Emilia Clarke Reveals The Truth Behind *That* Sexy Shoot

Remember that Emilia Clarke Esquire shoot?

In case you’ve forgotten, let us jog your memories. The 29-year-old posed nude for the publication back in October, after they named her their Sexiest Women Alive.

She was snapped in a series of risqué poses, with one image showing her wrapped in nothing but a sheet as she lay seductively on a bed.

Emilia looked quite the pro in the photos. We mean, she has had her fair share of saucy scenes in Game Of Thrones.

But it turns out, she wasn’t actually feeling quite as confident as she appeared.

Speaking on Ellen yesterday, Emilia admitted: ‘That was a funny shoot. Doing those sex scenes on camera is one thing; but doing it as yourself, I need alcohol.

‘They just kept giving me vodka, and I was like “I’m just going to keep the duvet and I’m going to keep the sheet up.”

‘And they’d be like: “3,2,1 go!” and just yank it down. It’s not really naked. That’s me Photoshopped and drunk, that’s what I look like.’

The London-born star went on to talk about the moment she realised the programme was such a huge a success, continuing: ‘So me and my brother used to watch a lot of the Simpsons growing up.

‘Like, that’s what we watched all the time. And I remember the day that he called me, I think it was, like, season two, and he called me and he was like: “Dude get on YouTube, like, now, because you are The Simpsons opening.

‘And I was like: “Oh God we made it, we did it. we did it.”‘
