In the interview, host Seth brought up that the 40-year-old actress had recently discovered there was a porn parody of the hit spy Showtime drama: “Umm, yeah!” she said, delighted. “I thought Mad Magazine was cool. SNL was cool. But a porn? You know your work has resonated.”

On whether she knew what it was called: “I don’t know! And I don’t think it was very impressive.”

Claire Danes also discussed working with her husband Hugh Dancy again for the first time in several years and what we can except from the end of Homeland.

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 Beyoncé 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 Beyoncé 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.

Claire Danes Reveals Which Celeb Helped Her Use the Bathroom at 2016 Met Gala

Claire Danes is revealing that is was very difficult to use the bathroom in her 2016 Met Gala dress, designed by Zac Posen, and now she’s revealing which celeb helped her out!

“People still also talk about the dress you designed for me for the 2016 Met Gala,” Claire told Zac in an interview for Town & Country. “I mean, they talk about it as one of the most remarkable things that I’ve ever done in my life. And I’m sort of like, ‘Well, I have an amazing friend.’ But I was glad that we got to share that.”

Claire added, “I was careful not to imbibe any liquids, because the bathroom situation was not easy. I remember I went in there before it was too crowded, and Uma Thurman was in the bathroom and she helped me.”

About the dress, she added, “It was great on the red carpet, but it really came alive inside the museum. People’s mouths would just fall open, it was so pretty.”

Claire Danes recently revealed which iconic movie role she turned down.

Claire Danes Says It Was 'So Hot' Watching Hubby Hugh Dancy Film 'Homeland'

Claire Danes very much still has the hots for her husband Hugh Dancy.

The 44-year-old actor has landed a role as a presidential advisor in the eighth and final season of Claire‘s hit Showtime series Homeland – in which the 40-year-old actress plays lead character Carrie Matheson – and though they didn’t share any scenes together, Claire has revealed that she would go in on her day off because she loves watching her husband work.

“That was such a nice way to end the show. I didn’t have a single scene with him, but on my days off, I would go to his set. He’s very good,” Claire expressed about Hugh in Net-A-Porter’s digital magazine Porter. “I don’t exactly forget that, but we don’t talk about acting much, so it was a really nice reminder. [Watching your partner do something they are really good at] is so hot.”

Pictured: Claire Danes spotted making her way out of the CBS Studios to film an appearance on CBS This Morning on Monday morning (February 3) in New York City.

Claire Danes Confirms She Turned Down 'Titanic' Opposite Leonardo DiCaprio & Doesn't Regret It At All

Claire Danes is recalling turning down the lead role in Titanic opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, just after they had wrapped filming Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet together.

She was asked if it was true while appearing on Dax Shepard‘s podcast.

“I think I did. I’m not entirely clear on that. There was strong interest, but honestly, like, I’d just made this romantic epic with Leo in Mexico City, which is where they were going to shoot Titanic, and I just didn’t have it in me. And I remember, Leo and I shared a manager at the time, and we were there at the office. I was on a balcony, which is funny [because of Romeo + Juliet]… and Leo had this rental red convertible, some, like, hot rod-dy car. And he was kinda going in circles in the parking lot. And I knew he was wrestling with the decision to do that movie or not and he just looked up at me, and he said, ‘I’m doing it. I’m doing it.’ And I could see he wasn’t sure, but he was like, f*** it, I gotta do this thing.’ And I looked down on him going, like, I totally understand why you are doing it. And I’m not ready for that,” Claire explained.

Claire didn’t regret the decision at the time, and the role ultimately went to Kate Winslet. The movie became a smash hit.

“I remember I went to the premiere of The Man in the Iron Mask [in 1998], and when he walked into the room, the floor fell in his direction,” she continued. “Everybody in the room just went towards him. And it was a little scary. I think I may have sensed I was courting that, and I just couldn’t do it.” She added that she had “zero regret” about the decision.

Leonardo was finally asked if he would have fit on that Titanic door and here’s what he said in response!
