Emilia Clarke: “If you work hard enough and you’re not a douchebag, people will hire you for your talent over the fact that you’re super skinny.”

Posted on 3 min read 42 views

After catapulting to fame through HBO’s Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke has learned quite a bit about the industry and herself.

The actress recently spoke with The LA Times, where she shared her views on romance, body image in Hollywood, and more.

Here’s what she had to say:

On The Pressure to be Thin in Hollywood:

“I feel like so many women in this business don’t speak truthfully about what they put in their body. They’re, like, ‘I eat pizza all the time and I don’t work out!’ It’s, like, no. You’re a twig. You’ve got a [expletive] eating disorder and you’re not talking about it. And that’s annoying.”

“For me, I got to a point where I was, like, ‘Wait a second. I, Emilia, care more about the size of someone’s brain than the size of their ass. So why should I care if someone is looking at me and judging the size of my bum over my brain? If you work hard enough and you’re not a douchebag, people will hire you for your talent over the fact that you’re, like, super skinny.”

On The Idea of Fairytale Love:

“We’ve been brought up with these fairy stories and Disney being, like, ‘happily ever after,’ so we look for that magic when we’re adults. We look for it in yoga or, ‘If I hold this crystal, it’s going to make me feel better.’ We do that even in this modern day and age, where Netflix and chill is the only choice.”

On If She’s Netflixed and Chilled:

“Oh, honey, I can’t get on no internet [dating] site! I’m not going to be, like, ‘Daenerys is ready! Swipe right, people!’ Everything that I’m doing right now is because I feel like doing it. It’s pretty dope. I think that when you sit there waiting for someone or something, you’ll wake up and be, like, ‘Oh, I didn’t live a life’. If you just get out there and say yes to stuff, then even if you don’t get a boyfriend, you’ll get a friend or a great meal. Or bankloads of beards for your brain.”

On Her Character in Me Before You:

“I just felt so much that someone had written me down — that a part of myself was written in a book. She wants to be happy. She’s got this innocence that I — after six [expletive] years in this industry — I’ve lost. What I’ve managed to go through within this industry has, I think, given me a maturity at a speed which I wouldn’t have normally had. I was forced to grow up and take responsibility for myself, because whatever mistakes you make? You can’t be putting nothing on no one. You have to be cool with the choices you’re making.”

Posted on 1 min read 41 views

Nick Jonas made a surprise appearance on BBC Radio 1 this week when he crashed Emilia Clarke‘s interview with Nick Grimshaw.

Nick revealed that he’s a huge fan of both Emilia and her instagram, which he embarrassingly admits to having told her the first time they met at an Oscars afterparty.

“She posts great stuff,” Nick said when asked why he likes her instagram. “Like inside into the show [Game of Thrones], behind the scenes pictures and stuff.”

During the interview, Nick also got to ask Emilia about Game of Thrones.

“The thing that I’m most curious about is, do you ever see the other cast members?” Nick asked Emilia.

“No! …It’s just me and the Dothraki.” Emilia answered, revealing that everyone else films together except her.

Check out their interview above!

You can catch Emilia in Game of Thrones every Sunday night on HBO. Her new movie Me Before You also hits theaters tomorrow (June 3).

Nick will also be releasing his new album Last Year Was Complicated on June 10.

Posted on 1 min read 39 views

As an actress, Emilia Clarke often gets to star alongside some pretty hunky guys on-screen.

However, the Game of Thrones star recently revealed to People that the guys she stars alongside aren’t necessarily her type!

“I know, they are so dreamy!” Emilia says in the new issue of the magazine. “Every character I’ve been with has been too perfect.”

“Genuinely my ideal man is someone who, I know every woman says this but I mean this from the bottom of my heart, someone whose brain is as big as their funny bone,” she says.

“I want someone who is super smart, can make me laugh, has like a dad bod. I don’t need no six-pack. Like, I ain’t kicking it out of bed for sure, but every character I’ve been with has been too perfect.”

Emilia Clarke on Game of Thrones: “That ain’t no body double!”

Posted on 2 min read 39 views

After last night’s episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, some fans were left wondering if Emilia Clarke uses a body double while filming nude scenes for the show.

The actress recently chatted with Entertainment Weekly, where she dished on the show and cleared up any rumours about a body double.

WARNING: Contains Spoilers from the May 15th episode of Game of Thrones

“It’s so exciting, very tingly-making,” Emilia says of the burning scene from last night’s episode. “Every season I get at least one spine-chilling moment. I just stand up and I go, ‘I’m hearing what you’re all saying, but funny thing, I’m going to kill you all. I forgot that I have an ace in my back pocket and now I win.’”

“She realizes that this is the missing piece,” Clarke says of taking out the Dothraki leadership. “The Dothraki are the missing piece of her crew – she’s seemingly indestructible having Dothraki on her side.”

As for her nude scene, Emilia says:

“I’d like to remind people the last time I took my clothes off was season 3,” she says. “That was awhile ago. It’s now season 6. But this is all me, all proud, all strong. I’m just feeling genuinely happy I said ‘Yes.’ That ain’t no body double!”

“Taking off my clothes is not the easiest thing, but with the magic of the effects, I don’t have to do a season 1 and go on a cliff and do it. I’m in control of it.”

Emilia Clarke to Star in New Thriller ‘Above Suspicion’

Posted on 1 min read 40 views

Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke has just been announced as one of the stars of Phillip Noyce‘s upcoming thriller Above Suspicion.

Emilia will topline the film alongside actor Jack Huston in the film adaptation of the novel written by New York Times columnist Joe Sharkey.

According to Variety, Above Suspicion is: “the chilling true story of a newly married FBI poster boy assigned to an Appalachian mountain town in Kentucky. There he is drawn into an illicit affair with an impoverished local woman who becomes his star informant. She sees in him her means of escape; instead, it’s a ticket to disaster for both of them. This scandal shook the foundations of the nation’s top law enforcement agency, ending in the first ever conviction of an FBI agent for murder.”

The movie will be produced by Colleen Camp, and is set to begin principal photography later this month.

In the meantime, you can catch Emilia in the sixth season of Game of Thrones every Sunday night on HBO. Emilia’s new romance movie Me Before You will also be hitting theatres later this summer.

Emilia Clarke Shows Off Her Accent Skills on The Ellen Show

Posted on 1 min read 54 views

Actress Emilia Clarke paid a visit to The Ellen Show for Thursday’s episode (April 14), where she sat down to talk about the massive success of Game of Thrones and play a game of Heads-Up.

When asked about the moment she realized how big Game of Thrones was, Emilia admitted: “I think there’s a huge part of me that still doesn’t quite see that it is.”

However, she revealed: “Me and my brother used to watch a lot of The Simpsons growing up, that’s what we watched all the time. And I remember the day he called me, I think it was season two, and he called me and he was like, ‘Dude! Get on YouTube now because you are The Simpson’s opening!’ and I was like, ‘Oh my god we made it! We did it, that’s it!'”

Emilia also played a fun game of Heads-Up! with Ellen, where she showed off all her different accents – including a Valley Girl accent, French accent, and Italian accent.

You can catch Emilia in the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones, which premieres on HBO on Sunday April 24th at 9/8c.
