London: Actress Emilia Clarke says she burnt her face by curling tongs and convinced her 'Game of Thrones' cast mates that it was a birthmark.
"I'm good at doing my own make-up; terrible at doing my own hair. Can't do it to save my life. Never have been, never will be. I had a book of hairstyles when I was aged nine that my mum got me, that was like 'how to do a French braid' and months and months I poured over that book - and I can't do it," Clarke told Harper's Bazaar magazine.
She added: "If I try and curl my own hair I burn my face or my ears, I am hopeless. I recently burnt my face before the 'Game of Thrones' wrap party and everyone was like 'we never noticed that massive birthmark on your face!' and I was like, 'No, it's a burn...' I had my head under the tap for about three hours!"
Clarke takes her beauty regime very seriously, but she does not believe in a whole cabinet of lotions and potions and, instead, relies on a silk pillow that she flips every night to ensure her pores do not get clogged and her hair stays frizz-free, reports femalefirst.co.uk
