Daniel Radcliffe, boy star of ‘Harry Potter,’ talks groupie sex

Racliffe says he's "not an easy person to love." Groupies disagree.

It’s sort of strange to think of Daniel Radcliffe doing anything other than waving wands and whipping up potions. In fact, we’re still getting used to him lurking around in coat tails and being haunted by a tortured soul.

But now we have to think about him having sex with groupies? Harry Potter has groupies?!  

In a candid, but very British, interview with the Daily News, Radcliffe, 22, admits that he has indulged in the sexual perks that come with being a celebrity.

“I was always very nervous about the groupie thing. I like to like somebody before I sleep with them,” Radcliffe said. “You know, you’re going to have to talk to them afterwards, even if it is a one-night stand,” he added.

We’re having a hard time imagining that these “groupies” are anything other than the biggest girl nerds ever. Still, though, Radcliffe says he’s been known to dabble in groupie love, nerdy or not.

“I have . . . I mean, that has happened, but generally speaking I’ve known the person. Apart from a few times when I was drinking.”

Harry Potter drinks?! Actually, we already knew that. He’s been quite public about his struggles with alcohol, but it’s still weird for us to think about it.

Radcliffe also dished about his girlfriend, Rosie Coker, a production assistant he met on the set of the last “Harry Potter” film.

“Rosie’s lovely. She’s a wonderful, wonderful girl – but far too good for me! I find myself constantly going, ‘S—, you don’t know what you’re in for yet!” he said.

Well, she knows now, Radcliffe.
