Harry Potter's Got Some Real Talk for Y'All

Can you think of a celebrity that's more adorable than Daniel Radcliffe? Don't even try, because anything you say other than "no, I cannot think of a more adorable celebrity because Daniel Radcliffe is the single most adorable, wonderful, charming man in the universe" will be a lie. And to prove that, he went and dropped some knowledge to all his fellow, less adorable celebrities:

"There's certain things you can do to make it a lot easier on yourself. If you don't, for instance, go to premieres that aren't for a film you're in, or don't just turn up at other events and stuff like that, then that's going to help to not fuel the interest. Also, I don't have Twitter and I don't have Facebook, and I think that makes things a lot easier because if you go on Twitter and tell everybody what you're doing moment to moment and then claim you want a private life, then no one is going to take that request seriously."

Also, he doesn't want to hear your nonsense about how you missed out on your childhood, all you other child stars:

"When I was 18 or 19 there was definitely a level of frustration around ... I did have to think where I went more than a lot of my friends and you do get a little frustrated around that age, but ultimately it's childish, petulant - oh I want that too. People always say to me 'Do you feel like you missed out on a childhood? Do you feel like you had your childhood taken away?' And I'm like 'No, ridiculous... kids who are abused have their childhoods taken away from them'."

Now see there? Isn't he so grounded, so smart, so lovable? Don't you just want to scoop him into your arms and hug him forever? Because you really, really should.

He's completely right and he does a good job avoiding the BS.

He's one of the more level-headed sounding child-stars-grown-up I've ever heard.

Also, yes. He's adorable and I want to stick him in my pocket and take him home.
