Would Daniel Radcliffe’s “aw-shucks” act work on you?


As some of you know, Daniel Radcliffe loves America, and he adores Broadway. So for one of his first post-Potter career moves, Dan is returning to the stage, taking the lead in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. To celebrate, Daniel was photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue, and Vogue sent us this lovely video interview:

My favorite part is when Dan goes over to the giantess models and introduces himself, shaking all of their hands politely, and then telling the interviewer how gorgeous all the models are. Dan is so wonderful that way – you’d think to yourself “Wow, he’s a song-and-dance man on Broadway, he must be a confirmed bachelor” and then you realize that he must get laid like crazy. He’s so sweet and unassuming, and I have to admit, I totally would. His act would totally work on me. I love him.

    Works like a charm- I would fall like a ton of bricks. And you get the impression he LOVES women- which is ultimate catnip to shelines.

  2. Mshuffleupagus says:

    I would do anything for and to Daniel Radcliffe. As long as calls me Hermione in bed.

  3. Happymom says:

    These are quotes from him back in December:
    “I said to a friend the other day, ‘Dude, I’m doing a show with dancers.

    I’ve got to be single,’” Radcliffe told the style magazine. “He was like, ‘Don’t sleep with anyone in your show. That’s a mistake.’ It’s good advice. But I’m not sure I’ll stick to it.”

    He’s adorable-but I’ll let my 13 yo crush on him-it’s creepy for me to lust for him too.

  4. Anna says:

    He’s so tiny! I want to put him in my pocket!

  5. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Love him but he’s not bad enough for me.

  6. Aly says:

    I love him too, but not in a tie me up and cover me with whip cream way.

  7. Quest says:

    Oh Daniel, you make me feel so naughty. ITA with Mshuffleupagus and do anything but my wish includes the Harry Porter Robe.

    @Happymom – I feel creepy to but they say after 12 (years) is lunch (joking)

  8. esblondie says:

    I love love love him. I’m probably old enough to be his mother, and normally always go for older guys. But Daniel, please be mine.

  9. photo jojo says:

    Count me in the “He could be my kid” group, but also count me in the “couldn’t care less, would totally hit it” group.

  10. Cheyenne says:

    Awww, he’s so cute! Too bad he’s so dang short…

  11. KB_explosion says:

    he’s little, he’s into musical theatre, he’s an advocate for lgbti youth, and he’s sweet as pie.

    i’d hit that in a wizard hat

  12. Brittany says:

    I bet he’s amazing in bed.

  13. sarahk says:

    Oh hell yes. Yes.

  14. khaveman says:

    He’s really a great person. Side note — that shot by Annie Leibovitz is breathtaking. And yes, I wouldn’t kick him out of bed.

  15. Bodhi says:

    In a heartbeat!

  16. Isa says:

    Yes, it would. He has an unassuming confidence. And he seems so comfortable in his own skin. I love that he stands up for the gay community. Melts my heart.

  17. Sparkly says:

    I got to meet him briefly in NYC. I don’t think it’s an act. He’s just charming.

  18. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I’ll bite: No.

    Puberty ladies, get with it.

  19. flourpot says:

    As much as I’d like to agree with you all that he’s great in bed, I think more probably … ok, I agree. He’s probably a tiger. Grrr.

  20. eternalcanadian says:

    Haha, I’m such a perv I’d tie up Daniel and have my way with him. :P

  21. Marianne says:

    Does anyone think he kind of looks like Elijah Wood in this pic?

  22. truthzbetta says:

    This is about as straight as he can get, isn’t it.

    This is one happy, harmless fruity pebble, not that there’s anything wrong with that. I still think the dancers he dreams of look like him in the top shot.

    But dream on ladies, Ricky Martin says you can fantasize about him too.

  23. Allison says:

    I fucking love this man.

    Ever since 6th grade when the 1st Harry Potter movie came out and my wall was 100% covered in posters of him. And my love has only grown since, haha.

    I’m SO happy with how he turned out. He didn’t turn into some douchey full-of-himself guy. The complete opposite happened! What a wonderful guy.

  24. Brittney says:

    @ truthzbetta — He’s quite an outspoken advocate for the gay/lesbian cause and for equal marriage rights. I know there’s a stigma in Hollywood, but there’s not one on Broadway, and I’d like to think that when he says he’s straight, he’s being honest.

  25. Jilly Bean says:

    WOW best comment ever.. that one about shagging DR only if he calls you Hermione in bed… that was awesome!! that should be on a Tshirt

  26. Rasputina says:

    Oh my God he’s such a pocket boy. I’d sure as hell carry that tiny package of British naughtiness around with me all day. And maybe cut a small hole in my pocket so we could……


  27. Andie says:

    I adore Daniel – but in a more motherly than lustful way. I still think of him as that cute 11 year old boy in the first Harry Potter films. He was brilliant in that film about Rudyard Kipling’s son who goes off to fight World War One, even though he’s too young and can barely see.

  28. allie says:

    In a heartbeat.

  29. Hakura says:

    I never found Daniel the least bit attractive during his Harry Potter years… but since getting to see him in interviews, I have to admit, he could totally get to me too. He’s terribly cute when you see him out of ‘still’ pictures.

    My favorite was when I saw an interview in which he & Tom Felton talked about a scene where Harry & Draco were all up in each other’s space for a scene. How they felt like they were going to ‘kiss’ or something.

    But unlike how I think a lot of (straight) male actors would react, they found it amusing (mentioning their awareness of Harry/Draco fanfiction), instead of threatening to their masculinity. xD

    Of course I sometimes wonder if he is a straight actor, but that’s the vibe I get from him.
