Peter Dinklage was recently interviewed by Playboy Magazine, and he discusses everything from Game of Thrones to awards to dissing 'Brangelina'. When Dinklage won the Best Supporting Actor award during the Emmys last year, he supposedly dissed Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
When discussing the incident now, he says, "My friends were less concerned with what I said than that I apparently brushed off Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on my way to the stage. When you're in that moment and you're about to accept an award and you have no idea what you're going to say, you don't notice that Brad and Angelina are reaching out to say hello. All I saw was a sea of people I needed to get through. Friends don't care about issues like dwarf tossing. They only care about "Dude, you dissed Brangelina."
When referring to the dwarf-tossing incident, Dinklage is talking about the case of Martin Henderson, who was paralyzed during an attack in Britain. Dinklage spoke about him during the speech, and he says that although he initially didn't want to be one of those actors with a political cause, he realized that the world is 'kind of f***ed up, and sometimes you have to put a Band-Aid on the broken leg.'
Dinklage currently stars as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, which is currently in the beginning of airing its third season. Tyrion is fan favorite on the show, and Dinklage himself has admitted that this is one his favorite characters. 'Game of Thrones' airs every Sunday on HBO.
