Although the Internet would like to think so, Peter Dinklage tells Playboy he isn't getting nearly as ... far with the ladies, let's say, as has been suggested.
In the magazine's new issue, the "Game of Thrones" star plays 20 questions, one of which refers to a YouTube video that suggests playing Tyrion Lannister on the HBO series has made Dinklage pretty promiscuous.
Dinklage, who's married with a baby girl, responded with his trademark wit:
"It depends ... Is it a metaphor, like for gardening? Because if that's the case, then yes, I've been doing a lot of gardening lately. If they mean sex, they might be getting me confused with somebody else."
And when Playboy pointed out that he's considered a "DwILF," Dinklage playfully demurred there as well.
"DwILF, as in Dwarf I'd Like to [you can fill in the blank]? That's very clever," the 43-year-old said. "Honestly, I think there's an irony in all of this. I take it with a grain of salt. They'll say, 'Oh, he's sexy,' but women still go for guys who are 6'2. It's nice that people are thinking outside the box, but I don't believe any of it for a minute."
