Everyone knows that funny gals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are besties, but one of the biggest surprises out of the red carpet for the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards was when Lena Dunham and Claire Danes made the world a better place by brightening up the screen.
While Ryan Seacrest was interviewing Girls star Lena, Claire snuck up in the corner of the screen and interrupted the interview. Girl talking ensued. Lena and Claire revealed that they grew up in the same neighborhood and that they are super close — even though the don’t get to see each other very often.
Perhaps the most adorable moment was when Lena said that she had told Claire to binge Scandal when visiting her after giving birth to her baby. Let’s get real, these girls know good TV and when you’ve got some down time, why not marathon one of the hottest shows on? Kerry Washington’s Olivia Pope is a fixer, and one of the things she’s best at is turning a boring evening into a crazy D.C. thriller.
But what happened to Ryan? “Seacrest out, Danes in,” Lena said when the TV host tried to cut back in on the interview. “Are we ruining your life,” she asked?
Ryan insisted that they were totally fine, and we’re glad that he can take 5 and let us catch up with our new favorite bestie pairing.
