LOS ANGELES: Actress Emilia Clarke has a "rule" not to read what people post about her as she doesn't need to see the negative comments, and knows positive remarks will get back to her eventually.

"I never look at the internet. I have a rule: I just don't Google myself. I'm on social media but I don't look at the stuff that other people tag me in because it messes me up. If you hate me, I don't need to know," Clarke told Event magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

She added: "I can barely even look at myself on the screen, so I keep a very big distance from it, and if anyone ever says anything really lovely, or something wonderful happens, someone will tell me. And then if it's something bad, my mum will probably tell me..."

The 30-year-old actress was left devastated when her dad died of cancer last year and she says her tragic loss made her "re-evaluate" who she really is and vowed to be strong in her decision making.

"The world felt like a scarier place once my dad wasn't in it. It (his death) threw me off balance and made me re-evaluate who I am. And it was in that re-evaluation that I was like, 'I'm a f***ing woman, and there aren't very many of us performing in the environment that I'm performing in. 

"I need to be incredibly sure of the ground on which I'm standing, and I need to take ownership of the choices I'm making."
