Harry Potter Disgusted by Rick Perry’s ‘Homophobic’ Views, Brokeback Mountain Jacket

Daniel Radcliffe, currently at a theater near you in The Woman in Black but best known as the star of the Harry Potter films, gave an interview to the UK gay magazine Attitude, which the UK newspaper The Guardian recaps.

In it, in addition to declaring that he’s a “militant atheist,” he decries the GOP presidential hopefuls, especially Gov. Rick Perry:

He went on to say that he has been “disgusted, amazed, stunned” by candidates seeking the Republican presidential nomination, such as Rick Santorum or Michele Bachmann, who have been openly hostile to gay rights.

“But they disgusted me less than candidates like Rick Perry, who made that ridiculous advert wearing ‘the Brokeback jacket’, and I think pretend to be homophobic just to win votes.”

You remember the ad he’s talking about, right?
