Kit Harington Thinks Being Called a Hunk Constantly is “Slightly Demeaning”

Kit Harington says the struggle is real. He's not okay with you constantly calling him a hunk.

T he ‘Game of Thrones’ actor is clearly quite hot (most of the audience will agree he’s probably the best of the bunch when it comes to the guys on the show) and we all know he didn’t exactly land the role because he deserves an Oscar more than Leonardo DiCaprio – but Kit says he is tired of the eye candy label. Yep, apparently it gets boring to be called a hunk constantly. Kit even says that women can be inappropriately sexual towards him:

“To always be put on a pedestal as a hunk is slightly demeaning. 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. 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.”

Kit is frustrated that no one cares about his acting skills, when really he should be happy no one has noticed him as an actor (because even if he thinks it’s “art”, he isn’t exactly noteworthy). He then tried to backtrack a bit and says he’s just going to shut up for a while:

“I’ve kind of decided I’m going to be a good little hunk and shut up…Yeah, I did get into trouble for that. It’s one of those–you say something and then didn’t realize people would jump on it.”
