Claire Danes Hiding Pregnancy on Homeland

Claire Danes Shares a Hilariously "Embarrassing" First-Trimester Story That Happened While Filming

Claire Danes may be a CIA agent on Homeland, but behind the scenes, she was just a snoozefest trying to hide her pregnancy. After recently announcing she and husband Hugh Dancy are expecting their second child together, the 39-year-old actress appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where she shared some hilarious anecdotes about her first trimester. "You just feel horrrrrrrible," she said. "You just feel rotten and you're not allowed to say why."

"I was filming quite a lot, and just inadvertently falling asleep all the time, and it was embarrassing," Claire said, detailing one instance when she got carried away during an unintentional nap. "I just face-planted onto this crocheted bag in between takes. . . and it was time for my close up and I sit up and I have this crocheted indentation all on the side of my face. It looked like I had third-degree burns. It was intense. They were massaging my face. They had to get out the blow dryer."

She added, eyes wide and hand over her face: "I halted production for a good half an hour. I just felt like an idiot." Watch the video above and prepare to laugh when Claire compares her womb to an AirBnb ("I'm cohabiting in there").
