'Game of Thrones' Star Kit Harington Knows You Sexualize Him and He's Still Not Okay With It

Though Kit Harington recognizes the homoeroticism running through the veins of the men of the Night’s Watch, the Game of Thrones actor still insists that he’s uncomfortable with being thought of as a sex symbol. Earlier this year Harington went public with the fact that he felt as if it was “demeaning” that people paid so much attention to his body, while not necessarily respecting his talent as an actor. The public, while somewhat sympathetic to his discomfort, swiftly turned the actor’s feelings into something of a mild internet joke.

“I found it unfair, really, some of the stuff I read,” he explained, doubling down on his assertion that the attention was problematic. “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.”

Kit Harington on Getting Nude for 'Game of Thrones': 'It's Only Right'


Last week we reported that Game of Thrones actress Sibel Kekilli was requesting that the show up the amount of male nudity, and Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, seems game according to a new GQ cover story.

Says Harington to the mag: “It’s only right, if you’re going to make a show where nudity and sex is a large part of it, that you be a part of that.” Though as far as doing a full frontal, Harington adds, "It would have to be f--king well deserved."

Harington also adds that he used a butt double last season in the scene in which he jumped nude into a rock pool, but only because he had an injury at the time: “When it came down to it I had a broken ankle, so the only time you saw my ass, it wasn’t my ass.”

While none the shots from Harington's GQ shoot feature more clothing than skin, we've posted his sexiest shirtless shots from elsewhere, AFTER THE JUMP...

Kit Harington Shares The Secret Of His Abs

Kit Harington Pompeii

In stark contrast to the heavy coats and furs he wears as Jon Snow in HBO's Game of Thrones series, Kit Harington doffs the winter wear in exchange for a loincloth and arm guard for his role in Pompeii and accompanies the outfit with the perfect accessory of a shredded six pack. In his interview with Vanity Fair, Harington was generous enough to share the secret to his stomach, and it turns out it's a simple 4-part process. All that's required is a daily regimen of:

  • An hour of lifting weights
  • An hour of cardio
  • Two hours of weapons training
  • An 1,800 calorie diet

Easy! As an added bonus, Harington's weapons training has improved his fighting performance on the set of Game of Thrones as well, so much so that director Neil Marshall called Pompeii director Paul W.S. Anderson to thank him personally.

We thank you too, Neil. 

'Game of Thrones' Actor Kit Harington Hits the Gay Bar for a Fun Night Out


Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington was asked by Vanity Fair about recent photos that hit the web of castmate Peter Dinklage hula-hooping in a gay bar.

“That sounds like Peter and Lena [Headley]!” Harington laughed. “That doesn’t happen often, but there’s a great gay club in Belfast that we go to sometimes called the Kremlin, which is a fun night out.”

Asked what kind of trouble the Game of Thrones cast gets into, Harington demurred. “I can never usually remember,” he said, “but it’s always fun.”
