Claire Danes feels more secure since she got married
The `Homeland` actress - who has previously dated musician Ben Lee and `Almost Famous` actor Billy Crudup - tied the knot with British star Hugh Dancy in 2009 and credits him with keeping her happy.
She told The Sun newspaper: "My mom Carla taught me that a long marriage can work. My parents have been together since they were 18 so I am privileged to have them as role models.
"I like marriage. I feel very secure. It helps when you are in love with the person you are married to.
"I do sometimes look at him and think, `You are really handsome.` He keeps me sane and happy."
Claire also explained she turned down Kate Winslet`s Oscar nominated role in `Titanic` because she needed some time apart from leading man Leonardo DiCaprio after they worked on `Romeo and Juliet` together.
She explained: "Is it true I turned down `Titanic`? Yes.
"I have no regrets. I had just made a film with Leonardo DiCaprio in Mexico City for five months [`Romeo + Juliet`] and I was very tired. It would have been ridiculous to do another sweeping romantic epic with Leo.
"I would never have been able to get away from him. He`s a lovely man and a great actor but we needed time apart by then."
