Dormer laughed, Entertainment Weekly reported, and said that may have happened because of her own GoT dialogue request:
She's so beautiful! How could anyone really compare her to a pig? The Denise comparisons were probably meant to be compliments about their striking wide-set eyes and somewhat similar hair. But it just goes to show that mean people will target anyone for any perceived flaw even if their target is actually the flawless queen of Westeros.
There's a scene in Season 3 where I'm walking on all the cliffs with Sansa, and I'm telling her how I was teased as a young girl for my nose. I asked in a dinner with [showrunners] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss], 'Please, can you put in a line about a pig nose? I was bullied at school, I used to get told I had pig nostrils. I said for my own demons, it would be sticking two middle fingers up to the bullies of my childhood. If you watch the DVDs, you'll see me oinking backstage. When I saw that Kermit had a new girlfriend, I thought I might be responsible for that. I brought up the pig subject myself."
