Who knew Lena Dunham and Claire Danes were so tight? While Ryan Seacrest was interviewing the "Girls" nominee on the Emmys red carpet, "Homeland" star Claire Danes snuck up behind her for a hug session complete with loud squeals. "Seacrest out, Danes in!" quipped Lena. Their love fest continued as they mock-interviewed each other and marveled at meeting like 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," said Lena. Claire responded: "I know. It's totally wackadoodle!".
Claire revealed that they met through a mutual friend but grew up in the same neighborhood -- and says Lena got her addicted to the ABC show "Scandal." What else did we learn? They wish they could work together "but she's on a Showtime show and I work on HBO," Lena lamented. "We're going to have to wait until there's a less turf war-ish situation." Added Claire: "It's very Capulet and Montague." We'll leave you with one last nugget from their love-fest: "She's my favorite actress," said Lena. Gushed Claire: "She's my favorite everything." Awwww!
