This is really sad to hear.

Sorry, "talent" crush! Then again, who doesn't!
In his new interview with Attitude Magazine, Daniel Radcliffe talks in length about his support for LGBT issues. As a major contributor to Trevor Project, DanRad has always been at the forefront fighting for gay youths and in this interview, he adds to his awesomeness by explaining why legalizing gay marriage is so important in this day and age.
"The ultimate reason gay marriage should be legalized everywhere is because, as a kid, you look to your mum and dad and they're married, then you look at the gay couple who've been together for the same amount of time, but because they can't get married their relationship doesn't seem the same. Gay people should have equality in law everywhere. If you grow up as a young gay man knowing you don't have the same opportunities as everyone else, you're going to feel victimized and massive prejudice towards you."
Word. Preach it, Potter!
Having been such a strong supporter for gay rights has led many to believe the rumors about DanRad's own sexuliaty … and his admittance to having a thing for Ryan Gosling is going to bring that speculation to halt any time soon! When asked who he admires most in Hollywood right now, he concedes:
"This year I have a talent crush on Ryan Gosling. I think he's fantastic and…(ahem) you know he'd be nice afterwards. He seems smart. If I was gay, I would go for a smart man."
If you were gay, you could have any man: smart, dumb, and everything in between!
But it doesn't matter "what" he is, only "who" he is — and we think he's one the brightest, most inspiring young actors of the day.
A tip of the hat to you, DanRad! Keep up all the amazing work!
