"President Bill Clinton asked if I would come and meet him in some special room, so I just hung out with Bill Clinton," the actress revealed to Access Hollywood. "He was talking to Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, and I thought, 'Wow'."

She added: "He's amazing. He's, you know, an icon!"

Danes revealed that the former president is an ardent viewer of Homeland, a series which also counts current US President Barack Obama among its fans.

"[Clinton] very sweetly said that he appreciated how the character is kind of shedding light on mental illness, which is still a taboo subject," she recalled. "So, that was very flattering and I was very touched."

Homeland swept the Golden Globes on Sunday, taking the 'Best Television Series (Drama)', 'Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama' for Danes and 'Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama' for Damian Lewis.
