Ugh, must be sooooo difficult being YOU, you dumb actor.
Kit Harington spent much of 2015 complaining loudly about how hard it is to be beautiful and ripped, so I’m already like, okay, we get it. But for him to bring it up again is like, COME ON dude. Now you’re belaboring an already weak point. In a new interview in The Sunday Times, Kit returns to his favorite subject: how hard it is to be ripped and sexy and sexy. Here’s a snip:
“I think there is a double standard. You can’t pick and choose when you get it. If you said to a girl, ‘Do you like being called a babe?’ and she said, ‘No, not really,’ she’d be absolutely right.”
“I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair or a set of looks. 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. At some points during photoshoots when I’m asked to strip down, I felt that.”
Harington even proclaimed he would leave acting if “I felt I was being employed just for my looks.”
While I think there’s some legitimacy in this (who wants to think they’re successful because of they way they look?) he needs to stop yammering about it, because some people (cough, WOMEN) have it way, way worse. While he acknowledges this, he’s basically elevating his complaint about being sexy to an equal level as the systemic sexism that all women face on a daily basis. And that’s just arrogance.
Kit, pump the breaks on this shizzz, it’s annoying.
