I always manage to forget that Jude Law is actually a terrific actor. “The Talented Mr. Ripley”? “I Heart Huckabees”? “Closer”? So good! Jude’s latest role is as the titular “Dom Hemingway,” a gangster free after 12 years in prison, trawling the streets of London to collect what he’s rightfully owed. Richard E. Grant, Demian Bichir, and “Game of Thrones” beauty (and Frisky favorite) Emilia Clarke also star in what looks to be a violent, vulgar, and shockingly hilarious new film. “Dom Hemingway” premiered in London last night, but it won’t hit American theaters until next April. In the meantime, let’s hope this cheeky (literally) trailer can hold us over. Not safe for work, unless your place of work, like mine, is firmly pro-Jude Law’s naked bum. [via Celebitchy]
We’ve seen her with blonde hair. We’ve seen her with brown hair. And now, we’ve got a glimpse of Emilia “Khaleesi” Clarke without makeup. Life is not fair. [Reddit]
I am nursing a major girl crush on Emilia Clarke, and not just because I saw her taut bare ass on stage in Breakfast at Tiffany’s on Broadway. No, like many, I’ve been obsessed with Emilia since the first episode of “Game of Thrones” on HBO, in which she plays Daenerys ”Khaleesi” Targaryen. Naturally, I love her character’s costumes, but there isn’t much opportunity to wear stitched leather and burlap crop tops in the real world. Thankfully, Emilia’s own clothes are just as covet worthy and more suiting to my lifestyle. Take the trench coat, skinny jeans and red pumps she wore last night — perfect for a casual spring work day. Find out how to get it after the jump! Keep reading »
Do blondes really have more fun? In the case of Daenarys “Khaleesi” Targaryen, “Game of Thrones”‘ Mother of Dragons, it’s tough to say. What we do know, though, is that Emilia Clarke, who plays Khaleesi, is currently appearing on Broadway as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which necessitated that she wear her hair in its natural dark brown glory. Thankfully, the stark white Khaleesi look is actually a wig, so Clarke’s hair is relatively undamaged. Not so for many of the other celebs on this list, who’ve transformed themselves from brunette to bottled white blondes with the help of a healthy heaping of bleach. Take a look, and tell us whether you like the white blonde look, or prefer their darker tresses.
Last night, The Frisky staff took a little field trip to Times Square to see the new Broadway play, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” which is, of course, based on the Truman Capote novela of the same name. (There’s also a little movie version starring Audrey Hepburn that you’ve probably heard of, but the play stuck closer to the original.) Starring the drop-dead gorgeous Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryan on “Game of Thrones”) as Holly Golightly and Cory Michael Smith as Fred, the play, like the novella, is based during the ’40s in the midst of World War II, and tells the story of the infectious and charming, but ultimately untethered Holly and the wide-eyed neighbor who gets wrapped up in her mysterious life. Clarke and Smith are both fantastic in their roles, with Clarke — who also sings a bit for the role — especially putting her own spin on the iconic character. Also! The costumes by the legendary Colleen Atwood are stunning, Holly’s cat “Cat” is playing by a real, live adorable feline, and there’s a full-on nude bathtub scene between Holly and Fred that was worth the wait. All in all, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” was an engaging and moving staging of a beloved classic. And the best part is? One lucky reader will win two tickets to see the play on Broadway, as well as dinner at Glass House Tavern in NYC. Find out more about the prize and how to enter after the jump! Keep reading »
Earlier this month, Lizzy, a seven-year-old corgi, got fired from a West End production of “The Audience” starring Helen Mirren after she failed to make her mark in “16 consecutive preview performance nights.” She was replaced by a younger rival named Coco. (The corgi, I mean, not Helen Mirren.)
This week, on the other side of the pond, another four-legged Broadway star got the axe. Keep reading »
Confession: I’ve never seen “Game of Thrones.” I know, I know; I shouldn’t be allowed to work for the Internet. I’m just a little bit gore-sensitive, like this one time I watched this movie “Valhalla Rising” and found it viscerally disturbing to the point of tears, and I’m worried that “GoT” is going to be like that for me, too. I should at least give it a chance, right? Anyway, even though I’ve never seen her in the show as Daenerys, I’m kind of obsessed with Emilia Clarke. She has the coolest eyebrows! And, duh, she looked amazing in this Victoria Beckham dress at the Season 3 premiere yesterday. I want her to be everywhere… and she probably will be. I just hope she isn’t actually dating Seth MacFarlane. She could do so, so much better.
Not that I’m ready for it to end anytime soon but yes, I am anxious to know how George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series ends. These characters have been through a lot and I’m rooting for more than one to “win” the Game of Thrones. But who will it be? Actress Emilia Clarke wants to know too.
Thanks to Charles Dance, who plays Tywin Lannister on the series, we know ”Game of Thrones” will be getting a fourth season. We sort of assumed as much anyway since HBO split the third book in half for the upcoming third season but it was a relief nonetheless. It means we’re that much closer to seeing Martin’s entire book series, which isn’t even finished, translated on screen. But Clarke would appreciate it if Martin would spill everything to her about Daenerys Targaryan. She spoke with Metro News:
“I’ve said to George ‘come on, tell me who wins, please!’ And he thinks I’m joking and I say, ‘no, no, I’m deadly serious!’ His lips are sealed. And I’m sure that David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] know but they don’t tell anyone –I’ve got them drunk and they still wouldn’t tell me.
I’ve been pleading with them, ‘tell me who wins!’ And they won’t say a word. They’re under lock and key. ! But I care passionately about what happens to Dany. How could I not?” Read more…
Yesterday, a guy friend of mine IM’d me with something weighing on his mind. “Can we talk about how Daenerys Targaryen is dating Stewie?! You need to do a slideshow about guys who are dating women way out of their league.” He was of course referring to the recent coupling of Emilia Clarke, the actress who plays Daenerys on “Game Of Thrones,” and Seth MacFarlane, the creator of “Family Guy.” The thing is, while I acknowledge that Emilia is agoddess unparalleled, I couldn’t get all that worked up about her dating a guy who, quite factually, is less attractive than she is (my friend said that some of Seth’s expressions recall Sloth from “Goonies,” if you wanted a sense of just how unattractive he finds MacFarlane).
“Dude,” I wrote back. “I actually think he’s kind of hot. I like a guy who can do many, many voices.” My friend then said that his sister found him hot as well, but he just didn’t get it. I tried to explain: “A sense of humor goes a long way. Why do you think there’s such a long history of kind of homely to downright ugly comedians dating smokin’ hot women?”
Which is not to say I always get it myself. While I see the appeal of Seth MacFarlane (though he is no Khal Drogo), some of these comedian/hottie pairings have left me scratching my head because the funny didn’t out weigh the fugly. Sorry, Andy Dick…
