Daniel Radcliffe Comes Out: I'm Single!

by at . Comments

So much for those Olive Uniacke rumors.

Despite being romantically linked to that British party girl, the Harry Potter star tells the latest issue of Out that he's single.

"I was in a relationship with somebody for just about three years, and we broke up just shortly before we hit that mark. But [the breakup] was very amicable. At the moment, I’m just being single and running around chasing girls," Radcliffe said, laughing.

Elsewhere in the interview, Radcliffe makes it clear why he's the rare child star unaffected by his early fame. How many people his age in general would have the following, mature viewpoints on gay marriage, politics and Hollywood?

On Nick Clegg, England's the Deputy Prime Minister: I’m a very big fan. I’ve actually met him, and I have to say he’s a really, really good man. I don’t agree with everything he says, but of all the party leaders, he was the one I voted for. I thought he was a great speaker and very charismatic and very statesmanlike.

And I’m glad that he is still in a prominent position in British politics because I think he could make a great contribution. He comes from absolutely the right place in terms of what his values are.

On the growing acceptance of alternative lifestyles: I think that with every generation, people become more open to those ideas and more aware and more educated. But it’s a really, really slow process. If you take any family with parents who are bringing their kids up in a narrow-minded way that includes homophobia, it will take a very profound moment of realization to change those deep-seated views.

On recently visiting Hollywood... for the first time: People seem to have a very bizarre perception of me - that I’m a Hollywood actor. I don’t think of myself that way. And when I was out there and telling people it was pretty much my first trip, jaws just hit the floor. They were looking at me like I had two heads.

Expect to hear a lot more from Radcliffe as he continues publicity for the November 19 release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
