While some actors might take the compliment of being called a “sex symbol” and move on, Daniel Radcliffe had some articulate feminist commentary to add to the label during a recent interview.
In an interview with the Associated Press published on Oct. 24, the 25-year-old actor discussed his upcoming movie “Horns” and how he feels about being labeled an “unconventional romantic lead” after starring as a young wizard in the “Harry Potter” movie series for so long.

“What weirded me out the most last night was people were asking me all these questions about the gay sex scenes.

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.

–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]
“This is way too much information, but I don’t like girls with nothing down there either. It freaks me out. You have to have something, otherwise it’s fucking creepy.”

“I was actually quite pleased, and this is only going to add fuel to the fires of the rumor that I’m gay. I don’t really care, I’m sort of past the point of caring. … I looked fantastic in Fleur’s outfit! I think I looked really good. It was these sort of skin tight trousers, with a clingy top and a nice little cropped blue jacket on top. Really nice. … I was really pleased.”
—Daniel Radcliffe talks about his cross-dressing scene in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” where all the characters take a potion to make themselves look like Harry in order to fool Voldemort. In the trailer, Daniel was even wearing Fleur Delacour’s bra. Fun! Keep reading »
