‘Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington does not like being called “a hunk”. The 28-year-old actor gained popularity with his brooding good looks as Jon Snow on the fantasy show but feels the term is limiting, reported New York Post.

“To always be put on a pedestal as a hunk is slightly demeaning,” said Harington. “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.”

“Well, it’s not just men that can be inappropriate sexually; women can be as well. I’m in a successful TV show in a kind of leading man way and it can sometimes feel like your art is being put to one side for your sex appeal. And I don’t like that.” The actor said he often gets asked whether he likes being a heartthrob and hunk but he did not get into acting for that.
