'Game of Thrones' star kicks Facebook addiction

  • The Game of Thrones star Kit Harington was heavily addicted to Facebook and looking at photos and status updates of people he barely knew. 

    "It takes a lot of self control not to go on the Internet and go to Facebook and look at nothing," Harington said. "I did it for years, and then I just cut it. It was just a way for me to look at crap people put on that I don't even know anymore. So I felt like I was wasting an hour a day of my life on something that wasn't getting me anywhere. It's not like I was using it for publicity."

    The 27-year-old said he battled the urge to go back on the site and doesn't miss it anymore. 

    "If I want to keep in touch with someone I will pass them my number or e-mail," Harington said.
