Arnold Schwarzenegger agrees that “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke has great hair, but thinks people should pay more attention to her “badass” acting ability than her looks. The action star took to his Twitter account on Monday to point out Hollywood’s double standard when it comes to the media’s coverage of actors and actresses. Schwarzenegger and Clarke co-star in the upcoming Terminator Genisys, in which he reprises his iconic role and she joins the franchise as the young Sarah Connor.

Not surprisingly, the hacks at HollywoodLife were more focused on Clarke’s new bob haircut on the red carpet at Sunday’s premiere in Berlin of Terminator Genisys than on her first big-screen role. The webloid posted before and after pictures of her “hair makeover,” as well as went into an in-depth expose of the products used to style her tresses so readers could copy her look.

It’s somewhat demeaning stories like that which led Schwarzenegger to tweet, “.@Emilia_Clarke’s hair is gorgeous – I’m jealous. But we should focus a little on what a badass hero she is in @Terminator as Sarah Connor.”

Clarke is, of course, best known for playing “mother of dragons” Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s smash hit “Game of Thrones,” but Terminator Genisys is her first big-budget movie. The Terminator sequel hit theaters on July 1. Check out Schwarzenegger’s tweet below about Emilia Clarke, and tell us what you think.
