Emilia Clarke says male stars usually avoid doing films with female leads



Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones

Without a doubt, one of the most well-known actors from Game of Thrones is Emilia Clarke. The actress, 37, shot to fame in the HBO epic with her portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen. She was recently in the news for her appearance in the Secret Invasion series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). She does believe, though, that men tend to shy away from roles in movies with female leads.

Emilia Clarke says male stars shy away from female-led films

Clarke, who was recently seen in the sci-fi flick Pod Generation, told Harper’s Bazaar, “If you are a female lead in a film – and I’m trying not to take it personally – it is nearly impossible to find a guy to act opposite you. Men don’t want to do it. I’m just calling this shit out.”

“I take responsibility for it myself. I’m a big girl. But I don’t need to be your buddy. I don’t need your number. We don’t need to like each other on Instagram. We just need to turn up at work and be what we need to be to make each other better. Chiwetel did and was just an absolute joy. That’s rare.”


Actors hate themselves

Clarke went on to reveal that most actors hate themselves. She said, “I’m such a people-pleaser. It’s infuriating. Every actor wants everyone else to like us. We hate ourselves.”

“The problem is not with technology itself. It’s our relationship with technology that we need to regulate. That’s what we need a cognisant understanding of, because everything in our capitalist, consumer-led society is set up for ease.
