Daniel Radcliffe’s leathery premiere look: James Dean cool or Fonzie cheese?

These are some new photos of Daniel Radcliffe at the premiere of his film, The Lady In Black. Look… I love DanRad. I think he’s funny, charming, bright, cool and interesting. I find myself attracted to him just because of his personality, and because I personally like a 1970s-style natural bush, and I get the feeling that Daniel does too. All of that being said, this is an AWFUL look for Daniel. I get the feeling that he’s really trying to be “cool” in a James Dean way, and it just looks like a really cheesy costume. Don’t make me feel sorry for you, Daniel! Just wear a suit to your premieres, for the love of God. This leather jacket makes him look like a really young, really short little kid who just saw Rebel Without A Cause for the first time. Oh, and Daniel needs to pluck his eyebrows. They’re getting into Lily Collins territory.

Guess who else showed up at the premiere? DanRad’s friend Tom Felton. Damn it, Felton looks HOT. He’s been spending more time in America’s beaches, getting some color and working a breezier style. I can’t say that I like his outfit, but at least Felton looks like he didn’t spend an hour on it. Tom Felton: I would hit it. Hard.

    Ugh I can’t stand Tom Felton’s moustache.

    I’m not physically attracted to DanRad, although I adore him and find him cute as a button. I think he looks good here though.
    Felton looks like he just rolled out of bed. I guess that could be good or bad, but I didn’t mean it as a compliment.

    • originalone says:

      Ah, Dan is looking more Fonz (ehhhhh) than James Dean, and I like it!

      I mean, here is a rich dude, a short rich dude, who has it all, is supremely nice, very cool about lady-biscuit grooming, but has a cooky sense of style. That he can afford to have.

      Still love me some DanRad. And yeah, I wouldn’t hit the Felton dong, just the cold-husky eyes freak me out. Same with the supposed Sexiest Man Alive Brad Cooper. Cold husky eyes. Cannot.

    • podzol says:

      Add me to the “eeesh, NO Felton” look.

      Oh, Kaiser, DanRad’s caterpillars are objectively so much worse than Collins, let’s be truthful 🙂 But I like the lad, so will restrain from commenting on his outfit. Loved his appearance on Ferguson, he’s such an earnest good kid.

    • NinaG says:

      I agree, DanRad is young he looks like a cute “hipster”! Not cheesy to me at all.

  3. Eleonor says:

    Dan Rad..I love you, but that pijiama shirt under the leather jacket…pleaseee.

  4. Girl says:

    I agree. It looks too casual for the premier of his movie too. I’d expect a suit. Certainly not this.

  5. Samigirl says:

    Is it weird that I’m crazy attracted to Man-Cardigans? Tom Felton, you could slytherin my house any day 😉

    • Kara Ann says:

      Ooooooh wee, I love me a good man cardigan! I’ll even admit to a penchant for sweater vests. Don’t judge me people, I can’t help it!

  6. Lindy says:

    Too casual for an event like this. Also, I think if he had gone with tousled hair instead of the slicker combed over style it would have helped with the whole Fonz lookalike problem.

    Also, Felton is not usually my style but he’s looking hot in a dirty sexy way!

  7. Moi says:

    Love him. Can’t wait to see the movie.

  8. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    I actually don’t mind the outfit. He almost pulls it off. I mean, he aint James Dean cool by any means, but he doesn’t look douchy either.

  9. WaywardGirl says:

    I love Dan Rad. He was on Craig Ferguson and he was a riot. So cute! Don’t care for the jacket, but whatevs, who cares 😛

    Daniel is definitely the type of guy I am into in real life. I fall for nerdy type of guys who aren’t Brad Pitt hot but who are cute, smart, funny, and kind. Even if he wasn’t a millionaire I would totally date him if I had met him at university or through friends. Since he is a nice guy and it shows through his personality and demeanor, I think he can pull of this look without appearing ridiculous or douchy. Yeah, he would’ve looked better in a suit but I’ll give him a pass this time.

  11. lioness says:

    Why the hate on the eyebrows (in general)? We get pissed when people turn into plastic dolls and then we go on and on about how natural looks suck. Conflicting messages..

    • Sunshine says:

      Well, I can’t speak for anyone else but too bushy eyebrows creep me out big time. They look like caterpillars and it’s just disturbing. He does seem like a sweet kid though, now if he could just tame those things….

  12. Anastasia says:

    He’s young, he’s just trying to look young, too. But yeah, a sharp suit would have been much better. He looks quite nice in a suit.

    I’m old enough to be mom to both these guys, but I have to admit to doing a double take over Malfoy up there. Wowza, I like how he’s looking! (And now I grossed myself out.)

    • Kara Ann says:

      No, Anastasia, I will not allow you to be grossed out!! Embrace the fact that you will most likely never meet these kids in real life so therefore….head out to Fantasy Island where you can be age appropriate and they can be as emotionally mature as you like…then ENJOY!!!

  13. Franny says:

    How dare you tell someone to pluck their eyebrows! Why must we conform to society’s expectations even while wearing the newest leather jacket with an expensive haircut?!

    //sarcasm. removing the unibrow is for everyone!

  14. Little Darling says:

    Fonzie is eternally cool in my book, and the more and more I read about Dan Rad the more I fall for him. He’s so, so, SO cool. Much cooler than I ever would have expected him to be, and I want more interviews, more shortness, more glib comments about pubic hair, more self deprecating humor about himself.

    He can do no wrong in my book, I would wear flats forever to get near his unmanicured bush!!!

  15. Franny says:

    lolz at the girl on the left side of first picture.

  16. Reece says:

    Not quite Fonzie just not good. Still love me some Dan though. One bad clothing choice doesn’t warrant an eyeroll.

  17. Darla says:

    The jacket is fine. It’s the sweater under it that surprisingly reminds me of Mr. Cosby… albeit a chic Mr. Cosby.

  18. Booboocita says:

    And best of all, the NYTimes says nice things about the new movie and his performance.

  19. Alice says:

    It’s The Woman in Black. Radcliffe does look like a kid in a halloween costume, thought Felton looks hot, although his outfit is no better than Radcliffe’s.

  20. Laura says:

    TOM FELTON yay! I’ve had the hots for him for about… 8 years now? It’s ridiculous.

  21. Alex says:

    They both look hot, why do they have such gorgeous eyes?!

  22. jojo says:

    Uhhhhm,can anyone please tell me what the hell is happening on that first pic? WTF is up with those girls? did they have actual zombies at the premiere? They are scarying me, I really don’t want to see The Lady in Black now. I think if you do watch it, you become a crazy teenage girl zombie with crazy eyes
