Lena Headey had a blast as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday night–and his audience had a blast as she thoroughly entertained them.
Kimmel set a challenge before Headey, and she didn’t for a moment disappoint.
“One of the great things that you do on Game of Thrones, your character Cersei, you say the meanest things in a very cool way. You insult the others, you actually threaten them,” he explained to Lena Headey. “This happens on The Bachelor, as well, with the women. I thought it would be fun if we put some of the real lines from the show this year in our teleprompter for you to read them in character.”
Before starting, Lena Headey grabbed a goblet of wine and assumed a domineering pose.

“I don’t think there’s one girl here who’s competition,” she read, quoting one Bachelor hopeful fighting for Ben Higgins’ heart on season 20 of the ABC show. “I think I’m way prettier than everyone else.”
“I think her boobs are fake, but it’s OK. Like, you can tell that they’re fake. And her breath is horrible. I wonder if they’ve kissed because I’m sure he smells what I smell,” Lena Headey said, taking on a second insulting line from The Bachelor.

At this point Game of Thrones fans were no doubt laughing hysterically, as were good natured fans of The Bachelor. Those who take The Bachelor way too seriously were likely a bit miffed by Lena Headey’s fun.
Did you see Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday night? What did you think of Lena Headey’s reading of insults from The Bachelor in her Games of Thrones character as Cersei Lannister?
