British actor Damian Lewis was left red-faced when his female fans bombarded him with sexy knickers.
I got knickers from them. It was a globally coordinated knicker-fest
The Homeland star was stunned when he received dozens of pairs of underwear in his mail following a "globally coordinated" campaign by his army of women followers.
He decided to throw the saucy gifts out with his trash - but he was mortified when a passerby rifled through his bin and dumped the knickers in the street.
Lewis tells U.K. chat show host Graham Norton, "I got knickers from them. It was a globally coordinated knicker-fest. Forty pairs of knickers were sent. There were granny pants from Wisconsin and cheeky little feathery thongs from Australia. "It was very odd.
When I chucked them out, someone went through all the rubbish and there was literally a trail of knickers down the street".
