Daniel Radcliffe cracks jokes on his heightJuly 1st, 2010 - 11:31 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 1 (IANS) Hollywood actor Daniel Radcliffe says he has finally accepted his short stature and sometimes even cracks jokes at his size rather than feeling bitter.
The “Harry Potter” star, who stands at five foot, five inches (1.6 metres), admits he used to worry his co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint would outgrow him onscreen, reports contactmusic.com
“I didn’t get particularly worried because as long as Emma (Watson) and Rupert (Grint) weren’t shooting up too quickly either, I’d look (fine). We’d all look relatively (the same height). It was all going to be okay,” said Radcliffe.
“I was worried on a personal level because I wanted to be slightly taller than I am, ideally. But I’ve now accepted it. Basically, I came to the conclusion a while ago that you can either be really bitter about it or you can make loads of funny jokes.
“When I meet people now and they all say, ‘God you’re so much shorter than I expected!’ I always say, ‘No! I’m actually slightly further away than you think’, which confuses them,” he added.
