'Game of Thrones' Star The Mountain's Got Game!!! Hot GF Is Half His Size

12/10/2017 12:20 AM PST
Exclusive Details

The real-life giant who plays The Mountain on "Game of Thrones" has something new to brag about ... his girlfriend's a smoke show, and a relatively tiny one at that.

Hafthor Julius Bjornsson is dating Kelsey Henson from Canada. We're told the 6'9" actor hit it off with Kelsey -- who's 5'2" --  in September when she asked for a pic with him at Earls Kitchen + Bar in Alberta. She was working there, and Thor was in town for a Strongman competition.

He's a 7-time Strongest Man in his native Iceland, btw.

Since then, the couple's been traveling all over together ... visiting Spain, Cyprus and his homeland. We're told they're doing the long distance thing for now, but she plans to visit him again in January.

Atta boy, Ser Gregor.

Breaking News

The guy who plays "The Mountain" on "Game of Thrones" says he MAJORLY "held back" when he sparred Conor McGregor back in 2015 ... because he coulda Prince Oberyn'd the guy for real. 

You remember the video ... 6'9'', 400-pound Icelandic strongman Hafthor Julius Bjornsson toyed with the 5'9" UFC star in a training sesh in Ireland before Conor's big fight against Jose Aldo

Hafthor talked about the throwdown with RT Sport and said he went easy because, "If I would push all my power into him, I would crush him. Crush him."

"I had to hold myself back because I have too much power for a man his size."

He's right. 

R.I.P. Oberyn's face.

Joe Jonas is an engaged man -- 'cause he just announced he proposed to girlfriend Sophie Turner ... and she said yes!

When you know, you know ... we guess. 

She said yes.

'Game of Thrones' Star Tom Hopper Jon And Dany's Incest is Natural

8/31/2017 7:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The guy who played Dickon Tarly on "Game of Thrones" ain't bothered by Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen's incest in the finale ... 'cause it was inevitable.

We got Tom Hopper at LAX -- but before we got to Jon and Dany, we had to know ... why no shirtless scenes from his buff character before meeting his fate ... courtesy of dragon's breath.

Tom has an explanation for that, and also some thoughts on why the King of the North and the Dragon Queen hooking up isn't that big of a deal ... even if she's his aunt.

His theory has more to do with the plot leading up to that big reveal, but still ... Tom seems down.

'GoT' Actor Liam Cunningham Betting on Me to Survive ... That's a Dangerous Game!!!

7/23/2017 1:25 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Game of Thrones" actor Liam Cunningham has some potentially spoiler-filled advice about betting on his character to last on the show ... but you know you want to hear it.

We got Liam -- aka Ser Davos Seaworth -- on L Street in San Diego heading to Comic-Con festivities Saturday ... and our guy tells him he's banking on Davos to survive. Watch for yourself ... but it certainly doesn't seem like a lock.

Betting on ANYONE to survive on HBO's hit show is about as wise as using a fork to fight a White Walker, though. Plus, if Ed Sheeran can pop up with a singing cameo ... anything can happen.

We don't have to wait long to see what's next for Davos ... 'Thrones' airs Sunday night at 9.

Ed Sheeran 'GoT' Trolls Win ... Deletes Twitter Account

7/18/2017 7:44 AM PDT

9:15 AM PT -- Ed reactivated his account. Looks like he's starting fresh by deleting tweets all the way back to April 3, 2015 and only with about 8k followers.Ed Sheeran got beat like Ramsay Bolton in the Battle of the Bastards -- enough "Game of Thrones" fans lit him up for his singing cameo that he's bowed out of the Twittersphere.

Ed deleted his 19.6 million-strong account Monday night after haters bombarded him with criticism for the very brief scene -- which many thought was too real for the fantasy world of 'GoT.'

Ed did say he'd be quitting Twitter about a month ago, but the timing is still a little suspect. His other social media pages are intact.

Important note for the haters ... his performance couldn't have been that bad since Sunday's season 7 premiere broke HBO's viewership record ... up 27% from last year's premiere.

Ed Sheeran 'GoT' Cameo Gets Mixed Reviews Mostly For Randomness

7/17/2017 7:46 AM PDT

Ed Sheeran didn't stray far from his lane for his "Game of Thrones" debut, but not everyone is convinced he deserves two thumbs up for the performance.

Sheeran's brief appearance on the show is now one of the most talked about things about Sunday night's season 7 premiere. The reviews are mixed ... which is weird since he had a trivial role and stuck mostly to singing ... by a campfire, while eating rabbit.

Word of Sheeran's cameo role came out back in March -- and the show's had a bunch of other musicians on it like Coldplay's Will Champion and Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody. So, maybe expectations were just too high.

Something tells us Ed would've had a chart topper in Westeros.

'Game Of Thrones' Star Uses NY Jets to Save His Role ... Allegedly

7/16/2017 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here's "Game of Thrones" star Alfie Allen -- aka Theon Greyjoy -- rockin' a NY Jets hat in L.A. this week. 

When pressed about his favorite player on the Jets, Allen didn't know a damn thing about the NFL team and instead jokingly named soccer legend Thierry Henry

There's only one explanation -- George R.R. Martin, the mad genius behind 'GOT.'

Martin's a huuuuge NY Jets fan -- die-hard -- and often blogs about how his team drives him absolutely crazy. 

So, here's the theory: Allen's going Green to kiss Martin's ass so he won't kill off his character ... because as EVERYONE knows -- no one is safe on that show. 

Will the hat work? New season starts Sunday, so we'll find out soon enough ... 

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner Little Red Corvette

6/11/2017 12:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joe Jonas made Prince proud on Saturday ... and probably his girlfriend, Sophie Turner, too.

The couple was spotted cruising around Malibu in Joe's little red vintage Corvette ... this after hiking together in L.A. earlier the same day.

Eyewitnesses tell us Joe stopped off for gas at PCH and Cross Creek, and got some girls at the gas station to lose their minds once they realized who he was.

We're told Joe kept his cool -- he's used to that kind of reaction by now. And after that ... vroom vroom. 

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner She Puts a Spring In My Step

5/9/2017 7:42 AM PDT

Joe Jonas and "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner are so that couple ... y'know the type ... so freakin' happy they're floating on air.

They were skipping through the streets of downtown Manhattan Monday looking like they were having the time of their lives together ... and making everyone around them feel like their lives are crap. 

The couple hooked up last fall, and it's clearly serious since Sophie's wearing Joe's "Overthrow" hoodie.

Sorry, 'GOT' fans ... the gear is NOT a subtle hint for season 7, it's just Joe's boxing gym.

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner Plenty of Satisfaction ...

4/14/2017 6:56 AM PDT

Joe Jonas is all good to the power of 2!

Joe and gf Sophie Turner were strolling through the SoHo district Thursday in NYC and it's pretty damn clear Joe's delivering the goods. Actually ... more like good, good, and Sophie seems plenty satisfied.

If her smiling face doesn't say it all then just take a closer look ... it's literally written all over her left hand and in plain view -- "Joe Gives Me Da Good Good."

Good work, Joe ... and get it, Sophie!

Lena Headey Making Over $1 Mil Per 'GoT' Episode ... Ex-Husband Claims

12/14/2016 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lena Headey got a HUGE pay raise on "Game of Thrones" and is now making more than $1 million PER EPISODE ... so claims her ex-husband, who's got plans for that extra dough.

Peter Loughran just filed new docs asking the court to make Lena pay his legal fees in their nasty custody battle -- to the tune of $40k. He says it's only fair, since he's jobless and Lena's sleeping on a bed of 'GoT' cash.

It's interesting ... there were reports Lena was set to make upwards of $500k per episode for season 7, but Peter obviously thinks she's making more than double that already.

The judge hasn't ruled on his request for Lena to pay.
