People are constantly dying, but when an actor you let into your home passes away, it always feels like death is even more apparent. For Radcliffe, the passing of his Harry Potter co-star, Alan Rickman, was obviously a huge blow. After the monumental actor's passing, Radcliffe penned a heartfelt tribute to Rickman highlighting Rickman's excellent qualities, and it showed Daniel's desire to always better himself through his peers.
He wrote: "As an actor he was one of the first of the adults on Potter to treat me like a peer rather than a child. Working with him at such a formative age was incredibly important and I will carry the lessons he taught me for the rest of my life and career. Film sets and theatre stages are all far poorer for the loss of this great actor and man."
He Acts Very Chill About His Wealth
After spending a decade as Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe amassed a fortune of £74m, so he doesn't really need to do anything other than count it and throw it at people. But because he's the best, he just ignores it, as he told the Belfast Telegraph: "I don't really do anything with my money. I'm very grateful for it, because having money means you don't have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have. It also gives me immense freedom, career-wise."
The Man Loves To Write Poetry - A Lot Of It
As if you didn't already love Daniel Radcliffe enough, did you know he's been secretly publishing poetry under a pen name since he was 16? Don't you love him even more? Are you figuring out how to drop references to Daniil Kharms into your next run in with the ex-wizard?
In an interview with Elle, he explained that he wrote more poetry in his late teens: "I was writing poetry more consistently when I was 16 to 19 or 20. In that period I would have written a lot of love poems. I have none that I want to see in print on the Internet forever." Sure you were Danny, sure you were.
He's Best Friends With His Girlfriend
Ugh, stop being such a cool dude, Dan. While discussing relationships, he spoke about how the most important thing to him is that he's friends with the person he's going to spend the rest of his life with as opposed to mortal enemies who just want to bang their bods together.
"I think that's the kind of relationship I always aspire to have with someone I'm in a relationship with," said Radcliffe. "You want that person to be your best friend. In the case of Erin, we definitely are."
The fact that he's emotionally mature enough to realize that he's best friends with his significant other is too much to handle; he needs to kick someone off a bike or something.
