Kit Harington: ‘Men face sexism in Hollywood, too’

HaringtonET

KIT HARINGTON is uncomfortable when he is asked to strip down for magazine photoshoots because he wants to be known for his acting instead of his looks.

The “Game of Thrones” star feels there is a double standard when it comes sexism in acting and he wants it to be acknowledged.

“I don’t want to seem ungrateful – I’m lucky,” he told Britain’s The Sunday Times Magazine. “But I can’t say that I like a lot of attention a lot of the time. You can’t pick and choose when you get it. I think there is a double standard. If you said to a girl, ‘Do you like being called a babe?’ and she said, ‘No, not really,’ she’d be absolutely right.”

Kit, who is known for his long, curly hair, recognizes that his looks may have helped him land acting jobs, but he would prefer for fans to focus on his talents onscreen.

“I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair or a set of looks,” he said. “It’s demeaning. Yes, in some ways you could argue I’ve been employed for a look I have. But there’s a sexism that happens towards men. There’s definitely a sexism in our industry that happens towards women, and there is towards men as well. At some points during photoshoots when I’m asked to strip down, I felt that. If I felt I was being employed just for my looks, I’d stop acting.”

While Kit is not fond of some of the attention he has received, he is happy to stay put on the highly-popular fantasy series, in which he portrays Jon Snow, the former Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.

He added, “There have been frustrations that it does take six months of the actor’s year, but I’ve never wanted ‘Thrones’ to end. It’s been a large and important part of my twenties.”

Jon Snow appeared to be killed off at the end of “Game of Thrones” season five last year, leaving fans shocked by the cliffhanger. However, the character was resurrected in the premiere of season six, which aired in the U.S. and U.K. last month.
