Reading bad reviews of “Homeland” helped Claire Danes get through labour.
The 39-year-old appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday night and the host was quick say he felt guilty that she had to be on the show while pregnant with her second child.
“Everything’s just a little more complicated when you’re knocked up,” Danes said.
One of those complications: compression stockings.
“I definitely have to wear them when I fly,” Danes explained, adding: “I hate these things.”
Kimmel also asked how things went for Danes during her first pregnancy and it turns out she had a pretty unusual way of dealing with going into labour.
When she couldn’t sleep, Danes decided to see what people were saying about the “Homeland” finale which had aired that night.
“It didn’t take long to find the worst possible reviews available on the Internet,” she said. “It kind of occurred to me, I think I’m in labor, I think this is happening and I’m reading bad reviews. It don’t think it gets more masochistic than that.”
