Daniel Radcliffe On His Gay Love Scene

Danielrad
Daniel Radcliffe portrays Allen Ginsburg in the upcoming gay-themed film Kill Your Darlings. Last night, the actor appeared on The Graham Norton Show and talked about the on set direction he received from director John Krokida while shooting a gay love scene.

"And the favorite note I have ever had was when we were kissing and the director shouted, ‘No, not like that. Crazy sex f***ing kissing!'"

Sounds we should expect quite the passionate scene in the movie. Watch the interview, AFTER THE JUMP. The bit about Kill Your Darlings comes in during the first minute or so of the clip.

  3. While I genuinely like Daniel and he seems to be one of the more enlightened actors of his generation, I am really, really tired of all the sensationalism that surrounds any straight actor portraying a homosexual in films.

  4. Straight male actors love playing gay. It looks good on their resumes. They have to distance themselves from the performance. Justin Bartha from "New Normal" just got married, or engaged. When listening to straights talk of kissing scenes with men, it sounds like they are describing holding their breath under water.

  5. Speaking of straight exploitation-- It's time to get de-Franco this site. I'm sick of James and David on here --They are milking gays to enhance their straight careers.

  6. It is probably a good move for Radcliffe. Portraying someone as polarizing as Allen Ginsberg, especially if he does it well, will give him further distance from the franchise-that-must-not-be-named.

    I wonder how Ginsberg's defense of NAMBLA will be portrayed? Even if the film doesn't adopt a point of view, I hope they clearly portray the queer communities revulsion of his position.

  7. "I am really, really tired of all the sensationalism that surrounds any straight actor portraying a homosexual in films"

    Any actor who has steamy sex scenes has a lot of attention on them. Men who show their penises (str8 or gay),movies like Eyes Wide Shut, and the question of whether something was "real" sex or just acting. This is just another example of that. Actors in movies want to have a large audience. Daniel is saying this is a passionate true to life scene as opposed to a homogenized sex scene. I think it all is matter of society becoming more SEX positive, not just gay sex positive. If Neil Patrick Harris can play a womanizing str8 guy why is it bad for a str8 guy to play a gay guy?

  8. It amusing to see NAMBLA mentioned. Since when are gays so liberated that they don't support every group? Tone sounds like he is from the 50's. He doesn't speak for the "queer" community--unless it's now connected with the PTA. Who can we cast in the NAMBLA film? You brought it up.
