Natalie Dormer is beautiful. Natalie Dormer is talented. Natalie Dormer is, from all appearances, fairly chill. But, as one questioner at today’s Game of Thrones panel at the New York Comic Con pointed out, Natalie Dormer also looks like a pig.
Specifically, Natalie Dormer looks like Denise the Pig, Kermit the Frog’s hot, bedroom-eyed new girlfriend on ABC’s The Muppets TV show. Squint your eyes, add a dash of imagination, and look below.

It’s kind of amazing, isn’t it?
Of course, telling someone that they look like a pig and asking how they feel about is—how shall one put this—unavoidably problematic (no matter how conventionally attractive that pig happens to be). Consequently, the interchange between Dormer and the questioner results in what could become a banner moment in the annals of fan/star interaction.
Honestly, it’s so funny, so cute, and so revealing of Dormer’s childhood (yep) that we’d rather not spoil a single thing about it. Kick back and enjoy the smirking and strong anti-bullying message. The good stuff starts at 14:30.
