Daniel Radcliffe: 'I can be too polite to fans but I'm not as bad as Rupert Grint'

Daniel Radcliffe felt terrible for his Harry Potter castmate Rupert Grint when he heard the actor had followed a fan home - because he couldn't say no to her.

The young Brit admits he can be a little over-accommodating when fans ask him to pose for photos, but he'd never go home with a devotee.


"I'm better at saying no than Rupert Grint," he tells Playboy. "He ended up going back to a fan's house because he couldn't say no to anything they asked. That's when it's gone too far."


That said, Radcliffe's girlfriend Erin Darke has been known to give the actor a hard time when he's too polite to rude fans.


"The a**holes want pictures as well, but they want to be an a**hole as they take the picture with you," the actor grumbles. "They'll start off, 'Just so you know, I never really liked the Harry Potter movies'. 'Thanks, d**khead, that's 10 f**king years of my life!'


"One time, a girl came up to me and said, 'Could I have a picture?' I said, 'Yeah, sure, if you want to'. And she goes, 'Well, I wouldn't have asked if I didn't want to...'


"Me being me, I'm just like, 'Sorry, that's silly of me'. Then she walks off and Erin says to me, 'That girl was a d**k to you. You don't have to be nice if someone's rude'."
