With its shocking pink and baby-blue vinyl walls and amoires topped with giant tiaras, Cynthia Rowley's store on South Robertson Boulevard looks like a little girl's room an seen through the eyes of Tim Burtin. [...] Claire Danes wore Rowley's long striped silk shantung dress in fuchsia, aqua and pistachio with coordinating gold shoes for her high school prom. [...]

Page 34, 2nd paragraph: [about southern lawyers] This time out, Grisham allowed Francis Ford Coppola to direct his newest opus, The Rainmaker [...] In a subplot, [Matt] Damon takes up the cause of, and falls in love with, a young, battered wife--make that a very young, battered wife, inasmuch as Claire Danes has been cast in the role (and rumor has it the subplot got made a bit less "sub" to accomodate her).

Danes' Designs
Don't think for a minute that just because Claire Danes is one of the busiest young actors out there, she's been neglecting her studies.

Spies of ours spotted the young beauty amidst a class full of other kids this past Saturday in Santa Monica, diligently filling in those pesky circles with her No. 2 pencils. That's right - the big movie star was taking her S.A.T.s, and taking them pretty seriously. We're told she wanted to nail them because she has set her sights on attending Yale like her idols, Michael Lewittes and Jodie Foster.

We also hear Danes wants to continue making flicks while in college, but only during school breaks. Danes can currently be seen in To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday and will soon appear opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo and Juliet. And she's slated to start production on Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of John Grisham's Rainmaker and then on Oliver Stone's Stray Dogs.

Oscar Bait - To Gillian On Her 37th Birthday
...The Oscar buzz, if indeed this film takes off at the box office, is likely to be the talented young actress Claire Danes, who rose out of her praised portrayal of a schoolgirl in the admirable TV series failure My So-Called Life to blow off a few socks as Beth in 1994's Little Women. In Gillian, Danes has a crucial role as the daughter who suffers from dad Gallagher's inability to deal with mom Pfeiffer's death. Danes gives performances that are delicate and authentic - they elicit tears instead of jerking them - and she is made to order for the Academy, which is ever on the lookout for young actresses to reward with nominations.
