Daniel Radcliffe Talks About His Love Life, Admits He's "Dating Someone"
Daniel Radcliffe is famously coy about his love life, but leave it to Andy Cohen to get something out of the young actor.
Radcliffe, 24, was on Bravo's late-night talk show, "Watch What Happens Live," Thursday promoting his upcoming Beat Generation film "Kill Your Darlings," when he admitted that he has a new leading lady who, once again, is older than him. (Note: Bravo hasn't put the clip online).
After a fan called into the show to ask Daniel if he was single or taken and what his type was, the actor replied, "Yes, I am dating someone. And my type is … the type I keep private." He later added, "My type is intelligent."
Noting that five years ago Daniel admitted to losing his virginity at age 16 to a much older woman, Andy pushed him on whether or not the new lady in his life was a bit older as well.
"Umm ... It would be hard for me to deny," he confessed, adding, "I have a track record with that."
Later on, Andy called Daniel a "Hairy Otter," a moniker that the actor says he's been called before. (an "otter" is a term in the gay community for a younger guy with hair on his body)
So, who is this mystery woman? The New York Times Magazine, which features Daniel on their cover this week, says it's his "Kill Your Darlings" co-star, Erin Darke, to whom he's been linked now for almost a year. (However, she's reportedly only about 5 years older than the actor … not exactly a drastic age difference)
Times journalist Susan Dominus writes, "He had already asked the young woman in wardrobe to take a photograph of him in the costume, so he could send it to his girlfriend, Erin Darke, an actress he met on the set of 'Kill Your Darlings.' 'She is going to find me sooo attractive in this,' he said."
In a 2012 appearance on "WWHL," Daniel joked to Andy that the woman he originally lost his virginity to was in fact … Maggie Smith. "She was gentle," he joked.
Gotta say … we love Daniel's sense of humor!
So, who are some of the former boy wizard's other past loves?
Prior to Darke, Daniel was dating Rosie Coker, a set painter on the final two Harry Potter films. They reportedly dated from 2011 - 2012.
At one point in 2010, he was rumored to be with Olive Uniacke, the stepdaughter of a producer of the Harry Potter films.
And before that, he was linked to Irish actress Laura O'Toole from 2007-08, whom he met while starring in the West End production of the play "Equus."
Radcliffe certainly seems to have a type!
