Amanda Peet maybe shouldn't be allowed to play with matches.

The actress doesn't have great judgement.

Luckily, Amanda Peet doesn't get to call the shots for her hubby, Game of Thrones creator David Benioff.

Amanda Peet admitted on Monday night's Conan that she didn't like the idea when he ran it by her.

I wouldn't have ever admitted that out loud, but whatever.

Amanda Peet said, "I thought it was a terrible idea."

The former Good Wife star continued, "Terrible. It's just silly. It's Dungeons and Dragons but real with real people."

Haha! That's sort of true, but like Dungeons and Dragons with real people that make millions of fans super happy.

To the delight of everyone, David Benioff went ahead with the show despite Amanda Peet's opinion on the matter.

However, not to worry, Amanda Peet has changed her views.

"Now I'm obsessed," Amanda Peet admitted.

She even tries her hardest to avoid spoilers, just like the rest of us. But, it might be a little more difficult for Amanda Peet, being married to one of the show's creators.

"Just this afternoon, I went to my husband's office to tell him, 'Can you do the school run?' or ask him something, and the storyboards were up for the next season, index cards on my left. I literally was like, 'David,'" she said as she covered her eyes to shield herself from the spoilers. "'David, can you pick up Frankie today?'"

Amanda Peet has been married to David Benioff since 2006. They have three adorable kids: Frankie, 7, Molly, 4, and Henry, 1 month.

What do you think of Amanda Peet's early opinion on The Game of Thrones? Aren't you glad her hubby didn't listen to her advice?
