Earlier this year, Kit Harington received backlash after he stated it was ‘demeaning’ to be called a hunk. Life must be hard to be so good looking and be seen as a sexual object constantly… NOT!!! I’d like to have that burden in life 😉
The 28-year-old Game of Thrones actor stands by his comments and defends them in an interview with OUT Magazine. Check out his thoughts below, along with more pics snapped by Nino Munoz. I don’t want to offend him, but he looks fantastic in the editorial, even with clothes on.
On Backlash He Received For Saying It Was ‘Demeaning’ To Be Referred To As A Hunk
“I found it unfair, really, some of the stuff I read [in response]. I was making a point, which was that I think young men do get objectified, do get sexualized unnecessarily. As a person who is definitely in that category, as a young leading man in this world, I feel I have a unique voice to talk about that. I was making a point to sort of say, ‘It just needs to be highlighted.’ With every photo shoot I ever go to, I’m told to take off my shirt, and I don’t.”
On Sexuality On Game Of Thrones
“It’s not just gay and straight. We’ve got bisexual characters as well, which is rarely done on TV. I like the fact that we deal with a broad spectrum of sexuality.”
On The Media
“I’m slowly getting to be more comfortable with them, but I find them terrifying. They scare the fucking living shit out of me.”
