Lena Headey stated that she did not want Cersei to appear nude up until this moment, because it wouldn’t serve the story and in fact would take away from the power of suddenly seeing her stripped down. So Headey was excited to do this scene, and do it the right way. Naked.
Unfortunately, the Church of St. Nicholas has other ideas. That’s the Croatian church that the production uses as the Great Sept of Baelor in the town of Cavtat. According to TMZ, they are none too pleased with the prospect of public displays of sexuality, and so apparently they have not only denied the series access to film in the church but have also pressured the local authorities to deny the production the permits they need to film.
In other words, a Church is using moral outrage over a woman’s sexuality to stop the filming of a scene illustrating the danger of a Church using moral outrage over a woman’s sexuality to punish a woman."
Anonymous asked: i actually might! i'm probably going to start a new blog anyway since a lot of my friends know my current blog and like you said, i like the anonymity of the internet and i'd rather have one where nobody knows me from real life. i would feel more comfortable reblogging random things and just posting my thoughts. oh my gosh, sorry for rambling! i'm Ellie btw. i feel kinda weird messaging you three times as an anon so thanks for still replying to my asks :) hope you didn't mind them too much
Feel free to ramble, Ellie. I really like hearing about other people so it’s no problem at all :)
Anonymous asked: i didn't expect a reply, actually! thanks for answering my ask so quickly! i totally get the whole thing about dressing well, i feel like part of it (for me) is that dressing well generally goes hand-in-hand with coming off as confident (at least in my experience of meeting people) and that's attractive to me. but i kinda go extremes - either super confident, or really shy and takes some time to open up. anyway, i'm too shy to come off anon haha but you see awesome+have a great blog, jus sayin(:
I agree about clothes and confidence…though my mood also is a factor. I put more effort when I feel good, or sometimes if I’m down and trying to make myself happy.
I usually am very reserved…I didn’t expect to reply, to be honest, but I guess there’s something nice in the anonymity of the internet. I’m shy, too, so I get it, but feel free to come off anon if you ever feel up to it! I’m always up for a chat :)
Anonymous asked: hey! i was wondering what you look for in a partner? besides, of course, personality which is most important. but i mean physically, do you have a type? because although one would be drawn to someone with a great personality regardless of hair colour or height, i was just wondering if you DID find anything particularly more attractive. like red hair vs blonde hair, or brown eyes vs green eyes, or tall vs short, etc. sorry if this question makes you uncomfortable! that wasn't my intention
Whoa, my first anon! holy shit haha. i don’t know how to respond…
That’s an interesting question. I’m tempted to write a super-long response, but it’s like 3am and I should at least attempt to go to bed.
I don’t know if I have a type…I think everyone is physically attractive in some way. I do tend to gravitate towards people with dark hair, and gingers, too. I think ideally someone around my height, give or take a few inches, is fine. Those are really the only characteristics that I might think about. I find that as attractive as I may find someone physically, if we can’t connect personality-wise, it’s just not going to work.
Oh, and maybe not related, but I really like people who are “fashionable”…I look at them and it’s like a mix of envy and lust :p
