Kit Harington has heard your shade about his complaints about his hunk status. The “Game of Thrones” star addressed the backlash to his comments during an interview on “Good Morning America,” and is ready to stop talking about it.
He continued, “Well, 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.'”
Beyond starring on “Game of Thrones,” Harington also got leading roles in movies like “Pompeii,” “The Testament of Youth” and “Spooks: The Greater Good,” and is the face of Jimmy Choo shoes’ spring/summer 2015 campaign.
