"Regarding the gender pay gap in Hollywood, Clarke said she's "always been paid the same amount" as her male co-stars".

Clarke, who made her comments during an interview at Cannes, said actors need to be attentive during negotiations for roles.

Exhausted of the one-dimensional definition of "strong", Clarke explained that she would rather talk about what it's like to play a woman in general, than harp about why her characters are "strong".

She said: "You start to dig deep and see where it is, rife in the industry. It's like the most insane, pinch you moments", Clarke exclusively told Us Weekly.

Emilia Clarke paid a special ode to her Game of thrones character with her red carpet look at Cannes

Emilia Clarke in pictures Wed, August 23, 2017 London-born actress Emilia Clarke is best known for playing Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones.

"It really feels like preparing to leave home. The end", Clarke said. "That's exciting, but it's sad and scary all at the same time", she said. (Well, so did Chewbacca - understandably so.) We just want to know: what jokes is Glover telling?

She went on to add that it's an unconventional process that she wished she had more opportunities to do, explaining, "It weirdly ended up working out in a really great way where you go, 'I kind of wish I could have a couple of months and then go back to it and fix a couple of things that I wasn't happy with on the day'".

Emilia told the host that the movement hadn't died down, but that "changing it overnight would be impossible". It just doesn't even bear having the conversation, so enough already with the strong women, please.
