Daniel Radcliffe: “I hardly ever see to Rupert Grint.”

Harry Potter fans prepare for a shocker. The three stars of the film franchise are far from close buddies in real life according to Daniel Radcliffe.
In fact Dan revealed – whilst promoting his new flick Woman in Black this week – that he’s hardly ever in touch with Rupert Grint! Fortunately he is in contact with Emma Watson who played Hermione. Dan revealed: “There’s this idea that Emma, Rupert and myself are the best of friends, who grew up together and now always hang out as best friends as a result. I’m just going to put out there, Emma and I text all the time, I always know what she’s at but I’m just going to say, Rupert and I never text each other, we never see each other. If I see him every six months or so, it’s a friendly ‘hello, how things with you’ but that’s about it. He’s the most laid back guy in the world, I could finish up a conversation with him, and pick it up at the same spot six months later, it’s easy between us but nothing close at all.”
The geeky star also revealed a random fact – the three of them were once offered roles in a remake of The Wizard of Oz. “I would be playing the cowardly lion, but it would be a karate kicking cowardly lion,” he revealed. “How could I turn that down?! Emma was obviously to be Dorothy, and Rupert I think Scarecrow, so Tin Man I presume was to be animatronic. So that was a weird one to get.
“I’ve had a lot of offers post Potter, but I just try and stay away from any of the next big fantasy franchises….or anything crap really.” Sounds wise.
