Daniel RadcliffeDaniel Radcliffe has interesting views on celebrity involvement with charities, gay marriage, and his favorite politician.

Daniel Radcliffe has a lot to be thankful for. At merely 21, he has amassed an astounding net worth, portrayed one of the most iconic characters of all time, and frankly, he’s just getting started. He’s currently starring (and receiving rave reviews) on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and looking sharp on the cover of the April/May issue of Gotham Magazine.

However, at a recent party celebrating the cover at Salon De Ning, at the Peninsula, New York, he said that his work with the gay youth organization the Trevor Project is what he is most proud of. In fact, he is being honored by the organization this summer, as a recipient of the “Hero Award.” While he is thrilled to be recognized for his work with the organization, he is quick to point out that the real heroes are working at the call centers, providing voluntary aid and counseling. 

What impresses people most about Daniel is his devotion to the particular cause. He is not one to support a cause simply because it is trendy, as is typical in Hollywood, and his self-awareness is refreshing. “You can be perceived as jumping on a bandwagon when it comes to some issues, not that that’s a reason to put off getting involved. If there’s something that someone in the public eye is passionate about, they should do it to highlight awareness. But you mustn’t ever put yourself on any moral high ground which is what some people are in danger of doing,” he explained.
 
When it comes to gay marriage, a topic that many public figures shy away from, he is vocal and opinionated. “I’m more than happy to say I think gay marriage should be legal,” he stated, “There’s absolutely no reason why it shouldn’t be.”

When asked about  American politics, he has the most admiration for Gavin Newsom. “It’s fantastic how he has spoken out about these issues over the years. He spoke out for his city. He’s not worried what the rest of the country is doing,” Daniel remarked.

It seems like he and Gavin share the same fearlessness and desire for change.
 
A courteous and kind gentleman, Daniel is an absolute pleasure to speak with. His work stretches beyond simply cutting a few checks, and he has genuine concern and interest in his cause. His bold voice will continue to inspire other celebrities to get involved: not because it looks good, but because they are knowledgeable and actually care.

He put it terrifically, exclaiming, “If you have an articulate opinion to give, then give it.”
