Actress Anne Hathaway sent Claire Danes a bouquet of flowers as a peace offering after she poked fun at the Homeland star during a skit on U.S. comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live.

The Devil Wears Prada actress was hosting the programme on 10 November (12), when she donned a blonde wig and feigned a tearful meltdown as bipolar Cia agent Carrie Mathison in a parody of the popular Tv drama, which earned Danes a Golden Globe Award on Sunday (13Jan13).

The new mum has yet to see Hathaway's portrayal, but she jokes it must have painted her in a unfavourable light - because the Les Miserables star apologised just days later by sending her a beautiful floral arrangement.

She tells Elle magazine, "I'm friends with Anne, and she sent me a lot of texts beforehand that say, 'Oh God, I hope we'll be friends afterwards.' And then she sent me a very large bouquet of flowers, so I'm assuming it was not the most flattering description."
