Actor Daniel Radcliffe would go for
Ryan Gosling, if he was gay.
The 22-year-old Radcliffe discussed his
sexuality, his atheism, his support for gay marriage, his dislike of
anti-gay politicians and whom he would be crushing on if he was gay
in a cover interview with UK glossy Attitude.
Radcliffe, who is best known for
playing the title character in the Harry Potter film series,
has signed up to play gay beat generation poet Allen Ginsberg in John
Krokidas' upcoming thriller Kill Your Darlings.
“Gay people should have equality in
law everywhere,” Radcliffe told the magazine. “If you grow up as
a young gay man knowing you don't have the same opportunities as
everyone else, you're going to feel victimized and massive prejudice
“They” – anti-gay GOP
presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann –
“disgusted me less than candidates like Rick Perry, who made that
ridiculous advert wearing 'the Brokeback jacket,' and I think
pretend to be homophobic just to win votes.”
“This year I have a talent crush on
Ryan Gosling,” Radcliffe confessed. “I think he's fantastic and
… you know he'd be nice afterwards. He seems smart. If I was gay,
I would go for a smart man.”
