Fans are used to seeing her on Game of Thrones and in Broadway’s much maligned Breakfast At Tiffany’s with a very prettily made-up face. Makeup, no makeup, whatever — she’s a beautiful girl. I love this makeup free movement, because this photoshop shit is getting f-cking ridiculous, to the point where the celebrities don’t even look like themselves. It’s unnecessary. I would love to see these women on the covers of magazines with little or no makeup, and not as a novelty issue.
Then again I can see how some people would roll their eyes and think, good for you, do you want a medal for showing the world what you look like as a normal person? I’m for it though.
For comparison, here’s what Ms. Clarke looks like with makeup:

Breakfast At Tiffany’s, the Truman Capote novella, was famously adapted to film starring Audrey Hepburn and recently for Broadway, starring Emilia Clarke. Unfortunately, the reviews suggest they should have stopped at the movie. Let’s take a look.
Emilia Clarke is obviously talented, but she is so miscast as Holly Golightly that it’s kind of shocking.
There’s no palpable connection between [lead characters] Fred and Holly…[Clarke] has the air of an impostor, which is good (and her best quality in this role)…But this is not a nuanced performance that reveals personal dislocation or pain, or some emptiness inside, or any kind of journey.
Clarke doesn’t demonstrate the maturity to convey Holly’s unique dichotomy of breezy insouciance and jaded calculation…[her] delivery mostly comes off as effortful over-enunciation…Far more than the casting or writing, however, the insurmountable problem is Mathias’ cloddish direction. One scene bumps into the next with painfully awkward transitions…
Emilia Clarke…can’t pull it off. She’s likable, she sings her one song (not “Moon River”) well, and she looks lovely in Colleen Atwood’s costumes. But when a girl named Golightly has to work at effervescence, something’s wrong—and it’s wrong throughout the production…Breakfast at Tiffany’s gets dreary pretty fast.
Richard Greenberg’s new stage adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a meandering misfire lacking the charm and oomph of either Capote’s 1958 novella or the 1961 movie…[Clark] she comes off as shrill rather than insouciant…Greenberg’s entire first act is a slog, bogged down with dreary exposition and the introduction of far too many quirky but uninteresting characters.
All of the reviews agree on one thing: the cat is fantastic. Yeah, that’s a real-life motherf-cking cat, and it steals the whole motherf-cking show.

Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones is a total babe – don’t act like you haven’t ogled the Khaleesi once or twice – so it’s no surprised that people are pretty stoked to see her strip down on stage as part of her role as Holly Golightly in the Broadway production of Breakfast At Tiffany’s. They’re so stoked, in fact, that they’re breaking rules and taking photos of the actress in the nude. Uh oh.
One scene in particular has been causing major headaches for the Cort Theatre, which began previewing the show this week. In it, Clarke as Golightly gets undressed and slips into a bubble bath with co-star Cory Michael Smith who plays Fred.
“She undresses him and he gets in the tub,” a knowledgeable source told the New York Post. “She then goes offstage and comes back in a towel. She takes it off and gets in with him. So you don’t see everything. There are bubbles strategically placed.”
Apparently the partial nudity was enough to whip the peanut gallery into a frenzy, with many audience members in balcony seats pulling out their phones to snap photos in direct defiance of the theater’s strict “no photos” policy.
As a result of the flash mob, the theater has been forced to increase security ahead of the show’s opening night on March 20th.
Hilarious. We certainly didn’t hear shit like this when Daniel Radcliffe went full frontal on stage in Equus, that’s for sure. Everyone needs to calm down and go take a cold shower.
