Claire Danes Drops the F-Bomb Playing Fallon’s ‘Fast Family Feud’

You'd think she'd be used to interrogations! Homeland star Claire Danes got totally flustered during a fast-paced game of Family Feud on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday, March 28 — and her language got away from her!

The 36-year-old actress looked stunning in a form-fitting brown dress and appeared somewhat nervous as Fallon introduced her to the game, explaining the rules. As soon as the game began, she was quick on the buzzer — but not quick enough!

"Name something you call someone when you can't remember their name," the show host asked his guest.

"Dude!" yelled out an excited Danes, not realizing it was Fallon's turn to answer, causing her to then let out the F-bomb!

Claire Danes lets out an inappropriate word! NBC

"Fudge, fudge!" she said afterwards, apologizing for her slip.

Her answers only got funnier (and actually brought Fallon to the floor at one point!) before she got a chance to answer the final round question, which was surprisingly appropriate: What's a clean word you can say instead of a curse word?

Watch the video above and see if Danes' dirty mouth helped her win the game!
