It seems a far-fetched idea but “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke has confessed that her ideal man is someone who has a “dad bod” rather than six-pack abs.
The actress who portrays Daenerys Targaryen on the medieval fantasy show told People Magazine that she prefers smart and funny men “whose brain is as big as their funny bone” than those with chiseled physique.
“I want someone who is super smart, can make me laugh, has like a dad bod,” she said. “I don’t need no six-pack.”
She also discussed sharing the screen with some of her “dreamy” fictional love interests on her film and television roles like Michiel Huisman (Daario Naharis ) and Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo). She called them “too perfect.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, the “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” Broadway star claims she has no suitor in real life. However, she would take an exception if “Leonardo DiCaprio decides to stop dating supermodels.”
Clarke previously dated “Terminator Genisys” co-star Jai Courtney and “Million Ways To Die In The West” comedian Seth MacFarlane.
In a British radio guesting on Nick Grimshaw’s BBC Radio 1 show, Clarke was able to meet ultimate “Game of Thrones” fan Nick Jonas. The latter also dropped by for a promo.
The “Jealous” singer admitted that browsing Clarke’s Instagram account is one of his favorite things to do. It was his second time to meet Clarke, and they talked about a cocktail-tinged chat during an Oscar party. During that time, he told her in an embarrassing manner that he is a fan of her Instagram.
Clarke, however, found it “flattering,” telling Jonas that she is “proud” of her Instagram feed.
Emilia Clarke will next be seen with “Catching Fire” star Sam Claflin in the romantic tearjerker “Me Before You.” The film will be seen in theaters starting June 3.
