But Danes isn’t too concerned. “Homeland” earned her a fourth Golden Globe on Sunday. And she takes those who criticize her “cry face” in stride.
“It’s just the way feelings register on my face,” she told Elle. “It’s been isolated from the rest of my work, like it’s a tacked-on thing. It’s not.” For the record, I don’t think of it as “criticizing” her cry face so much as “celebrating” it.

If you’ve come across the “Claire Danes Cry Face” meme—it began as a Pinterest board and evolved into this viral montage—you’ve seen the meanish, gleeful thrust of the joke: that every scene or movie which Danes is a part of leads inevitably to the moment when her mouth contorts into a grimace, her lower lip trembles, and she lets out a violent sob (or, as last night’s spoof on S.N.L. put it, “her whole face looks like it’s chewing gum”).
I’ll be meanishly, gleefully thrusting some Temple Grandin up in here this afternoon, so feel free to stop back by later.
Holy Press, Batman
So I’m kind of blown away by how much press my weird little Pinterest-project-turned-Tumblr is getting. Here’s some more:

Slackstory wrote an awesome piece about The Claire Danes Cry Face Project today, entitled Help Support the Claire Danes Cryface Project. And I agree, you should support The Claire Danes Cry Face Project. Perhaps with a submission?
Also, stay tuned for a collage of cryfaces from last week’s Homeland. There were too many to pick just one!
