Daniel Radcliffe on the Physical Pain of Gay Sex and the Heartbreaking Task of Finding Yourself: VIDEO

Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe gives a great interview to Flaunt about Kill Your Darlings, in which he plays beat poet Allen Ginsberg.

Says Radcliffe about playing gay:

“I don’t think there’s any difference between how one falls in love. People express love differently, person to person, but it’s not gender or sexuality related. The only difference it made was obviously the actual sex scene, of course…”

...I was talked through it by the director. He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take. Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really f**king painful. And [Krokidas] said that he had never seen that portrayed accurately on film before. He wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity. The transformative thing about the role wasn’t playing such a famous character or playing a character that had such a huge influence on society. It was more of trying to find your voice, and finding out who you are. It’s usually an awful and very painful journey, and it has to be—it involves getting heartbroken or failing at something that you want to succeed at. Those are important things to go through, and that was the thing that attracted me to the part.”

Daniel Radcliffe Laughs at Freddie Mercury Casting Rumors

RadcliffeYes, all the claims being made by the UK's Daily Star tabloid about Daniel Radcliffe playing Freddie Mercury were just that - claims.

Says Radcliffe:

"There is no truth to it at all,. It's one of those very, very funny things: it came out of a story in the Daily Star and then you see newspapers like The Guardian using The Star as their source, and it grows and grows [until] it's 'Dan Radcliffe is playing Freddie Mercury!', which I was never going to do. Everyone on the internet who I presume is saying I'm totally wrong for that part is correct. I AM completely wrong for that part!"


Daniel Radcliffe to Play Freddie Mercury?

The role of Freddie Mercury in a biopic once attached to Sacha Baron Cohen is Daniel Radcliffe's is he wants it, according to UK tabloid The Daily Star:

MercuryBorat star Sacha Baron Cohen, 41, quit the biopic project this summer following clashes over the script with band members Brian May, 66, and Roger Taylor, 64.

But now producers are keen to bag Radcliffe, 24, and are prepared to offer him big money to tempt him to play the gay singer, whose string of hits included camp rock anthem I Want To Break Free.

If he takes the part, Hollywood insiders predict it will be the actor’s biggest pay day since he played Harry Potter in the successful movies.

“Plus, he’s closer in height to Freddie than Sacha, who’s much taller. Daniel can really sing, too.”

The tabloid also claims that producers are impressed with Radcliffe's Kill Your Darlings performance as gay beat poet Allen Ginsberg, and say that Baren Cohen dropped out because the characterization of Mercury wasn't flamboyant enough in the script for him.
