Emilia Clarke has said that her two potentially fatal brain aneurysms have made her appreciate growing older and realise she doesn’t need plastic surgery.
The ‘Game Of Thrones’ star underwent life saving surgery in 2011 after she had suffered a brain aneurysm which made her unable to recall her name for several days.
Then in 2013, Clarke underwent surgery once again after she had suffered another aneurysm this time on the other side of her brain.
Speaking to People magazine, Clarke said that the near-death experiences helped her realise that beauty comes from the inside.
“The happy moments and being happy is what you’re going to see on your death bed. You’re not going to remember the times when you took that super cute selfie,” she said.
“After the surgery, because I felt so scared and under-confident. I was putting all of that into how I looked. As I got older, I realised that people are at their most beautiful when they’re not thinking about themselves and considering their own beauty,” she added.
Clarke also stated that she no interest in having plastic surgery or adhering too “ridiculous beauty standards”.
“The idea of me putting my face in the hands of someone else with a knife, no, no, no! Don’t come at me with that,” she said.
