She may play the ultimate Queen Bitch in ‘Game of Thrones’, but it seems that some people find it hard to make the distinction between Lena Headey and her character, Cersei Lannister.
Headey revealed just how much she’s had to put up with – from a journalist, no less – while appearing on ‘Running Wild with Bear Grylls’ on NBC recently.
Grylls asked her how she was with the press on ‘Game of Thrones’, and after admitting that she found it ‘horrible’, she then recounted a story with one journalist that happened when she was 7 months pregnant.
“Yeah, you have to do these things for all the awards and everything where loads of people interview you,” she said. “I went in and was seven months pregnant and [there was] a whole room of journalists, and this guy stood up and he said, ‘Uh I just want to say that you’re really disappointing in real life.'”
As if that wasn’t rude enough, he added insult to injury by asking Headey “‘Is that your real hair?’ And I went ‘Yeah’ and he said, ‘The wig is much better. I like you as a blonde.'”
She added: “I was like, ‘OK.’ I was just crushed. How is that alright to say?”
Watch her toughing it out with Grylls in a clip from the show below:
Game Of Thrones star Natalie Dormer insists TV sex scenes should be ‘dirty’ in a bid to reflect real ‘human life’
She stripped off for a series of wild sexual encounters while playing the sensual part of Margaery Tyrell in Game Of Thrones.
So it’s no surprise Natalie Dormer made the bold claim that sex on television should be ‘dirty’ to reflect what really goes on between the sheets in real life.
The Game Of Thrones actress, 36, freely expressed how the romps filmed in Game Of Thrones aren’t ‘glamorized’ but in fact ‘quite real’ in an interview with The Sun.
Natalie told the publication: ‘Sex and romance is a huge part of human motivation. So long as it’s informing the story then I don’t see the problem.
‘But I think Thrones is quite good in that way. The violence is quite naturalistic.
‘It’s not hyper-stylised. It’s not glamorised. And the sex is quite real and dirty as well. It’s about those raw, visceral qualities of human life.’
Natalie grabbed the eyes of viewers with her racy sex scenes, topless sequences and eye-popping wardrobe choices during her time on HBO series Game Of Thrones.
Fans grew to love the scheming character who plotted to marry into the crown in a desperate bid to have power over the kingdom.
Yet the cunning character met her match when Cersei Lannister (Lena Headley) has her murdered in an explosion which rips through the courts in jaw-dropping scenes.
Natalie played out her last scenes as Margaery in the sixth season of the epic adventure series and she has since moved onto other parts.
Despite having hung up her heels as the crown-hungry beauty, the star eagerly told Bustle she was aware of how the series finishes.
‘They’ve been shooting a lot of battle sequences… it’s the fight to the finish,’ she told the online site.
The Hunger Games star’s most recent venture sees her take on a leading role in the movie she co-wrote In Darkness.
Natalie slips into the part of a blind musician who gets dragged into the criminal underworld after hearing a murder committed in the apartment upstairs.
