Emilia Clarke, 36, Faces Criticism Over Aging Face In A Selfie And Is Urged To Use Filters
Emilia Clarke, the talented actress known for her iconic role in the hit series "Game of Thrones," has recently found herself in the spotlight once again. At 36 years old, she continues to captivate audiences with her performances and charm.
However, a recent selfie of hers has ignited discussions online, with some critics pointing out changes in her appearance. Luckily, her fans raised their voice to defend her and celebrate their all-natural look.
On Feb 23, the actress posted a photo on Instagram where she wears minimal makeup. In the photo, she smiles brightly while holding a mug, her mother’s gift. However, some people leave a number of negative comments.
One user commented, “What’s happening with those hairs, they’re worse than mine right now.” Another wrote, “Big forehead and looks 50 years old now.” A person commented that she “hit a wall” as a way to criticize her natural features.
To defend her, some fans gave compliments in the comments. A fan wrote, “It’s not cool to put someone down for aging!” Another added, “Thank you for laughing so much Emilia, you make the world brighter". We see a comment, saying, “This is by far the most beautiful woman in Hollywood.” Someone mentioned her natural features, writing, “Beautiful — actual smile lines in an IG pic.”
This isn’t the first time the Game of Thrones star was given negative comments about her looks. The actress revealed that at age 28, she was suggested to get fillers by a facialist.
However, she was afraid of the effect she can face as she gets older. She said, “You've got this idea of aging, and then you've got the idea of what aging makes you look like."
After all, Clarke decided to embrace aging signs and said, “At 34, I am wiser, more intelligent, I’ve had more experiences, I’ve done all this stuff, and I’m proud of that.” She then noted that “You can only do that because you are the age you are."
She claimed that she never cares how she ages, “If my face is gonna reflect the time that I’ve spent on this earth, I’m down for that.”
