“I’m an atheist, but I’m very relaxed about it. I don’t preach my atheism, but I have a huge amount of respect for people like Richard Dawkins who do.”

Daniel Radcliffe was born in West London to a Jewish mother and a Protestant father, but there was little religion within Radcliffe’s home. Radcliffe is a militant atheist, so when he was asked what about his faith, he responded, “I have a lot of faith in my generation. I have to. We have to develop our own moral system.”

Radcliffe has also been an adamant defender of gay rights and even advocated for curriculum in public schools about the nuances of gay and straight in relationships.
