If there's one thing we know about Emilia Clarke, it's that she's unafraid to open up and speak her mind — whether she's discussing the gender pay gap, her life-threatening experience of brain aneurysms or thoughts on the fate of her character at the end of Game of Thrones.
But now Emilia has got brutally honest about the sexist questions she received as a result of appearing in a nude scene during the first season of Game of Thrones.
Emilia revealed that she became so "pigeonholed" and hounded about her decision to appear nude, that she actually ended up turning down an offer to take the lead role in Fifty Shades of Grey.
"It's annoying as hell," she went on, "And I'm sick of tired of it because I did it for the character. I didn't do it so some guy could check out my tits, for God's sake."
Emilia added that she knew taking the role in Fifty Shades — a movie that centred on "sensuality and sex and being naked" — would mean never being able to object to that line of questioning in the future.
