Say what now? ‘Gay sex is really f**king painful.’ – Daniel Radcliffe

1article-1332258023822-‘Harry Potter’ star, Daniel Radcliffe recently an interview to Flaunt about Kill Your Darlings, in which he plays poet Allen Ginsberg.

Says Radcliffe about playing gay:

“I don’t think there’s any difference between how one falls in love. People express love differently, person to person, but it’s not gender or sexuality related. The only difference it made was obviously the actual sex scene, of course…

“…I was talked through it by the director. He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take. Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really f**king painful. And [Krokidas] said that he had never seen that portrayed accurately on film before. He wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity. The transformative thing about the role wasn’t playing such a famous character or playing a character that had such a huge influence on society. It was more of trying to find your voice, and finding out who you are. It’s usually an awful and very painful journey, and it has to be—it involves getting heartbroken or failing at something that you want to succeed at. Those are important things to go through, and that was the thing that attracted me to the part.”

Oh dear, whatever happened to our dear, sweet boy-wizard…

    He’s basically saying the director explained that gay sex is painful the first time and wanted him to portray the part well as he the director hasn’t seen in other movies. Anything I’m missing?
