Daniel is fed up of having his private life written about and insists he barely even mentions what has happened in between his sheets.

The British actor spoke to us at the first annual IvyConnect’s Innovator Film Award for Film presented by Cadillac in LA.

Recently Daniel, 25, gave an interview talking about losing his virginity and even having sex when drunk. In the past he has spoken about gay sex scenes and baring all on stage.

But when asked why he is open about his love life, he reacted: “I am not at all.

“I’m not at all. People ask me about it and I try and shut the conversation down as much as I can. I’m not open about my love life whatsoever.”

When asked about how a recent piece in Elle Magazine had him talk about losing his virginity, animated Daniel remarked: “They asked me about that, and I gave a response. And then other people were saying, ‘you’re really open about losing your virginity.’ And I was like, ‘No, I wasn’t. And you don’t even know if I’m telling you the truth about it, so there!”

Daniel also ducked answering whether girlfriend Erin Drake gets annoyed annoyed talking about his intimate life so openly.

However the Harry Potter star replied: “As I said, I’m not open about it. So let’s leave it there.”
Daniel’s animated response came in the wake of him telling Elle magazine about losing his virginity “I’m one of the few people who seem to have had a really good first time.”It was with somebody I’d gotten to know well. I’m happy to say I’ve had a lot better sex since then.

“But it wasn’t as horrendously embarrassing as a lot of other people’s were, like my friend who got drunk and did it with a stranger under a bridge.

The star – who admitted to drink problems in the past – also said drunk sex was not his forte:”For some people sex might be better drunk. But for me and the person I’m doing it with it’s much better sober.”

Daniel presented the award to business whizz Tiffany Pham at the Landmark Theater in LA before ducking past tens of fans to introduce his new latest project What If.

IvyConnect is the world’s fastest growing social incubator bringing together remarkable entrepreneurs, artists and innovators, The Ivy Innovator Awards were designed to inspire and support the next generation of leading minds in Film, Technology, and Design.

Daniel’s What If project had its world premiere at The Toronto Film Festival, and subsequently won Best Adapted Screenplay with a nomination for Best Motion Picture at the Genie Awards (Canadian version of the “Oscars”).
