This Is the ‘Stupid’ Thing Nick Jonas Did Upon Meeting Emilia Clarke
Even celebrities get starstruck in the presence of a khaleesi.
Though Nick Jonas is normally calm and composed, the “Chainsaw” singer admitted to doing something incredibly “stupid” when he first met Emilia Clarke at an industry bash. Crashing the Game of Thrones actress’ interview with BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast Show on Thursday (June, 2, 2016), Jonas recalled the cringe-worthy meeting that left him red-faced and feeling totally embarrassed.
“I’ve actually already met Emilia at the Oscars after-party. But it wasn’t like, ‘I’m a fan of the show.’ Actually, that was a part of it, but I was like, ‘I’m also a fan of your Instagram.’ Which I don’t know if it is a weird thing to say,” the 23-year-old told host Nick Grimshaw.
“She posts great stuff — like insight into the show, behind-the-scenes pictures and stuff,” he continued. “I immediately walked away and was like, ‘That sounded stupid.’ That was maybe after one or two cocktails that I said that. It was highly embarrassing.”
“I found it very flattering,” Clarke, 29, retorted. “I’m proud of my Instagram.”
She adds, “You can ride a dragon, honey!”
Well, it’s not that Jonas hasn’t done onscreen nudity already. He’ll be right at home, no?
