Daniel Radcliffe Doesn’t Understand Why People Are Still Shocked By Gay Sex Scenes

“What weirded me out the most last night was people were asking me all these questions about the gay sex scenes. I was like, ‘You know I did ‘Equus?’ … Some people are asking me questions like this is a more shocking subject, which is so strange … It’s interesting that it’s deemed shocking. For me, there’s something very strange about that because we see straight sex scenes all the time. We’ve seen gay sex scenes before. I don’t know why a gay sex scene should be any more shocking than a straight sex scene. Or both of them are equally un-shocking.”

Daniel Radcliffe on being asked repeatedly about his gay sex scene in the Sundance film, “Kill Your Darlings,” where he plays poet Allen Ginsburg. I couldn’t have said it better myself. He’s right. It’s ridiculous. I don’t think any kind of on-screen sex scene is taboo at this point. I appreciate what a devoted ally Radcliffe is and I’m looking forward to seeing the film. [Celebitchy]
