Daniel Radcliffe addresses persistent gay rumors: ‘I’m straight.’

While talking to MTV recently about his work with the Trevor Project, a non-profit organization offering suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth, Daniel Radcliffe addressed persistent rumors that he’s gay.

From MTV:

“If people want to say that, they can,” he said. “But I’m not. I’m straight.”

But he does get a bit of a kick out of reading about why other people think he’s not straight. “My favorite thing I saw was a guy on the Internet that said, ‘Of course he’s gay. He’s got a gay face,’ which I thought was kind of an odd thing to say anyway,” Radcliffe laughed.

“A ‘gay face’? That’s a very worrying thing, like they have sat at home and have got pictures of me next to other famous, gay [people] — Elton John, I don’t know — just comparing across the years. I’m not sure. It’s very, very odd.”
