We've some resentment about the role: Claire Danes on motherhood
Actress Claire Danes says that adjusting to motherhood is not easy and that most of the mothers "have that resentment at times and anxiety about being trapped by the role".
The "Homeland" actress, who has a 21-month-old son with husband Hugh Dancy, shared her views in an interview to Harper's Bazaar magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The 35-year-old star told the October issue of the magazine: "Being a mum is incredibly challenging, but we still feel a pressure to talk about it in very romantic terms. And it's not just that. We all have that resentment at times and anxiety about being trapped by the role, that responsibility. And then chemically it can run riot... And there's no 'off' button.
"(For me) that was the hardest adjustment. You always feel beholden to somebody... And for so long they're like koala bears, you just feel a physical responsibility to be there for them to cling to. It's pretty primal."
