Expectant mom Claire Danes is a guest on "Anderson Live," and the actress acknowledges that she and Anderson went to the same high school in New York City.
Although Claire is younger than Anderson, and only went to the school for a semester, the "Anderson Live" producers photoshopped a hilarious prom photo of Claire and Anderson together. After seeing the photo, the actress laughed, "Oh my lord!"
Claire jokes that her high school years were "amazing," and that she was "fully formed." She says during most of her high school years, she was busy filming HBO series, "My So-Called Life," and moved from New York City to Los Angeles for the show.
The Emmy-nominated actress also talked about her hit TV series, "Homeland," in which she plays an intense CIA operations officer trying to capture a terrorist in Washington D.C.
Danes, who is married to actor Hugh Dancy, is pregnant with their first child and receives a few baby gifts from Anderson.

Guest blogger Catherine McCord of Weelicious.com shares some of her unique lunch recipes for the back-to-school. Here are Catherine's suggestions… enjoy!
1. Eye Appeal
Eye appeal is just important as the way something tastes. Try cutting things into different shapes and sizes! If you put in a boring sandwich, take the extra step to cut it out with a cookie cutter.
2. Make Kale Chips
Try taking an otherwise "boring" vegetable and serve it in a different form. Catherine likes to use steamed kale to make kale chips. It tastes like a potato chip - the flavor is intense, it has a nice crunch and you can add salt!
Try baking these delicious and healthy homemade kales chips for your kids (from Weelicious.com) rather than potato chips…even sweet potato and carrot chips would work!
1 Bunch Kale
1 Tbsp Olive Oil or Canola Oil Spray
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Wash and remove stems off the kale and cut leaves into 2 inch pieces.
