The actor, 29, said he often feels subjected to sexism, particularly when he is asked to strip off during photo shoots, reported Digital Spy.
"I don't want to seem ungrateful I'm lucky. But I can't say that I like a lot of attention a lot of the time. can't pick and choose when you get it.
"I think 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."
The actor went on to say, "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."
