Rowling Shocked By Lust For Bad-Boy

HARRY POTTER author J K ROWLING is shocked to discover that young female fans lust after the scoundrels in her books.

Rowling finds it unsettling that teenage girls are more attracted to actor TOM FELTON, who plays villain DRACO MALFOY, than they are to DANIEL RADCLIFFE, who stars as the eponymous boy wizard.

She says, "It is very depressing. I make this hero - Harry obviously - and there he is on the screen, the perfect Harry, because Dan is very much how I imagine Harry.

"But who does every girl under the age of 15 fall in love with? Tom! I don't understand it."

Rowling is currently working on the sixth installment of the hit book series, and the fourth film HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE is due to be released in November next year (05).
