GAME OF THRONES star Emilia Clarke looked out of this world at the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Emilia, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, commanded attention at the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival.

In an interview at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday as part of the Kering Women in Motion talks, the "Solo: A Star Wars Story" lead condemned the usage of the phrase "strong women" by journalists as sexist. The end. That's it. Take the strong out of it. Find another adjective, dammit!

"Walking on set, I felt a difference in the room that was really interesting to navigate but then you kind of ease into it and you say 'this is it!'".

"Or just ask boys how it feels to be strong", Clarke replied. There's like a weak option? "I mean, the list goes on", Clarke noted. You think a lead in a movie is going to be weak? "But yeah, so I get very frustrated with that in particular because you don't get 'strong men, ' unless they're like physically strong men. Unless I'm packing guns I don't know about, then let's change that".

Her first big break was on HBO's wildly successful Game Of Thrones - about to enter its eighth and final series - where she says she has always been paid the same as her co-stars.

The actress, who plays dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO fantasy drama, now wrapping up the final ever season; she claimed not to know how it all will end, but predicted that no-one would be able to predict it. So when there would come a job where that was maybe being discussed, again, it's shocking - actually shocking.

Variety quotes her saying: 'You start to dig deep and see where it is, rife in the industry.

United States actor Alden Ehrenreich (L), British actress Emilia Clarke and United States director Ron Howard arrive on May 15, 2018 for the screening of the film "Solo: A Star Wars Story". "So I think it's mainly in the beginning, just be aware of that and going, 'Can you just check?' You just start to fight harder for that stuff".
