Daniel Radcliffe: Good relationships are important
By Tribute News on September 17, 2012 | 1 Comment
Daniel Radcliffe believes the most important thing in life is having a good relationship with your loved ones. The Harry Potter actor admits he is often plagued by self-doubt and worries about his work and it is at these times when he realizes having great friends and a loving family are so crucial. Speaking in a live web chat as part of The Trevor Project's "Talk to Me" Campaign for National Suicide Prevention Month, he said: "When you do feel self-doubt or you do feel unhappy and you talk to someone about it, it's better, I do believe that a problem shared is a problem halved. But with things like self-doubt and the slightly more nagging things you do have to live with them for a while ... You have to live in that place for a bit and if that really frightens you then that's when turning to a friend will help. Those are the times when the quality of the relationships around you are really what is most important in life, in anyone's life." Daniel - who is dating production assistant Rosie Coker - admits he suffers from insecurities about his talents as an actor and spends hours fretting about his performances and roles. However, the 23-year-old star insists these worries are common for a lot of the "neurotic" actors he knows. When asked what the hardest thing about his career is, he revealed: "A lot of the time it's fighting your own insecurity and doubt and this is something I talk to a lot of actors about. Most of the actors I know are also some of the most neurotic people I know and it's strange that a combination like that exists so much. I think for a lot of the time about the jobs that I've got coming up I have a lot of nerves about them." The Trevor Project is an organization that provides "crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning young people under 24."
