Daniel Radcliffe Talks Losing His Virginity, Marriage + More
Former ‘Harry Potter‘ star Daniel Radcliffe may forever be remembered by some as the young boy wizard. But the 25-year-old British actor is very much human and an adult now, and in an interview with Elle, Radcliffe opened up about some personal issues, including his “first time.”
“I’m one of the few people who seem to have had a really good first time,” he admitted when the interviewer asked about his first sexual experience. “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—like my friend who got drunk and did it with a stranger under a bridge.”
In 2010, Radcliffe admitted struggling with alcohol addiction and received treatment. Regarding mixing up sex and alcohol, Radcliffe said, “For some people sex might be better drunk, but for me—and the person I’m doing it with—it’s much better sober.”
Currently, Radcliffe is dating fellow actress Erin Drake, whom he met on the set of ‘Kill Your Darlings.’ On whether he ever sees himself getting married, Radcliffe confessed, “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.”
