How do you feel about Dumbledore becoming somewhat of an icon for the gay rights movement?
Daniel Radcliffe: It's wonderful. 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. It's always good to keep them guessing [laughs]. 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!" [Laughs] I really don't know what a gay face is. But I think it's wonderful that Dumbledore was outed as gay ... 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.
My friend pointed out that when the 7th movie comes out, our childhood will basically be over. Sadface.
I'm still on the fence about the last three films-years 3, 4 and 5 pissed me off(they took out the whole house elf subplot-ahhhhhhhhhhh)
Anyways, I am glad Mr. Radcliffe is open minded.
