Daniel Radcliffe: I'm a Short Little Nerd

With 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2' just a week away from opening in theaters, Daniel Radcliffe is talking up a storm about his life, the movies and being a sex symbol.

Daniel admits he once wanted to be considered a sex symbol, then the looked in the mirror and accepted that he’ll always be the “short nerdy” guy.

“There was a time when I wanted to be that guy who’s sexy and cool and all that stuff,” Daniel said.

“If people find me sexy or cool, it’s because they like short little nerdy guys. And we do have our niche.”

So what makes Daniel different than fellow franchise star Rob Pattinson? “There’s more of a sexual energy behind Twilight fans. Because people have mostly grown up with me, they tend to think of me as an older brother kind of figure,” he said.

“Whereas I think Rob is the sex symbol. And also, I guess, he’s out there more than I am, going to parties and things. I think everyone goes to more parties than me, so it’s not really a big competition.”

Just last week Daniel admitted to having a drinking problem and this week he’s all about ‘oh I’m ugly, but it’s okay’. Someone is working overtime to promote a movie. Don’t worry Daniel, I hear it’s doing just fine in pre-sales.
