Want to smell like Tyrion Lannister?


Peter Dinklage’s character Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones was written to be hot. He’s the intellectual black sheep of the rich and powerful Lannister family, who stands out as much for his ultimately warm heart as he does with his wits, but Peter definitely brings his own mojo to the role.

The DwILF answered Playboy‘s 20 questions, and his responses are wonderful.

About YouTube video called “Peter Dinklage Gets So Much P—y,” in which two guys speculate about his sex life:

“By ‘p—y’ do they mean actual p—y? Or is it a metaphor, like for gardening? Because if that’s the case, then yes, I’ve been doing a lot of gardening lately. If they mean sex, they might be getting me confused with somebody else. But if p—y means wearing old-man sweaters and watering my herb garden, then absolutely, I’m getting so much p—y.”

(Peter has been happily married to Erica Schimdt since 2005, and they welcomed a daughter in 2011:)

On his sex symbol DwILF status:

DwILF, as in Dwarf I’d Like to F*ck? That’s very clever. Honestly, I think there’s an irony in all of this. I take it with a grain of salt. They’ll say, “Oh, he’s sexy,” but women still go for guys who are six-foot-two. It’s nice that people are thinking outside the box, but I don’t believe any of it for a minute.

On, as a New Jersey boy, whether his life is more like Bruce Springsteen or Jersey Shore:

It’s funny you mention Springsteen. I was born in Bay Head, New Jersey, and his manager lived next door to us. Bruce used to come over to his house and hang out. This was when I was two, so I don’t remember any of it. My mom and dad went to a wedding at a surfboard factory, and Bruce was in the wedding band. He was about 17 years old at the time. My mom didn’t think he was that great. She told me he was too loud.

On what it’s like to film action scenes on Game of Thrones:

“There’s a scene in the show when I chop a man’s leg off from behind. The gentleman was probably about 70 years old. They filmed him from the back, so you don’t see how old he is. Also he’s an amputee. He had one leg, so basically I just knocked out the fake leg. I had a big dull sword, and I knocked a wooden leg off an amputee who was 70 years old. So to answer your question, no, I don’t feel like a badass. The fight scenes are all a big lie. The whole time, you’re trying not to get hit in the eye with a sword, and you wish you had on a welding helmet.”

On creating a fragrance line:

“I have a friend—not a dwarf—who’s an alchemist of sorts. He concocted a men’s cologne that he calls Midgeté Midgeté. He gave me a bottle as a gift. I was thinking, We should totally put this on the market. You know how Jessica Simpson and Beyoncé have signature perfumes and make a mint? I’m thinking this cologne could be my ticket to fortune. When this Game of Thrones thing winds down, Midgeté Midgeté could be my next thing.”
