Daniel Radcliffe on meeting fans: 'The worst is when people cry'

Daniel Radcliffe became famous thanks to his role as Harry Potter, but the young actor has shown his range of late with leading roles in Horns, The F Word and Frankenstein.

Despite distancing himself from his magic wand-yielding roots, the 25-year-old British actor says fandom of the series can sometimes be overwhelming.

“The worst is when people cry,” Daniel told As If. “It’s an awful feeling, particularly when they are 13 or 14-year-old girls. I feel horrible that they’re crying. It’s not worth crying about. Please! They are mostly crying out of excitement, but I still don’t know how to deal with it.”

While Daniel may feel some discomfort at times, he doesn’t prop himself above his fans.

He added, "I try to counteract that, because the aura of fame is bull----. People who enjoy being treated differently and revel in the attention that others give them are generally people I don’t like very much.”

Daniel recently gave fans an intimate glimpse of his likes, dislikes, tastes and more in a video for Vogue.
