In a pre-recorded parody of the reality program Naked & Afraid Celebrity Edition, Dinklage was required to survive naked in the wild for 21 days alongside SNL cast member Leslie Jones.

While the actor who plays the charismatic Tyrion Lannister on the hit TV series is used to being surrounded by nudity, he was shy to strip down to the buff in front of the confident Jones.

Peter Dinklage wasn't prepared for his Naked & Afraid partner.

"I think I agreed to do the show because I like to test my limits, challenge myself. I am a little nervous when do we get naked," Dinklage says before Jones exits from an Uber baring all.

"Whoa! The cool breeze feel good on my ass, man!" she exclaimed.

It doesn't take long for tensions to surface as the pair come to know each others annoying habits.

"Peter," she said. "Is a whiny bitch. Did you know he's a vegetarian? All we've been eating is leaves! And not once, not once did he compliment my body. It's like, 'You don't want this?"' Jones vented in a one-on-one interview with the camera.

Dinklage is also forced to uncomfortably spoon with Jones for "body warmth.

"She is a real horn-dog... How is there not an open sexual harassment case against her," Dinklage said.

The GoT actor isn't new to the sketch comedy, having previously played his alcohol-loving alter ego Peter Drunkage on the show.
