He may be a movie star, but Daniel Radcliffe laughs when fans refer to him as a “sex symbol.” “It’s very kind of them, but I don’t know. If girls like
short and nerdy, then I’m a sex symbol!” the humble blue-eyed actor joked to
In Touch at the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince premiere in New York on July 9. The 19-year-old would much rather crown his former Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire co-star Rob Pattinson with the title of teen idol. “Rob Pattinson is a sex symbol. He’s a genuinely sexy guy - he’s got the height!” Daniel said. Despite his modest demeanor, the Brit seems to snag the girls - he’s been rumored to have recently rekindled his romance with actress Laura O’Toole. “I think it’s lovely he’s found somebody with the
same background. I think it helps when someone can understand something that
you’re in,” Daniel’s on-screen paramour and pal Bonnie Wright told In Touch at the premiere.
