From the mailbag:
For your 'Claire Danes Is Weird' File: When I was writing for my school paper in Chicago two years ago I was part of a group a low-level journalists that did a roundtable interview with Claire Danes and Jason Schwartzman when they were promoting "Shopgirl." When the interview was over Jason Schwartzman went around the table and shook everyone's hand. Claire said, "Oh, you're shaking everyone's hand? That's so nice. I'll communally shake everyone's hand" and sort of waved her hand in the air. I don't know if she's weird, a germphobe or just a snob. But she's hotter in person than in her movies.Man! If Claire Danes really was Angela Chase, we imagine she would have then thought something along the lines of "You know how sometimes the last sentence you said, like, echoes in your brain? And it just keeps sounding stupider? And you have to say something else just to make it stop?" But she's not Angela Chase. It's time for us all to let go of thinking she is.
