Nathan & Morena
my life is one obsession after another
“Tall, funny children with fabulous hair.”
I can’t even begin to tell you how this thrills me to my very core.

Might have to make this some day, too cute. I love that it looks like a bucket with strawberries in it.
Highlights from the new Out article on DanRad:
“For many, the unflinching scenes of gay sex were further evidence, if it was needed, of the distance Radcliffe has travelled in a few short years. “The Boy Wizard never pinned his knees behind his ears,” snickered The Hollywood Reporter — a harbinger, one suspects, of many such jokes to come. Radcliffe himself remains unfazed, saying only, “You never see a gay actor getting asked what it’s like to play straight — to my knowledge, at least, there is no difference in how heterosexual and homosexual people fall in love.”
“The more he thought about it, the more Krokidas was sure that Kill Your Darlings would appeal to Radcliffe. There was just one problem. “Before I sent out the script, I said, ‘Oh shit, Daniel’s not Jewish,’ and my boyfriend said, ‘Of course he’s Jewish — everyone in the world knows that. Didn’t you see the shots from Equus? He’s only British from the waist up.’ ”
Radcliffe says he can barely bring himself to watch his early performances. “I certainly wouldn’t watch number three, I wouldn’t watch the first two, I wouldn’t watch four,” he says, ticking off each of the installments. “I might watch five.” He pauses. “I definitely wouldn’t watch six.”
There’s modesty in that, which has made him popular on set, where stars can often expect to be cosseted and indulged. “He literally gets to know the names of every member of his crew on set and remembers them,” says Krokidas. “On our set, he was playing Words With Friends with some of the P.A.s — he’s that guy.”
For Radcliffe, this is simply instinctive — “I’ve got great parents who would never have allowed me to become a cocky, obnoxious shit,” he says — but it’s also how he learned to behave on the Warner Bros. lot in Leavesden, England, where he spent so much of his youth.
Radcliffe is prepared for that. He watched a TED talk recently, on reinventing feminism. “The speaker said that part of growing up is aiming to succeed but being fulfilled by failing really well,” he says. “That’s what I feel this year has been all about for me. I’m looking at my work for the first time and not cringing. I’m going, ‘Yes, this is closer to what I want it to be.’ ”
I want to marry this man, okay? He has grown up into such an intelligent and articulate person.
Literally one of my favorite people in the movie industry. Wonderful, wonderful man.
Just added a landscape tablet version, too. In case anyone besides me wants one.
