Daniel Radcliffe: Despite Being Accused of ‘Gay Face’, I’m Not Gay


During his recent sit-down with MTV to discuss his work with The Trevor Project, the admirable Daniel Radcliffe fielded a question about his sexual orientation.

Said Radcliffe: My favorite thing I saw was a guy on the Internet that said, 'Of course he's gay. He's got a gay face,' which I thought was kind of an odd thing to say anyway. A 'gay face'? That's a very worrying thing, like they have sat at home and have got pictures of me next to other famous, gay [people] — Elton John, I don't know — just comparing across the years. I'm not sure. It's very, very odd...If people want to say that, they can. But I'm not. I'm straight."


Dan is rad.

Radcliffe added that he doesn't think his role as Harry Potter would have stopped him from coming out.

"I don't think my position would have stopped me if I was gay. I know that some actors actually don't like to. I kind of can understand that to a certain extent because sometimes you do see actors get typecast after they come out, which is unfortunate. But a lot of the time that doesn't happen. It's personal preference. Coming out is such an important moment in a gay man's life that I would never want to actually comment on whether or not anyone should or should not."
