Harry Potter doesn't wish to hang out only with horses.
As actor Daniel Radcliffe is growing up, female fans are taking notice. And the teenager is thrilled about it.
"Somebody said to me the other day, 'Do you ever worry that girls are just giving you attention because of who you are?' " Radcliffe tells Britain's The Observer magazine. "I was like, 'I'm 17, I don't care! It's wonderful!' "
When he turns 18 in July, Radcliffe will have access to a fortune estimated by the magazine at around $35 million â€" so he knows he has to be wary of friends who begin to treat him like
Paris Hilton a cash cow.
"Obviously you have to watch a bit," he says, "and I'm sure there will be a lot of girls â€" well, I hope there will be a lot of girls who are just trying to get stories!"
Female fans have been pursuing the actor since before he hit puberty: When he was promoting the first Harry Potter film in America, one girl surprised him by doing her Kim Kardashian impression, wearing nothing but a towel.
"I was about 11 when that happened. I didn't know what to do with myself. I was just discovering what everything was!" he says. "That was really cool actually. I wish that would happen again. As I remember, she was very attractive. I'd be up for something now!"
Wow. Radcliffe sounds more desperate for booty than Lindsay Lohan aftr 24 hours with her underwear on.
Meanwhile, ehat does Harry Potter creator JK Rowling think about Daniel's racy London play?
"She's coming to see it!" he says. "She's very excited about it, which is great! ... I look forward to hearing what she thinks."
Of course, on July 21, just two days before Radcliffe's 18th birthday, the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will hit bookstores.
Does he think his character will die in that final chapter?
"I think I will," he says. "I sort of hope I will, really. I think that's really the only way Jo can end it, if Harry and Voldemort ... Maybe one can only die if the other one dies. I don't know that for sure. But I'm quite looking forward to doing a death scene, if I get that opportunity."
