Hollywood.com singled out the romantic relationship between Radcliffe and [Dane] DeHaan as the motor of the entire movie, “eventually swelling to a burst of passion.” For many, the unflinching scenes of gay sex were further evidence, if it was needed, of the distance Radcliffe has travelled in a few short years. “The Boy Wizard never pinned his knees behind his ears,” snickered The Hollywood Reporter - a harbinger, one suspects, of many such jokes to come. Radcliffe himself remains unfazed, saying only, “You never see a gay actor getting asked what it’s like to play straight - to my knowledge, at least, there is no difference in how heterosexual and homosexual people fall in love.”
Daniel Radcliffe interviewed in Out Magazine.
Though the last quote sounds "nice", I don't agree with it.
I agree with the journalist though that there's going to be a lot of sniggering at the bum jiggery.
But as Daniel's also playing gay, I bet there'll also be a lot of; "So brave..."
Some people won't know whether to laugh or cry.
