Did Peter Dinklage really pose for a selfie with Grumpy Cat?

Websites went wild when a photo purportedly showing the “Game of Thrones” star with the Internet’s favorite feline appeared on Twitter and other social media.

Perez Hilton, for instance, posted the pic and announced, “This Photo of Grumpy Tyrion Lannister Meeting Grumpy Cat Will Turn YOUR Frown Upside Down!” (see right and below).

We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but… it’s fake.

It’s the result of some Photoshop and wishful thinking.

The original photo, showing just Dinklage and the fans behind him — but no Grumpy Cat — was posted online months ago (click here to see).

Ben Lashes, Grumpy Cat’s agent, has confirmed to Mashable that the famous pet has never met Dinklage.

We’re sorry.
