Game of Thrones star Lena Headey recently shared a hack of how to eat a pineapple and it has people amazed — instead of trying to slice or cube the pineapple, people have realised they can peel the pineapple segments away one at a time.

This hack has been hacking off some Twitter users as not everyone who has tried it has been successful. Those who did get it right say the fruit has to be ripe and the stem end removed in order for the trick to work, although several added that it's messier and stickier than eating a pineapple the regular "wrong" way.
