Radcliffe: “Pattinson Is Fitter Than Me”

Potter says the Twilight hunk makes him look like Frodo…

Daniel Radcliffe has declared that fellow fantasy film pin-up Robert Pattinson is far more of a sex symbol than him.

The star, who was mobbed by thousands of screaming Hogwarts fans at the London and New York premieres of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince last week, told US Weekly that he understands what so many girls see in Pattinson and says he can’t compete. “Rob Pattinson is a sex symbol,” gushed the pubescent wizard.
 
“Rob Pattinson is a genuine sexy guy. He's got the height. If girls like short and nerdy, then I'm a sex symbol!"
 
As for Radcliffe’s relationship with Pattinson, who he starred alongside in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, it’s all love by the sounds of it; despite the fact they haven’t seen each other since hunky-chops struck gold in the vampire business. "I've said probably three words to him in the last three years and that was before Twilight all kicked off,” said Daniel.
 
“But I wish him well. Hopefully, I'll see him at some point.”
 
But enough of all that polite nonsense – which one do you think is fitter? Have your say now. And keep in mind – Radcliffe’s mega rich and really knows how to handle his wand…
