Actor Daniel Radcliffe has said he felt
no discomfort with filming gay scenes in Director John Krokidas
upcoming thriller Kill Your Darlings.
In the film, Radcliffe plays gay beat
generation poet Allen Ginsberg.
Radcliffe told PEOPLE magazine that
he's not tempted to give Ginsberg's LSD consumption a try, gay glossy
“LSD would not do well for me,” he
said. “I've talked to a lot of people who've done a lot of LSD –
and I know I would have a terrible time. I'm not tempted.”
The Harry Potter star added that
the film's gay love scenes left him and co-star Dane DeHaan giggling.
“There was no discomfort,”
Radcliffe said. “There have been moments when Dane, the object of
my affection in the film, and I did start giggling.”
Last year, James Franco played Ginsberg
in the film Howl. The movie looked at the poet's most famous
poem, Howl, which became the subject of a landmark obscenity
trial that tested the boundaries of the First Amendment. Aaron Tveit
played opposite Franco as Peter Orlovsky, Ginsberg's lover.
