Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe loves the fact that people think he's not straight and regularly gets homosexual pals to check gay websites to search for gossip about him.

The 19-year-old admits that strangers often think he's gay because of his camp personality and isn't fazed by the comments at all, reports imdb.com.

He, however, insists he is so thrilled to be mistaken as homosexual that he urges his friends to dig up gay gossip about him on community blogs.

"It's wonderful. I grew up around gay people my entire life, basically, that's possibly why I'm quite camp, and some people think I'm gay when I meet them, which I think is awesome," he said.

"It's always good to keep them guessing. I don't go on any blogs or chats or anything, but my friends are demons for them, and apparently someone said 'Daniel Radcliffe is gay. He's got a gay face'," he added.
