Harry Potter star: Gay rumours "awesome"

Thu 16 Jul 2009 In: International News View at Wayback

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe says he doesn't mind if people think he's gay. Gay rumours are OK: Daniel Radcliffe "It's wonderful," the 20-year-old told the Moviefone website. "I grew up around gay people my entire life, basically, that's possibly why I'm quite camp, and some people think I'm gay when I meet them, which I think is awesome." He added: "It's always good to keep them guessing. I don't go on any blogs or chats or anything, but my friends are demons for them, and apparently someone said 'Daniel Radcliffe is gay. He's got a gay face!' I really don't know what a gay face is," he laughed. The wizard Dumbledore, one of the main characters in the Harry Potter books and films, was revealed to be gay in 2007. "I think it's wonderful," said Radcliffe about the senior wizard's 'outing'. "Half of me thinks Jo Rowling just did that to see if she could piss off the right wing, but I'm not sure how true that is. I think she had it planned, I think she always knew he was gay."
