There is a great (and pretty lengthy) interview in FilmStar magazine with Daniel Radcliffe; here’s a couple of excerpts:
FS: Have things changed for you since doing Equus?
DR: Yes, I think they have slightly. Hopefully, that it is the beginning of a quite a long proces of being seen in something other than Harry, which is great. Harry is brilliamnt and I enjoy playing him, but obviously I do want to open myself up to something else other than that character. And yes, Equus did seem to mark a bit of a change- everybody was expecting and hoping that I’d fail, and as I didn’t, it sightly compounded that bizarre choice!
On what he does in his free time
FS: What about going out? What kind of things do you like to do?
DR: I like karaoke. I always try and do “Rock’n'Roll Suicide” by David Bowie. God, I blew them away at the Equus wrap party! They were going to have karaoke all night and I’d been saying, “No, no way. I’d rather eat my young. I am not going ot get on stage and do it tonight.” But then, not even that late, about 11 o’clock, Will Kemp, who was playing one of the show’s horses, came up to me and said, “Come on” And I said , “Fine, all right. You’ve been on at me all night.” And I did it, and I really love it. I sang three songs. They couldn’t get me down.
On being a ladies’ man (or not)
FS: As you get older, are you becoming more aware of being considered a lust object?
DR: The lust thing generally stops when they meet me, when they talk to me, because I’m not a particularly sexy person to talk to. I don’t think I’m a sexy person to look at- some people do, but it’s when you talk to me that I’m NOT cool. I have a cool taste in music, I think; ex-girlfriends have told me that. That’s quite sexy. But they are EX-girlfriends. Also, I like werid things. I lik stupid random facts. I like trivia. I like conversation. I’m crap at that sort of cool small talk. I’m not good at chit-chat. I can’t do pick up lines. I know a guy who would lower his voice when he met girls. It pissed me off. I’d be like, “What sort of dick are you?” But he got loads of girls, so who had the last laugh?
Seriously, it’s a GREAT interview – make sure you head over and read it!
