All in the Details: Daniel Radcliffe Opens Up

It's no Harry Potter spoiler to say that everyone's favorite boy wizard might die in the story's final installment.

Even if he does perish at the hands of Lord Voldemort, however, the actor that portrays Harry will live on. Below, we've excerpted part of an interview Daniel Radcliffe gave to Details magazine on this and other topics:

On why he doesn't generally date coworkers:
"I think it would be very hard to go out with an actress, because they're mad. Some actresses are just insane. I've never worked with a nasty actress - they're all absolutely delightful. But completely barking."

On media reaction to him as a young adult:
"It's not so much that they don't want me to grow up. It's that they're annoyed that I'm growing up adjusted. They'd much rather I was growing up and going wild and crashing cars."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: No way he's referring to Lindsay Lohan, is there?

On the nude scene in his recent play, Equus:
"I'd be lying if I said I was completely fine. I was nervous and I was a little bit worried. But not meaning to drop a name, I talked to Gary Oldman about it, because we get on very well and I know he's been naked onstage. And so I said to him, 'What's it like?' and he said, 'On the first night you'll be terrified and on the second night you'll be terrified and after that you won't care.' And that's absolutely true. When you've done it twice, it doesn't matter anymore."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: And when you've done it two hundred times, it also doesn't matter anymore. Right, Katie Price nude?

On if...err....his "wand" became an issue:
"It's the least arousing process... Jo's [his co-star] beautiful, but after you've gone through it a hundred times with an audience there... To be honest, when you get naked in front of 900 people, quite the opposite happens. Not to become too graphic, but yeah."

On staying grounded:
"Even when I was very young and before any of this had happened, I remember being repulsed by ostentatious displays of wealth...People who have car collections - I never understood that. I always thought that was unnecessary. It's not beautiful, it's not creative. It's just showing how much money you've got."

On the upcoming end to the Harry Potter series:
"I'm the only kid in the world who doesn't want an eighth Harry Potter book."

We wonder if that's actually true. We should ask Suri Cruise and get back to you.
