5 Celebs Who Claim to Be Bigger ‘GoT' Fans Than You
Celebs may spend a large portion of their week honing their craft, looking for their next juicy role or perfecting their selfie game, but really they’re just biding the time until the next Game of Thrones episode drops like the rest of us. Come Sunday they too suffer from giddy anticipation and anxiety at the sound of the GoT string vibrato intro. From Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s GoT music video to Channing Tatum’s fangirl meltdown over the epic romance of Khaleesi and Khal Drogo that once was, here are five celebrities who claim to be the biggest Game of Thrones fans.
The Pitch Perfect star can’t get enough of the Westeros dramz, so HBO sent her a personalized music box that plays GoT’s powerfully epic theme music when opened. We’d totally bend the knee to House Kendrick.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
According to Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Jay honored Bey’s GoT obsession by gifting her with one of the rarest and most expensive props from the show: Khaleesi’s dragon egg. “They are really, really, really expensive and they are really f***ing heavy and serious works of art," Clarke revealed. A present fit for the Mother of Dragons Blue Ivy.
If you follow SNL’s Leslie Jones on social media, then you’re probably very familiar with her passion for Game of Thrones. Jones regularly live-tweets the show, shares her hilarious theories and even watched the show with Seth Meyers and Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) once.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
From dragon egg viewing party snacks to dressing up as Khal Drogo and Khaleesi, Bell and Shepard are the ultimate Thronies. The couple showed their enthusiasm for GoT’s season seven premiere by expertly crafting a music video that features them playing instruments in time to the show’s intro, morphing into various characters and shipping Dany and Jon Snow (Kit Harington). Bless their hearts.
Jenna Dewan Tatum and Channing Tatum
Clarke also revealed the Magic Mike star approached her at a 2015 Golden Globes after-party and gushed about his and his wife’s love for the show. “And they said, ‘We call each other ‘moon of my life’ and ‘my sun and stars’ and all that,’” Clarke shared. You stay perfect, Tatums.
