SPOILER ALERT: Stop if you haven’t seen the latest Game of Thrones episode.
Earlier in May, Emilia Clarke got naked for a fiery scene in Game of Thrones (GoT). The actress caused much hype after she confirmed that she hadn’t used a body double for the scene.
In April Clarke spoke on America’s Late Late Show about how she wanted to see more male nude scenes for equality reasons.
“I feel like there’s a bit of inequality between the amount of nudity that happens with women…and that happens with the other guys,” she told James Corden.
In the most recent episode of GoT, a penis is well and truly exposed to the audience. A close up of testicles and the whole kit was shown on the latest episode. It took the meaning of ‘male nude scene’ to a whole new level.
Clarke has responded in her ever-classy way applauding the show. In an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert yesterday, Clarke gave a cheeky response to the confronting nude scene.
Colbert said, “It was like full on right, like undercarriage and everything?”
To which Clarke replied, “I think they heard me…Junk equality.”
Clarke coined a new term for the equality of male and female nude scenes during her late night show interview. “Junk equality” is what the actress is campaigning for.
Clarke spoke about her latest nude scene, where she emerges through fire without clothes on. The actress explained to Colbert that she wanted to do something empowering.
“I just wanted to come out and do an empowered scene, which wasn’t sexual. It was naked, but it was strong,” she said. “You know I did it, so why can’t the boys do it?”
Fans have reacted to the latest full on “junk equality” nude scene, with the ongoing hashtag #FreeTheP.
