch where she couldn't find a good role.


In an interview for Vogue's August issue, the 34-year-old says she didn't work for two years after starring in the 2010 biopic "Temple Grandin," which earned her an Emmy and Golden Globe. Danes said she couldn't just take any role after playing Grandin, an activist for autistics and animal rights.


Danes calls it a grim experience that left her so hurt that she flirted with a career change. Says Danes: "I really like interior design."


Of course, Danes didn't have leave acting. She landed the role of Carrie Mathison on "Homeland," and it has earned her an Emmy and two Golden Globes.
