Daniel Radcliffe Says He Felt 'No Discomfort' with Gay Scenes


The bespectacled actor explains that if he can simulate sex with a horse, he can handle a guy

We've been loving the look of Daniel Radcliffe as Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, (now filming in New York City). This week, he tells People magazine that he doesn't think he could keep up with Ginsberg's LSD consumption.

"LSD would not do well for me," says Radcliffe. "I've talked to a lot of people who've done a lot of LSD--and I know I would have a terrible time. I'm not tempted."

But when the interviewer asks how the gay love scenes, Radcliffe doesn't seem bothered at all. "There was no discomfort. There have been moments when Dane [DeHaan], the object of my affection in the film, and I did start giggling."

And Radcliffe makes the best point about how he expects Harry Potter fans to react to him playing Ginsberg's gayness: "Well, they were comfortable with Equus, and that had me simulating sex on the back of a horse, so this is a walk in the park."

And if you remember, he also has no problem with having transgender friends (read his conversation with Our Lady J).
