dormer-deniseFew months back, Interent noticed similarities between Natalie Dormer and Kermit the Frog’s new girlfriend and it seems the actress, who plays Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones, is well aware of the comparisons.

Speaking at New York Comic Con, Dormer told that she isn’t offended about the comparisons to Denise the Pig. In fact, she claims that it is partly her fault as to why she was compared to the Muppets’ character:

“There’s a scene in season 3 where I’m walking on all the cliffs with Sansa, and I’m telling her how I was teased as a young girl for my nose. I asked in a dinner with David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss], ‘Please, can you put in a line about a pig nose?’ I was bullied at school, I used to get told I had pig nostrils. I said for my own demons, it would be sticking two middle fingers up to the bullies of my childhood. If you watch the DVDs, you’ll see me oinking backstage. When I saw that Kermit had a new girlfriend, I thought I might be responsible for that. I brought up the pig subject myself.”
