When I get into trouble at school I'd like to take an invisibility cloak, drape it over me and sneak out the door. Or I'd like to have a 3 headed-dog because then no one would argue with me.— Daniel Radcliffe
The most pioneering Daniel Radcliffe quotes that will inspire your inner self
I meet hundreds of people, and I'm not going to remember them.
But every single one of them will remember their interaction with me.
I think any actor worth their salt wants to show as much versatility as they possibly can.
If I was left to my own devices, you would see about ten T-shirts in rotation with maybe a few nice pairs of jeans - but I also like to look good. I like feeling really well put together, I just don't have the aptitude and the knowledge to do that.
My idea of relaxation is not lying down by a beach.
I have to move around, do stuff. Though I'm a massive quiz show person.
I've never been one of the cool people at school, but then again, I don't get the people who are cool. It's not that I don't like them, it's just that they don't interest me.
I'm very comfortable discussing my personal life, because it's so boring.
I met Elijah Wood once, I met Peter Jackson, I met Orlando Bloom, and they're all really cool.
I think one of my favorite things to do is just lock myself up in a small room and listen to music and watch films for a day. Also I just like seeing my friends. We have pizza parties which means I get four friends round, we eat a pizza and we're really lazy and we play PlayStation.
There's no shame in enjoying the quiet life.
I used to joke I was a point-and-click actor.
My whole process has been about trusting your instincts and hitting your mark.
I used to be self conscious about my height, but then I thought, f*** that, I'm Harry Potter.
Working hard is important. But there is something that matters even more, believing in yourself.
There's never enough time to do nothing!
Personally, I prefer the dark side.
The most wonderful thing I hear is people coming up and saying 'Thank you for my childhood', which still blows my mind but is very sweet.
I'm possibly a very morbid person but I think about death a lot.
I don't want to say I'll never play someone with a cockney accent, but I think I would be irritated by me doing it.
And I'm slightly in love with Scarlett Johansson: she's just stunning.
And she's bright, which is incredibly sexy.
Stage is much more intimidating than going before the cameras, because you can really screw up, and can't do a retake.
There is something inherently valuable about being a misfit.
It's not to say that every person who has artistic talent was a social outcast, but there is definitely a value for identifying yourself differently and being proud that you are different.
The only thing I can think of is my favorite album at the moment by this guy called Father John Misty, and the album is called I Love You, Honeybear. It's just brilliant. It's the album I'm currently obsessed with. It is original, and the lyrics are fantastic and [it's] brilliant. So that's blowing me away.
The Master and Margarita is my favorite.
To me it’s the greatest exploration of the human imagination.
I love coming home to somebody, I love being in a relationship.
There's no shame in enjoying a quiet life.
And that's been the realization of the past few years for me.
I think part of me would love to play a drag queen, just because it would be an excuse to wear loads of eye makeup.
Just keep acting is my plan, I just want to keep going for as long as I can.
I've had a fantastic time on Potter, I will be very sad to leave it because every time I look back on one of these films, every scene I watch will be forever linked to a memory of what happened that day or something that was happening around that time in my life.
England is my home. London is my home. New York feels like, if I have to spend a year living in an unfamiliar city, this is a pretty lovely one to spend a year in, but I will be going home at the end of it, certainly.
I am very critical! I hate watching myself but I know I have to because I'm going to be asked so I need to have some sort of semblance of what the films with me are like. But it's not an enjoyable experience watching yourself. I hate it less than I used to but I still don't enjoy it.
You don't have to be gay to be a supporter- you just have to be a human.
I'll say American for now. I really have no preference, though. Nationality is nothing. It's all about the girl - but she has to be curvy!
Some people think I am gay, which I think is awesome.
I was in the bath at the time, and my dad came running in and said, 'Guess who they want to play Harry Potter!?' and I started to cry. It was probably the best moment of my life.
I grew up around gay people my entire life, basically, that’s possibly why I’m quite camp, and some people think I’m gay when I meet them, which I think is awesome. It’s always good to keep them guessing.
Yes, gay marriage is about symbolically blessing a relationship, but the larger issue is about transmitting a fundamental message about equality. Gay people should have equality in law everywhere.
The real challenge of acting for me, I suppose, is just getting to know a character very, very well and just applying what I know about them to every single scene. That's what it can be broken down to.
I'm getting better now, but I used to be incredibly awkward with girls.
I think any guy who says 'I've never had an awkward moment with a girl' is a liar.
If I die on a film set when I'm 80, I'll be happy with that.
What I learned is that acting is to a large extent about trying to stave off self-doubt long enough to be natural and real onstage.
I'm not an easy person to love. There are lots of times when I'm a very good boyfriend, but there are times when I'm useless. I mean, I'm a mess around the house. I talk nonstop. I become obsessed with things.
The nerds are the ones that make the films and do loads of other really cool stuff in their life.
I just moved into the world of Xbox Live.
And I've discovered that everyone on the Internet is a lot better than me. I spent half an hour the other day designing a boxer, and I got knocked out twice in the first round.
I'm also a fan of ridiculously coloured and patterned socks.
Fans are really important for me. And if they take pains to write me, it's the minimum that I answer myself.
The thought of dancing scared me. A lot. Because I have absolutely no aptitude for it.
I will never, ever do a film as successful as the Harry Potter series. But neither will anyone else.
I definitely think the idea of friend zone is just men going, 'This woman won't have sex with me.'
I think Harry Potter's very important.
Every opportunity I will get for the rest of my life, I would not have got if it wasn't for Harry Potter. And it would be height of ingratitude if I was ever anything but proud to be associated with these films.
I love just going out and sitting down in the park along with the thousands of other people who apparently have no work to do during the day. People come up to me, but they are generally really nice. New York makes it easier, for me at least. People manage to be enthusiastic and sort of sane at the same time. And that’s lovely.
I've always thought that as long as directors and casting directors don't see me as just Harry Potter, I'll be OK. People have shown a lot of faith in me, and I owe them a huge debt. They're letting me prove that I'm serious about this.
