Radcliffe Out Cover Reveals Actor Nonplussed By Gay Sex Scenes

The interview that accompanies the Radcliffe Out cover reveals that the former Harry Potter star is feeling pretty nonplussed about his gay sex scenes in Kill Your Darlings, despite the fact that it’s caused a bit of a stir in the movie world. The transition from Harry Potter to… well, anything else, really, was never going to be easy and Daniel Radcliffe decided to make life a little challenging and really go against type with Kill Your Darlings. When asked about those sex scenes, though, Radcliffe insists that it’s no big deal.

“You never see a gay actor getting asked what it’s like to play straight - to my knowledge, at least, there is no difference in how heterosexual and homosexual people fall in love.” Of course, it’s not just his sexuality that makes Daniel Radcliffe seem like an unlikely candidate to play the role of Allen Ginsberg. “I don’t look like him,” Radcliffe confesses “and I’m English and middle-class and not from New Jersey. But that’s what I think is so exciting about it, because people have no idea.”

Radcliffe’s performance in the movie has been widely praised, with the relationship between Radcliffe’s Ginsberg and Dane DeHaan’s Lucien Carr being the focal point and most compelling element of the entire film. Kill Your Darlings received its debut at the Sundance Film Festival last month (January 2013), where Radcliffe received a great deal of praise for his performance.
