Daniel Radcliffe On His “Groundbreaking, Beautiful” Gay Sex Scene In “Kill Your Darlings”

"Kill Your Darlings"

I felt like I was breaking new ground. Most actors grow up doing a lot of small movies and then get something big, but I started on the biggest film in the world. So it’s an experience that I haven’t had. I’m sure some people will be slightly… err… startled by the gay sex scene though. It’s actually not graphic. You don’t actually see anything. What’s graphic is the emotion of the scene. It’s a very vulnerable, slightly afraid moment. It’s beautiful and tender as a consequence of that.”

      Anxious to see this movie. from what I have read of Ginsberg, Radcliffe is most likely perfect the casting choice for this role.

      Aren’t there any actual gay celebrities we can focus on? He’s not gay but it’s like it rains brownie points whenever he says the word.

      He’s just pandering to us for attention.

      It’s a very vulnerable, slightly afraid moment.

      Love him! Although IMO he’s terribly miscast in this role I’m looking forward to the film. I’ve always loved the Beats and that era. I hope he sparks an interest in his HP fans for Ginsberg, Kerouac etc. and that period of literary history.

      Call me crazy but I think Daniel is already a member of our club so I do t think it was a stretch for him to kiss a guy on camera.

      So depressed. Kill Your Darlings will not play in Oklahomo. Really wanted to see it on the big screen. : (

      Saw the movie tonight. Sex scenes??? You’re kidding me right? The sex scene was a clumsy scene about how he picked up some trick in a bar and got poked! very broken up with a lot of cutting away abstractly. Got the gist of what was happening but really it was such a great movie otherwise that this scene should have been cut out entirely. It was very awkward. The other was a kiss scene that was very benign at best and very short. Again could have easily been left on the cutting room floor. But I did enjoy the rest of the movie.
