Radcliffe Was Bullied Over Fame

HARRY POTTER star DANIEL RADCLIFFE was bullied at school after the film franchise catapulted him into the spotlight.
The 19-year-old actor rose to fame at the age of ten when he was cast in the first big budget wizard movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
But children at his school teased Radcliffe because he was so well known following the success of the film - forcing the youngster to toughen up.
He says, "I wasn't the most popular kid because they wanted to give me a lot of c**p and I wasn't willing to take it."
And Radcliffe recalls one particularly painful incident with an older boy: "I was 14, he was 19. There'd been a bit of animosity between us already and he was being horrible to a kid I knew, so I pulled him off this other bloke and he punched me in the face."
