There is a short article today in the Huffington Post Entertainment section where they talk about a recent interview with Daniel Radcliffe in which he discusses, among other things, acting in an upcoming Broadway play and being newly single. The headline for the story sums up the article pretty well.
Haha! First of all, yes. Awesome. That headline is probably in the top 600 most efficient headlines ever written. Now onto the thing he actually said:
Daniel, 21, tells UK magazine Dazed & Confused (via the Toronto Sun):
“I’ve been in relationships from the age of 14 and now I’m single. I said to a friend the other day, ‘Dude, I’m doing a show with dancers. I’ve got to be single.’ He was like, ‘Don’t sleep with anyone in your own show. That’s a mistake.’ It’s good advice. But I’m not sure I’ll stick to it.”
It is not normally charming even a little bit when a male celebrity in an interview slips in overt implications about how easy it is for him to sleep with women. But, somehow this seems not braggy. It sort of just seems down to earth and clear eyed. Yes, Daniel, you likely will have sex with a Broadway dancer; that is a very good assessment of who you are likely to have sex with.
“I refuse to lie to the press about who I am likely to have sex with.” – Daniel Radcliffe to his publicist.
