PARADE magazine released a video interview and photoshoot with Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe. Fresh off Broadway as leading man J. Pierrepont Finch in the musical hit How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Dan is now ready to start the promotions for his soon-to-be-released film, The Woman in Black, which makes it's debut on February 3rd in theaters.
During the interview with PARADE Dan discussed many subjects including marriage, poetry, homophobia, and on giving back:
"I got paid so well for doing the 'Harry Potter' films, it's ridiculous. If somebody asked me, 'Did you think you deserve that money?' No, of course I didn't. 'But would you have taken it anyway?' Of course. I happened to have found this industry where people get paid stupid amounts of money. That's the reality. I feel almost guilty for having done so well out of 'Potter.' But there's a moral imperative to help others. You know, the fact that I wake up in my lovely apartment in New York and get to stroll down here to do a couple of shows, and there is somebody in some country waking up wondering where he's going to live that week - it's a horrendous feeling. There is a sense that you have to do something. I feel Brad Pitt would agree that the way to help is to really get behind things that you're passionate about, like The Trevor Project. You have to give back"
They make a fuss about Hogsmeade, but I assure you, Harry, it's not all it's cracked up to be. All right, the sweetshop's rather good, and Zonko's Joke Shop is frankly dangerous, and yes, the Shrieking Shack's always worth a visit, but really, Harry, apart from that you're not missing anything.
