‘Game Of Thrones’ may have ended for the season, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t still get your fix! Lena Headey appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on June 16 to do her best Cersei Lannister impression, doing what Cersei Lannister does best — drinking wine out of a fancy goblet. Check it out!
Lena Headey, AKA Cersei Lannister, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on June 16 to give the people what they want — more Game Of Thrones. Cersei Lannister may not be everyone’s favorite character, but there’s no denying that she’s spectacularly good at two things: drinking wine out of goblets, and making cutting remarks. Watch Cersei and Jimmy Kimmel have an insult-off!
Lena Headey On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’: Insults Jimmy Kimmel As Cersei Lannister
As soon as the goblets and wine appeared and the lights went out, Lena was in her element, trading insults back and forth with Jimmy, who, sadly, is simply not up to the the task in the face of the greatest insulter known to man.
Remember that time Cersei told Margaery that if she ever called her “sister” again, she’d have her strangled in her sleep? And when Loras Tyrell said, “My father once told me…” and Cersei cut in to snap at him, “Nobody cares what your father once told you?” Legend.
Jimmy Kimmel: ‘Doing Sex With Your Brother Must Be So Exhausting’
While the best insults clearly belong to Lena-as-Cersei, Jimmy does get one particularly good barb in: “Thank you for coming today; I know you have a busy schedule. Doing sex with your brother must be so exhausting.”
Lena, eyebrow arched, and lips pursed, told Jimmy, “You have such a way with words; I wonder if you’ll be as clever when you have your tongue ripped from your throat.” Be sure to watch the video for the rest of their excellent one-liners!
So, HollywoodLifers, did you like Lena’s appearance on Kimmel? Did it soothe your GoT-lacking heart? Let us know!
