Daniel Radcliffe may still be most famous for playing Harry Potter, but he definitely has an edgy side.

Dan got nude on stage for
Equus — where he had really close relationships with horses — and he plays poet Allen Ginsberg in the new film Kill Your Darlings, during which he is shown having sexy time with men. The guy’s just comfortable in his own skin — but apparently not everyone is comfortable with his uninhibited acting.

Daniel, 23, told MTV News he doesn’t understand why people seem fixated on the gay sex scenes. “For me, there’s something very strange about that because we see straight sex scenes all the time,” Daniel said (via Gossip Cop). “We’ve seen gay sex scenes before. And I don’t know why a gay sex scene should be any more shocking than a straight sex scene. Or both of them are equally un-shocking.” He was especially surprised to have people asking him questions about the gay sex scenes as if they were more shocking than what he was doing in Equus.

It does seem like everything after Equus should pale in comparison. But for some people, Daniel will always be Harry and they’ll be “shocked” whenever he veers from that path.
