Kit Harington doesn’t feel beautiful, is driven ‘insane’ by constant hair queries

wenn22436957

Time for another episode of “Celebitchy Presents: Kit Harington Says Words.” Because our first two episodes this week were shockingly popular. Yes, I realize that you nerds are just using these Harington stories as Open Posts to discuss Game of Thrones. I’m fine with that because I’m totally obsessed too (HODOR). I’m including some photos of Kit, out and about in London over the past few days. A quick note about his style: he’s TOTALLY wearing skinny jeans. His jeans are skinnier and tighter and more jegging-y than Anne Hathaway’s husband’s jeans.

Kit’s been doing a lot of press this week, only he wasn’t supposed to be promoting GoT. I only just realized that. He’s promoting his new film The Spooks: The Greater Good. He just happens to get a ton of GoT questions wherever he goes. Questions about… his hair. And whether he thinks he’s pretty.

Kit Harington is “driven insane” by people asking about his hair. The Games of Thrones hunk can’t stand being questioned about his dark luscious locks and finds it distracting when people obsess over his looks.

When asked what his least favourite question to be asked is, he told DJ Nick Grimshaw on UK station BBC Radio 1: “There is always someone who wants to ask me about my hair and it just drives me insane. It’s hair, it’s just hair. I’m just amazed by it, it follows me everywhere.”

The radio presenter asked if the actor had told his publicist to send out a message that interviewers were not to ask about his hair. To which Kit replied: “Oh we have.”

It’s not just his hair that gets Kit’s fans in a frenzy.

The Spooks: The Greater Good star said: “When people focus too much on people’s looks or appearance for a role, it can sometimes feel like that is all that’s being focused on. Sometimes you want to try and get away from that.”

Kit, 28, did say he doesn’t get offended when someone says he is gorgeous, in fact he thinks it’s “lovely”. But he added: “It can distract at times … I don’t consider myself that beautiful.”

[From Channel 24]

Kit has complained about the focus on his looks before, even going so far as to say that it’s “demeaning” when people put him on a “pedestal” for being a “hunk.” Of course, after that, Kit had to take it back and say “I’ve kind of decided I’m going to be a good little hunk and shut up.” To be fair to him, I think there’s a lot of focus on his looks and his hair and all that. But I do think he should just deal with it because… for goodness sake, it’s the exact same thing as an actress whining about being too beautiful to get good roles. And to be fair to us, he was the one who spent the Game of Thrones promotional tour for the first season talking about his hair and how he doesn’t wash it when he plays Jon Snow. Of course we’re going to ask him about it! PS… Lena Headey constantly teases him about his hair too.

    Lenas the best. I ship her with Pedro Pascal so bad!

  2. Abbott says:

    HODOOOOOOORRRRR!

    Jon Snow’s hair makes me want to fly into the sun.

    • Kiddo says:

      Jon Snow talking about everyone talking about Jon Snow’s hair, makes me want to set him up with Jen Aniston.

      ETA: The dude has that jacket in every color.

      • Kitten says:

        Looks like he got the Members Only variety pack.

      • Kiddo says:

        HAHAHA, Gramps gives approval from his closet. Are these things back in style?

      • Abbott says:

        I just noticed that. I thought the photos were all from the same day.

      • Bridget says:

        How can you guys even notice anything past those painted on jeans?

        Coincidentally, I saw a man in a very similar pair yesterday while I was on my run, but he was on an Ellipti-Go (it’s a cross between an elliptical machine and a bike, so you can take it outside) and if I didnt have an issue with men in skinny jeans before, I certainly do now.

      • mia girl says:

        I’m thinking he was able to buy more than one jacket because they are usually 40% cheaper in the boys department.

      • Kiddo says:

        They are noticed and they are horrible, but I have ranted one too many times about skinny jeans in general. I hate them.

      • Abbott says:

        mia girl, good point. There must have been a sale at Baby Gap.

      • mimif says:

        Ellipti-go? Riding the Stairway To Nowhere? HODOR!

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        A client of my husband’s stopped by our house and when he emerged from his car, he was wearing the teeny tiniest skinny jeans in red. I accidentally laughed, but I (hope) I turned it into a surprised and pleased to see you laugh…like HA! Oh, hi there, what a lovely surprise…

      • Size Does Matter says:

        @GNAT – is your husband’s client Blaine from Glee? Otherwise red skinny jeans are NO BUENO.

      • Bridget says:

        Or maybe he’s Howard Wolowitz.

  3. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Tiny man smoking. Gross. “I don’t consider myself THAT beautiful.” Me neither, Kittycat.

    • Kitten says:

      Could never date a guy that can fit into my jeans.

      I’m shallow but I like feeling smaller than.

      • mimif says:

        Hence the breakup, smaller than shamer. ;)

      • Kitten says:

        I just caught my cat excitedly playing with a tampon so I’m in no position to judge anyone.

        EDIT: Bastard found it again after I hid it and pulled the effin wrapper off. I’m going back to bed…

      • mimif says:

        Are you having another mushroom/snow day, Kitten?

      • Kitten says:

        No I just took the day off to sit in Boston traffic all day. I mean, to run errands.

        I bet traffic would have been more fun if I was ‘shrooming though.

    • jugstorecowboy says:

      I did find him dirty-hot, but can’t unsee the cigarette. Now he’s just gross.

    • Franca says:

      Men shouldn’t wear skinny jeans, they can make them sterile if worn too often.
      I’m not too fussed about the smoking, tho.

    KIt Harrington’s inability to smile is driving me insane. HODOR!

    • mimif says:

      What the hell is happening here with all these superficial ew he’s smoking jeggings hair baby gap bullshit? We need to discuss Euron and the true nature of the Ironborn! PAOLA SHOW YOURSELF.

      • Bridget says:

        GRRM has such a knack for naming things. Euron’s ship “Silence” – it just sounds ominous.

      • Abbott says:

        Euron has the dragon horn, yes?

        ETA: have you watched Funny or Die’s recaps ‘Gay of Thrones?’ It’s fantastic.

      • mimif says:

        No! Must watch immediately.
        I think Euron has the Dragonbinder (don’t get me started on that one) and that the dragon egg he so carelessly tossed overboard is really in possession of the Faceless Men. Oh, Bridget! That’s when the Others started moving south, when all this magic/dragons stuff happened.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        There’s Euron and Valon? Right? Valon is Iron King and Euron was dispatched to Dany? I can’t keep the Ironborn straight.

      • Bridget says:

        Euron, Balon, and Victarion. Balon was the king (and Theon’s father) who died. Victarion is the one who serves the Drowned God. Euron is the one who’s bad news who’s out for Dany’s dragons.

      • Abbott says:

        Or so you believe, mimif. I like the Eddard’s sister’s burial theory, mostly because I’m too dumb to follow all of the dragon egg theories.

      • mimif says:

        I don’t even know what I believe anymore, Abot, I’m just regurgitating. I’m going to have to read the books all over again, are you in? Or wait…did you ever finish Breaking Bad?

      • Abbott says:

        Mimi here’s an old episode with Theon as guest.

      • mimif says:

        Where where link link!

      • Abbott says:

        @mimif, sorry. forgot to paste the link:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2G6ZtAEmd8

      • mimif says:

        That was awesome, his hair!! I want more. And you and Theon are so cute together.

      • paola says:

        AHAHAH! Kaiser is FINALLY giving us some credit fro stealing her thunder in the last posts of GoT and not only… We have her blessing!
        So.. WTF is kit wearing? Those trousers are tight. I don’t want to know what happens in the crotch area.. just like his brother Robb/Crotcherella.

        mimif I did read that theory about the weirwoods.
        Your husband is insane. He needs a life!!
        That image of weirwoods roots as a brain across westeros gives me the shudders!

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Aeron Greyjoy serves the drownded God. Euron won the Kings moot and gave the dragon’s horn to Victarion with the order to bring Dany back to him

      • Bridget says:

        Crap I am so off on this! Again, Lilac has clearly read the last book way better than I did.

        And circling back, I wonder if the whole Euron-dragonbinder angle is going to be another misdirection. He added so much new story in the last book, I’m kind of unexcited to see it potentially sprout off in new angles. Though I’d love more Asha.

      • Abbott says:

        Ya’ll have lost me. I downloaded the first book the other day. Should be finished by 2018. I hope.

      • mimif says:

        Lilac is part Vulcan too.

      • Bridget says:

        Clearly the good part.

      • Abbott says:

        mimif, I haven’t finished Breaking Bad. I CAN’T DO EVERYTHING! I’M NOT KANYE WEST!

      • paola says:

        YOU WHAT ABBOTT??

        Breaking bad is the best show on planet Earth. I miss it and wish I could watch it again for the first time.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Someone talk this thru with me. What do we think it means in terms of ultimate book importance for characters not included in the show?

      • paola says:

        @Size
        I think the ending will be the same in the books and in the tv show.
        I don’t know why they’re not including Arianne Martell and changing Sansa’s storyline so much but I’m sure it’ll all make sense in a few episodes.

      • mimif says:

        @Abot, you get a pass until this season’s GoT is over, then I expect you to go back to the class assignment I gave you like TWO MONTHS AGO.

        @Size, I think Walter Whiteys was an integral part of the books, no idea why they chose not to include him in the TV series.

        @paola, I CAN’T WAIT FOR SUNDAY. The End.

      • Bridget says:

        Paola, I’ve thought about that. I think it’s expediency – Arianne was oddly superfluous as a POV character. It was really just more of a chance to bring the readers to Dorne and set up the conflict there, which the show is doing more with Ellaria and the Sand Snakes.

        But with Sansa, I think we can infer that the end game has been to eventually maneuver her back to being the LAdy of Winterfell, but the Harry the Heir stuff was likely too much of a tangent. THOUGH I’m also not up to date on Dark Sansa.

      • paola says:

        Was she though? I loved Arianne.
        I guess you’re right.. but the Sand Snakes were not that important in the book.. and Ellaria Sand was never looking for revenge.
        I am looking forward to seeing where this is going. It is interesting.
        Plus Nymeria is played by an italian actress
        * proudly drinks a shot of Casa Friendzone to celebrate fellow citizen across the pond*

        @mimif i can’t wait to see your reaction to a couple of things on sunday’s episode.

      • Bridget says:

        Lots of words to say that I think we’re seeing the work around and that it’ll be generally-ish the same.

        My prediction (okay, hope): GRRM is going to put Jon’s parentage in the next book, but they’ll try to hold it off until the final season of the show so there will at least be a semblance of a chance that he gets to make the big reveal himself.

        ETA: I liked the Arianne character, but she just didnt move the story along very much. We could have completely replaced it with one phrase: Dorne hasn’t forgiven Elia’s murder.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        I am assuming the whole Ironborn angle may be cut from TV, along with (fake) Aegon, Arianne, and the Martell who tries to marry Dany. And the ending will be the same because other characters will pick up action where necessary.

        I was looking forward to Victarion with the burned arm and dragonhorn. He seemed kind of hot in the book.

      • paola says:

        Size, do you think Danaerys will marry Hizdahr zo Loraq or maybe they’ll keep Daario Naharis as her love interest and that’ll be about it?

        Yes, I don’t think the Ironborn angle will be taken on screen.. as well as Aegon (not enough time.. ten episodes of 60 minutes each. not enough!! Not enoughhhhhhhhh *whiny voice*)

        All i live for is for Arya to meet Jon Snow once again. That’s all I want.
        Sansa can die, I don’t care for her. She’s been so dumb for so long that she annoys me to no end. I just hope she’ll grow some balls and find a way to get rid of Ramsay psycho killer Bolton.

      • paola says:

        @Bridget

        I’m sure Jon’s parentage will be the last thing in the story to come out. GRRM will tease the readers/watchers until the very end to keep people interested in the story. He is no stupid.

      • mimif says:

        You are all misinformed. GRRM already confirmed that a few of the fans correctly surmised the ending. Jon marries Dany and freezes her dragon’s blood with his Icy Sausage, therefore protecting the realm from a certain fiery death. Satisfied, the Others discover Breaking Bad, start binge watching it and are never seen again. Then Hodor (HODOR!) quits Hodoring, wakes up in the hospital from a coma and realizes it was all a dream.
        FIN

        @paola, did you see this pic I found of Jorah McChappylips as a baby?

      • Bridget says:

        @Paola: it would be, if the series hadn’t overtaken the books. Now he risks having it revealed on the show instead of in the book.

      • paola says:

        Bridget you’re right. He has to reveal it in the books first.

        mimif the Ice Sausage plan sounds incredibly interesting. If you can’t find me on here, in the months to come, don’t look for me on IG.
        I’ll be in the North watching Breaking Bad with the White Walkers.
        I’ll be the one under the duvet stuffing my face with hot chocolate and pain au chocolat.

        Yes I did see it. Sorry I didn’t reply because I was on my way to work. And my boss doesn’t have any sense of humor. All he sees are deadlines.

      • mimif says:

        It’s entirely possible GRRM will let the series finish the books. Which would totally suck, but I just can’t him seeing him pull off two books in 2 years when it took him 25728838 years to write the first 5.
        @paola, your boss obviously needs to take the Black.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        We are going to lose a ton of book characters, but I also think some long-lost folks are going to have to reappear to fill in some historical gaps. Howland Reed, Benjen Stark, Tyrion’s missing uncle.

        And thanks, @Mimif. The crackpot weirwood theory has me ready to wrap my whole house in tinfoil. A tree on the corner that I’ve thought was an innocent birch is looking malevolent and suspicious now.

      • paola says:

        Did I mention that I am re watching GoT from season 1?
        Man I miss those days where Robert baratheon used to put Cersei in her place.
        ‘Shut up woman!’
        *giggle giggle*

      • Size Does Matter says:

        @Paola – I think (hope) she will reopen the pits to appease the Harpies and skip the Hizdar wedding. Has Hizdar been on the show? The closest I can think of is that guy who, every time he comes on, I think WHAT IS LIONEL RICHIE DOING IN MEREEN?

      • paola says:

        AHAHAH! LIONEL RICHIE!!
        My god so true. I kept thinking who that guy reminded me of and now you revealed it to me!!

        No Hizdahr zo Loraq is not in the show, at least until now.
        Did you watch the latest episode? n.3?

      • Size Does Matter says:

        I have watched everything through season 5 episode 3 and read the five books. Is Winds of Winter coming out this year? I didn’t start reading till after the HBO series started. Could you imagine waiting around for the books for 17 years?!?

        Do you think the Myrcella story will match the books, just with the “help” of a different set of people? And isn’t a main character supposed to die this season? Who?!?

      • Bridget says:

        mimif, there is pretty much no chance at all that GRRM will finish the books before the TV series is done, even if HBO magically finagles an 8th season out of Benioff and Weiss. That was a really hard one for GRRM, too – he was convinced that they could just take a break while he finished the books, or have each book be a couple of seasons. But they have so many child actors on the show and it really can’t go on indefinitely.

        Re: Hizdar. What’s the point? She can marry him or not, but it’s not like the book is going to randomly decide to leave her in Mereen with a new husband and her dragons. UGH at these random side adventures.

      • paola says:

        I know fore sure that Tyrion is not dying in this season. I saw an interview where peter Dinklage was asked ‘What would you like to ask GRRM about your character?’
        And he said they’re starting to shoot season 6 and he wanted to know if Tyrion dies.
        Peter Dinklage then realised he just gave away a huge spoiler.

        I’m fearing for Sansa’s life.

      • mimif says:

        WOW isn’t supposed to be released until (wait for it) TWO THOUSAND SEVENTEEN. And is Tyrion gonna get Greyscale or what. Somebody answer me!
        ETA: @Bridget, GRRM needs to quit Hodoring. You can’t just “take a break” from a freaking wildly popular TV show with (as you mentioned) child actors. I get that he wants to have a life and stuff, but um HELLO, put us out if our misery for crying out loud. Now the book readers are gonna be all, but that didn’t happen on the show!!

      • paola says:

        mimif i’m pretty sure it’ll be Jorah from house of Friendzone to get greyscale.

      • Bridget says:

        mimif, I KNOW. It’s absurd. I will never understand how GRRM got into bed with HBO and didn’t immeditately bust his butt to finish the series. Judging from how poorly edited those last two books were, I’m guessing that people on team GRRM stopped telling him ‘no’ a long time ago.

        I thought we already knew Tyrion had greyscale, as did Connington? And while I find fake Aegon not particularly compelling, I’d actually like to know a bit more about Connington.

      • mimif says:

        For reals, paola? Shit. He looks like he already has it. I better read (listen to) book 5 again, since I’m blind from House CB’s crash courses in being a GoT nerd. Doesn’t Jon Connington have it, or did we discuss this already?
        I need a shot of Casa Friendzone immediately.

      • paola says:

        I was talking about the tv show. I think Jorah will get greyscale..unlike in the books. In the books Connington has it but since he’s not in the show maybe Jorah will get it instead.
        Maybe Tyrion doesn’t get it because he’s a Targaryen? Or maybe GRRM chose to leave it vague so the sickness can manifest later when Tyrion least expects it. There’s a bit when he doesn’t want his boot checked, I think, but it’s because that’s where his poisonous mushrooms are stashed.
        Or, perhaps he caught it while still in the womb, which caused his disfigurement and killed his mother, yet left him with immunity.

        Seems to me like Tyrion is (like Arya) the authors favourite.He basically has death star level deflector shields, if Cersei really wants to kill him she’s got to go to Endor.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Connington has it. Book Tyrion (so far) does not. Don’t they have to go down that river for anybody to get it?

      • Bridget says:

        @size: I first read these about 12 years ago, when #3 came out. At first I was really peeved that GRRM has taken so long to finish (especially since books 4 and 5 were originally supposed to be one book that he split into 2… and it still took a decade) but at this point I’m happy for it to just end with the TV show.

      • mimif says:

        This is the biggest circle jerk I have ever been involved in online and it’s fantastic. I seriously blocked out books 4 & 5 so I don’t know shit about what might happen on the show. Minus Icy Sausages, that is.
        I’m not even making sense, im just posting because I can. Really I meant to write that I will be gutted if Tyrion gets the greyscale.

      • Bridget says:

        Because nothing happened in 4 and 5. They were terrible. It was like someone just decided he no longer needed an editor. How did it go from action packed, tightly plotted, to chapters of Sam on a boat to the Citadel?

      • Bridget says:

        I mentioned Robert Jordan elsewhere, but he did the same thing: his series got bloated because he got too caught up in his ancillary characters, and it started to feel like he was just switching off combinations of characters. And then he got sick and DIED. Another author (Brandon Sanderson, who I highly recommend) had to come in and finish the series in 3 more books, at about 1,000 pages each!

        And mimif, at least we’re not fighting over pretend husbands :)

      • mimif says:

        @Bridget, I don’t even know who your pretend husbands are! I have only one, Viggo, and I can’t be bothered to fight over him because he’s too serious. What do Vulcans like…Hiddles? 😀
        I totally don’t think GRRM is gonna finish* the books, and honestly, I don’t even think he cares at this point. I’m sure there are about a hundred billion nerds and nerdlettes waiting in the wings to step up tho.
        *i really hope he does tho.

      • paola says:

        mimif.

        I’m watching s1 and you can’t feel sorry for Cersei!!!
        YOU CAN’T! NEVER.
        God she’s a proper bitch. She deserves all the Margaeryness coming her way.

      • Bridget says:

        @Paola: I try not to make too many “book to tv show” comparisons, but it really bugged me that the show tried to soften Cersei’s motivations. She was straight up cold, but they tried to add in the whole stillborn baby thing.

        @mimif: the biggest issue is that Martin isn’t actually that passionate about Game of Thrones. This was supposed to be a 3 book series, not the culmination of his life’s work. He clearly loves the world he’s created, but the story started out of steam quickly after he killed Robb (and I personally think his writer’s block is because it’s not particularly inspiring to write for so many rotten, irredeemable characters). Game of Thrones has given him a lot of really fun opportunities – Cons all over the world, guest editing other series, one off series of his own, and the TV show – that he really, really enjoys. But now, if he doesn’t finish, Benioff and Weiss know what he wants, and we all know that it’s going to be the ‘official’ vision and not just what they thought it should be. At this point, long term fans of the series have come to terms with the fact that he’s just never going to hurry up (NERD ALERT: I actually submitted a question for an EW interview with GRRM years ago and asked if he felt any obligation to his fans especially after Jordan’s own brush with mortality and his answer was basically “Nope, it’s going to happen when it happens”).

      • Lilacflowers says:

        GRRM says the next book will be released in 2016. Of course, he also said it would be released in 2015. And 2014. And he doesn’t write during the NFL season.

        Jon Connington has greyscale on a toe or finger, can’t remember which, but by the end of book 5, it has taken the nail of whichever digit it was and is making him anxious about completing his mission for Aegon. No, Tyrion doesn’t have it. Tyrion also misses getting the bloody flux, which is claiming many people in the free cities and making its way through Danys minions.

        I think they’re going to skip the Meeren husband and have her open the pits at Daario’s request, but I wonder if Daario will betray her? Because there needs to be another betrayal.

        I can’t stand the Greyjoys. I’m curious to see what they do with the Sand Snakes, since Adrianne seems to be gone and her brother too. I want to know where Osha and Rickon and Shaggy Dog are. I want to know that in the books. And where is Arya’s direwolf?

      • mimif says:

        @Bridget, this exactly. GoT the entity has totally surpassed him as a writer and he doesn’t really “need” to finish it. I know a lot of fans get pissed that he spends so much time pursuing other interests and attending the Cons, etc., but I can’t say I blame him. Maybe it isn’t satisfying having his head stuck in front of a manuscript anymore, maybe that’s why he got involved with HBO, so they would carry the torch. And yeah, maybe it’s (totally) writer’s block. He’s probably forgotten more auxiliary characters/sub-plots than we have. ;)

        @poala, I know they played it different in the show, but wasn’t the whole still born thing a ruse tho? I thought she knew it was Robert’s (strong) seed and (late term) terminated it? Just like she took a mysterious tonic from Pycelle when Jamie got back to town, probably because it (had to be) was Lancel’s baby.
        I can’t help it tho, I feel sorry for crazy people!!

      • Size Does Matter says:

        @Bridget you are my HERO! An actual conversation with GRRM?!?

        I cannot wait till 2017 for this book. The Stallion that Mounts the World will be in kindergarten then, for Pete’s sake.

        Read down thread from @Lilacflowers that Tommen the actor said he is playing the role as if he were 12. I’m not so okay with that. But I can’t get too bent out of shape over the rapeyness when a penis is severed practically every five minutes. GRRM is an equal-opportunity sadist.

        And regarding re watching season one, I recently reread book one. Man, the Stark’s should have just stayed the heck in Winterfell.

      • Bridget says:

        @Size: Not that cool, unfortunately (though he apparently used to be very, very accessible on the Con circuit) – I just submitted a question. Which I actually never thought would be chosen so I was much more blunt than I would have been otherwise! It’s interesting, because there’s a fine balance in the relationship between the author and his audience. Our adoration has afforded him these opportunities that he loves, but we also don’t own him and his time.

        I don’t think he actually expected HBO to move forward without him. He really seemed to think it wasn’t a big deal that the books were taking so long, that the series could just be stretched out indefinitely. It was only when HBO was publicly putting pressure on him that you could see the writing was on the wall. Personally, I think that the show’s biggest strength in comparison to the books is their ability to edit down to what’s important, so when we see the events that are as of yet unpublished, it’ll be like we’re skipping the endless chapters of someone’s journey (or even worse, the endless chapters of Dany waffling back and forth!).

        Re: the Tommen/Margaery creepyness – I wonder if it’s the only way that they can portray the relationship as strong enough that Tommen will defy his mother.

        And I think they Greyjoys would have been interesting villains if the book wasn’t already heavily populated with horrible people doing horrible things. Did we really need the Ironborn and the Boltons and the Mountain and the Lannisters and the Freys, just to name a small handful?

      • Size Does Matter says:

        @Bridget – I think you’re right about the Ironborn. Enough villains already. Plus IIRC the Battle on the Blackwater was terribly expensive to film, and the Ironborn are practically always at sea, fighting someone. Very expensive to produce, which is also why we get so little of the direwolves and dragons.

        You’re right too about the show distilling the story. I guess I could stop watching, or stop thinking about how the show is spoiling parts of the books, but if I turn back I am lost at this point. Some I go east to go west, blah blah blah.

        They skewed all of the kids older on TV in the beginning of the series by a couple of years at least, and I’m glad for it. But my oldest son is 12, so Tommen at 12 being bedded is just wrong to me. Maybe the actor is wrong about the age. He does not look 12 to me. And the bedding changes everything!

        I read somewhere that the old Targ at the wall (some of these names I just can’t keep straight) was offered three temptations to leave and claim his birthright. And that the same will happen to Jon Snow. Parallels the three betrayals Dany will suffer (blood, gold, and love, right?). So many layers.

        P.S. Kaiser I’m assuming you are the one stuck moderating us. Thank you for our playground!

      • Bridget says:

        12 is gross no matter how you look at it.

        The show had to skew older with the children’s ages, for practical reasons, 1 of which being that it would just look wrong to have children killing. It’s fairly standard practice to age up like that (think of the movie Ender’s Game) and of course the younger that children are when they start the more noticeable it is as they age. They’re lucky that the actress that played Arya kept that baby face.

        I don’t know about the 3 tests for Jon, though it would make sense as he’s already faced 2. Maester Aemon was indeed tested 3 times, though we only know about the first one through his own admission and not what it actually was.

    • mimif says:

      @Lilac, this is why he never smiles.

      Nobody can take that face seriously.

  5. Barrett says:

    How about height inquiries? Is he 5’4 or 5’7?

    • Abbott says:

      He’s fun-sized!

    • Kitten says:

      This is what I’m wondering. I’m not trying to height-shame, I’m genuinely curious.
      He looks almost exactly my size. I’m 5’4″ 118 lb.

      Also, he does have really beautiful curly hair. I wonder if he uses coconut oil…

      • Abbott says:

        Google says he’s 5’8″, which means he’s probably 5’1″. I don’t know if they have coconuts north of the Wall.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Yeah, my first husband said he was 5’8″ too, which was odd, as I’m 5’6″ and he was shorter than I am.

      • mimif says:

        Lolz dying Abot.

      • paola says:

        I’m sure he doesn’t use what Jamie Lannister uses. His hair always looks greasy and gross. I don’t find jamie attractive AT ALL.

      • mimif says:

        DROGO!

      • paola says:

        Well mimif.. if you say Drogo all I can say is that he left too soon.
        Too soon.

      • Scotchy says:

        He was hanging out in a bar I used to frequent in Toronto, I’m 5’7″ and he was at least two inches shorter than me, so I’d say he is about 5’5″. I will say that in the flesh his face looks like a doughy baby with squinty wee little eyes. He isn’t very attractive, unless you like baby man dolls then he’s perfect.
        The camera really defines him and makes him look better than he is. His hair however. Woo well it sure was luxurious very silky. I am pretty sure he uses coconut oil. I’m betting he uses vats of it.

    • Kara says:

      why would that matter?

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Because SIZE DOES MATTER!

        Call me shallow, but I like men who are tall. It is a personal preference, probably not some sort of psychological disease. Bring back the Drogo!

      • Franca says:

        Drogo is one of the most unattractive men I have ever seen.

        I don’t mind if a dude is shorter than I am, who cares.

      • Sarah says:

        @franca to each their own I guess? Drogo was the manliest sexy man hunk I’ve ever seen!

      • Kitten says:

        “It is a personal preference, probably not some sort of psychological disease” this coupled with your screen name has me in tears. lol

      • OriginalTessa says:

        What Sarah said. He’s probably the hottest dude I’ve ever seen. I wouldn’t even know where to start with what I would do with that hunk of a man.

      • maeliz says:

        @sizedoesmatter, you’re not the only one who likes tall men. My boyfriend is 6’4 and ever since high school I’ve dated tall guys. My preference

      • Size Does Matter says:

        @Kitten – I’m still giggling about members only jacket variety pack from above. I do love my House Celebitchus!

        @Maeliz – I’m the same! High school boyfriend was 6’4″ and it ruined me. Husband is 6’6″. I need to invest in a Drogo costume for him and convince him to try speaking Dothraki.

      • mimif says:

        @Size you’re gonna have a long baby. Azor Ahai FTW!

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        My first husband was short. Never again. The insecurity and complexes, the horror of finding out that all myths about penis size are just myths, the no wearing high heels, the list goes on and on. No.

      • Franca says:

        But @GNAT, just because one man was like that doesn’t mean they all are.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        @Mimif – Somebody asked me this week if our two-year-old is four, so you’re probably right. The Stallion that Mounts the World! Except gross. I don’t really want to think about my sons mounting anything.

        By the way, there is an ad at the top of my page for “100%Virgin Remy Human Hair” that looks suspiciously like clip in extensions made from Lord Snow’s curls. Nooooooo! And grosssssssss!

      • mimif says:

        “Except gross, I don’t want to think about my sons mounting anything.” 😂😂

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        True, Franca, but never will I test the theory again.

      • mimif says:

        The horror of finding out that all myths about penis size are just myths….
        *dead*
        I’m with you, GutenRamen. Theory tested, never again. I wish marc was here, he’d probably have an embolism.

      • Bridget says:

        Wow, that definitely took a turn into penis country.

        One thing’s for sure: Theon won’t be working there.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Good grief. I leave for a couple hours and it becomes sausage central in here. Imagine the maester’s chain you could make from all the severed members in the books. GRRM, you Incesterly bastard.

  6. polyphonic pickles says:

    Mmmmmm thighs.

    Where in the world is Hodor?! That’s driving me insane.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Not on this season. So we all must Hodor for Hodor. Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!

      • mimif says:

        How can they go a whole season without HODOR?! Speaking of, have you ever seen him interviewed? He’s hilarious.

      • paola says:

        Hodor is the true star. I’m sorry but GRRM is a freakin genius for creating his character.
        And I’m sure all of the GoT is happening in his head.
        GRRM I’m talking to you: if you can read me don’t make GoT just a Hodor’s dream.
        If you’ll do I’ll hunt you down and there is no place in the 7 kingdmos you can hide.
        I will find you.
        Valar Morghulis.

  7. Delta Juliet says:

    OK, so as a person who has never watched GOT, and therefore has never seen this dude act, I can honestly say that I don’t find him remotely attractive and every time I see these articles I think “Really? Him?”

    Dude, shut up.

    • ann says:

      I agree. I don’t see it. Nothing eyecatching
      If he’s tired of people commenting on how nice his hair is, he could just shave in all of

    • vauvert says:

      You have to see him as Jon Snow. He knows nothing and you feel this urge to teach him everything. (In jeans, like this, on the street, I couldn’t care less.)

    • Sadie says:

      As a person who has seen every episode of GoT (most at least twice) I also don’t find him attractive. Robb Stark’s curls > Jon Snow’s curls forever. Also, while I am loving his character so far this season, the previous four seasons… kinda dull. So mopey. Would love to see him do a comedy actually, because he’s often been very funny and charismatic in interviews. Way more interesting as himself than as Jon Snow, and whatever that was in Pompeii.

      • mimif says:

        I met him at a party once…he’s nice but a bit shy and awkward.

      • paola says:

        Ahahaah!! mimif I’m DEAD.
        That video is everything. He can’t keep his face straight!

      • mimif says:

        I know! He’s f-cking funny. I feel like his champion around here cuz he gets so much hate, but dude is actually pretty clever (and humble too).

      • Sadie says:

        Nicely played mimif :-)

        I genuinely love him in interviews, and the dinner party spoof proves that he’s got a good sense of humor about himself. I just wish Jon Snow was more interesting (although I suspect the closer we get to the end the more interesting he’ll become.)

      • paola says:

        I feel kind of jelous when people say they like him too. He’s my type and shouldn’t be anybody else’s (apart from you mimif of course. we can share)

      • mimif says:

        I’ve never had a boner for him, I just feel highly protective of his character. Someone else smarter than me (maybe LilacVulcan) was commenting on how he actually does portray Jon Snow fairly well, since in the books he rarely speaks (his POV is mostly his thoughts), not to mention, he’s like, what…13 years old? Can you imagine having to play a 13 year old bastard kid that never talks? Kit nails it! lol

    • Cankles says:

      You know, “shut up, man” used to be my reaction to this guy as well, but now I sort of hope he never shuts up. Every time he opens his mouth, he immediately inserts his foot. It’s hilarious.

      And I completely agree with you-he is really not THAT hot. I see hotter men in the street every day, and I don’t exactly live in a diverse, bustling metropolis.

  8. Lilacflowers says:

    My favorite GOT line of all time? From Bran: “Hodor, just stop hodoring!”

    • jugstorecowboy says:

      SPOILER???: Not sure if they did this in the show, but I liked when Bran warged Hodor and said it was easy, he just had to walk around saying “Hodor” a bunch. That was cool.

    • Becks says:

      That line was the BEST 😂
      Hodor!

    • paola says:

      My favorite is :
      Margaery to Cersei
      ‘I wish we had some wine for you, It’s a bit early in the day for us’

      buuuuuurn girl.
      Cersei needed a couple of trucks of aloe vera to sooth that burn!

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Totally agree. That Margaery line was EVERYTHING.

      • mimif says:

        And and….oh, forgive me, I haven’t been at court long, but am I supposed to refer to you as Queen mother or Dowager Queen, you evil piece of shit?

      • paola says:

        Dowager Queen!!
        You could hear Cersei’s blood at boilint point!
        I Have a feeling that Marjaery will go full on Cersei on us when she’ll be in charge.
        Margaery’s smirk will rule the world.

        I loved when Tommen said to Cersei:
        ‘Do you ever miss Casterly Rock?’
        And Cersei’s face was like
        ‘ALERT ALERT MARGAERY INTRUSION ALERT ALERT’

      • Size Does Matter says:

        I read online that some people are all bent out of shape over the Margaery/Tommen post-coitus scene. Didn’t bother me. I’m assuming new Tommen is 16 or so, though. In the book he’s all of 8 and doesn’t get bedded.

      • paola says:

        I was wondering about that too.. they consummed the wedding so she is now the proper queen and she’ll be queen even if Tommen dies (unlike before. £ is her lucky number).
        Different from the books. In the books she can’t be queen until she beds Tommen.

      • mimif says:

        Considering the subject matter, I think they did a respectable job of filming that scene. And man, what a freaking manipulative tease Marg is! Poor Tommen is all, I’m in love lets bang all day, and Margaery is like yes yes later my love, I’m trying to take over the world.

      • paola says:

        He should go back to play with his other pussy: Ser Pounce.
        I can’t stand Tommen.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        The actor who is playing Tommen says he is playing him as a 12 year old.

  9. Sarah says:

    Haha there is a picture of a girl I know trying to chat him up in a club. She was whispering into his ear and he looked majorly unimpressed. I was happy as she’s a supertramp and he wasn’t having a bar of it

    Kit Harington’s hair or Richard Madden’s crotch?

    • mom2two says:

      Richard Madden, by far. Gods he is gorgeous.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Be careful what you wish for. There is a photo of the artist formerly known as Robb Stark in his Cinderella costume floating around out there that might impale you. Do not open unless you’re ready to change your screen name to MomToThree.

        How tall is Robb Stark, anyway?

      • Abbott says:

        Richard Madden is alledgedy 5’11″.

      • mom2two says:

        @SizeDoesMatter, I nearly spit out my drink, thanks for the laugh. Um, yeah, that Cinderella costume fit him well (to put it politely). Jenna Coleman is a lucky woman. He is said to be 5′ 11″ Harington looks to be a good 3-4 inches shorter than him.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Lol…..when I watched “Cinderella” I felt like a MASSIVE pervert, because every time he was on screen I was mesmerized by his crotch area…..

      • mimif says:

        There’s actually an article called “the conundrum of Richard Madden’s crotch” or something online that is pretty funny and tried to explain why they had to make it look so…that way. Obviously dude has some major junk to cover up.

      • Bridget says:

        Did you guys ever watch Drew Barrymore’s Ever After? The codpieces were ABSURD.

        Richard Madden is so pretty. Is he the full sized version to Kit’s fun-sized?

      • Sadie says:

        Oh Kit. I know he’s pretty short, but surely the perspective in that photo isn’t helping him out. Still, even before I realized there was a significant height difference Robb always did it for me. My poor tragic King in the North. (And Richard Madden’s Scottish accent! Gods be good!)

      • mom2two says:

        I’m still trying to visualize this elliptigo contraption you mentioned above, but all I can think of is rashes. Why would anyone work out in skinny jeans, ever?

      • Bridget says:

        Skinny jeans with his shirt tucked in, and he was about my dad’s age.

        Have you ever looked at GRRM’s Ice and Fire website? It’s crazy how many houses, complete with sigils and words, there are.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        I’ve only been to GRRM’s website to find new early released chapters of Winds of Winter. I have read three – Arya, Alayne/Sansa, and Arianne.

        I can’t believe the volume of fan-driven information/theory out there.

      • Bridget says:

        It’s the genre. Are you familiar with Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time books? They’re finished up so there’s no longer speculation driven interest, but there are a whole host of very, very involved websites and communities. And that’s without an HBO show!

      • mimif says:

        @Size, whatever you do, do not go to the GoT Reddit sub threads. We shall never see you again…

        I love the people (on Reddit) using the Wheel of Time to speculate what’s going to happen on GoT, or they will use reverse LOTR speculation to theorize as well. Mind. Boggling.

      • Bridget says:

        I’m partial to westeros.org

      • mimif says:

        That doesn’t surprise me, it’s much more logical there and you seem like a level-headed gal. Part Vulcan maybe. ;)
        Also, slightly obsessed with Ellipti-Go’s now.

      • Bridget says:

        I prefer to think of myself as part Jedi. Though it’s also just because westeros.org predates Reddit by a lot. Martin even had a couple of the site leaders help him with continuity for A Feast For Crows.

        The ellipti-go is kind of ridiculous, but it still isnt as bad as a segway.

      • mimif says:

        I just cannot fathom why any adult would ride around on either, unless it was scaly and breathed fire, they just seem so…completely unnecessary.

      • Bridget says:

        For what it’s worth, an ellipti-go is actually intended as a cross training option for runners because very few people in the gym actually use elliptical machines correctly, and this weird thing helps. And it got a lot of pers because last year’s Boston Marathon champ is a spokesperson.

      • mimif says:

        Vulcan speak! Okay, I’m gonna have to go check them out. Are you a long distance runner, Lady Bridget?

        I HEARD THAT, BRIDGET!! My spies are everywhere…

        I don’t race walk, I trot. It’s the only way I can finish a 50 miler. I might step it up to a power hike when I’m climbing a few thousand feet, however.

    • kate. says:

      Would he rather people say he’s ugly than comment about his good looks? He’s definitely annoying whining about it. I also don’t find anything attractive about him

  18. PrincessMe says:

    “But I do think he should just deal with it because… for goodness sake, it’s the exact same thing as an actress whining about being too beautiful to get good roles.”

    It’s not the same thing as actresses whining about being too beautiful to get roles – he didn’t say his hair is keeping him from getting roles. He’s saying quit asking him about his hair and only (or mostly) about his hair. You know what it’s similar to? Actresses saying quit asking me only about my looks when I’m promoting my film, and I’m sure most people would be applauding and agreeing if an actress had said that.

    It’s interesting that people tear Aniston apart for only talking about her hair (I’m sure she’s asked about it) but Kit should “suck it up” when people keep asking about it. Most people would get annoyed when they’ve been ushered into a box.

      I agree, and it’s not like he brought it up out of nowhere, he was asked what his least favorite question was and he answered.

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      He could model for L ‘Oreal hair products. ..”Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful. ..”

    • mimif says:

      I know right? Minus the Members Only jacket mentioned uothread, I think he looks fantastic. Not like I’m a fan (cough) or anything.

    This is soooo boring. Another brooding James Dean wanna be bemoaning the hardships of being paid millions of dollars to just read a script.

    If it’s so unbearable quit acting and go become a social worker in third world country.
