Daniel Radcliffe Advises Celebs On Privacy
Harry Potter star says to stay off Twitter if you don't want attention...
Daniel Radcliffehas offered his fellow celebrities the benefit of wisdom with some advice on maintaining their privacy.
The former Harry Potter star, who grew up in the spotlight, has warned other famous folk that they need to stay of Twitter if they want to be left alone.
Speaking to Sky News, he said: "There's certain things you can do to make it a lot easier on yourself.
"If you don't, for instance, go to premieres that aren't for a film you're in, or don't just turn up at other events and stuff like that, then that's going to help to not fuel the interest.
"Also, I don't have Twitter and I don't have Facebook and I think that makes things a lot easier, because if you go on Twitter and tell everybody what you're doing moment to moment and then claim you want a private life, then no one is going to take that request seriously."
And the 24-year-old said that he did not resent the lack of privacy that had come with early fame.
"When I was 18 or 19 there was definitely a level of frustration around," he admitted. "I did have to think where I went more than a lot of my friends and you do get a little frustrated around that age, but ultimately it's childish, petulant—oh I want that too.
"People always say to me, 'Do you feel like you missed out on a childhood? Do you feel like you had your childhood taken away?' And I'm like: 'No, what a ridiculous, like, kids who are abused have their childhoods taken away from them.'"
D-Rad was recently announced to be playing Seb Coe in a forthcoming movie project.
