Emilia Clarke is ‘sick and tired’ of being asked about her Game of Thrones nude scenes.
The Daenerys Targaryen actress was taking part in a roundtable interview for The Hollywood Reporter when she was asked about turning down the chance to star in Fifty Shades of Grey amid concerns she would be typecast.
The 32-year-old said: “The last time that I was naked on camera on Game of Thrones was a long time ago, and yet it is the only question that I ever get asked because I am a woman.
“It’s annoying as hell and I’m sick and tired of it because I did it for the character — I didn’t do it so some guy could check out my t*ts, for God’s sake.
“So, that coming up, I was like, ‘I can’t,'” she said about Fifty Shades. “I did a minimal amount and I’m pigeonholed for life, so me saying yes to that, where the entire thing is about sensuality and sex and being naked and all of that stuff, I was just like, ‘No way am I going to voluntarily walk into that situation and then never be able to look someone in the eye and be like, ‘No, you can’t keep asking me this question.'”
Clarke has previously said she has no regrets about her nude scenes – earlier this year, she told the Sun on Sunday: “There’s not one part of the show that I would go back and redo.
“People ask me the nudity question all the time. But the short answer is ‘no’, I would never change anything.
“You had to see those sex scenes, as they couldn’t just be explained.” After eight seasons, final ever episode of Game of Thrones aired early on Monday morning.
