The Mother of Dragons can’t even handle meeting BeyoncĂ©.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night, Emilia Clarke talked about briefly meeting the pop star at an Academy Awards afterparty. BeyoncĂ© is, unsurprisingly, a Game of Thrones fan. Stars, they’re just like us!


“She voluntarily came up to me, open-faced like, ‘I wanna talk to this girl,’” Clarke says. “And I just messed it up. She was clearly a fan and I ruined it.”

Okay, humble brag, but go on.

“I think I started crying,” she says, making the dorkiest noise possible. “Exactly that noise came out of my mouth. And she was like, ‘Hey this is uncomfortable now. I thought you’d be cool, you’re not cool, bye.’ And I was like, ‘No, can I get you a drink?’”


Clarke says she wants another shot when she can control herself. Can you really blame her for messing it up the first time?
