This Daniel Radcliffe Quote About Horse Sex Is The Best Thing You’ll Read Today

Daniel Radcliffe Venice Film Festival Kill Your Darlings premiere September 2013

I have this weird disorder where I’m not particularly a fan of Harry Potter (please don’t throw garbage at me), but I adore the movies’ cast. Not only are there plenty of older British actors I admire, but the young cast has grown up to be pretty delightful. I count Emma Watson among my girl crushes, Rupert Grint’s pilot Super Clyde impressed me, and Daniel Radcliffe’s recent press tour for his new movie Kill Your Darlings has prompted me to start working on my application to be his best friend.

I think Dan Rad is doing a great job of moving forward and putting his famous childhood character behind him in a mature and refreshing manner (ahem, ahem). He also continues to be hilarious and down-to-earth in interviews. Take, for instance, this new quote he gave to The Sun about the controversy that has surrounded his gay sex scene with Dane DeHaan in Darlings. Daniel says “there’s nothing graphic about it. I mean, you see a bit of bum.” A bit of bum never hurt anybody! Then he gives a quote that will make your day, if not your weekend, if not your entire life, when he reminds everyone of his role in the play Equus.

“I f**ked a horse on stage when I was 17 but gay sex is more of a big deal!”

Do you want to start the standing ovation or should I? I love everything about this. I love that he skipped over every polite euphemism you could use for the situation and just went straight to “I f**ked a horse.” And I love that he calls out anyone who thinks a sex scene is automatically more “graphic” if it’s between two men. Yes, clearly Daniel has his priorities straight, unlike Hermione.

In fact, Daniel’s priorities are so straight (even though his movie roles aren’t always as much so) that he goes on to call out the hypocrisy even more.

“It is just the fact that it’s sex, and it’s sex with a man, I guess. It’s amazing how shockable the world still is.”

This guy, everybody.
