Daniel Radcliffe is known for speaking his mind and hasn’t held back when it comes to standing up for equal rights and same-sex marriage.

In a recent interview with Attitude UK magazine’s March 2012 issue, “The Woman in Black” actor didn’t remain mum on the controversial topic of gay rights.

“The ultimate reason gay marriage should be legalized everywhere is because, as a kid, you look to your mum and dad and they’re married; then you look at the gay couple who’ve been together for the same amount of time, but because they can’t get married their relationship doesn’t seem the same.

“Yes, gay marriage is about symbolically blessing a relationship, but the larger issue is about transmitting a fundamental message about equality. Gay people should have equality in law everywhere,” the actor said.

Many celebrities have opened up this week on where they stand with same-sex marriage, due to the fact that Prop 8 was ruled unconstitutional in California this week, so it’s really no surprise to hear Radcliffe’s point of view.

He is also an avid supporter for The Trevor Project and made a bet with Ellen DeGeneres over the Super Bowl where either one would have to donate $5,000 to the organization.

The 22-year-old actor even revealed what type of man he would go for if he were gay. “This year I have a talent crush on Ryan Gosling. I think he’s fantastic and . . . (ahem) you know he’d be nice afterwards. He seems smart. If I was gay, I would go for a smart man.”

Continuing with his interview, Radcliffe also discussed teen suicide. “It’s not surprising when you consider how accessible a bullying victim is now. You used to be able to escape at the end of a day: now you can be hunted by mobile phone, Facebook, Twitter. It’s terrifying.”

Besides being looked up to as “Harry Potter,” Radcliffe is a great role model and inspiration for youth and as he said so eloquently about sexuality, “Don’t define as straight or gay, define yourself as people and help another person if they’re in trouble.”
