There may be little denying that Emilia Clarke is one of the most captivating and sexy celebrities in Hollywood. At the very least she’s one of the most recognizable, after all, you may have heard something about the television series Game of Thrones.
But even if you’ve seen her for hundreds of hours, you’ll perhaps never enjoy her more than in the 5 minutes it’ll take you to fall in love with her even more.
Below we have 15 photos that’ll help convince anyone that Emilia Clarke is well-deserving of all the attention she receives. Whether it’s winning you over with her fantastic personality like showing off her dog, her tattoo or inability to cook; or stripping down for several magazines, there’s something in here for every Clarke fan to appreciate.
You may have seen her hanging out around some heat with her dragons on Game of Thrones, but after this list, you’ll think Clarke is hotter than ever before.
15. She Loves Her Dog
Emilia Clarke has many qualities that make you fall in love with her, but if you want to find a way to find a way to enter into her life; how about making sure you also love animals? Emilia Clarke has taken to her Instagram on various occasions to show off her love of animals, but perhaps none more prominently than the fluffy white ball of cuteness that we have featured for you above.
Bonus points for getting a rare look at Emilia Clarke not only with incredibly short hair but also rocking some glasses!
14. Her Outfit For Hollywood Reporter
Emilia Clarke made a name for herself with her comfortability in baring it all, but when posing for The Hollywood Reporter she helps prove that she looks gorgeous even when wearing a nice dress.
Though something tells us that dress probably wouldn’t hold up too well in Westeros.
Clarke posed for the magazine back in May 2015, during which they also interviewed her about the success of the show
“Never in a million years did I think Game of Thrones was going to take off like it did. It’s taken me five years to catch up with it. I’m still not sure I’m there.”
13. She Turned Down 50 Shades Of Grey
Now don’t get us wrong, we can see the benefit of seeing Emilia Clarke in the leading role of the 50 Shades of Grey movie. But Emilia Clarke is more than just a beautiful woman, she’s incredibly intelligent and she used her brains not her body when turning away the lead role in the series.
“I really wanted to work with [Fifty Shades director] Sam Taylor-Johnson because she’s f–king amazing. But there is a huge amount of nudity in the film. I’ll never say, ‘I’m never doing nudity,’ because I’ve already done it, but I thought I might get stuck in a pigeonhole that I would have struggled to get out of.” said Clarke in an interview.
Never say never is right, as she recently bares it all in her movie Voice from the Stone.
Because there is no photo of her from the movie, you’ll have to settle for this beautiful one from Esquire’s sexiest woman of the year photo shoot. While she may turn away the grey, it’s clear she looks amazing in black and white.
12. She Loves ‘Friends’ And Matt LeBlanc
This list has no shortage of photos in which Emilia Clarke shows that she is plenty comfortable letting the world take a look at her without clothes. But as a huge Friends fan, there’s no way I was going to be able to put this list together and not include this fantastic photo of Emilia Clarke and Matt LeBlanc which she shared to her Instagram back in May 2016 along with the caption
“How YOU doin??! Downright GIDDY now!! Bucket list accomplishment already underway with this gem (both in Joey and Matt form) 😍
(@mebeforeyouofficial tour you made a 90’s girl oh so happy.”
The two both attended The Graham Norton Show, during which Clarke admitted to having a massive crush on him and asked Joey to use his infamous “How you doin'” line on her which he was more than happy to!
11. She’s Going To Be In Han Solo
You can’t blame Disney for realizing that the love for Star Wars isn’t going away anytime soon and one of the biggest ways they are hoping to capitalize yet again is with Han Solo: A Star Wars Story which releases in 2018.
Don’t expect Clarke to let anything slip in interviews though, especially given her experience on Game of Thrones
“I genuinely can’t tell you anything other than Alden is magnificent, and it’s a delight to do something on that level with really cool actors and nice people. But it’s even scarier talking about that than Game of Thrones,” said Clarke.
10. Her Outfit For Australian Vogue 2016
You may love to take a trip down under if it meant checking out the Australian version of Vogue which Emilia Clarke graced back in May 2016. While she is plopped down on the floor in the above photo, we’re sure she would have no shortage of men that would be willing to come and help her up!
While Clarke was clear baring her body for the magazine, she also bared part of her personality; including opening up about her fears when she first started on Game of Thrones,
“The first couple of years I was plagued by a kind of: ‘Oh my god, this is my first role. Don’t f-ck it up. Do good, just do good,” but thankfully went on to say,
9. She’s Great With Her Fans
Emilia Clarke has opened up in the past about how when the show as first starting out that she was recognized a lot less because she didn’t wear her iconic wig out in public, but that definitely isn’t the case anymore as the world can’t get enough of Clarke and the series.
Thankfully though Clarke is outstanding with fans, an attitude she shared in a past interview,
“It’s really gratifying to know you have a lot of fans who truly appreciate the show and the work you do. I’m very lucky.”
8. Her Outfit For British Vogue 2015
Below we’re going to make sure we include a photo from the incredibly steamy photo shoot that Emilia Clarke did for the Australian version of Vogue back in 2016. But to help get you braced for that, we also had to make sure we include this beautiful photo of Clarke from when she posed for the British version of the magazine back in 2015.
During an interview with the magazine, Clarke also gave some insight on her relationship with her Dad following her big break,
“When I first read the scripts, I was on holiday with my family. I told my dad, you’re not going to be able to watch the first five episodes.”
7. Her Stance On Baring It All On Game Of Thrones
There are plenty of reasons to respect Emilia Clarke and while you’ve learned more about her thoughts on nudity in 50 Shades of Grey, you’ll be glad to hear that she felt more than comfortable stripping it off for Game of Thrones.
“I was so thrilled with it. It’s not a sexy scene, she’s not naked for no reason, it’s not gratuitous. She’s naked because she’s just destroyed her enemies in this almighty blaze after they underestimated her. She played her trump card – how could I say no?,” said Clarke when talking about her infamous season 1 scene.
6. She Looks Beautiful Without Makeup
Emilia Clarke is definitely going to turn some heads whenever she steps out on the red carpet or in front of the cameras for Game of Thrones, but back in 2013, she made sure to show the world that she looked gorgeous without makeup on as well posting the above photo to her Facebook.
Don’t expect Clarke to read your comments about her, positive or negative though, as she admitted shortly after getting her start on Game of Thrones that she refuses to read about herself online after she was the victim of fat-shaming.
5. She Has A Great Sense Of Humor
When it comes to qualities that you may love to have in your partner, them being a talented cook may be quite high up on your list. But as evident from the above photo, Clarke may have some room for improvement in the kitchen!
Clarke humorously shared the post on Christmas Eve back in 2015 along with the caption “So I should cancel the recipe book launch?!”
Though to be fair, Clarke becoming a little bit too familiar with fire and burning something that she tries to make seems pretty on-par for Khaleesi! Thankfully we’re sure Clarke had no shortage of helpers (or the money to buy said helpers) nearby to help rectify her ruined food.
4. She Was Esquire’s Sexiest Woman In 2015
If you’re looking for a reason for all guys to get behind Emilia Clarke, it definitely does not hurt that back in 2015 Esquire literally named her the sexiest woman alive. The same magazine has given some love to Scarlett Johansson on several occasions and Penelope Cruz, so you know they know what they’re talking about!
And just in case you have any doubt that Clarke should have been the winner, we did you a favor and included one of the photos that she took with Esquire to help celebrate her “win”.
3. She Has A Tattoo
If you’re a guy out there who loves a girl with some ink, and we’re sure there are plenty of you out there, Emilia Clarke may take on an even higher level of hotness when you consider the fact that she has a tattoo.
Clarke received a bumblebee on her finger, which was similar to the bumblebee tattoo that her character in Me Before You has.
“Just having a routine doctors appointment care of the master @dr_woo_ssc. #mebeforeyou what was already stained on my heart is now stained on my skin,” said Clarke when sharing the post on Instagram.
In the past, Sophie Turner has also opened up about how the cast that makes it to the end of the series may also all get matching tattoos, but there are still plenty of episodes for these characters to survive and we all know that Dany making it to the end is no guarantee.
2. She Hangs With Dwayne Johnson And Kevin Hart
Emilia Clarke may not have appeared in the movie Central Intelligence, but that doesn’t mean that she wasn’t more than happy to go and attend an event around the movie that also included the two stars, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart.
But to be fair, could you honestly ever seeing yourself turn away an opportunity to hang out with those two hilarious men? It’s clear that Clarke knew photos would be plenty as she looked radiant and was more than happy to share the above photo to her Instagram along with the caption,
“The last time I was this up close to a man with arms the size of my waist was one Khal Drogo, hmm… I smell a new superhero movie.”
1. Her Outfit For Glamour April 2016
When Emilia Clarke decided to pose for Glamour magazine back in April 2016, it came with the caption “Summer Is On” blasted on the cover. We’re sure you wouldn’t be the only one who would be ecstatic if Clarke decides to spend part of her summer stripping down for various photo shoots or fun days out in the public eye.
When interviewing with Glamour, Clarke opened up more about how much power she draws in her own life from playing Daenerys,
“As a woman — no, as a young adult, you spend your twenties figuring out who you are and what you want to do; it’s a scary time. There are days when I feel like the less strong version of myself . . . I know I’m gonna put the f*cking wig on and go out there and let her re-fulfill me.”
We’re sure there are plenty of people who draw inspiration from Clarke!
