Emilia Clarke Was Plied With Vodka for Sexy Cover Shoot
Emilia Clarke was “drunk and Photoshopped” for her sexy Esquire magazine cover.
The Game of Thrones star is seen laying naked on a bed with just a tiny piece of a sheet protecting her modesty for the November cover.
Her brunette hair is tousled and she is seen looking sultrily into the camera. But achieving such a perfect frame took a lot of time and more than a little drop of drink.
“That was a funny shoot,” Clarke said of the pictures during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday. “Doing those kind of sex scenes on camera is one thing, but doing it as yourself, I need alcohol to do.”
“They (the crew) just kept giving me vodka. That’s me drunk. That’s me Photoshopped and drunk!”
Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones, an adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s book series of the same name. The show features its fair share of sex scenes and nudity from its female stars, although there has been criticism that the male actors don’t strip off as much.
However, Clarke insisted in a recent interview that she’s had her fair share of naked love interests too.
“I want to bring your memory back to Mr. Michiel Huisman and I copulating for the first time, which began with me saying, ‘Take off your clothes,’ and then you got to see his perfect bottom,” she told Glamour magazine.
She also has some ideas for her character’s future on the show – many of which involve more male nudity.
“I want to see Daenerys and her three dragons share the throne,” she mused. “Eat goat they’ve barbecued. And bring back all the pretty boys, get them to take their trousers down, and be like, ‘I’m now the queen of everything! I’d like close-ups of all the boys’ penises, please’.”
