Daniel Radcliffe has opened up about his relationship with current girlfriend Erin Darke along with his previous sexual experiences in a new interview.
Radcliffe spoke to Elle about romance while promoting his latest romantic comedy, What If.
When asked about losing his virginity, the 25-year-old Harry Potter actor gave a frank and respectable answer. “I’m one of the few people who seem to have had a really good first time,” he said. “It was with somebody I’d gotten to know well. I’m happy to say I’ve had a lot better sex since then, but it wasn’t as horrendously embarrassing as a lot of other people’s were…”
As for the rumors that he is engaged to his girlfriend, he responded, “I’m not.” But that doesn’t mean that he is averse to getting married one day. “I sort of go back and forth on it. It seems like the most romantic thing you can do is stand up in front of all your friends and say that you love this person,” he said. “…I don’t know. I do think of it as being in my future at some point.”
Radcliffe went on to explain that Tinder is not for him, as he is more of a relationship person. He probably wouldn’t have an account if he were single because “I can see how that’s incredibly exciting. But on the other hand,” he said, “I can see how it’s so f*****g dismissive. People don’t go on there looking for lasting relationships. It’s for incredibly short-term relationships.”
Radcliffe has recently decided to go to rehab to quit smoking since he was up to 20 cigarettes a day. He previously tried to quit with the help of e-cigarettes and hypnotherapy, but had no lasting success.
What If hits theaters on Aug. 8.
