Game Of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke has admitted that she's on a horrific diet for her new role in Terminator: Genesis, but she's not the first star to embark on a super strict weight loss plan.
The 26-year-old British star is having to undergo a strict regime to prepare for her role as Sarah Conner in the new Terminator movie, and that means a ban on a lot of the foods that she loves. All wheat, sugar, caffeine and dairy are banned.
