Nikolaj Coster-Waldau wept at makeover

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has recalled a time when his sister styled his hair and he started crying hysterically at the result.

The hunky Dane is used to showing his manliest side as Jaime Lannister on brutal TV series Game of Thrones. But he's not afraid to share some embarrassing stories from his past, including the time during his childhood when he claims his sister "traumatised" him for life.

"I was three years old, we were playing dress-up and my sister decided to style my hair," he revealed to the German edition of Cosmopolitan.

"When she was done, I looked in the mirror: I had curls and looked like a girl! I felt really betrayed and started crying."

The 44-year-old insists it's much harder to make him blub these days, although his two daughters, Filippa and Safina, who he has with wife Nukâka, do manage to squeeze the odd tear out of him.

Leaving his partner and the young girls behind when he heads off to filming is one of the thing Nikolaj feels most guilty about.

"I have two daughters and a wife, who I love, and I'm always leaving them alone," he sighed. "Sometimes they come along for a shoot but the little ones have to go to school. I realise it's a life choice I made, but even if I'm totally clear about that, I still don't want to be that father the kids are missing."
