You’d never know by watching her play the villainous blonde Cersei Lannister on ‘Game of Thrones’ that actress Lena Headey has a thing for tattoos!
The 39-year-old posed for Esquire’s April issue, and we’re getting a better look at what the natural brunette is all about! The actress reveals a love for tattoos. “It’s funny how tattoos seem to scare people. There’s something about it that I love. I find it calming. At the end of the day, you’re just decorating skin. I hate seeing myself covered up.”
In a show that’s as sexually charged as ‘Game of Thrones,’ how does the actress hide all her tattoos? “You can usually get away with it by keeping your clothes on,” she says.
In the mag, Lena opens up about playing Cersei … and what her future holds. “All I know is my character isn’t dead yet,” she jokes. “And that’s great, but I don’t take anything for granted. I’m sort of like a T-Rex in the world of female actresses. Every time a job is finished, I look at my car and think, ‘Could I live in it?’”
Though most actors would likely love the break after shooting the third season of a successful show, Headey considers herself unemployed. When asked what she’ll do upon returning to Los Angeles, where she’s lived for six years, she says, “I’m going home to beg for work.”
She is incredibly beautiful, isn’t she?

Lena Dunham, creator/writer/often director and lead in HBO’s award-winning series Girls is not super pumped about her whitewashed casting choices, and she wants to make a change.
Speaking at the Fortune Magazine‘s annual Most Powerful Women Summit, Lena revealed that she felt:
“Heartbreak at the idea that the show would make anyone feel isolated. [Because] all I want to do is make women feel excited and included by the show.”
That being said, Dunham made a commitment to her audience that Season 2 of Girls will include:
“A multitude of new characters in the show. There are some of color. Some are not. Some are Caucasian.”
Honestly, I know diversity is great and all, but I’d rather not see it shoehorned into a show that has such a specific perspective. I’m glad Dunham’s addressing these issues, but it isn’t her responsibility to show EVERY woman’s perspective, EVER.
