Who would have thought that Lena Headey would fit right in with the women of The Bachelor? Lena guested on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote her upcoming movie, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and during the interview, Jimmy Kimmel asked her to read out some insults taken from The Bachelor. With several women competing to remain in the The Bachelor and get a rose, it is no surprise that some would bad mouth the other women behind their backs, and sometimes even to their face.
Kimmel said that Lena has the ability to “say the meanest things in a very cool way” when she is in her Game of Thrones character, Cersei Lannister. Despite never having seen a single episode of The Bachelor, Lena obliged and channeled her inner Cersei to read out insults while carrying a goblet in one hand. The lights dimmed for dramatic effect, and Lena read lines from the teleprompter taken from this season’s The Bachelor, as the Daily Mail reported.

“I don’t there’s one girl here who’s competition… I think I’m way prettier than everyone else,” Lena said as she gave a smirk and took a sip of her wine.
Lena continued to the next insult, not breaking her character. “I’m going to punch her in the face, like seriously.”
The next insult came with a tilt of the head. “Let’s be honest, who wants a f*****g virgin?”
Next came another insult, which Lena read perfectly. “I think her boobs are fake, but it’s okay. Like, you can tell that they’re fake, and her breath is horrible. I wonder if they’ve kissed, because I’m sure he smells what I smell,” said Lena.
To end it all, Lena said, “F**k these b*****es.”

During her interview, Lena Headey also talked about being a mother and what she received as a present from her five-year-old son, Wylie Elliot. Jimmy Kimmel mentioned that he had seen a picture of Headey getting lice combed out of her hair and asked if it was for Mother’s Day. Lena jokingly said that the lice was a Mother’s Day gift from her son, according to In Style.
“They love clean hair so I feel blessed. It’s a huge compliment from nature.”
In July 2015, Lena gave birth to another child, this time a baby girl. Lena Headey said that her baby is keeping her up at night.
“I’m not enjoying her so much at night. They love the waking.”
However, Lena said that, when she goes to her child at night when she wakes, all she sees is a smiling baby, which is far better than the baby crying.
