Emilia Clarke Cried When She Met Beyoncé

Imagine the power in the room when Queen Bey and the Mother of Dragons Khaleesi finally met. Turns out, it was so powerful that even Emilia Clarke herself couldn’t handle meeting Beyoncé. During a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show, she revealed the surprise meeting between the two of the did not go well.

Clarke revealed that Beyoncé and Jay Z approached her at a party and the surprise encounter caught her off guard and completely overwhelmed her.

“So I did not expect to see them, you know, in the flesh, I wasn’t expecting that at all. I was just like, ‘Oh my god, I’m invited!’ And Queen Bey came up to me, and obviously, looked at me like, ‘Oh … I’d like to talk to you!’ and I just did not respond in the way that I was thinking she thought that I might respond,” said Clarke.

She revealed that she may have had a little bit too much to drink and couldn’t handle her emotions.

“As in, she obviously came up and was like, this’ll be cool, and I was like, ‘Oh my god.’ [I was] too many drinks in, started crying, it didn’t go well. I mean, literally, eyes welling up like, ‘I can’t handle this, it’s too intense,'” said Clarke.

She also recently told the story on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel and added another important, and equally embarrassing, detail to the story.

“And then I just kept trying to find them all night, and I couldn’t find them because I was crying. It breaks my heart that I messed it up,” said Clarke. To be fair, who can blame her? It is Beyoncé.
