While Radcliffe has admitted that he didn’t quite enjoy growing up on film sets because of the lack of private moments, he did say the day he met his girlfriend over ten years ago was a beautiful memory he hopes to tell his kids someday.

“Our characters are meeting and flirting with each other, so there is this sweet record of us just meeting for the first time and flirting,” the 33-year-old gushed.

Radcliffe’s Opinion Of the Film Industry

Starting his career at the tender age of 10 years old, Radcliffe does recognize that being famous comes at the price of one’s privacy.

He is no stranger to the film industry ever since he rose to fame as a child actor, yet he supposedly wouldn’t want the same for his future kids. It seems that he would rather have the kids be behind the screen than actively acting and being in the public eye.

“Film sets are wonderful places,” the would-be-father told Newsweek, “but the fame side of it should be avoided at all costs.”

“A dream would be for them to come onto a film set and be like ‘God, you know, I’d love to be in the art department. I’d love to be something in the crew.’ Some part of this, but not from that,” he clarified.
