Claire Danes Relives Going To The 'Showgirls' Premiere With Her Mom As A Teen

"It doesn't get more inappropriate than that."

Claire Danes' parents were not about shielding her as a child. 

“My parents had no concern about my psychic well-being, and they subjected me to every- and anything in the culture," the actress told W magazine for the October Royals issue. "When I was a teenager, I went to the premiere of 'Showgirls' with my mother. It doesn’t get more inappropriate than that, but I survived. I do think there's something to be said for letting kids decide what they’re ready for and what they aren’t.” 

Danes is one of a handful of stars crowned by W as a "new" or "classic" royal, appearing on the magazine's special covers. While Danes discussed the risque "Showgirls," Allison Williams talked about her own work on the no-holds-barred "Girls." 

“I might be the one who has the most sex on 'Girls,'" she said. "I’m like an old pro now. These actors come on the show and they’ve never had sex scenes, and I’m like, ‘I’ll take care of you, honey. I’ll treat you right.’ It’s weirdly easy at this point: Maybe I should be in 24-hour therapy, working on what real love is and what simulated love is.”
