Daniel Dishes
The British actor on losing his virginity and celeb crushes.
Actor Daniel Radcliffe is in the midst of promoting his new film What If, and he had a little fun with his fans.

Small groups of fans were selected to do a post-movie interview with Buzzfeed.com, and during the chat, Radcliffe, who called the prank a “cunning and hopefully joyful act of deception”, sneaked up behind them.

One fan initially ran away upon the sight of her favorite actor, while another confessed her first instinct is to “punch people in the face” if they sneak up behind her. That’s a bit brutal.

Radcliffe explained, “So that was me scaring the shit out of a bunch of people, which is always fun. It is nice to get that kind of genuine reaction from people. I was definitely sitting back there worried that they would be talking about how they hate the film and they wouldn’t be at all pleased to see me.”
