The Mother of Dragons can’t even handle meeting Beyoncé.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night, Emilia Clarke talked about briefly meeting the pop star at an Academy Awards afterparty. Beyoncé 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?
