Awkward fan encounters come with the celebrity territory, but the fan interaction Games of Thrones star Lena Headey experienced in the hospital after giving birth to her second child is pretty next level on the awkward scale.
Headey opened up on the The Late Late Show with James Corden about what just might be the strangest fan encounter ever involving breastfeeding, her nipples and that iconic shame walk scene on Game of Thrones.
“I recently had my second child and I was in the hospital and there was a lovely nurse who would come and do night duty,” Headey told Corden.
The nurse quickly admitted to Headey that she was a really big fan of Game of Thrones, which makes the next part of this story a little less surprising but still totally awkward and uncomfortable.
“I was trying to breastfeed [my daughter] to calm her down, and this is a lot of info, everyone,” Headey told the audience. “So when you’re in the early stages of breastfeeding, you have to kind of get them milking; it takes a bit of hand-milking of sorts.”
Headey said her man was trying to help her, but she compared his attempt in aiding the breastfeeding process to milking a goat, so the nurse stepped in.
“She came around and sat next to me and squeezed my nipple and went, ‘Shame,'” Headey said, causing Corden and the audience to burst into hysterical laughter.
“And then she said it again and then I saw her go, ‘I’m sorry, I can’t believe I said that,'” Headey revealed.
OMG. How awkward! The nurse apparently had Cersei’s iconic shame walk on her mind. Even though the nurse admitted to being a fan, we still can’t believe she let that one slip out.
