Daniel Radcliffe Sought Same-Sex Love Advice From Gay Director
Daniel Radcliffe turned to his gay "Kill Your Darlings" director John Krokidas for same-sex love-making tips in his new movie.
The star portrays late gay poet Allen Ginsberg in the upcoming biopic and had to strip down for a sex scene with another man. He also makes out with his co-star Dane DeHaan.
The 23-year-old straight actor needed some guidance to play a gay man, so he turned to Krokidas for advice.
The moviemaker told the Associated Press, "Radcliffe simply asked, 'John, you're gay. How does this work?' I'm not kidding. And so perhaps there was a little dry run-through... with me and the director of photography Reed Morano. I might have done it on purpose to make everyone laugh, too, but I also wanted to make sure that we got it right.
"Other films that have depicted certain moments of sexuality like this, it doesn't happen that way. And at least for cinematic history, I wanted to get that moment right. But Dan watched, observed, found his own connection like he did any other scene and dove right into it."
