Cersei schools Jimmy Kimmel: 'Enjoy it while it lasts'

Jimmy Kimmel and Lena Headey, the actress who plays Cersei Lannister on "Game of Thrones," trade insults over a goblet of wine. Everyone wins.

Cersei Lannister may be the Lannister everyone loves to hate on "Game of Thrones," but not for Jimmy Kimmel. In fact, Kimmel is quite fond of Cersei, most notably her affection for wine and her ability to sling wicked insults at whomever she happens to be drinking with.

So when Kimmel had Lena Headey, the actress who plays Cersei on the HBO series, on his show, he thought he would try trading barbs with Headey in character, hoping he could finally be the one to best her antics.

And for a while Kimmel actually held his own, but Headey ultimately had her way with him with quips such as, "That is a lovely tie. It's a shame it's around such a worthless neck," and "You have such a way with words. I wonder if you'll be as clever when I have your tongue ripped from your throat."

It's a fun exchange, and you should check it out for yourself in the video above. Then go ahead and cry, since it'll be a long while before Season 5 airs on HBO.
