"Saturday Night Live" wasn't the first time Damian Lewis has been lampooned for his nearly-closed-mouth style of speaking.
Even the "Homeland" star's son has poked fun at his tight-lipped ways!
"My 5-year-old makes me do that," he told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush on the red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday, when asked to recreate his pursed mouth recently mocked on "SNL" by Taran Killam. "He goes, 'Dad, dad, open your mouth as wide as possible.'
"I [say], 'I am! I am! Stop it!'" he said, laughing.
Damian - who took home the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series Drama for his portrayal of "Homeland's" Brody - said his puckered lips have even been compared to a feline posterior.
"What do you mean 'cat's ass?!'" he told Billy, dissolving into a fit of laughter.
