Emilia Clarke is defended by fans over a fresh-faced snap
Emilia Clarke’s fans have rushed to her defense after she was hit with online abuse via a fresh Instagram snap.
The Game Of Thrones star, 36, shared the glowing photo to show off her new mug sent by her mum with the tagline: “You’re doing f*****g great.”
She captioned the post: ‘Mommy got me a mug. I felt it was important to share this new found wisdom.
“Use it and reap the benefits ❤️ #itstimetostartbackingyoselfpeople #mumsreallydoknowbest #mycoldjustgotitsmedicine.”
Unfortunately, Emilia’s face sparked a wave of mean troll comments about her appearance, but they were soon vastly outnumbered by users who came to her rescue.

One user incorrectly commented, “Mother of dragons, what happened to you,” while another added, “What’s happening to those hairs, they’re worse than mine right now.”
Emilia’s fans then rushed to her defense, with one gushing, “This is by far the most beautiful woman in Hollywood,” while a second added, “You always put the biggest smile on my face!”
A third added: “Thank you for laughing so much Emilia, you make the world more beautiful.”
“Beautiful – real smile lines on an IG photo,” added a fourth user.
Emilia previously shared her thoughts on getting older during an interview with ELLE in 2021, and admitted that a facialist told her she needed fillers when she was only 28.
She said, “You have an idea of aging, and then you have an idea of what aging makes you look like.
“At 34, I’m wiser, more intelligent, I’ve had more experience, I’ve done all these things and I’m proud of that. That is only possible because you are as old as you are. Time is the only thing you can do those things with.
“So if my face reflects the time I’ve spent on this earth, I’m ready.”

It comes after Emilia revealed that she would cry before the sex scenes with Jason Momoa on Game of Thrones, as she didn’t know about the nudity before accepting the role.
The star portrayed Daenerys Targaryen in the hit fantasy series and admitted she was “terrified” by the sex scenes because she “didn’t know what to do.”
Emilia, who was just 23 at the time, was “fresh out of drama school” and had “never been on a film set” and had to undress in front of “all those people.”
Speak on the Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard podcast in 2019, Emilia said, “I took the job and then they sent me the scripts and I read them, and I was like, ‘Oh, there’s the catch!’
“But I was fresh out of drama school and I approached it like a job: if it’s in the script, it’s obviously needed.
“I’ve never been on a movie set like this before and I’m completely naked on a movie set with all these people right now, and I don’t know what to do, and I don’t know what’s expected of me, and I don’t know what you want, and I don’t know what I want.
“Regardless of whether there’s nudity or not, I would have thought that first season that I’m not worthy of demanding anything. I’m not worth needing anything at all.’
However, she appreciated Jason, 43, who plays Khal Drogo, for making filming as easy as possible because she felt the “impostor syndrome.”
