Game of Thrones usually delivers boobs by the bunch, but now it might be forced to hold back the pair viewers most want to see ... and it's all God's fault!
The plan was for Lena Headey to get nude at a church, but Cersei Lannister's fans better start praying hard ... 'cause right now the good church folk ain't down for naked knockers.
'Game of Thrones'
Best Boobs On Show
Victim of Church Cover-Up

The most coveted boobs on TV may stay covered ... and you can blame the church.
Everybody -- actually 90% of men based on Kinsey and probably 40% of women -- are drooling at the prospect of ogling Cersei Lannister's royal cans.
Here's the problem. The scene calls for Cersei -- played by Lena Headey -- to walk out of a church and onto the streets of King's Landing in the buff. The scene is supposed to be shot in Dubrovnik, Croatia, where the church has a lot of power and a rigid policy against public displays of sexuality.
We're told the local film commission will not give producers a permit to shoot the scene because they take their cue from the church -- in this case the Church of St. Nicholas.
Sources tell TMZ ... they can't cut the scene because it's crucial to the story line and it's an iconic moment from the book.
So far ... producers haven't figured out a workaround ... and Hail Marys probably won't do the trick.

I'm NOT Obsessed With 'Weenies'
... But I Love Boobs!
7/28/2014 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
George R.R. Martin says "South Park'" got it all wrong ... claiming he's NOT the wiener-obsessed old man he was made out to be ... he's more of a boob man!
The "Game of Thrones" creator decided to set the record straight at Comic-Con during an interview with Clevver News -- right after he admitted that he's never actually watched the famous "GoT" episode.
"I do have to say I've been told that my character on 'South Park' is obsessed about weenies. I have to deny this as a scurrilous rumor."
But what Martin says next is even more entertaining than watching Lord Tyrion bitch slap Joffrey.

*** "Games of Thrones" spoilers below ***
Just because one of their characters got killed off the show, it doesn't mean the end for "Game of Thrones" couple Kit Harington and Rose Leslie.
The pair, a couple both on and off-screen for the last few years, were spotted Wednesday at LAX, sporting matching black sunglasses as they hopped a flight out of Los Angeles.
For a guy who knows nothing, Jon Snow sure can hang on to a hot chick.

If you're a fan of "Game of Thrones" … or just a fan of really hot bodies sit back and enjoy our run-in with Nathalie Emmanuel -- who plays the Khaleesi's very able bodied assistant.
We caught up with her fully clothed -- but her now super famous 'GoT' scene really does make her fans … make strange noises.

I Won A $30K Iron Throne
And It Won't Fit In My NJ Apartment
6/25/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A man's home is his castle ... unless it's a dude who lives in a shoe box of an apartment in New Jersey that's too small for his life-size replica of the "Game of Thrones" throne.
Mike Ross tells TMZ ... he won a reproduction of the Iron Throne in an HBO fan contest ... it was just delivered to his Hoboken apt. Problem is ... it's 7'2" tall and 350 lbs -- and it doesn't fit.
For now ... he's sticking it in an even less regal setting -- his parents' garage.
It's an awesome chair ... a $30K hand painted fiberglass knockoff made to look like it was constructed with swords ... just like the one crafted by Aegon I Targaryen, the first king of the Seven Kingdoms.
Mike says he loves it ... but is open to offers from other GoT fans.
He wants to use the money ... for a down payment on a bigger place.

Iron vs. Royal

Queen Elizabeth took a little jaunt to the “Game of Thrones” set in Ireland and came face-to-face with the Iron Throne … but did she sit in it?
Better question … which throne is cooler: the one for ruling the Seven Kingdoms or the one for ruling the United Kingdom? That's right … we have ourselves a THRONE-OFF!!!!
You Call That a Throne?

It consists of a thousand blades ... was forged together with the hot breath of an ancient dragon ... but Queen Elizabeth II didn't seem to impressed today when she laid her eyes upon the Iron Throne.
QE was out in Northern Ireland checking out the set of "Game of Thrones" when she got up close and personal with the chair reserved for the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms.
During her tour of the set, Lizzy met a bunch of the cast members ... including Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie and Conleth Hill.
As for the Queen's REAL throne -- it's pretty pimptastic.

The "GoT" star was cruising around Toronto with his wife and their 2-year old daughter ... luckily, no lying mistress prostitutes were spotted nearby.
Also no sign of White Walkers, Wildlings, dragons, naked people, Dothraki, exploding heads, woolly mammoths, Targaryens, giants, moon doors or members of the Night's Watch.
... Sunday is coming.

My Sister Didn't Play My Sister

Alfie Allen, best known as Theon Grayjoy on "Game of Thrones," came thiiis close to trying to bone his real life sister, singer Lily Allen -- but wait, wait ... don't freak out!
See, Lily almost played Alfie's sister on the show -- which would've been seriously awkward since he tries to grope his TV sis before he knows they're bro and sis. Yeah, GoT is confusing. And awesome.
We Want Game of Thrones Man-Ass ...

PLAYGIRL wants a piece of "Game of Thrones" man-ass -- and balls ... but not just in a box.
Sunday night after stud warrior Daario Naharis dropped his drawers ... fans went crazy on social media and PLAYGIRL noticed. The consensus -- the hottest male ass ever on TV.
PLAYGIRL publisher Vincent Stevens tells TMZ there is now high, full-frontal demand, and his magazine is the perfect place to showcase Daario's goods.
So Stevens emailed actor Michiel Huisman -- who also played sexy music producer Liam on "Nashville" -- urging him to "correct the oversight" and pose naked.
We reached out to Huisman but he's the silent type.

George R. R. Martin:
I Haven't Started Writing the Last Book!
5/14/2014 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Good news: George R.R. Martin says he's still chipping away at the "Game of Thrones" books "one page at a time."
Bad News: When we asked if the last book will be done by the time the HBO show catches up, he gave a less-than-encouraging response ... "Who the hell knows?!"
Martin was out at The Grove in L.A. where we asked him about his progress on the books behind the incredible TV show (books he writes in DOS, btw).
And though he wasn't spilling secrets left and right, he did reveal his favorite CHARACTER in the series ... which made us happy, 'cause it's gotta be harder to kill off someone you like, right?
