Los Angeles  - Emilia Clarke rejected a role in Fifty Shades Of Grey because of the "huge amount of nudity" in the movie.

The 28-year-old actress - who's best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series Game of Thrones - has revealed she was in line to play the part of Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of EL James' best-selling novel, but turned it down because she was worried about being typecast.

She shared: "I really wanted to work with [director] Sam Taylor-Johnson because she's fucking amazing. But there is a huge amount of nudity in the film.

"I'll never say 'I'm never doing nudity' because I've already done it, but I thought I might get stuck in a pigeonhole that I would have struggled to get out of."

Meanwhile, the actress stars as Sarah Connor alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the much-anticipated Terminator Genisys and has revealed the extent of her preparation for the role.

She told the July issue of Marie Claire magazine: "Those fucking guns are super heavy. You're running with them a lot of the time, and I needed to keep up with/be better than the boys.

"I needed to know what to do to have Arnold go, 'Very nice'. That was my goal."
