Am I the only person who felt like Seth MacFarlane and Emilia Clarke were kind of a random couple? He’s thirty-nine, she’s twenty-five and they’ve never even worked on a project together, as far as I know. Unless there’s some kind of Game Of Thrones and Family Guy crossover thing that I’m not aware of, which would be…kinda whacky. But I would also watch it, because I have my finger on the pulse of society, okay?!? But anyway, everyone’s minds can go back to being unblown, because Emilia and Seth have reportedly broken up. According to a source who spoke to E! News:
“They are no longer dating. It was really a location challenge. She has been in Europe shooting Game of Thrones and he is based in California, so it was hard to make it work despite the distance. They have remained friends.”
A ‘location challenge’? No, that’s so un-fun! I wanted it to be something super dramatic, like maybe Emilia was offended as a woman by Seth’s Oscar hosting bits. Actually, that’s barely even a joke, because I have a sneaking suspicion that dozens of news outlets are writing up a story with that exact angle right now. Oscar night was the first time Emilia ever saw Seth for who he really is — never before in her presence had he ever uttered anything even borderline offensive. IT WAS AN UNMASKING. They were first seen together last September at the HBO Emmy after party at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood…getting cozy, or canoodling, or heating up, or whatever cliched term you’d like to employ. Let’s just make sure we get Taylor Swift on the case, because I’m expecting a retaliation song from Emilia to Seth post-haste. Maybe something along the lines of ‘We Saw Your…Balls?’ I don’t know, ask Taylor.
