Claire Danes has revealed that she got a special request to hang out with President Bill Clinton, who she says is a fan of her political thriller "Homeland."

The "Homeland" star told Access Hollywood that Clinton had asked her if she would come and meet him in some special room, after they both appeared at the Golden Globes, the Politico reported.

Danes further said that when she arrived, she saw Clinton talking to Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson and thought that it was amazing, as he is an icon.

She further said that Clinton is a fan of her show and he very sweetly said that he appreciated how the character is kind of shedding light on mental illness, which is still a taboo subject, which she found very flattering and touching. (ANI)
