Daniel Radcliffe, the British actor famous for portraying everybody’s favorite boy wizard Harry Potter, again denied persistent rumors that he is gay. He doesn’t care if people think he is, but he isn’t.

Radcliffe once again addressed the rumors during a recent interview with Mtv in which he talked mainly about his work with The Trevor Project, a program that works to prevent suicide among LGBT teens.

Radcliffe told Mtv: “If people want to say that, they can. But I’m not. I’m straight. … My favorite thing I saw was a guy on the Internet that said, ‘Of course he’s gay. He’s got a gay face,’ which I thought was kind of an odd thing to say anyway. A ‘gay face’? That’s a very worrying thing, like they have sat at home and have got pictures of me next to other famous, gay [people] — Elton John, I don’t know — just comparing across the years. I’m not sure. It’s very, very odd.”

Radcliffe, who has often talked about growing up around a lot of gay people and about his support on LGBT issues, also told Mtv that he believes that if he were gay, he would not have let his fame as “Harry Potter” keep him from being out.

There is a video of the interview with Radcliffe on the Mtv site that was I going to post here. But it isn’t working right now. You can go here to read the story and see if they have the video working yet.
