It’s an indisputable fact that Claire Danes has the best crying face in all the land. From Angela Chase to Juliet Capulet to her current role as Carrie Mathison on Homeland, no actor, male or female, can crumple their strong features into a blubbering, sodden mess quite like her.
In honor of this stellar achievement, someone has started a blog called “The Claire Danes Cry Face Project” which consists of, you guessed it, photos and animated GIFs of the talented Ms. Danes in all her distraught glory. It’s rapidly accumulating examples of the Cry Face from the various phases of her career, not limited to, but including:
Igby Goes Down Cry Face (just looking at it makes me want to cry all over again):
Brokedown Palace Cry Face (never take a gap year, kids!):
My So Called Life Cry Face (Jordan Castellano is not your friend):
Romeo and Juliet Cry Face (avec beret):
And of course, lots and lots of Homeland Cry Face:
She just keeps getting better at it.
