‘Game of Thrones’ star Lena Headey slays internet troll who shamed her no-makeup look – USA TODAY


‘Game of Thrones’ star Lena Headey joined the growing number of women accusing disgraced film executive Harvey Weinstein of inappropriate behavior of a sexual nature.

Don’t mess with Cersei Lannister, or the woman who plays her. 

“Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey fired back at a social media user who bluntly replied to a fresh-faced video of the actress saying, “Don’t record yourself without makeup again please.”

Headey took to Instagram Tuesday to post a screenshot of the makeup shaming comment and unleashed her wrath, because in the words of Cersei, “A good king knows when to save his strength and when to destroy his enemies.”

“I shall continue to not wear make up,” Headey captioned the picture, adding “go (expletive) your self.”

Fellow “GoT” actress Emilia Clarke (who plays Daenerys Targaryen) applauded her take-down, writing “PREACH BEAUTIFUL WOMAN.” Meanwhile, Gwendoline Christie (the actress behind warrior Brienne of Tarth) sent along a series of pink hearts. 

The makeup-shaming comment appears to have been left on Headey’s post from Monday, where the actress promoted her new movie “Fighting With My Family.”
