Emilia Clarke: Game of Thrones producers manipulated me into doing more nudity

Emilia Clarke: Game of Thrones producers manipulated me into doing more nudity
Emilia Clarke was naked a lot in Game of Thrones, the first season especially. In later seasons, Emilia?s character, Daenerys, would still drop trou, but often it would shot around her so nothing was really showing, or the brief nudity would be ?empowering? for Dany. But yeah, the first season was bad Emilia was constantly in a state of undress. I thought/hoped that was probably all contractual, and worked out with Emilia and her agents far in advance. Turns out, not so much. Emilia chatted with Dax Shepherd?s Armchair Expert podcast, which you can hear here. Emilia spoke about how she was basically pressured and manipulated by producers to do more nudity than her contract covered.

Emilia Clarke has revealed that she once refused to perform a nude scene on the set of a project, despite being told that it would ?disappoint? her Game of Thrones fans. While discussing on-screen nudity with Dax Shepard on his podcast Armchair Expert, the Last Christmas actor recalled being asked to perform a nude scene she hadn?t agreed to in advance.

?I?m a lot more savvy [now] with what I?m comfortable with, and what I am okay with doing,? she explained. ?I?ve had fights on set before where I?m like, ?No, the sheet stays up?, and they?re like, ?You don?t wanna disappoint your Game of Thrones fans?. And I?m like, ?F*** you.??

Clarke also revealed that she felt overwhelmed by what she described as the ?f*** ton of nudity? in the first season of Game of Thrones. ?I took the job and then they sent me the scripts and I was reading them, and I was, like, ?Oh, there?s the catch!?? she remembered. ?But I?d come fresh from drama school, and I approached [it] as a job ? if it?s in the script then it?s clearly needed, this is what this is and I?m gonna make sense of it? Everything?s gonna be cool.

She continued: ?So I came to terms with that beforehand, but then going in and doing it? I?m floating through this first season and I have no idea what I?m doing, I have no idea what any of this is. I?ve never been on a film set like this before, I?d been on a film set twice before then, and I?m now on a film set completely naked with all of these people, and I don?t know what I?m meant to do and I don?t know what?s expected of me, and I don?t know what you want and I don?t know what I want? Regardless of there being nudity or not, I would have spent that first season thinking I?m not worthy of requiring anything, I?m not worthy of needing anything at all Whatever I?m feeling is wrong, I?m gonna cry in the bathroom and then I?m gonna come back and we?re gonna do the scene and it?s gonna be completely fine.?

She went on to explain that it was only while working with Aquaman actor Jason Momoa, who played her on-screen love interest Khal Drogo, that she realised that she could set her own rules about how much of her body she was willing to show. ?It was definitely hard,? she said. ?Which is why the scenes, when I got to do them with Jason, were wonderful, because he was like, ?No, sweetie, this isn?t okay.? And I was like, ?Ohhhh.?

[From The Independent]

Big props to Jason Momoa for doing something to protect her and for telling her that?s not the way it?s supposed to work. Jason and Emilia are still very close, and I get the feeling that?s how it was from the start, that he was protective of her. Iain Glen was another one I remember interviews with him where he spoke about how green and inexperienced she was in the first season and how he would often try to figure out ways where Emilia would not have to be so naked in front of so many people on set. But yeah, GoT producers were gross and exploitative. We knew that. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss ruined all of it.

Also: I?ve been reading a lot of those actress-roundtable discussions and actor-on-actor series, and some of the actresses have been talking about the immediate changes they saw when #MeToo and Time?s Up started happening. Films have been hiring ?intimacy? coaches or various protective middlemen to come in whenever there is a sex scene or when an actor is nude, and the coach is there to tell the director what is and is not allowed contractually and to stand up for the actresses, etc. The actresses seem to like the protective measures being taken now, although clearly those practices are A) very recent and B) not widespread.

Matt Damon: you?re not supposed to pee on jellyfish stings, take a bath

Matt Damon: you?re not supposed to pee on jellyfish stings, take a bath
Matt Damon appeared on Ellen DeGeneres? talk show last week to promote Ford vs. Ferrari, which I hope to see this weekend. He mentioned that he was jet-lagged, having just finished filming in France. He is loopy and it?s kind of funny. Due to his rambling during the interview, he and Ellen cover a variety of tidbits to various degrees of success. Like, when Matt talked about his DNA results, Ellen deemed his story boring, so she cut him off, which made me laugh. She quickly moved on to Matt?s buddy Chris Hemsworth, which always makes me happy. When Chris appeared on Ellen last year, he talked about some of the harrowing adventures Matt?s had in Australia, like stepping on a giant snake. He also talked briefly about Matt?s daughter, Stella, being stung by a jellyfish, which, according to Chris, was one of the worst he?s ever seen. So Ellen asked Matt about it, including if anyone peed on poor Stella to take the Sting away. Dr. Matt said no, no one did, because that myth is a load of bunk.

The interview is queued up to Matt?s Australia stories, starting with the snake story. The transcription is just the jellyfish part:

My daughter Stella [9]. Got stung by a jellyfish.

Did someone have to pee on her?

I?d been stung by a jellyfish, once in Hawaii, like we were fishing for the day with some friends of mine who were all, ?I?ll pee on ya?.? But it turns out, that?s just something that someone made up because they thought it was funny. What you?re supposed to do is put somebody in a really hot bath and get a sponge and gently remove the tiny little needles that are in you when one stings you so you brush them out.

[To the audience] Okay, so nobody has to pee on anybody

Or just stay in America

The fact is ? Matt is 100% correct. There is no basis for the ?pee on it? recommendation. The idea was that urine would neutralize the pain. It does not and can make it worse. Instead, douse the area with vinegar to deactivate the stinging cells. And, as Matt said, pluck out all the tentacles. Heat will help alleviate the pain, thus the hot bath. And don?t pee on a stingray wound either same deal, it doesn?t work. Ugh, I?m just cringing at the thought. I?m so scared of jellyfish/stingray stings. My poor brother got stung by a stingray when we were at my folks. His daughters and I were teasing him about getting someone to pee on him as he soaked his foot at the lifeguard station with a bunch of other victims (none of us paid attention to the signs). Needless to say, he did not find it amusing as he endured the pain (and a week later Steve Irwin died from his stingray attack). So for the love of gawd dont get medical advice from Friends.

In the second half of the interview, Matt talked about being driven 200 MPH by 80-year old Mario Andretti at the Indy 500. How bizarre am I that the thought of a jellyfish Sting terrifies me, but I would give my eye teeth to get in a race car with octogenarian Mario Andretti?
