Claire Danes Hijacks Seacrest Interview

By: Lacy Langley - September 23, 2013

Claire Danes looked nothing like Carrie from her hit show “Homeland” on the Emmys Red Carpet. She certainly didn’t act like her character when she totally interrupted an interview to enthusiastically greet her good friend Lena Dunham right in the middle of her telling E!’s Ryan Seacrest, that all through last year’s Emmys, she felt like urinating. Apparently the two grew up in the same New York City neighborhood, and met through a mutual friend.

Danes garnered lots of attention with her new golden bob to go with her sparkling Armani dress. She looked beautiful as the girls squealed like old pals and gushed about each other, totally forgetting Seacrest, and Claire even snatched the mic away from Ryan and began her own interview of Dunham:

“Seacrest out, Danes in,” Dunham quipped.

“How do you feel being here tonight?” Danes asked, laughing, before quickly admitting, “I’m so bad at this!”

“I’m really excited because you’re my really good friend and I never get to see you except for on the E! red carpet!” Dunham gushed.

“I know, it’s totally wackadoodle,” Danes agreed.

“Are we ruining your life?” Dunham asked the amused Seacrest.

“No, this is fantastic,” he insisted. “I’m great, I’m gonna have a beer.”

“I love this lady very much,” Danes revealed. “I love you so much,” Dunham agreed.

It kind of went that way for a while, then:

Danes: “I’m in constant awe of what she does.”

Dunham: “She’s my favorite actress.”

Danes: “She’s my favorite everything.”

Speaking of working together the besties clarified the situation:

Dunham: “I would love to but she’s on a Showtime show and I’m on HBO.”

Danes: “It’s very Capulet and Montague.”

Dunham: “We’ll wait unitl there’s a less turf-warrish situation.”

Danes: “A web series!”

During the lovefest Seacrest interjected, “I feel like we should do our nails.”

Dunham also revealed in the presence of her two friends, that she’s an obsessed Kerry Washington fan. “I stalked her and I met her!” she said proudly. Washington “was really nice,” Dunham added. “She knew I’d been stalking her because I said it to, like, 17 media outlets, so she was really great about it.”
