Daniel Radcliffe thinks people view him as a feminist.
The Harry Potter famed actor insists upon the fact that he is well versed in the art of appreciating women, but he also feels that there is an "absolute dearth of roles" for women in the entertainment industry.
"It's sad that people are having to come out as feminist," said Daniel.
He further added, "I thought we'd have got beyond this point. I would hope it would be assumed of me that I was one. You see amazing male characters, and there is an absolute dearth of roles for women."
However, the 27-year-old star had earlier admitted that he "naively thought" there was no gender equality issue prevailing in Hollywood.
"It is nuts to me. I'm incredibly glad gender equality has come up because I had just f***ing naively thought this was not an issue any more because how can this still be happening?" he added.
"It's crazy. It is definitely the time for our industry to step up. Especially if we want to pride ourselves on being a liberal, progressive industry then you can't be doing that." Daniel said further.
That was not all, Daniel was "shocked" to know that men and women are still paid differently for the similar roles in movies, in Hollywood.
