Emilia Clarke has managed to turn quite a lot of heads when she starred as Daenerys Targaryen in the insanely popular TV series, 'Game of Thrones.' She surely is showered with deserved successes for her incredible performances, however, the actress recently revealed her disappointment with the show business.

Discrimination is 'everywhere'

Clarke recently had an interview with Rolling Stone, where she expressed what could be described as her womanly woes. Apparently, she feels like she is being treated differently just because she is a woman.

What's more, the thirty-year-old actress thinks that being discriminated for being female "feels like dealing with racism." She did admit that she felt naive for saying it that way, but it shows how affected she is about being treated differently just because she is of a certain gender.

"You’re aware of it, and you’re aware of it, but one day, you go, 'Oh, my God, it’s everywhere!' Like you suddenly wake up to it," the actress exclaimed. Clarke said that she went through most of her acting career not noticing it. It was like she just woke up one day and realized that discrimination is "everywhere." After working in show business for some ten odd years, she expressed that "that is [her] daily life" in the industry — referring to discrimination.

Emilia Clarke: out to prove women are just as smart as men

She also addressed the misconception that women are somehow less intellectually capable than men. Clarke felt the need to address the particular stereotype although this particular stereotype doesn't seem to plague us now, in our relatively progressive state of society.

Sure, she could be Esquire magazine's sexiest woman of 2015, but that doesn't mean that she does not have the brains to back it up. Of course, there's no reason to question if Clarke is every bit as clever and intelligent as the Mother of Dragons, and the commander of a khalasar, if not more. "Yes, I’ve got mascara on, and I also have a high IQ, so those two things can be one and the same," Clarke said.

The actress also had a few ideas to combat sexism, like starting a production company that will mostly be run by "nice, funny women."

Anyway, Emilia Clarke did not forget to be thankful for landing the 'Game of Thrones' role. She feels it's nice that, despite the sexism that she is experiencing, she is playing a strong, aggressive woman capable of leading an army and a horde of horsemen through the seven Kingdoms.
