"Wanna see my magic wand?" line not working too well for Potter
Posted 09.06.07 by reelz
Apparently, being the star of one of the most popular movie franchises of all time isn't all it's cracked up to be. At least not for Daniel Radcliffe. In an interview to promote his new movie December Boys, the Harry Potter star revealed that his celebrity status has hasn't necessarily made him more successful with the ladies:
"They're very disappointed when they meet me," the 18-year-old lamented. "When you're an actor, everyone assumes that you're gonna be effortlessly cool in real life, and that you dress the way you do for premieres all the time. So when they meet all five-foot-five of me in jeans in a t-shirt, I think they're less than impressed."
Radcliffe's character in December Boys fares much better, getting some quality time -- including Radcliffe's first on-screen kiss --with Teresa Palmer (The Grudge 2, Kids in America).
Next Showing: December Boys
opens in select theaters on September 14th.
