Emilia Clarke is on the cover of Flaunt‘s The Looming Issue, out now.
Here’s what the 32-year-old Game of Thrones actress had to say…
On fame: “This is not real, this is photoshopping, this is four hours in hair and makeup, this is a dress that I didn’t buy, this is a stylist, this is a professional hair and makeup person whose entire job is to make people look beautiful. I’ve been the person who measures their self worth on those images, and it’s hell.”
On her Game of Thrones character, Daenerys: “Throughout the show I’ve always fought for a sensitivity in her, which they’ve written in. I was like, ‘This is great that she’s getting stronger, but you have to know why. You have to know how much it is costing her.’ I’ve always tried to show that it costs [to get stronger], and it’s not easy. I think that’s as much talking about myself. There’s collateral there.”
On staying strong: “Maybe it’s because my Dad was a crew member as his job, but I see it as my job to never ever let anyone know if you’re having a shitty time. I just don’t think it’s helpful, at all. When I do get the two o’clock terrors and feel like I’m the biggest failure on the planet and I don’t know how to breathe, I pop on Judi Dench’s Desert Island Disc.”
