Vogue Interview with Damian and Helen – Jan 20, 2015

No Place Like Homeland

by Vogue | January 20, 2015

“Do you know, I think you might wear a suit better than any man I’ve ever met.” In the intimate and strangely forbidden confines of a lift at the National Theatre, Helen McCrory’s heavily made-up hazel eyes are drinking in her husband’s tall, tailored frame.

“Thank you,” he replies, faintly awkwardly, looking down at the same Tom Ford tuxedo he wore to accept the best actor Emmy award only last month. “Does this mean you want me to do all the washing-up for a week?”

A gypsy laugh bubbles up from deep inside McCrory’s tiny dancer’s body.

“No, my darling, of course not! Just the bedtime stories…”

Damian Lewis Attends Cheltenham Literature Festival – Oct 12, 2014

Damian and Helen Attend Cheltenham Literature Festival

by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | October 12, 2014

Damian loves and supports poetry and so do we! One poetry project he has actively supported is The Love Book, a brilliant collection of classic and contemporary love poems that vary from Shakespeare to E.E. Cummings to Maya Angelou coming together in a book as well as in an app. And it is our utmost pleasure to take you along to The Love Book event we were extremely lucky to attend at Cheltenham Literature Festival.

The reading took place in Times Forum, a huge 1400-seater. There was a giant screen so everyone could comfortably see the entire performance. The couple would stand on opposite sides of the stage and read.

Daily Mail Interview with Helen

 

Nice interview with Helen with some mentions of Damian:

Helen herself hardly seems to have put a foot wrong, both in work and in what sounds like a splendidly sorted private life. She first met her heart-throb husband Damian, memorably described by one critic as ‘the sexiest redhead on the planet’ and now a Hollywood high-flier, in 2003 when they shared a love scene in the play Five Gold Rings at London’s Almeida Theatre. Describing him as ‘the one’, she said he was the first man to make her feel broody. ‘Am I going to have any more children? You sound like my husband,’ she says, laughing. ‘Not at the moment – life has just reached a great equilibrium and I’m very happy.’

But it’s clear that family is very important to Damian, who flew Helen and the children to America to join him for six weeks during the filming of Homeland last summer. And not only does he like to spoil Helen with treats (that Dick Barton coat) but they also keep the flirtatious sparkle going in their marriage with nonstop teasing – so much so that she says they dream of appearing opposite each other as those wittily sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick in Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. ‘Let’s get paid for the banter we enjoy together so much,’ she chuckles.

She and Damian share the childcare as equally as possible, though she admits that they couldn’t do without the ‘indispensable Charlotte, our live-in nanny. And I realise how lucky I am, having talked to other mothers, that Damian gets involved in his children’s day-to-day lives. In two months of filming Homeland, he’s flown back home four times in his few days off. Although that’s tough on him, it makes such a difference. But thank God I’m freelance, so I’ve never been given the choice of either my career or my children – because I genuinely don’t know what I would choose,’ she says.
