Emilia Clarke Was So Nervous She Had To Get Drunk To Pose Naked

Emilia Clarke Was So Nervous She Had To Get Drunk To Pose Naked

For a photoshoot.

Watched Game of Thrones? Of course you have, in which case you've probably seen Emilia Clarke's Khaleesi naked.

You'll probably also know that she was voted as Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive.

What you might not know is that she described the experience to Ellen DeGeneres as a "funny shoot."

"Doing those kind of sex scenes on camera is one thing, but doing it as yourself, I need alcohol to do. That's what I needed," she told the chat show host. "They just kept giving me vodka, and I would be like, 'I'm just going to keep the duvet. I'm going to keep the sheet up.' They'd be like, '3, 2, 1, go!' and just yank it down. You'd be like, 'Oh, no!'"

The actress said she's "not really naked" in the photos. "Just sort of."

"That's me Photoshopped and drunk," she said. "That's what I look like."

In all honesty, it's a good look. She's not The Sexiest Woman Alive by accident.
