Daniel Radcliffe Discusses Gay Sex Scenes

As it's rumoured the Harry Potter star is dating movie co-star Erin Darke...

Daniel Radcliffe has opened up about filming gay sex scenes for his latest movie Kill Your Darlings.

Discussing the intimate scenes, Daniel told E!: "It was something new. But you know what, we shot that whole scene in maybe an hour and a half so it was incredibly fast-paced.

"I didn't really have time to stop to think and worry about it."

The Harry Potter star plays beat poet Allen Ginsberg in the film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last week (18 January).

Radcliffe also revealed he got a little help from director John Krokidas, who chose a friend to play the sailor that beds Ginsberg.

Daniel explained: "We were able to hang out a little bit on set and get to know each other a little bit, which I think is important when you're doing a scene so intimate. You have to feel like you're both in it together."

The gay scenes could also have given Dan an edge with the ladies.

According to The Sun, female fans have enjoyed watching Radcliffe in action in the movie - and he's rumoured to have pulled his co-star Erin Darke.

An insider told the paper: "Daniel was really taken with Erin on set but is cautious about coming out and saying he's seeing someone before he knows it's something special."

But the pair were apparently spotted getting very cosy at the Kill Your Darlings after-show party.

The paper quotes a witness as saying: "They were getting very intimate at the party in a vodka lounge, kissing and with Daniel stroking her leg.

"He's usually not one for casual displays of affection so it obviously meant something. And when they left they were hugging and giggling."

Daniel split from his girlfriend of two years, Rosie Coker, back in October.
