Daniel Radcliffe – Daniel Radcliffe has skilfully mastered the transition from Hogwarts boy hero to leading man status (onfilm and Broadway)– but his girlfriend, Rosie Coker, has torn him off a strip for not being better around the house.
The actor said he’s been given a two-year deadline to get his domestic act together. He spells out what she told him. “She says I have a deadline of two years to be like a fully-functioning human being around the house,” he said in a statement.
When asked what that meant, he answered, “I think it means I have to be able to cook for myself better than I can at the moment, and it means I can’t leave the house in a state the way I do … I didn’t promise her anything, but I have made it my mission to improve myself. There’s certainly progress to be made,” he joked, after admitting that his talent as an actor far outweighed his ability to function in the kitchen.
He said a low point came when he was back in London a while ago and ate a half a bowl of cereal before rushing off to catch an early flight.
A week later, the bowl and the cereal were still there: congealed into a rock-solid mess. “I tried to change after that, but it has been a slow process,” he says.
Rosie has just finished working as a production assistant on “Snow White And The Huntsman” starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron. She arrived in New York on Sunday.
Daniel and Rosie met on the Harry Potter set and have been close for more than a year, though she has had to fly in to see him during his 10 months on Broadway.
“She’s busy, I’m busy, but we’re making it work and it’s good. She’s helped me grow up and I love her very much,” Radcliffe said.
