Julia Roberts admitted she has “never watched” the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones” and said the reason why is that there is “maybe too much sex.”

The comments came during an interview with her fellow actress Patricia Arquette for “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors.” per Fox News on Monday. Arquette shared that she got her questions off Twitter from her followers and then asked the “Homecoming” star “who’s going to sit on the throne at the end of ‘Game of Thrones?'” (RELATED: These Are The Sexiest Photos Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Emilia Clarke On The Internet)

“I’m going to say Barack Obama for $500!” the 51-year-old actress explained. “I’ve never watched ‘Game of Thrones.’ But someone just told me a couple days ago, ‘You look like one of the wildings.'” (RELATED: Julia Roberts Is Spilling Out Of Her Dress At Cannes Film Festival)

Roberts continued, “My hair is super curly. This has been professionally done for this occasion, but I was at the beach, and so my hair was telling its own stories.”

The “Pretty Woman” star then expanded on her answer while sharing that the popular series was “too scary” and had “maybe too much sex.”

Arquette answered that, “There’s a lot of sex. And there’s zombies and stuff.”

“Then it’s for sure not for me,” Roberts replied.

This comes only hours after the series finale “The Iron Throne” aired Sunday night, drawing both criticism and praise from fans who have watched the series through its eight seasons on the air.
