Actress Claire Danes admits she sometimes resents being a mother.

The 'Homeland' star, who has a 21-month-old son Cyrus with husband Hugh Dancy, said marriage is hard but insists she is besotted with both of the men in her life, reported Contactmusic.

"Being a mum is incredibly challenging, but we still feel a pressure to talk about it in very romantic terms. And it's not just that. We all have that resentment at times and anxiety about being trapped by the role, that responsibility. And then chemically it can run riot... And there's no 'off' button.

"(For me) that was the hardest adjustment. You always feel beholden to somebody...And for so long they're like koala bears, you just feel a physical responsibility to be there for them to cling to. It's pretty primal," she said.

Danes, 38, loves watching her son grow up, but said he recently started to have temper tantrums.
