danile radcliffeHarry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has dismissed rumours about his sexuality, and declared: "I''m not gay."

The actor, 20, who appeared nude in the West End stage play Equus, has been at the centre of gay rumors for some time now, reports The Sun.

But, while in an interview with music channel MTV in the US, he has put an end to the speculation, by saying: "If people want to say that, they can. I''m not. I''m straight."

He added: "My favourite thing I saw was a guy on the internet who said, ''Of course he''s gay - he''s got a gay face,'' which I thought was kind of an odd thing to say anyway.

"A gay face? That''s a very worrying thing, like they have sat at home with pictures of me next to other famous gay folks."

Daniel is reported to have recently made a "major donation" to an American charity that fights intolerance of gay men, lesbians and bisexuals.

In a past interview, he said: "Some people think I am gay, which I think is awesome."
