Peter Dinklage talks 'Game of Thrones' fights and being a 'DwILF' in Playboy

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is well-known for his dry sense of humor, and he puts it to good use when the subject turns to ‘DwILFs’ and a YouTube video dedicated to how much, um, sexual activity he partakes in off-screen during a NSFW-interview with Playboy.

In the magazine’s latest “20 Questions” feature, the actor who plays Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s smash adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy book series is very forthright about his cash-poor years as a musician and actor in New York, his eccentric childhood, and Thrones fandom. (“Game of Thrones fans are the nicest people ever, but a thousand nice people coming at me gives me claustrophobia.”)

He also doesn’t shy away from sex-symbol talk and his friends’ concerns that he once “dissed” Brangelina at the Golden Globes.

Check out some of the best quotes from Dinklage’s Playboy interview below.


Lena Dunham keeps her clothes on for 'Playboy' interview

Lena Dunham, the 26-year-old multihyphenate behind HBO’s Golden Globe-winning Girls, sat down for an informative Q&A with Playboy — and regardless of how you feel about her work, it’s a pretty entertaining read. From the piece, you’ll learn that Dunham always carries a metal spoon in her purse, that she first learned what sex was when she was five years old, and that the two deadly sins she’s most guilty of are “gluttony and sloth.” Other fun facts gleaned from the interview:

Booth Jonathan’s memorably aggressive pick-up line (“I want you to know, the first time I f—- you I might scare you a little”) was inspired by a real-life incident
“Someone once said something like that to me,” Dunham recalled, “with the immediate caveat ‘I, uh, learned that from my friend who works at Vice magazine.'”

She’s got big ideas for how to change the world
“We’d have a better world if everyone had someone they could pay for talk therapy.”

She appreciates being average-looking
Asked what she’d do if she woke up in a lingerie model’s body, Dunham says she’d simply be confused before musing, “Not being the babest person in the world creates a nice barrier. The people who talk to you are the people who are interested in you. It must be a big burden in some ways to look that way and be in public.” That said, of course, “I probably would want to see if I could get free food at restaurants.”


Stephen Colbert talks about grief, fear, and Jon Stewart in rare serious interview with 'Playboy'

In an instance when you really should read it for the articles, Playboy magazine’s November issue features a rare serious interview with Stephen Colbert, as opposed to “Stephen Colbert,” the political pundit caricature he plays on his satirical late night show, The Colbert Report.

It’s not often we see Stephen Colbert as the real Stephen Colbert, but he’s shaken off his character twice this month: First for Oprah, and now for Playboy.

Colbert explained to the magazine his reasoning for not staying in character for the interview: “If I’m doing a talk show or an interview like this, or pretty much anything where I can’t control the context, I’m loath to do the character. Because outside the context of the show, you have to be okay with the clang of [that character] against reality.”

In the interview, Colbert talked about his childhood love of science fiction, his visit to the set of The Hobbit, the death of his father and two brothers when he was 10 years old, and his friendship with Jon Stewart. You can check out the full interview online here, but we know you PopWatchers are busy folks what with all that pop culture consumption you have to do, so here’s a look at the highlights:  READ FULL STORY

Hugh Hefner defends same-sex marriage in 'Playboy'

Hugh Hefner — never one to shy away from discussing his liberal sexual politics — wrote an impassioned editorial for the September issue of Playboy (via Politico) about his support for same-sex marriage that attacks what he calls an “assault to the rights of gays.”

“The fight for gay marriage is, in reality, a fight for all of our rights. Without it, we will turn back the sexual revolution and return to an earlier, puritanical time,” he says.

“Today, in every instance of sexual rights falling under attack, you’ll find legislation forced into place by people who practice discrimination disguised as religious freedom. Their goal is to dehumanize everyone’s sexuality and reduce us to using sex for the sole purpose of perpetuating our species. To that end, they will criminalize your entire sex life,” Hefner adds.


Joseph Gordon-Levitt hates cable news, loves musicals and Christian Bale

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s recent Playboy interview reads like it was partially scripted by an Aaron Sorkin who doesn’t hate the Internet. During a wide-ranging conversation, the Premium Rush star revealed his biggest disappointment as a child actor (he wasn’t allowed to pet the dog in Beethoven), his love of musicals (“A song-and-dance role is closer to me personally than other characters I play”), and his disdain for the national news media. Here’s his Will McAvoy-esque rant:

My parents are political in that they’re well read and as up on the news as anybody I know. To me that is political activism, choosing to stay informed and not just watching CNN or some bulls– entertainment show. Every time I sit down and watch television news, I think, This is show business. That’s what I do. I say, go on the internet and find news from all over the world through the BBC, the Pacifica stations, newspapers, people’s blogs and tweets. It’s so funny when people say Fox is bad. Sure Fox is bad, but I don’t think CNN and MSNBC are really any better.

One question later, Gordon-Levitt slammed the media again, adding in a dig at a few major corporations for good measure:


Jenny McCarthy singles out right breast in 'Playboy'

What better way to celebrate one’s upcoming 40th birthday than to pose for Playboy? I would have gone with a cake and a box or three of wine. I’m living my life all wrong.

Supposedly this wax figurine to your right is Love in the Wild host Jenny McCarthy. Let’s check out her entire airbrushed naked body below and see if it’s a match!

Here’s something President Obama won’t want to sing about: In a new interview with Playboy, comedic actor David Cross admits to snorting cocaine at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2009 while only 65 feet away from President Obama.

“It was just about being able to say that I did it, that I did cocaine in the same room as the president. I’m not proud of it, nor am I ashamed of it,” he confessed, seemingly legitimizing it by saying the amount he ingested was only the size of “a tick.”

“It was a tiny granule of coke that I put on my wrist and said, “Watch this. I need a witness.” And then I ducked under the table and did it. It wasn’t like I got high,” he says in the interview. READ FULL STORY
