Emilia Clarke Hates Sex Scenes, Apparently Doesn't Watch Game of Thrones

by at .

Even if you've never seen a single episode of Game of Thrones, you're probably aware that the show is as famous for its incredibly graphic content as for its epic world-building and jaw-dropping plot twists.

This means not only are we treated frequent bloodshed, but regular nudity, as well. And in the past, when the Seven Gods were good to us, it meant naked Emilia Clarke.

Unfortunately, those days are done, and Clarke vowed that she wouldn't appear in any more nude scenes at the end of the show's third season.

Co-star Oona Chaplin says Emilia told producers, "I want to be known for my acting, not my breasts." Had we been present, we would've argued that she can be known for all three, but what's done is done.

In fact, rather than going back on her no-boobies pledge, the actress has doubled-down.

Back in March, we learned that Clarke turned down a role in 50 Shades of Grey, and in a recent interview with The Daily Mail, she claimed that she's flat-out not a fan of on screen sex.

"Sex scenes should be more subtle," Clarke says. "I’m British, so I cringe at that sort of thing anyway — I can’t stand it.

"I don’t want to have sex thrown in my face and I’ve always thought the suggestion is so much more titillating than the act itself."

Fortunately for us, she didn't take that stance early in the show's run, and the Naked Mother of Dragons will live on in rerun-form through eternity.

Watch Game of Thrones online to relive some of the series' most boob-tastic moments.
