Game of Thrones Star Kit Harington on Being Objectified: “I Enjoy It”
Jon Snow may know nothing, but the actor who plays him, Kit Harington, knows a thing or two about having ladies fawn over him. As one of the breakout stars of Game of Thrones, this charming 27-year-old has become a certified Hollywood hottie. So how does he feel about all the attention that comes with it? Yeah, he's not bothered.
"I think men are objectified more than the press makes clear," Kit told ShortListwhen asked about the female attention that comes along with being one of Hollywood's rising hunks. That said, it "doesn't bother" him. In fact, he enjoys it!
"I enjoy the attention. I’m an actor — of course I do!" he admits. "But I feel like I’m letting female fans down when I meet them. They fancy the character."
We're not sure about that. After seeing how hot Kit looks in these Jimmy Choo ads, we have a hard time imagining anyone being disappointed when they meet him in real life!
Kit also insists that he didn't set out to get famous. "The fame thing is not something I chase," he explained. "The show is famous, not me, so I deal with it in that way."
He may have gotten famous for Game of Thrones, but with his good looks and talent, we have a feeling Kit isn't going anywhere after the show ends. We wouldn't have it any other way.
