When asked her opinion on Nolte in an interview with The New York Times, Roberts said that whilst Nolte could be “charming and nice”, he was also “completely disgusting”.

The reason the actors’ characters on the HBO drama Game of Thrones, Cersei and Bronn don’t have scenes together is a failed love story. The couple used to date back in 2002 and the relationship ended in a nasty breakup, causing both of them to not be on “talking terms.”
