Daniel Radcliffe is 'absolutely' in love

Not only did the "Harry Potter" franchise bring Daniel Radcliffe unbelievable success, it also introduced him to his girlfriend, Rosie Coker.

The 22-year-old actor met Coker, a production assistant, on the set of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2." He tells Parade magazine in this weekend's issue that he's "absolutely" in love with her.

"When Rosie's here, every day seems better," he explains. "I'm not an easy person to love. There are lots of times I'm a very good boyfriend, but there are times when I'm useless."

He can become obsessive about things, Radcliffe says, and this year's example was fantasy football, "which means Rosie's listening to me talk 24 hours a day about this team." Thankfully, not only does she listen to him, but she finds his quirks endearing.

"She loves me for my oddness, my awkwardness, all of those things I hate about myself," he tells Parade. "She finds them cute. I guess that's love."

It sounds like it's a good thing he found his significant other, as Radcliffe says he's not much into dating.

"I hated dating because I was crap at it!" he admits to Parade. But Coker found his dating mishaps humorous, "so she kept coming back."

As far as his career, though, Radcliffe is bracing himself for some low points. He tells Parade he knows that the success he found with "Potter" won't sustain itself forever.

"In a way it's a great relief that I will never, ever do a film as successful as the 'Harry Potter' series," he says, joking, "but neither will anybody else. Or it will take them a long time."

The full interview with Radcliffe will be in this weekend's edition of Parade magazine.

    • This is sad...

      STD PERSON, ANNETTEBOB, SKY, WHATEVER YOUR NAME IS... you can try to pretend you're several different people if you like, changing your name as you go, but if you use the same linguistic style, (if it can be called that) and keep screaming about STD's, (your obsession with them makes it pretty obvious you've had more than your fair share, why else would you be screaming about them?) the same message everyone ignored the first several times you harped about it... everybody's going to know it's you. That's just sad.

    This is just part of an interview. It was taken out and featured because this website assumes that is what people are interested in. As he has a movie coming out soon, you are sure to see a lot more of these. Is it news? No, but that's why it's in the entertainment section :)

    This performer just spent the past few years in the theatre during his downtime from his multi-million dollar movie franchise, singing and dancing in a splashy musical, and running around completely naked in an edgy revival. This article looks a lot like a fake news item that publicists use to feed misleading information to the public about a young superstar's love life and orientation. It's very common in the movie and pop/rock music wings of the entertainment business. In theatre and serious music, however, not so. We can only speculate, but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

    For the people who made ugly remarks about him and his girlfriend, if you do not like him... why bother reading the article, and then commenting on it. It just seems like a huge waste of time. Your comments are silly and childish, and many do not make any sense at all.

    there are so many things you wrote I question. First, u know it for a fact? Is that because u have a std? They suffer the same as the immoral person that is poor. are u saying that the poor are immoral? u'd better take that head of yours out of your butt. no wonder your view is so full of sh!t.

      What are you talking about? How many celebrities do you know personally? Why does everyone always assume that just because a celebrity is dating someone, they must be sleeping together? If I slept with every person I ever dated, my penis would have fallen off by now due to overuse. Celebrities are a lot like the rest of us, whether you like it or not. It's just that their occupations put them in the spotlight and draw a lot of attention and criticism from haters like you. Jealous much?

      "u", "luvs", "lmao"..........it is truly amazing how stupid people are becoming. Its almost as if some people are born with only half a brain. Anyone who makes a comment using any of the above, should be completely embarrassed and make sure you dont lose your job at the gas station, its all you have to look forward to.

    • Jay

      @TMJ I do agree with you, but next time you are going to criticize someone for their spelling or choice of words, please use punctuation! It's "don't" with an apostrophe, and "its" should have been "it's" (also with an apostrophe) since it is a contraction of "it is".

      The only thing more amazing than "how stupid people are coming" is how rude, self-important, and hyper-critical other people are becoming. TMJ, nobody asked you to proofread this page, so stfu and go post on the Meriam Webster site. Thanks!
