Anti-suicide Trevor Project to honor Daniel Radcliffe
NEW YORK – Daniel Radcliffe looks forward to a tolerant world where young people grow up unaffected by differences in sexual orientation.
For the past couple of years, the “Harry Potter” star has been doing his part to make that a reality with his work with the Trevor Project, the leading organization for suicide prevention efforts among gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered youths.
For his contribution, Radcliffe is being honored with the organization’s Hero Award at a ceremony in New York in June.
"It’s fantastic," Radcliffe told The Associated Press. "The fact that they think of what I’ve done by promoting awareness of the Trevor Project itself and the issues that it works to promote and help is a great honor."
I was obsessed with Knut when he was first born and there were all of these stories about him and his relationship with his caretaker. He received worldwide attention when he “premiered” at the Berlin Zoo and I even bought the issue of Vanity Fair with him on the cover (DiCaprio who?).
He passed away at four years old, causes unknown. I’m so sad right now!
Amy Poehler has said that when shooting wrapped for Parks and Rec this past season, she treated it like a good-bye in case you didn’t get another season. Is that how you felt at the time?
Rashida Jones: Oh my God. I have to say, it was an incredibly scary experience to leave the set. I hoped we would get picked up, but we knew that even if we did, we weren’t going to see each other for seven months. I mean, I could almost be having a baby by then! We get along really well, and I would actually be devastated if we didn’t come back — and I don’t feel that way about many jobs.
