Daniel Radcliffe Takes Best Actor At Attitude Awards
Cher, Game Of Thrones and Ellie Goulding also honoured at ceremony...
Daniel Radcliffehas taken the best actor award at this year's Attitude Awards, in recognition of his performance in Kill Your Darlings.
The former Harry Potter star portrayed a young version of beat poet Allen Ginsberg in the movie, which is set for release in the UK in December.
Speaking to Flaunt magazine before the ceremony, at London's Royal Courts Of Justice, D-Rad explained that director John Krokidas had encouraged him to push boundaries as he acted out losing his gay virginity.
"I was talked through it by the director. He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take," he explained.
"Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really f***ing painful. And [Krokidas] said that he had never seen that portrayed accurately on film before. He wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity.
"I don't think there’s any difference between how one falls in love. People express love differently, person to person, but it's not gender or sexuality related. The only difference it made was obviously the actual sex scene, of course."
Other winners at the event included pop legend Cher - who was given the first ever "Attitude Legend" award - and Liberace movie biopic Behind The Candelabra was named "Film of the Year" - with Michael Douglas accepting the award via videolink from the US.
Adult fantasy drama Game Of Thrones took the gong for TV Show of the Year while Ellie Goulding took the Music Award.
