London: Actress Claire Danes, who won the Golden Globe award for best actress in a TV series - drama for her role in ‘Homeland’, says she feels more secure after marrying Hugh Dancy.

The 32-year-old, who previously dated musician Ben Lee and actor Billy Crudup, tied the knot with Dancy in 2009, and credits him with keeping her happy.

"My mom Carla taught me that a long marriage can work. My parents have been together since they were 18 so I am privileged to have them as role models," quoted Danes as saying.
"I like marriage. I feel very secure. It helps when you are in love with the person you are married to. I do sometimes look at him and think, `You are really handsome.` He keeps me sane and happy," she said.
