Gigi: I’m not a dumb model

Game of Thrones star opens up to cop

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Kit Har­ing­ton re­vealed the fate of his Game of Thrones char­ac­ter to get out of a speed­ing ticket. The 29-year-old ac­tor - who stars as Jon Snow in the se­ries - was driv­ing back from his par­ents’ house when he got caught speed­ing and was of­fered a chance to get out of it if he re­vealed the fate of the pop­u­lar char­ac­ter. Speak­ing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fal­lon, he said: “One po­lice­man knew. He said, ‘Look, there’s two ways we could do this. You can ei­ther fol­low me back to the po­lice sta- tion now and I book you in, or you can tell me whether you live in the next se­ries of Game of Thrones’.”

When Kit con­firmed his char­ac­ter would still be alive, the of­fi­cer told him: “On your way Lord Com­man­der. Keep the speed down this far south of the wall.”

Kit has pre­vi­ously apol­o­gised to fans for ly­ing to them when he said Jon Snow was dead, only for the char­ac­ter to come back to life in se­ries six, which is cur­rently show­ing on OSN.

Kit has also been talk­ing about girl­friend and for­mer co-star Rose Leslie, whom he met on set .

He said: “If you’re al­ready at­tracted to some­one, and then they play your love in­ter­est in the show, it be­comes very easy to fall in love.” Gigi Ha­did says so­cial me­dia has “taken the dumb model stereo­type away”. The 21-year-old - who is dat­ing Zayn Ma­lik - feels she has “much more con­trol” over who she is be­cause of the pro­files she has on Face­book, Twit­ter and In­sta­gram. She said: “We’ve just been given a gift as a gen­er­a­tion of be­ing able to show our own per­son­al­ity and have so much con­trol over the per­son we are to the pub­lic, and not just be­ing a face on a page. I think so­cial me­dia has taken the dumb model stereo­type away.” And Gigi also of­fered ad­vice to her fel­low avid so­cial me­dia users, in­sist­ing none of the neg­a­tive com­ments on sites are “real”. She added to Mash­able: “Just real­is­ing how it’s not real, how none of it’s real. If all tech­nol­ogy just shut down to­day, all of those com­ment feeds would just be noth­ing so you have to fo­cus on your own strength re­gard­less of that stuff and try and find your­self with­out that stuff.” How­ever, Gigi pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted she con­sid­ered quit­ting mod­el­ling be­cause of on­line crit­ics. She shared: “I am hu­man and try not to read it all the time - but it does get to me, I think that when you go through some­thing like that, and you’re re­ally al­most let­ting it af­fect what you think of your­self - it was get­ting to a place where I was al­most like, ‘Should I be here?’ And I was like, ‘ This isn’t okay. I shouldn’t be ques­tion­ing do­ing my job be­cause peo­ple are be­ing mean on the In­ter­net’.”
