5 times Daniel Radcliffe’s Reddit AMA was THE best

5 times Daniel Radcliffe’s Reddit AMA was THE best
Daniel Radcliffe has a new movie out called Horns – it’s a big screen adaptation of the dark fantasy novel of the same name – and to promote it, the man formerly known as Harry Potter stopped by Reddit to chat about his wizarding past, being mistaken for Elijah Wood and all sorts of other awesomeness in a revealing AMA. (Psst: Horns is out October 31!) (Psst 2: Check out Dan's AMAZING rap skillz on Jimmy Fallon!)

lmanders32: If you had a Horcrux, what would it be?
WOW. Um... that's a really good question. First of all, congratulations to you for asking me a Harry Potter question I have NEVER been asked before, that is not easily achieved!
I would say... I was gonna say my iPod, prolly put it in that, but I would put it inside an album on the iPod, so you'd have to open that album. So I somehow want it to be connected to a particular album that means something, like Ziggy Stardust. So that's how I'd want to do that.
FuckBigots4: If you were to change one thing about the world what would it be and do you think your fame would help?
I suppose I would... I would remove the bullshit hierarchy from the film industry, because there are certain people who do my job, and also directors and producers, who seem to think the job they do gives them license to treat people who work for them badly, and there is no good reason for that, and it should not be tolerated. I know that if I ever get to direct, it will not be present anywhere on my set.

cdmoura: Hello Daniel! If you could be any book or comic character beside Harry Potter, who would you be?
Um.... Well, growing up, my favourite comic book character was Daredevil, so Daredevil was great, but there was also, like, if I could be one character from all of literature it would be... Woland from my favourite book, wait no, I change my answer, I would be Behemoth the cat from my favourite book which is called The Master and Margarita, and he is like, a 5 foot tall black cat who shoots a revolver.

ichardwrinkle: What is the weirdest thing someone has asked you to sign?
Um... well, recently a couple of people have asked me to sign a piece of paper so they can then get it tattooed. And, you know, that's pretty weird. Just because I have pretty horrible handwriting - that AMA sign was me printing, but you should see my cursive, it's not pretty! So yeah, I would advise people against doing that.

I have signed a picture of Elijah Wood - and I think we've also both said in interviews that we would like each other to play each other in films of our lives - but I was on a red carpet in Japan, and this Japanese man gave me a picture of Elijah, and I knew i wasn't going to get past the language barrier to explain, so I wrote "I am not Elijah Wood, signed Daniel Radcliffe." And then also people seem obsessed with getting me to sign baseballs, which I don't understand... Quidditch balls would be relevant, at least, but just baseballs, for no reason at all.

ranchdepressing: Do you prefer Dan, Daniel, Danny... what?
Just "Dan" is best. "Daniel" is fine, but I always sort of think I'm in trouble. And "Danny," I think, if you call yourself "Danny" you give everyone around you the right to sing "Danny Boy" to you ALL THE TIME, and it's a nice song, but once you've heard it 1,000 times, you don't want to hear it every time you introduce yourself to somebody.


Psssttt ! Envoie-ça à ton ami!
