Daniel Radcliffe quotes

If I can make a career for myself after Potter, and it goes well, and is varied and with longevity, then that puts to bed the 'child actors argument'.

Every job I do, I like to think it makes me better or I learn things. It's all about how much something's going to stretch me or test me.

Part of an actor's job is to find correlations between your own life and the life of the person you are playing.

As much as I would love to be a person that goes to parties and has a couple of drinks and has a nice time, that doesn't work for me. I'd just rather sit at home and read, or go out to dinner with someone, or talk to someone I love, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh.

Some people think I am gay, which I think is awesome.

Don't try too hard to be something you're not.

It's interesting because people assume that because I'm famous I know all famous people.

As an actor, there is room for a certain amount of creativity, but you're always ultimately going to be saying somebody else's words. I don't think I'd have the stamina, skill or ability to write a novel, but I'd love to write short stories and poetry, because those are my two passions.

The best thing I've learned is, if you're going out, never go out alone - you leave yourself vulnerable. If you've got someone else there you trust, they can say, be wary of that person. I probably used to be too trusting of people.

I love coming home to somebody, I love being in a relationship.

The nerds are the ones that make the films and do loads of other really cool stuff in their life.

Though I am not religious in the least, I am very proud to be Jewish.
