Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has millions of girls around the world swooning over him - but he's just won over gay men too!

The 20-year-old multi millionaire - who says he's straight - told gay magazine Attitude that he hates anyone with a homophobic attitude.

The Half Blood Prince star also gives an interesting insight into how his parents raised him-- surrounded by their own gay friends.

"I just loathe homophobia. It's just disgusting and animal and stupid and it's just thick people who can't get heir heads around it and are just scared," said Radcliffe. "I grew up around gay people entirely.  I was the only child in my class who had an experience of homosexuality or anything like that."

The young star - who is currently dating actress Laura O'Toole - also revealed that he will not be supporting either the Conservative or ruling Labour party at the forthcoming election and that he doesn't trust current British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

He said: "I rather like Nick Clegg - at the next election I will almost certainly vote Liberal Democrat. If all the people that voted for them liked them you could change politics and we could have a proper three party system.

Comic Paul Merton said, and I agree with him, it's a tragedy that this man (Brown) has waited all his life to do this job - and now he finds out he cannot do it. I don't like the new Labour thing. I never experienced the optimism of New Labour, I've only seen the bad years."

Radcliffe wasn't anymore enthusiastic about Conservative leader David Cameron who is being tipped to be Britain's next leader.  "No, no, no, no, no! David Cameron is barely distinguishable from Tony Blair."
