It's hard to imagine dorky Daniel Radcliffe as a "boozie groupie sex demon." But according to the National Enquirer that's precisely what he is--by his own admission. In a recent interview, the 22-year-old Harry Potter alumnus admitted breaking his girlfriend's heart when he confessed to "bedding [groupies] while bombed on booze." Ah, the Enquirer certainly has a way with words.
Yes, unbelievably, diminutive Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe has admitted that he used to have sex with groupies. The operative words there are "used" and "to." According to Dan, he only slept with groupies when he was drunk. When he was sober, the idea of getting it on with them didn't interest him.
"I was always very nervous about the groupie thing," Radcliffe lied--er--declared. "I like to like somebody before I sleep with them. You know you're going to have to talk to them afterward, even if it is a one-night stand...That has happened, but generally speaking I've known the person, apart from a few times when I was drinking."
Of course. And when Danny was in school, his dog used to regularly dine on his homework.
Anyway, according to inside sources, Radcliffe's non-groupie girlfriend, former Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince P.A. Rosie Coker was "devastated' by his admission.
"It came as quite a shock to Rosie that Daniel had slept with groupies," tattled the source. "Her feeling is, if Daniel had sex with groupies while he was under the influence, what else has he done?"
What indeed. Alas, or perhaps fortunately, Rosie will probably never know because her famous boyfriend gave up drinking when he started having blackouts a year and a half ago. Oh well, if he was having alcoholic blackouts, he probably doesn't remember most of what he did. Which he admits is probably a good thing, since there's probably a lot more that Rosie doesn't need to or want to hear.
"I'm not an easy person to love," Radcliffe lamented.
The insider put it more succinctly and less romantically: "Hopefully, Rosie will be able to forgive DanÂiel for his indiscretions, but he's going to have a LOT of explaining to do!"
So there you have it. Does Daniel Radcliffe has a lot of 'splainin' to do? Or should Rosie chalk it up to his alcoholism and let it go? What do you think?
