Game of Thrones
hunk actor Kit Harington would kindly like you to stop calling him a hunk, okurr?
According to Page Six, Harington–who stars as Jon Snow on the HBO mega-hit–has had enough of his thirsty fans seeing him only as a pumped up piece of meat.
“To always be put on a pedestal as a hunk is slightly demeaning,” explains Harington, “It really is and it’s in the same way as it is for women. When an actor is seen only for her physical beauty, it can be quite offensive.”
He continued: "It’s not just men that can be inappropriate sexually; women can be as well. I’m in a successful TV show in a kind of leading man way and it can sometimes feel like your art is being put to one side for your sex appeal. And I don’t like that.”
“In this position you get asked a lot, ‘Do you like being a heartthrob? Do you like being a hunk?’ Well, my answer is, ‘That’s not what I got into it for.”
We're just going to leave this right here...
