So… what’s up with Daniel Radcliffe‘s hair? He turned up to the 2014 WhatsOnStage Awards in London on Sunday night with these insane shoulder-length extensions that lend him a bit of a Jesus air and actually… isn’t all that bad? It’s for his role as Igor in the new Frankenstein movie, and apparently he’s not all that fond of the time it takes to care for it.
From the Daily Telegraph:
“I don’t mind how it looks but I mind dealing with it. I don’t know why any man would have it voluntarily.
“The amount of work it takes, having to dry it – doing anything to it is a f**king nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn’t be growing my hair this long in my own time.”
What do you think?

Well, not anytime soon or anything. But unlike Jack Gleeson, Daniel Radcliffe is in no hurry to get out of the acting world and plans to stay in it for the rest of his life. Now there’s passion for the craft!… or something. Even though he’s spent his entire life up til now working tirelessly on project after project, he’s not tired of it, so everyone get used to the fact that ol’ Danny Radcliffe is here to stay.
From The Guardian:
“There’s an assumption that people make where if you’ve grown up on a set, surely you must be tired of that or want to go somewhere else. But actually I’ve never known anything but being on film sets and I love them. They are places of immense comfort and familiarity. I hope I get to die on one. Honestly.” He smiles. “Later rather than sooner.”
Ha! Well, fair enough. I’m sure there are plenty of directors who will still give him roles and he’ll spend a good amount of time in the theatre, as well. He already has enough money from Harry Potter and residuals, I would think, to never need to work another day in his life and still be filthy rich, but he obviously clearly loves it, so good for him.

As we all know by now, Daniel Radcliffe plays Alan Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, and the movie features a “beautiful and tender” (DRad’s words) gay sex scene between Ginsberg and Dane DeHaan‘s character Lucien Carr. Big deal, right? Who cares? Well, Danny does – he can’t believe that people are all up in arms about it. After all, he can fuck a horse on stage with impunity (we all remember Equus), so why can’t he screw another man in a movie?
From The Sun (via DS):
“There’s nothing graphic about it. I mean, you see a bit of bum.”
“I f**ked a horse on stage when I was 17 but gay sex is more of a big deal 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.”
In a sense, I’m totally with him. We don’t bat an eye at graphic hetero sex in movies, but if it’s between two men or two women, there’s a massive uproar. I mean, look at La Via d’Adele at Cannes this past year, for instance. It won the Palme d’Or and still people walked out of screenings because of the “graphic” 10-minute long sex scene which was anything but and totally vital to the story, so it’s not just about two men. Gay stuff is just still sensational, for whatever reason.
At the same time, methinks Dan is protesting a bit too much. I know it’s on topic because of the subject matter of this film, but for someone who’s not gay, he sure spends 90% of his time talking about gay shit. I don’t care either way, obviously – I mean, look at me – but I do wish he’d either shut up about it or come out already. Then again, maybe he’s just a really good ally. Anything could happen!

Right, so let’s cut to the chase on this one. Apparently Dan Radcliffe saw Katy Perry somewhere sometime and couldn’t speak because he saw her across the room and was mesmerized by her or something because she’s his celebrity crush (why don’t I buy this?). Anyway, Katy was told about this and here’s what The Sun quotes as her response:
“Oh please, this isn’t the third grade. Just ring me, Daniel. Don’t be shy, or get your people to call mine if you like.
“I am totally taken so it’s not about that. I think he’s cool and I’d really like to get to know him. We’ll all go out and party.”
Dear God. Can you see these two hanging out? I’m trying to imagine it and I just can’t. Who knows? Maybe they’d have an amazing time and John Mayer would get out his guitar and they could all have a little singalong and talk about their feelings. Stranger friendships have happened.
P.S. Nice beard crush, DRad. Katy Perry is pretty hot!

Daniel Radcliffe is one of my favorite celebs ever. His acting is just okay, I’m not really sure if I like it, but as an all around person and celebrity, this guy is great. He plays Words With Friends with Jon Hamm, is a snappy dresser, and has no problem getting naked. Let’s just say Harry Potter loves to show off his wand, am I right? (God that was horrible, I’m so sorry.) He talked about his nudity on Ellen’s show. Here’s what he said, via USA Today:
I’m comfortable with it, but I do like to point out, I don’t request it … They’re jobs.
Does he know he can say “no”? Good on Daniel though for showing some dong. Seriously, there isn’t enough full-frontal male nudity in the entertainment world. There’s boobs and vag galore, but very little dong. He and Ewan McGregor will lead us into a golden age of male nudity that I for one am excited about. Not necessarily for Daniel Radcliffe’s nudity, but any male nudity is a good thing. Let the dudes take off all their clothes for once.
Ha, speaking of dongs…
What? You totally clicked, don’t even.

Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe made a movie where they share a bath together and apparently the experience was just too magical to let go of. So they’re keeping in touch by playing Words With Friends. This is just effing adorable to me. Why Words With Friends, guys? Hamm says, from Pop 2 It via E! News,
Because that’s basically the 21st century way of staying in touch.
I’m a fan of his [Daniel Radcliffe]. He’s a lovely guy. He’s wildly intelligent and super funny and super talented. I like to have people in my life who are all three of these things.
I love that Hammdong describes Radcliffe as “a lovely guy.” I’m sure he’s the kind of chap who would make his own “get well soon” card for Hamm, who is going to have throat surgery to remove a polyp.
GUESS THEY’LL PLAY WWF WHILE HE’S RECOVERING!
