And that's exactly what happened in his latest interview for The Sunday Times.

Given that sexism is definitely a problem in this day and age, the Game of Thrones star took the chance to tell everyone that although women face it pretty much on a daily basis in television, music and film making, men have to deal with it too.

To quote Kit, "there is a double standard. If you said to a girl, 'Do you like being called a babe?' and she said, 'No, not really,’ she’d be absolutely right.”

He then went on to say that “at some points during photo shoots when I’m asked to strip down, I felt that [the sexism]. If I felt I was being employed just for my looks, I’d stop acting.”

Granted, Harrington is very much aware of the fact that he's one handsome looking man with a lot of fans who are simply eager to see him bare chested on a Men's Health cover. But he is also sure that there's a lot more to him than his looks.

“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."

And what can we say? He's right. Everybody seems to think that life as a good-looking young actor like is a piece of cake, and it definitely has its perks. However, when you reach a certain level - just like Kit did with his roles - you start to wish that people appreciated you for your acting skills and ability to convey certain emotions too, and not only for your abs and sassy hair.

On a lighter note, maybe you'd like to know that this is not the only thing Harrington's talked about in his interview. His love story with former co-star Rose Leslie was also addressed, and re-reading this part made us tear up with joy a little bit.
