Emilia Clarke Talks Games Of Thrones Nudity: Alcohol Gave Me Courage To Get Naked

Emilia Clarke said alcohol helped her through her nude scene on season 6 of ‘Game of Thrones.’

Emilia Clarke said alcohol gave her the courage she needed to do her nude scene on season 6 of “Game of Thrones,” when Daenerys emerges naked and unscathed from a burning hut (see video).

Emilia, who had originally signed a no-nudity clause, has since done lots of nude scenes on Game of Thrones, but felt empowered by her latest one.

“All I needed was vodka and some flattering lighting and I was ready,” Clarke told the Sun. “It was just a wonderful, strong moment I wanted to own, a real empowering, girl-power wow scene.”

While Clarke gets self-conscious about being naked on film (as any actor does), she thought nudity was appropriate in this particular scene, where Daenerys destroys her enemies.

“I was so thrilled with it,” said Emilia. “It’s not a sexy scene. She’s not naked for no reason. It’s not gratuitous. She’s naked because she just destroyed her enemies in this almighty blaze after they underestimated her.”

Clarke recently declared there should be as much male nudity on GOT as there is female nakedness.

“I feel like there’s a little bit of inequality between the amount of nudity that happens with women – this woman in particular – and what happens with the guys,” Emilia laughed. “I just think that it should be even. Free the penis!”

“Game of Thrones” has been slammed by TV critics and women’s groups for its gratuitous nude and sex scenes, which some complain is done purely for titillation and ratings.

Emilia Clarke stopped Googling herself after being ruthlessly fat-shamed after her numerous nude scenes in “Game of Thrones,” as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

“I remember when everything first kicked off, I Googled myself,” said Clarke. “But never again. It just takes that one person who says: ‘She’s a fat b*tch,’ and you’re like: “I’m a fat b*tch!”
