If You Think Daniel Radcliffe Is Gay… You're Right!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayAnglophiliaDaniel RadcliffeHarry PotterLGBT


We mean, no. No, Daniel Radcliffe is not gay. But he doesn't mind if you think he is, which we kind of think is fabulous!

With the the first showing of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince only hours away (we bet you die-hards are already in line for your midnight showing), there is a bunch of juicy stuff for fans to munch on all over the Internet.

We came across this interview with Harry Potter himself and what we read, we enjoyed.

The actor was asked about the character of Dumbledore becoming an icon for the gay rights movement. He replied:

"It's wonderful. I grew up around gay people my entire life, basically, that's possibly why I'm quite camp, and some people think I'm gay when I meet them, which I think is awesome. It's always good to keep them guessing [laughs]. I don't go on any blogs or chats or anything, but my friends are demons for them, and apparently someone said "Daniel Radcliffe is gay. He's got a gay face!" [Laughs] I really don't know what a gay face is. But I think it's wonderful that Dumbledore was outed as gay … Half of me thinks Jo Rowling just did that to see if she could piss off the right wing, but I'm not sure how true that is. I think she had it planned, I think she always knew he was gay."

As the Brits would say: How bloody brilliant!

    ugly teeth but he is very smart and opended minded

  12. 12

    you're such a fuckin' loser homo Perez…leave Radcliffe alone. You are simply glorifying him because he's cool with gay people, and GOD FORBID he felt otherwise. He is far superior to you always, and probably could care a less about you liking him or not.

  13. 13

    i kind of love the fact hes eccentric!

  14. 14

    'How bloody brilliant"????? why do you think us brits would say that? we're not all some stereotype from an american movie!!

  15. 15

    love him!

  16. 16

    He looks like a scary ass jack in the box in that picture.

  17. 17

    No hes not hes differenyt with a nice brighter smile than many other people!!

  18. 18

    i love him off but he shuld pluck those eyebrows back to duo.

  19. 19

    He seems very intelligent and confident enough not to be threatened by silly stuff. I think that he has worked so hard, and has become a great actor. I could see him going on to get Oscars (or BAFTAs), directing, etc.

  20. 20

    Not to be critical, but that's exactly what my gay friends said when they were in the closet. "Ohhh, whaaat? I'm not gay! But, um, I guess you could see how I'd look gay…." Come on out, girl!

  23. 23

    I love Daniel Radcliffe's attitude and open mindedness tho

  24. 24

    SHIT SHUT UP i almost tought it was true stop putting those titles!!!

    Why do celebrities feel the need to say derogatory things about entire huge groups of people? I'm extremely conservative, and a Christian (many would label me as "fundamentalist") and I LOVE Harry Potter. You have no idea how much. But when celebrities say things like "piss(ing) off the right wing" or whatever, it makes me sad. Like when Linda Ronstadt said that thing about "why in the hell would any republicans be here tonight, I hate them" and all the republicans left. Celebrities should be careful. They may not realize just who they're alienating until it's too late.
    Anyway…..Harry Potter! Yay! I'm so excited about the movie tonight!

  26. 26

    why does he always look like he's wearing pink eyeshadow?

  27. 27

    He hangs out with trannies when he could be snogging Emma Watson… OF COURSE HE'S GAY!

  28. 28

    Re: Betho – Really? Is Draco in it a lot? (That's all I really need to know)… lol.

  29. 29

    Damn celebrities, they're always acting like republicans are against gay marriage, or pro war, or anti womens rights.

    I mean where do they get that from?

    You'd think republicans tried to shove christian morality down everyones throats while Bush was in office or something.

    I think someone needs to read some of the Potter novels again, there are a number rips on the right, and all are done in lovely metaphorical way. I find it kind of amusing that some republicans somehow managed to miss that.

    These days you just have to call someone an asshole outright, otherwise the insults will just go over their pudgy head.

  30. 30

    i think when he called robert pattinson a sex symbol (Which he so is…) he came out

  31. 31

    He. . . is . . . so . . . ugly.

  32. 32

    Major gay face. Although he would make a fairly average looking woman.

  33. 33

    Rachel Drache and Daniel Radcliffe…separated at birth.

  34. 34

    It's difficult to know what Trannydanny is. He says all kinds of things about himself. Recently he said he preferred "older women." Now he is saying he "can't find a girl friend." (Advice to TrannyDan: you just pick up the phone and call Acme Escorts; it't quite simple). He also writes poems about the following:

    The verses are about infidelity, Pop Idol and Kate Moss's former boyfriend, the singer Pete Doherty.

    One of the four, Away Days, details the narrator's affairs with prostitutes, conducted while his unsuspecting wife and son believe he is away on business.

    Another critiques Simon Cowell and the queues of "deluded" hopefuls who line up to compete in TV talent contests.

    He also wrote one on attempting to seduce woman. Sooooo, lessee:

    He thinks about whores, prostitutes, infidelity and seduction. TrannyDan, I think youze a confuzed wille boy.

    Re: hellojessi – Love Harry Potter AND gays?

  36. 36

    These kids are awesome. Gotta love them. I'm glad they didn't turn into the usual celeb drama that child stars tend to become.

  37. 37

    OMG you gave me a heart attack. I think he is a cutie he can't be gay, he's just British and thats hot. Rob Pattinson can be gay if you want, but not Dan he is just to sweet and I'm sick of the gay community taking all the good guys away. Although, I was shocked to find the Elijah isn't gay….I always thought he was hmmm well thats what you get with actors I guess they keep you guessing.

    Is he wearing pink eyeshadow?

  39. 39

    he definately has homosexual tendancies

  40. 40

    Re: WildOrchid1298 – You need to read his poem about whores before you call him a "cutie". I think you are starry eyed and naive.

  41. 41

    I don't think all that hair is his. I suspect he wears wigs in the movies and in interviews.

  42. 42

    I love DAn!! He's so awesome and so funny!! He was BRILLIANT in HBP!!! :D

  43. 43

    I've never heard anyone, nor myself say "How bloody brilliant"

  44. 44

    How is Dumbledore's sexuality an issue at all???

  45. 45

    Harry Potter speaks his mind and he's "brilliant." Miss California does and you go on a rampage and call her a "moron." I guess it depends on whom you agree with, Perez. Sloppy, biased journalism as usual.

  46. 46

    Re: Lady_Saccharine_Sweetness – Draco is in this film more than he has been in any of the others..

  47. 47

    Re: WildOrchid1298 – We have enough openly gay celebrities in the UK for Daniel Radcliffe not to worry about coming out as a gay man.. The only place its ever mentioned is on here for some reason..There has never been any suggestion of it in the UK…

  48. 48

    This is a really smart, charming and funny guy. Too bad that more in Hollywood aren't like him.

  49. TheOC says – reply to this


    Bloody Brilliant!!!

    P.S. chace crawford is waaaaaaaaaay gayer than he is and it's good he doesn't care!

  50. 50

    He's a cutie and seems like a nice guy.

  51. 51

    Intelligent and open minded.

    He'll go far, but look at those bloodshot eyes!

  52. 52

    Re: Deviancy – Seeing as most of the people who voted against Prop 8 and accuse Harry Potter of being "the devils work" I would strongly have to agree with the celebrities who stereotype republicans.

  53. 53

    And who ever said he was a tranny or has "homosexual tendenacies" is ridiculous so what if he's not that attractive to you.

    It doesn't mean he's an out of this world creature.

  54. 54

    Boy must've really pissed off whoever did his makeup.

    "How bloody brilliant." Really, Perez?

  55. 55

    why do people keep wanting celebrities to be gay.
    People now are so….stupid to say the least.

  56. 56

    Re: titismack – Nobody said he WAS a tranny; rather he likes trannies. If his poem is any indication he is into whores; that would not be very gay.

  57. 57

    Ha, I would never peg Daniel Radcliffe as gay, not in a million years.
    But, if he was, good on him.
    If you're gay, it doesn't really matter.

  58. 58

    i would love to go out with him!!

  59. 59

    ush if he is not in blogs then i have wasted a lot of time in comments here saying that i love him

  60. 60

    but is great how well he reacts to gossip he totally was born to be famous he handle everything

  61. 61

    my classmates always bother me saying that he is gay :(

  62. 62

  63. 63
