Q: I think most of us agree that TV right now is the best it’s possibly ever been. What are some of the shows that you just can’t get enough of?
I like a lot of different shows. (Laughs) I watch a lot of stuff that people are somewhat shocked by – but I am absolutely like foaming at the mouth over “Game of Thrones.” Like, I can not get enough of that. When my son came in my life, that was a bottle feed because I couldn’t watch television; I used to watch so little. That was my TiVo feed every two hours – watching “Game of Thrones.” My mom was like, “Do you think it’s fine that you’re feeding your son while there’s like sword fights?” I was like, “It’s fine, Mom. It’s fine.” So, I’m somewhat obsessed with that right now. I like “Veep.” I’m really excited for Aaron Sorkin’s new show.
Q: I have to ask you a follow-up. If they reached out to you to do Season 3 or 4 of Game of Thrones, is that the type of show you’d be like, “I’m going?”
I’d be totally open to it. I’m open to anything, dude. I’m open to anything. That’s what I would ask the aliens [in a previous interview, Theron had been asked what question she would ask aliens]. I’d be like, “Do you watch ‘Game of Thrones?’” Yeah, I’m open to do anything. I’d be like “Hey, alien, what do you think of ‘Game of Thrones’? Lord Snow, really?” (Laughter)
