According to him:
“To always be put on a pedestal as a hunk is slightly demeaning,” he revealed. “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.”
Recently in an interview he talked about sexism that happens towards men. And has this to say.
“I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair or a set of looks,” Harington told The Sunday Times. “It’s demeaning. Yes, in some ways you could argue I’ve been employed for a look I have. But there’s a sexism that happens towards men.”
“There’s definitely a sexism in our industry that happens towards women, and there is towards men as well,” he continued. “At some points during photoshoots when I’m asked to strip down, I felt that.”
