Lena Headey's Nurse Quoted 'Game Of Thrones' At The Most Awkward Moment
Being a celebrity can be pretty tough. Of course, you also get to, you know, be rich and beloved and have all your dreams come true, so let's put that in the "pro" category.
But, there are also some cons. One being, if you're famous enough, wherever you go people will recognize you, and if you're Sacha Baron Cohen, for example, you have to have people yell, "MY WIFE!" at you for the rest of your life.
Lena Headey, the acting powerhouse who plays Cersei on "Game of Thrones" had one such encounter with an avid "GoT" fan while in the most awkward of circumstances.
What sort of circumstances, you ask? Well, as she explained last night on "The Late Late Show with James Cordon," she had just finished giving birth to her child and was busy trying, with difficulty, to squeeze milk out of her breasts for the newborn.
The nurse offered to help, and -- because what better time is there to display your fandom than when you're busy squeezing liquid, newborn baby food out of a person's boob? -- she leaned in and whispered,
Now, if you don't get that reference, let's just say that there is a scene in "GoT" where Cersei is forced to walk naked through a crowd while someone chants "shame, shame, shame." Yeah, that's the moment the nurse decided to quote moments after Lena Headey gave birth and was struggling to get milk out of her body.
"GoT" fans don't mess around.
