Well, it wasn’t a snake.
Playing with host James Corden and her fellow guests — director Paul Feig and Veep‘s Sam Richardson — Longoria repeatedly expressed her concern that she’d be forced to get cheek to cheek with a serpent.
And, after surviving one round nuzzling a disco ball, Longoria just barely faced her fears: She snuggled a lizard.
“Is it an animal? Is it an animal?” Longoria asked, after blindly feeling the reptile’s scaly skin. “Is it a possum?”
Growing increasingly concerned, Longoria lamented, “What is it? Oh God, oh God.”

Finally, Corden guessed the animal’s identity, putting an end to Longoria’s hilarious facial reactions.
Corden then turned to his showrunners, saying, “Are you f—— insane?”
Though he correctly guessed his cuddle buddy, Corden noted, “It’s a hollow victory,” while Feig and Richardson were in hysterics.
