Claire Danes Teaches Cookie Monster About Diagrams, Does Not Once Break Into Tears

"Homeland" star Claire Danes took on a decidedly less stressful role this week on "Sesame Street."

In this priceless gem of a video, the -- in case you lost track -- three-time Emmy award winner teaches Cookie Monster all about diagrams. Her pupil is pretty distracted and mostly just wants to know if there are any cookies inside, or in any way related to the diagrams. But Danes takes it in stride -- luckily, she's had some experience in parts where nobody will listen to her.

Enjoy!
