Daniel Radcliffe Makes Epic Feminist Statement [VIDEO]
Daniel Radcliffe has something to say to people who are having a hard time viewing him as a sex symbol because of 'Harry Potter' -- and it isn't what you'd expect.
In a recent interview for his upcoming movie 'Horns,' a poised Radcliffe responded eloquently to a question about people seeing him as a sex symbol.
"Around the time of 'What If,' the rom-com coming out, a lot of people were saying 'You're a really unconventional romantic lead.' And so eventually I got bored of hearing that and I kind of picked someone up on it so I was like, 'What about me is unconventional, exactly? Like, tell me.' And she said, 'Well, I think it's probably the fact that, you know, we associated you with playing Harry, the young boy wizard,'" Radcliffe recalled. "My immediate response was the male population had no problem sexualizing Emma Watson immediately."
And that wasn't the only important point that Radcliffe made in the interview -- he also had some important things to say about his post-'Harry Potter' life.
"If something gets frustrating it's the fact that people seem to think that everything I'm doing is a comment on 'Harry Potter,' which it's not, and it does not always need to be equated to that -- but because that's the narrative of my life, that's what people get into all the time," he explained. "… Some people seem to think that by wanting to do other things, it somehow means that I am not proud of 'Harry Potter,' which is just ludicrous."
