Daniel‘s former Kill Your Darlings co-star Dane DeHaan, Lydia Hearst, and Nolan Gerard Funk were also spotted showing their support at the premiere.

Daniel recently chatted about being labeled an unconventional romantic lead during a press interview for Horns.

“Around the time of rom com What If coming out, a lot of people were saying: ‘You’re really an unconventional romantic lead,’” Daniel shared to the AP. “And so eventually I got bored of hearing that and kind of picked someone up on it, so I was like ‘What about me is unconventional, exactly? Like, tell me.’ And she said, ‘Well, I think it’s probably the fact that you know, we associated you with playing Harry, the young boy wizard.’”

He added, “My immediate response to that was: ‘Well, the male population had no problem sexualizing Emma Watson immediately.’” Watch the video below!

    I think he’s unconventional because he’s short. Not my cup of tea.

  • guestJJ

    Right, because short people don’t fall in love so they shouldn’t be represented in romantic movies!
    The reason you are attracted to people depending on their heights says a lot…
    His answer was perfect.

    Exactly my point, thanks.
