Daniel Radcliff claims he was never overwhelmed by stardom and credits his parents for keeping him level headed.
Daniel Radcliffe didn't let fame go to his head.
The 23-year-old actor shot into the limelight in 2001 for playing the title character in the 'Harry Potter' film series and following his acting success, was a renowned multi-millionaire by the age of 19, but the British star claims he was never overwhelmed by stardom and credits his parents for keeping him level headed.
Speaking in an interview with Time Out magazine, he said: ''I had really good parents. And I got lucky and I love it. I'm always amused at the way some actor's behaviour is truly disgusting. That's one thing that will never happen on one of my sets, if I ever direct. Life's too short to work with arseholes. And I've been lucky enough not to have to.''
Daniel - who is currently starring in 'Kill Your Darlings' - insists he adores acting to the point where he isn't bothered about the money and he's so committed to his trade that he hasn't taken a holiday for a long time.
He explained: ''I love my job and I want to earn the right to do it every day.''
''I don't know when the last time was I had a holiday. I am now actively trying to develop other interests.''
