Peter Dinklage and a bevy of beauties (Playboy)
Sorry, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Peter Dinklage has bigger thrones to capture than yours.
At least according to the "Game of Thrones" actor, who opens up in an hilarious new interview for Playboy about his career, Hollywood peers, and aspirations. Like his 2012 Golden Globe win for best supporting actor, where he claimed the prize for his turn as Tyrion Lannister on the cult HBO series.

While the actor didn't lose any sleep over it, his close pals were apparently mortified.
"All I saw was a sea of people I needed to get through," Dinklage explains. "Friends don't care about issues like dwarf tossing. They only care about 'Dude, you dissed Brangelina.'"
Brad and Angie may have to wait for a second shot, but a different A-lister did get a little love from Dinklage during his interview: Beyoncé.
Inspired by Bey's line of signature scents and how it allows her to "make a mint," he's thinking "this cologne could be my ticket to fortune."
"I have a friend -- not a dwarf -- who’s an alchemist of sorts," he shares. “He concocted a men’s cologne ... he gave me a bottle as a gift. I was thinking, we should totally put this on the market."
You have our blessing, Pete, but only if your marketing campaign resembles the amazing Playboy shot above -- which omg! is happy to offer a first look at.
Photographed while lounging amongst a bevy of beauties, the mag naturally had to ask Dinklage about his burgeoning status as a sex symbol.
"They'll say, 'Oh, he's sexy,' but women still go for guys who are 6'2," he concludes. "It's nice that people are thinking outside the box, but I don't believe any of it for a minute."
