Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has said people often think he’s gay, but added he thinks it’s “awesome”.

Laughing off gay rumours, the 19-year-old star told AOL’s Moviefone: “It’s wonderful. I grew up around gay people my entire life, basically, that’s possibly why I’m quite camp, and some people think I’m gay when I meet them, which I think is awesome.

“It’s always good to keep them guessing. I don’t go on any blogs or chats or anything, but my friends are demons for them, and apparently someone said ‘Daniel Radcliffe is gay. He’s got a gay face!'”

Radcliffe is currently starring in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. To read our review, click here.
