Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was secretly thrilled when the tabloids suspected he was gay.
Daniel's sexuality became fodder for the gossip columns after he shot to fame playing the boy wizard, but he wasn't fazed by the rumours and admits he enjoyed keeping fans guessing.
He says: "I had to smile when stories emerged questioning whether I was gay. Obviously I knew I wasn't but people were curiously desperate to suggest I was.
"The papers used to say I had a gay face, whatever that is, or a gay voice but it simply wasn't true... (But) when you know a gay guy has a crush on you, it's the most flattering thing."
The Woman In Black star says his relationship with girlfriend Rosie Coker has changed his reputation and dispelled the gay questions once and for all.
Daniel adds: "Now I have a girlfriend so I'm guessing everyone finally believes me... I decided a long time ago to be open about everything in my life so when photos appeared of me and Rosie together I confirmed we were dating and it put an end to the rumours."
