Lena Headey and Jimmy Kimmel Exchange Insults Game of Thrones Style

by at .

As Cersei Lannister on Game of Thrones, Lena Headey quaffs wine and dishes out put-downs with the best of them.

In fact, she earned several spots on out list of Game of Thrones' best insults.

The folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live apparently recognized Lena's unmatched talent for doling out burns between sips from her goblet.

During her appearance on the show last night, she and Jimmy poured some red and went medieval on one another in a GoT-style diss-off.

Lena kicks things off in brutal fashion with, "That's a lovely tie. It's a shame it's around such a worthless neck.

Jimmy counters with, "Well, thank you for coming today. I know you have a busy schedule doing sex with her brother."

Yup, he really went all in with the incest joke right off the bat. We hear that's a sensitive topic in the Lannister household. Let's hope Tywin's more of a Fallon fan.

As always, of course, it's not so much the content of Cersei's insults but the way she spits them out at her opponents. Even without her golden hair and robes, Lena slips right into lionness mode as soon as she starts delivering Cersei burns.

It's a hilarious face-off and while Lena remains the queen of the quick-witted jibe, Jimmy hold his own admirably.

We think this one ties Hodor on Family Feud as our favorite GoT-inspired Kimmel sketch.

Check out some of Jimmy's most memorable segments in the gallery below. And if you're already jonesing for more Westeros wit, you can always watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic.
