Daniel Radcliffe has said he
“obviously” supports gay marriage.
The 22-year-old English actor best know
for playing the title character in the Harry Potter series of
films spoke with gay glossy The
When the magazine
asked, “Marriage equality is a hot button issue in the States.
Earlier this year British Prime Minister David Cameron stated his
support. Is it safe to presume you support it as well?” Radcliffe
answered with a laugh: “Yes, absolutely. Obviously.”
He continued: “It
shouldn't even be a thing. It shouldn't even be a discussion. That
doesn't sound right. Everything should be discussed. Anyone should
be able to get married. One of the most amazing things I've seen was
during the Republican thing earlier when Michele Bachmann was still
around and some young girl asked her why gay men can't get married.
Michele Bachmann said they can but not to each other. I thought,
'That's the problem.' They don't even understand the question. It's
so frustrating to me and bizarre. Hopefully progress will come.”
Radcliffe plays gay
beat generation poet Allen Ginsberg in Director John Krokidas'
upcoming thriller Kill Your Darlings.
“I feel I am
incredibly lucky to be playing him,” Radcliffe said.
