Daniel Radcliffe Talks about Dating, Fame and Growing up Potter

Daniel Radcliffe picBeing recognized in publice and being famous isn't always fun for Daniel Radcliffe. "It's always a worry, yeah," he tells Newsweek in its new issue about dating girls who want to go out with him simply because he's the boy wizard.

"I've got pretty good instincts for people. Normally, the people who are not genuine are the ones who say, 'You know I'm not just being your friend because you're Harry Potter, right?' And it's like, 'Uh, fine, but if that's the case, why do you need to say that?'"

Daniel, 17, says the fame is odd but that it's something he doesn't have to deal every day. "I don’t really experience it on a daily basis because I’m here [filming] most days, where everyone knows me. I suppose visitors to the set sometimes will be slightly awestruck, and that’s odd for me because I know myself, and I know there’s really nothing to be awestruck about."

"So the premieres are very odd because you get out of the car and there are hundreds of people screaming your name," he says. "To you, your name doesn’t really mean anything. It’s just a noun, like “table” or something, so when suddenly people are chanting it, it’s the strangest, strangest feeling. But it’s also incredibly gratifying because you work on a film for a year and suddenly all these people come out, basically, to thank you. So it’s great."

He also tells Newsweek what it's like to hang out with his friends Rupert Grint and Emma Watson: "Rupert’s got a table-tennis table in his room—well, what hasn’t he got in his room? He’s got a dartboard, a pool table, an Xbox, and now this little infrared shooting range, which I’m very good at it. So I’m constantly in there chatting to him and using his stuff, and Emma and I have a very similar relationship to the one we had on “Azkaban,” which is more conversational."

Radcliffe began playing Potter at age 11, but he says he doesn't look back at his earlier films. "I will when I'm, like, 30 or 40, and I've got kids. I'll sit them down and say, 'See, this is what I'd done by the time I was your age. What have you done?'" Laughing, he adds, "I always forget: sarcasm doesn't work in print."

Ultimately, he says, "I would like to look back at them in 10 or 20 years and possibly cringe a little bit. I wasn't an actor when I was 11, really. I was just a kid having the time of his life."
