Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke upset by online comments

Emilia ClarkeEmilia Clarke won’t Google herself because of online comments that called her ”fat.”

The 28-year-old actress admits she was put off from searching for her own name on the Internet after reading articles about her nude scenes on Game of Thrones during the first series of the fantasy drama.

She recalled: ”There were a number of very public discussions about the size of my derriere. One article said it was refreshing to have such a ‘healthy-sized’ bottom on television. You hear that and immediately hear, ‘I’m fat.’

”So I just wanted to save myself from any future eating disorders that may emerge. And the comments were the worst! Like, ‘I’m gonna tap that big fat ass.”’

However, Emilia recently joined Instagram but has been horrified by the graphic comments left on her pictures.

She told GQ magazine: ”You can’t help but see the comments. One was just a list of all the sexual acts he wanted to do to me. In text speak.”

The actress – who played Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys – is currently on crutches and though she has invented a number of reasons why, such as an injury from jumping out of a helicopter or having ”really rowdy sex,” she admits it was much less exciting.

She explained: ”I run, and it’s a stress fracture. I was just not taking care of myself. I’ve got brittle-bone c**p in my family, and I don’t eat dairy, so I don’t have enough calcium.”

    Sorry to hear that this happened to her. It takes great courage to do a nude scene. She felt confident enough to do it herself when many other actors use doubles. Sometimes “body part” doubles are used. She did it herself which I applaud. She’s a brave person. To hear that she’s being put down because she’s “fat” just makes me cringe. My heart goes out to her. She is not fat, she’s healthy. Whoever called her fat…probably a jealous female. Whoever tweeted that sexually abusive stuff…. probably never had a girlfriend in his life. It’s too bad that social media can be such a cess-pool of hatred, usually for no good reason. Kudos to her for speaking out about it. I hope she wins an Oscar some day, so all those haters can kiss her “fat” behind.
