Claire Danes Asked Beyonce This 'Inappropriate' Question

Claire Danes Asked Beyonce This 'Inappropriate' Question

Claire Danes made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night and she told a story where she asked a “not appropriate” question to Beyonce once at an awards show!

It all started when Bey and Claire were backstage together an an awards show.

“I was at a fashion award thing, and we were both going to present. We were backstage in this little area, and she was wearing this bedazzled jumpsuit and a giant hat, and it was just everything you want BeyoncĂ© to be.” (FYI – Claire didn’t name the show in question but we believe it was the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards, where Beyonce wore an outfit similar to what Claire described! See photos in this post!)

“And I got really stupid. Like, my brain just stopped working. It’s intense. It’s her, right? I was talking, I was saying words and she said words back. And she said that she was a fan, I remember that distinctly. She said, ‘My husband and I really love your show, we watch it all the time.’ I was like, ‘That’s amazing,’” Claire said of their encounter. “And she said she had just finished her tour. And I said, ‘Oh, wow, you must be exhausted. Are you gonna take a little break, or something? And she said, ‘Yeah, yeah. We’re gonna go on vacation.’”

“I was like, ‘Really? Where are you gonna go?’” she continued. “And she said, ‘Yeah, no, we’re thinking about it.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, my God. You cannot ask BeyoncĂ© where she’s going on vacation!’ Like, that’s not appropriate. That’s not something you do!”

“I said, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, no. Of course, yeah.’ And so, then they called me on stage and I was very happy about that, that we could end our conversation right there. But she was lovely and charming and I was just a nervous freaking wreck,” Claire added.
