Movie Stars and Gossip
In a recent interview with celebrity news, DANIEL RADCLIFFE admits that playing a gay man in his new movie “really changed something in me.”
In his accompanying interview with Flaunt magazine’s latest issue, which features him rocking a bottle green velvet suit on the cover, Dan talks about his experience filming “Kill Your Darlings,” wherein he portrays a gay poet, and his growth as an actor after famously playing Harry Potter for more than a decade.
Daniel tells Flaunt magazine:
“There is definitely something I related to in terms of artistically finding your own voice. To be honest, that’s only something I think I’m really starting to do now. It’s taken a long time and it actually only started for me with ‘Kill Your Darlings,’ and going back a little bit before that with the musical ‘How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.'”
He then shares that his stint as a Broadway star for eleven months and working in the controversial film with first-time director John Krokidas, whom he calls “one of the best directors I’ve ever worked with,” was a “huge” opportunity that “really changed something in me.”
Obviously, it didn’t take long before the film project caught everyone’s attention. After all. who would (or wouldn’t) want to see the heroic wizard doing sex scenes with a man?
But Daniel insists… It’s nothing that people should be really buzzing about.
“I don’t think there’s any difference between how one falls in love. People express love differently, person to person, but it’s not gender or sexuality related. The only difference it made was obviously the actual sex scene, of course… I was talked through it by the director. He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take.”
He adds, shockingly:
“Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really fucking painful… He wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity.”
We have to admit, we still can’t imagine him pulling it off.
Guess we’ll have to watch the movie to see for ourselves!
