When compared to her sex-siren roles, Claire explains that “pretty much all the roles I’ve ever played, or at least the ones that have made my name, have been hard-bitten man-eaters. I’m the polar opposite of the women I’ve portrayed and incredibly conventional when it comes to love, romance…and marriage. I’m really a very down-to-earth, country girl at heart”
