I’m not an easy person to love. There are lots of times when I’m a very good boyfriend, but there are times when I’m useless. I mean, I’m a mess around the house. I talk nonstop. I become obsessed with things.
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get [called] Harry Potter at all. Of course I do. But you know what? I’d say the split is now rather encouragingly in favour of Daniel Radcliffe, which is rather lovely. I walked past two girls on a bench the other day, and I heard them both go ‘Oh my God, it’s Daniel Radcliffe’, and every time that happens I think: ‘Yesss!’ Not because they recognize me, because they use my name.
People say to me, “I was so expecting you to be a dick.” It’s incredible when the expectations are so low. In a way it’s great, because pretty much everyone I’ve met in the last 10 years has expected me to be a complete twat. So it’s easy to exceed that. It’s not amazing to me I didn’t grow up to be a twat, because I had great people around me.
I think one of my favorite things to do is just lock myself up in a small room and listen to music and watch films for a day. Also I just like seeing my friends. We have pizza parties which means I get four friends round, we eat a pizza and we’re really lazy and we play PlayStation.
