“The type of girls I’d want to be with wouldn’t be with someone like me because of fame,” the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows actor told OK! Magazine.

Modest Radcliffe implies that, when out on a date, he finds it hard to live up to the image of a sophisticated movie star.

“People think when you’re famous you’re going to be cool,” he said.

One way around the fame issue is to step out with people in the business.

In this vein Radcliffe has dated Laura O’Toole, his co-star in West End show Equus, and most recently, Olive Uniacke, the daughter of the producer of the Harry Potter films.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows comes out on 19 November.
