Lena Headey: April 2013 Equire Feature

Posted Monday March 18, 2013 3:58 PM GMT

With her hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" gearing up for its third season, Lena Headey pitched in on promotions by scoring a feature in the April 2013 issue of Esquire Magazine.

The 39-year-old actress looked absolutely stunning in the Rankin-shot spread while dishing about everything from her career to covering up her extensive body art.

"It's funny how tattoos seem to scare people," Lena explains. "There's something about it that I love. I find it calming. At the end of the day, you're just decorating skin. I hate seeing myself covered up."

While discussing her career, the "300" beauty says she never knows what's next. "All I know is my character [on 'Game of Thrones'] isn't dead yet. And that's great, but I don't take anything for granted."

"I'm sort of like a t rex in the world of female actresses. Every time a job is finished, I look at my car and think, 'Could I live in it?'" she adds.

For more on Miss Headley's interview, be sure to pay a visit to Esquire and don't forget to tune in for the season premiere of Game of Thrones on March 31st (Easter Sunday).
