Kit Harington Says He Misused the Word 'Sexism' in Former Interview

Kit Harington once opened up about feeling objectified by the media, but he mistakenly said “there’s a sexism that happens towards men.” Now, he’s speaking out to clarify his former comments.

The 30-year-old actor made the comment during an interview with The Sunday Times Magazine back in May 2016.

“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,” he said.

Over a year later, Kit admits, “I was wrong there, though.”

“Sexism against men is not something I should have really said. I think what I meant was, being objectified. At that time, I did feel objectified, and now I’ve learned how to control that,” he told The Guardian. “Look, I do think men can get objectified. I do feel I have been objectified in the past, sexually as well, in pieces that have been written about me. 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. They’re very different things, and I should have separated them. I was wrong.”

Kit, who plays Jon Snow, revealed that he and his co-stars finished reading the last season eight script last week in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

“We had the read-through last week in fact, so I know everything now,” Kit said, referencing the fan-favorite line “You know nothing, Jon Snow.”

“I cried at the end,” he continued. “You have to remember that eight years of it no one really cares about it more than us. I get a bit weepy thinking about it. It’s going to be a strange year saying goodbye to everyone and having last scenes with this person and that person.”

Kit‘s new series Gunpowder premieres on BBC One on Saturday night.

Kit Harington's Proposal to Rose Leslie Didn't Go as Planned

Kit Harington is engaged to his longtime love and Game of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie, but his proposal didn’t go exactly as he planned on doing it.

The 30-year-old actor opened up about his engagement during an upcoming episode of the UK’s Jonathan Ross Show.

“I did have some plans to do it, I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff, but we were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and I blew my load early,” he said.

Kit then realized what he said and added, “Sorry that’s a really bad expression! What I meant to say was, I popped my question a bit early.”

While Kit doesn’t want the wedding to have a Game of Thrones theme, he expects a lot of the cast and crew to be there.

“I rang [the producer] up and I said, ‘I’m getting married and it’s your fault actually.’ I was like, ‘You need to factor in a Game of Thrones wedding by the way.’ They [the cast] have all got to be there, so the whole thing has got to shut down,” he said.
