Peter Dinklage Suits Up for 'Esquire' March 2014

Peter Dinklage Suits Up for 'Esquire' March 2014

Peter Dinklage wears his suit well on the cover of Esquire magazine’s March 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 44-year-old Game of Thrones actor had to share with the mag:

On discussing his height: “Um, how tall was Lincoln?…Well, he’s a much more important figure in history and humanity than I am. But we don’t know how tall he was exactly, do we?”

On a horrifying moment: “I was walking down Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. There was this guy on a motorcycle right in front of me”about as far away as that plant, maybe six feet? And he looked at me. He didn’t wave, but he looked at me, and then he pulled out into traffic and this car, like, boom”killed him instantly. This was in L. A., where nobody walks. It was empty. So there was this quiet moment where it was like I was the only person in the world who knew this guy was dead. And I was there looking at him, you know, in those moments of calm after something horrible happens, the calm before the melee starts, before the ambulances and the cops arrive and it becomes a scene. There was that moment when I was with him.”

On an encounter with a fan: “She didn’t seem crazy or anything,” Dinklage said, “so I asked what was the matter. And she was like, ‘I just wanted to tell you, my boyfriend died today. And ‘The Station Agent’ was his favorite movie. This is like a sign that I saw you. I can’t believe this. May I please have a hug because I’m dying right now?’ And, of course, I gave her a hug,It’s like, there are the idiots with cellphones taking your picture all the time and then there’s something like that woman. And it really moved me, because it was honest and so pure and so sad.”

    Last night, I dreamed that a midget was beating the snot out of his younger midget brother on the sidewalk outside of some nightclub; who probably deserved it. Still, it was pretty hard to watch from a basic humanity point of view.

    LOVE HIM!!!! Amazing actor! Can’t wait to start season 3 of ‘Thrones’. I’m so behind.

  • Rocky


    The word ‘midget. Is disgusting. Proper term is ‘Little Person’!!

    I haven’t really heard of him before reading this but he sounds really down to earth and unlike most celebrities has some depth.

  • DanaJ

    So…. the guy on the motorcycle… The last thing he saw in his life was Peter Dinklage walking down the street? That is so… David Lynch movie.

  • Cindy

    Excellent actor. He’s broken alot barriers it seems.

  • yes!

    And such an amazing actor.

  • Joblo

    @Leticia: Where were you for the last 3 years….Hiding or something? Haven’t you heard of Game of Thrones???

  • all

    how sounds weird.

  • pinkydoo

    Wow. He must be pretty intense. He really sounds amazing. I loved just reading that little bit about the fan and the guy on the motorcycle. I wish he would go on the Actor’s Studio for an interview. I bet it would be riveting.


    No.3; What is the best thing about getting a smoker from a midget?.. You have some place to set your drink.

  • lo

    I found myself having a crush on him and realized it is the first dwarf Ive found attractive. He really is handsome and his mannerisms and personality just make him more attractive.
