Dating Harry Potter isn’t easy! That’s what Daniel Radcliffe recently revealed during an interview for Parade Magazine. Although his relationship with girlfriend Rosie Coker is going well, the 22-year-old actor, who will star in the upcoming film The Woman In Black, admits that he’s not that great of a boyfriend.
“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. This year it’s fantasy football, which means Rosie has to listen to me talking 24 hours a day about this team. ‘Should I take this player out, do you think, darling?’ And she listens to it, and she loves me for my oddness, my awkwardness, all of those things that I hate about myself. She finds them cute. I guess that’s love,” he told the magazine.
Daniel also revealed that when he first started dating Rosie, whom he met on the set of Harry Potter, he leaned in for a kiss on their second date but chickened out and kissed her on her neck instead, a move he calls right out of the “Bela Lugosi Book of Woo.”
Still, despite his romantic fumbles, Daniel admits he’s a romantic and would love to get married someday:
“When growing up, I thought of marriage as being very official, drawing up a contract. It seemed slightly clinical to me. But then you meet somebody that you really love and you think, ‘Actually, I wouldn’t mind standing up in front of my friends and family and telling them how much I love you and that I want to be with you forever.‘”
