Emilia Clarke as Khaleesi is definitely badass, but man, the fact that she dated Seth MacFarlane feels very un-Khaleesi. But hey, Emilia’s the actress, not the fantasy goddess. She’s on the cover of this issue of Glamour, talking about GoT and DATING. We’ve got the highlights:
GLAMOUR: Do you ever borrow from Khaleesi in real life? During a contract negotiation? In romantic relationships?
EC: Like, “I’m gonna throw some Khaleesi down on this situation”? My God. No. I think I can safely say that Khaleesi has never come out in my relationships. I don’t think. Possibly. There might have been moments when I’ve had to pull her out at the last minute! However, if I feel like something is really unjust, I wouldn’t turn on Khaleesi. I’d turn on my other alter ego, Cali from the Valley.EC: [The robot] in Ex Machina. I mean, Alicia Vikander is brilliant in it. Looking at the performance now, I was so wrong for it. Aside from Daenerys, I’ve never wanted a role as much as Louisa—
GLAMOUR: That’s a con for sure. Are you dating someone now?
EC: No. I’m just chilling. I’ve got a good thing going.
GLAMOUR: You know you have the same tattoo artist as Drake.
EC: Amazing! He gave me a bumblebee [on my pinkie finger]. Up next is a dragon—obviously a metaphorical dragon, a single-line drawing or something. I’m not getting a cartoon dragon on my tits!
GLAMOUR: You also dated Seth MacFarlane. Any pros and cons of dating someone who’s in the public eye versus someone who’s not?
EC: Well, a con is you have strangers giving you love-life advice like, “I’m a big fan of the show, and I’m not sure what you’re doing with that guy,” which I didn’t react well to. That happened in New York when Seth and I were together. This guy started to give me advice: “Can I get a selfie? And by the way…” Unh-unh, bro.
