On Game of Thrones, Lena Headey’s Cersei Lannister isn’t just the queen of Westeros, she’s the queen of withering put-downs. Her ability to dismiss any and all opponents with cold insults is part of what makes the show so entertaining. When Headey appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night, he put her iconic delivery to the test by having Headey read insults from TV’s other biggest show about politics and sexuality: The Bachelor.

Goblet of wine in hand — come on, it’s Game of Thrones meets The Bachelor after all — Headey made lines like, “I’m gonna punch her in the face, like seriously,” and, “I think her boobs are fake, but it’s okay, like you can tell they’re fake,” seem like they were written by George R. R. Martin himself.

Watch Headey take on The Bachelor below, and check out EW’s full recap of the show here.
