Kit Harington: I was 'wrong' to say Hollywood men face sexism


Two of the most recent additions to this antiselfie squad are Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, who nearly certainly get stopped all the time when they're out and about, considering they've both appeared in one of the biggest shows on TV and also recently announced their engagement.

"I think there is a double standard", the English actor said at the time. There's definitely a sexism in our industry that happens towards women, and there is towards men as well.

He made the clarification that he should have said, "being objectified".

However, one year on, Kit has finally issued an apology for his careless remark. They say, if I ever p**s them off too much, they'll release it on YouTube. "I think, no-one really cares about [Game of Thrones] more than us". "If I felt I was being employed just for my looks, I'd stop acting".

Look, I do think men can get objectified, . Has that made me feel uncomfortable in the past? Yes. Do I think my position is the same as a woman's in society? No. "Every now and then, they send me a screen grab, just as a threat", noted Harington.

Here's hoping Kit's apology will inspire others to examine their own words and actions, and gain a better understanding of how sexism impacts the lives of women on a daily basis. "I'll try it for one take, anyway".

He explained, 'you just have to, otherwise you start feeling like a mannequin. "It feels like being Bieber or something", he said.

While it may be an entire two years that we have to wait until the next season of Game of Thrones, the buzz and hype around the world's most popular show is still very much alive.

"I was wrong there, though". Maybe the most special year was the first. We weren't being recognised in the street, we didn't know what we were doing, we were having a great time'.
