Emilia Clarke: Being A Woman in Hollywood Like 'Dealing With Racism'

Emilia Clarke says being a woman in the male-dominated Hollywood is almost like being a different skin color.

"I feel so naive for saying it, but it’s like dealing with racism," the 'Game of Thrones' star told Rolling Stone.

"You’re aware of it, and you’re aware of it, but one day, you go, 'Oh, my God, it's everywhere!' Like you suddenly wake up to it and you go, 'Wait a f***ing second, are you treating me different because I've got a pair of tits? Is that actually happening?'"

"It took me a really long time to see that I do get treated differently. But I look around, and that's my daily life."

"Yes, I've got mascara on, and I also have a high IQ, so those two things can be one and the same," Emilia continued.

Clarke muses about starting a production company that that's "full of nice, funny women."

She'd say: "Yeah, I've got a pair of tits, and aren't they lovely? Aren't they great? You do too! They're great, you're in the club!"

However, Emilia Clarke added she's been "lucky" for her 'Game of Thrones' role.

"Women have been great rulers. And then for that to be a character that I'm known to play? That's so f***ing lucky. Anyone who seems to think that it's not needed, only look at the political environment we're all living in to be like, 'Oh, no, it's needed. It is needed.'"
