Emilia Clarke Talks Being Treated Differently Because She's 'Got a Pair of T*ts'
By John Boone
Emilia Clarke doesn't want to be treated differently just because she's "got a pair of t*ts."
The 29-year-old actress covers the July issue of Harper's Bazaar U.K., where she talks about the female-driven set of her movie, Me Before You, which was directed by, written by and produced by women -- a change of pace for the Game of Thrones star.
"I'm normally surrounded by dudes. Doing Me Before You meant I didn't have to be continually proving myself in a man's world, having to try and force people to listen to me," she explains. "I've got a really strong mum. I was brought up thinking that men and women are equal."
"It's only as I've got older that I've been like, "Mum! What the f...? Why are they treating me differently because I've got a pair of t*ts?"" Clarke adds.
Clarke also opened up to the magazine about the perks of wearing Daenerys' iconic blonde wig on the HBO fantasy series and how it helped her handle her growing fame.
"The joy of that wig is that I've had years to come to terms with where I'm at," the Mother of Dragons herself says. "It's easier to handle because of it. You're like, 'OK, I feel comfortable. Everyone's nice. I'm not surrounded by paparazzi.'"
That could all change, if Clarke gets her dream gig: playing James Bond. Now that our latest 007, Daniel Craig, is out, she wants to throw her name in the ring with possible contenders like Tom Hiddleston.
"I have a lot of unrealized dreams. I would love to play Jane Bond," she told The Daily Star U.K. "My ultimate leading man would be Leonardo DiCaprio. No doubt about it."
We would watch that movie.
