I will admit it: When Claire Danes, all angles and plunging gown, started talking about her baby at the Golden Globes, I said to my husband, “She had a baby? I don’t look like that at all.” But immediately after I said it, I was already bored with the discussion. He doesn’t care and I don’t actually care -- it’s just an easy thing to say. Because it’s what everybody says.
