Dan has spoken to Out Magazine about his role as Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, explaining that the film is “about young love in whatever form it takes”, and that they were careful to make sure there was no distinctions between how heterosexual and homosexual people fall in love.
“The relationship between Allen [Ginsberg] and Lucien [Carr], I think is incredibly universal—you meet somebody who is far more confident, far more charismatic, and seemingly more intelligent than you, and you completely fall in love with them, and then you actually outgrow them, and they come to resent you for it. I think that’s the whole point of relationships is that they do absolutely move you on as a person, and you learn things about yourself as a person, things you like and don’t like, and things you can do better next time you are with somebody.”
