Kingslayer looks so much better with the shorter hair this season, don’t you find?
And don’t you also find that Kingslayer is knocking you out with those Danish thighs?
“Game of Thrones” actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau covers the May 2014 issue of Details Magazine photographed by Mark Seliger.
It takes a special man to sit down in white jeans and not have his thighs look like two loaves of white bread.
On his early success in Denmark: “It made me kind of an asshole. My first job out of drama school was a big hit, so I thought that was the way it worked. You make a movie and it becomes a big hit. Every time. But, of course, it didn’t happen that way. [...] There’s an expression in Denmark, ‘Don’t fly any higher than your ears will carry you.’ It means don’t get cocky. Keep your feet solidly planted on the ground. Don’t think you’re special. Don’t think you’re better than anyone else. It’s a fundamentally different approach than you have in America.”
On the rumors that he cheated with Cameron Diaz: “My wife started getting letters from women all over. ‘You should know what your husband is cheating on you with Cameron Diaz. Cameron Diaz is not to be trusted.’ My wife just laughed, but still…”
On “Game of Thrones” fans: “Yeah, it’s crazy. There are some very intense fans. We did a premiere last year in Seattle, and I got a taste of it. It was a little claustrophobic. All these people wanting to take a picture with me. One guy was like, ‘Do you mind if I take a picture of your shoe? I have a thing with shoes…'”
Gotta love an actor who admits he was an asshole. More of them should do it. All of them should do it, really. He seems to have a hilariously anxious relationship with super-fandom. Once they start cosplaying you at Comic-Con, it must get a little surreal. If he hasn’t gotten used to it by now, he’s probably never going to. Then again, he has the rest of his life to work on it, because we guarantee people will still be dressing up as Jaime Lannister for Comic-Con (and other various opportunities for nerd drag shows) thirty years from now. Ask Adam West or Mark Hamill.
And then there’s that.
That should get you over the hump of your day.
