This is MORE THRILLING than catching the Golden Snitch!!
When the journalist asked Dan about how his transition from child star to male lead was odd for many of his fans — the actor quipped back with the perfect response, while sticking up for gender equality!
“Around the time of What If, the rom-com coming out, a lot of people were saying, ‘You’re really an unconventional romantic lead.’ And so eventually I got bored of hearing that and I kind of picked someone up on it so I was like, ‘What about me is unconventional, exactly? Like, tell me.’ And she said, ‘Well, I think it’s probably the fact that, you know, we associated you with playing Harry, the young boy wizard.’ My immediate response was, ‘Well, the male population has had no problem sexualizing Emma Watson immediately.'”
Da-da-DAMN! Truer words have never been said! Guess we know the 25-year-old HP star is totally down with the HeForShe movement!
