Claire Danes in real life is not the Carrie Mathison you see on Homeland. It turns out Danes has a wee bit more fun than her onscreen counterpart, who keeps busy by fighting international terrorism.
The Shopgirl actress, who has one child with husband Hugh Dancy, confessed on The Late Late Show Monday that she sometimes gets a little wild with her "mommy" friends. Although her partying days are mostly behind her, she and her gal-pals find some time to let loose.
"Mommys are a deceptively dangerous bunch," she confessed. "When they're not with child they've got to cram it all in."
Danes, mom to 2-year-old son Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy, revealed that when she has a little too much to drink she turns into a party animal...who loves to dance. But there's a catch!
"I like to dance, and I get very bossy as a dancer," she admitted. "I'm like a bossy dancer. It's terrible and I start giving people lessons."
