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!
