Radcliffe says girls prefer Pattinson

Robert PattinsonDaniel RadcliffeHarry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe told The Daily Beast that most girls prefer his former co-star, Robert Pattinson, over him. “I can safely say that his insisting that girls would choose me over him, that they would not. That they do not,” Radcliffe said. “He is much prettier and can be much more charming. And he can do that thing of being sultry and sexy. Rob can just sort of stand there and look at something and start to smoulder. And I just can’t do that.” Pattinson, who can currently be seen on the big screen in Twilight,  played Cedric Diggory in 2005’s Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire. Radcliffe’s latest film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, opens July 17 in theaters.

Who do you prefer?

    I don’t think Pattinson is necessarily ‘hot’. Compared to Radcliffe, maybe he is a little better looking but I find Daniel so much more charming and engaging as a person. He’s interesting while the other one is just dull to listen to.

  2. Kaiya • February 2, 2009 @ 3:30 PM

    I would say Daniel Radcliffe, but the whole nude Equus thing totally turned me off him.

  3. Jo-Anne • February 2, 2009 @ 3:47 PM

    I don’t know much about this Pattinson guy, but I do really like Radcliffe and thoroughly enjoy the Harry Potter series, am anxiously awaiting the next installment.

    Kaiya, a question, do you feel that way, “turned off” about all actors who disrobe for their roles or just him? Do you think it unnecessary for any role to include nudity or was it specific to Radcliffe’s role? I’m just curious how others feel on this topic.

  4. Joshua • February 2, 2009 @ 4:11 PM

    I can safely say as a former actor whom has been on stage naked before, that it is very difficult to be onstage in the buff. As an artist you do what is required of you. The question really is, “Was it necessary to involve nudity in the play or was it just for the sake of getting a celebrity naked?” The director has most of the control assuming that the producers do not have a big nose. I haven’t seen the play myself nor have i read the script so i suppose I’m speaking out of my “butt” when i say that most people are just uncomfortable with there own sexuality so to them would make them uncomfortable. To be really honest… what is wrong with being naked? After all isn’t most of human behavior based on sex? In light of the situation i think ill grab a copy of the Script so i make a surefire decision on whether or not Daniel being naked was art or exploit.

  5. sk8tergirl • February 2, 2009 @ 5:17 PM

    Dan’s right, most girls perfer Rob… but I would choose Dan 🙂

  6. Jo-Anne. • February 2, 2009 @ 5:59 PM

    Well, Kaiya I disagree with you, I do not find nudity offensive at all in many areas of film, art, theatre, heck even on a beach.

    And those who choose nudity I feel have much self respect.

    But I respect your opinion as well, and I would imagine feeling the way you do, you avoid all films, plays, etc. which contain nudity?

  7. hulahoop • February 2, 2009 @ 6:36 PM

    i think this is a case of looks vs personality. (even though Rob isn’t even that good looking). dan wins personality hands down. i’d much rather have a conversation with him than make out with Rob.

  8. Nancy • February 2, 2009 @ 6:36 PM

    I don’t agree with it either, Kaiya. I’d prefer NOT to see “full” nudity..I was raised to keep it covered. I wouldn’t choose either of these two.

  9. Nancy • February 2, 2009 @ 6:38 PM

    I WOULD choose Jared Padalecki though!! LOL

  10. ke • February 2, 2009 @ 6:44 PM

    i disagree with Kaiya as well. i think it takes real guts and a real sense of self to be able to appear nude in film/stage. it’s not stripping at all. it’s art. have you ever seen Renaissance Art? All those naked figures. sure they’re not based on real ‘models’ but nudity has always been a part of artistic expression. it’s all about exploring nature and the human body. it doesn’t always have to be a sexual thing. it could just be beautiful. its in the interpretation of the viewer that should be discussed or judged as either appropriate or gross. if someone looks at a naked body and immediately cringes, then they’re just not that kind of person which is absolutely fine. if they react by whistling and making derogatory remarks then it’s them who’s inappropriate, not the actor/model (by model i mean someone who models for a sculptor/painter). i’m not attacking just to be clear. just stating my thoughts. but i will say that i do see a lot of unnecessary nudity but i don’t think its turned me against the idea altogether.

    and totally agree with hulahoop.

  11. stan • February 2, 2009 @ 6:55 PM

    well ke, its obvious who hear has had exposure to the arts and culture…

  12. stan • February 2, 2009 @ 6:57 PM

    its like picking a masterpiece from the renaisence and comparing it to playboy

  13. mandee • February 3, 2009 @ 1:32 AM

    i can totally see where kaiya is coming from, but i completely disagree. i do, however, completely agree with jo (who had a lot of good points in her comments) and everyone else who said that there is such a thing as classy nudity. i think, in order to be naked in a PLAY, you must have the most self confidence of anyone EVER. because anything can go wrong during a play, they dont RESHOOT it like they do movies, or fix it on the computer. its real people staring at you completely NAKED. that takes a lot of guts and im surprised he had it in him. on the article, i dont choose either one over the other, im ok with both 😉

  14. demigod • February 3, 2009 @ 5:35 AM

    ke,stan..well put.

  15. Kaiya • February 3, 2009 @ 9:38 AM

    Actually, I don’t mind nudity in art (paintings), I find that interesting, especially that the body types that were once considered beautiful are now not. I just don’t want to see it on stage and on film, it can be tastefully done but usually it’s done right in your face. I’m a former actor as well, and I was asked once if I would appear nude on stage and I declined. Julia Roberts has never appeared nude and from what I’ve heard her say, she has no intention to ever do so. And many actors who have appeared nude, once they have children and realize their kids will be able to see them nude in films, now get embarrassed. I’ve had much exposure to the arts and culture thanks to the family I was brought up in. How funny that people who enjoy nudity think people who don’t enjoy it aren’t cultured.

  16. Jeffrey • February 3, 2009 @ 9:12 PM

    Exactly, Kaiya, especially when it’s usually the other way around.

  17. Alan • February 3, 2009 @ 9:21 PM

    If the girl doesn’t like nudity, so what? Leave her alone. You don’t have to pounce on her and tear her views apart. And those of you who do it just make yourselves look pathetic and judgemental. I don’t see anyone attacking Nancy, who agreed with her… Are you all afraid of Nancy? But not a newcomer?

  18. Jane • February 3, 2009 @ 10:14 PM

    I like them both, but maybe Robert Pattinson more because he’s older and I love his hair and his smile!

  19. mandee • February 3, 2009 @ 10:28 PM

    yanno, they look almost EXACTLY the same lol

  20. demigod • February 3, 2009 @ 10:36 PM

    What’s with the hair? Is this the new ‘retarded look’ that I don’t know about?

  21. Nancy • February 4, 2009 @ 9:29 AM

    Alan: I really doubt that they are afraid of me! I’ve had more than my share of attacks, that’s for sure…and you know it! LOL. All I said in agreement with Kaiya, is that I don’t agree with “full” nudity. I can handle a shirt off here and there and a little leg. I just think certain areas should be kept covered. I don’t think that it is the only way that an actor can get a job, etc. I also don’t think that nudity makes good “art”!!

  22. Jo-Anne • February 4, 2009 @ 12:44 PM

    good comment ke, and thanks mandee…

  23. tributegirl • February 4, 2009 @ 6:31 PM

    Woah, never thought I’d see those words! Cool.
    As far as the nudity, doesn’t bother me either way, whether in art or film, or on stage. And I do agree, it takes a LOT of self-confidence and courage to walk out onto a stage in the buff.
    Demigod, I think it’s the “just got out of bed” style!

  24. demigod • February 5, 2009 @ 3:44 AM

    Really? And this look appeals to young girls? I bet homeless guys are getting all kinds now.

  25. tributegirl • February 5, 2009 @ 5:43 PM

    No doubt! Ick!

  26. Anonymous • February 5, 2009 @ 5:54 PM

    I hate short hair on guys. Long(ish) floppy hair has always been a turnon. I also like the colour of his hair, and the way it falls. Not when it’s really messy, just the length and colour. It’s actually funny when he runs his hair through it and messes it up.

  27. stan • February 5, 2009 @ 7:15 PM


    Its strange how when someone has nothing left to argue their point, they resort to correcting grammer and spelling. A typo does not discredit my entire arguement…..

    Its also very strange how as soon as you lost this arguement, all my posts were deleted.

    And by the way, I didnt say that people who didnt enjoy nudity were not cultured…I said that “some” people view others that appear nude in artist expression as someone that lacks “self respect”. Unfortunately, these “people” (though they feel they are cultured), are just not well versed in theatre, art etc. Not that it is any fault of their own; they were not brought up with some of the finer things that others may have been exposed to.

    I would compare this kind of mind set to someone that feels opera is not music when compare to Eminem

  28. ricky • February 5, 2009 @ 7:20 PM

    stan your right nudity rocks

  29. Nancy • February 5, 2009 @ 7:34 PM

    That’s me!…I hate opera but love Eminem!

  30. Kaiya • February 5, 2009 @ 10:54 PM


    I am very well versed in culture. I have probably seen more plays in one year than most people in their lives. I saw 52 one year (can you say the same?) and I continue to be a regular theatre goer. I saw a lot of garbage onstage that year, perhaps that’s coloured my opinion and it’s definitely made me choosier when picking plays to watch. I have been in the past, a regular at the ballet. I’ve been to museums in Paris, Amsterdam and Toronto and practically every other city I’ve travelled to. I don’t know why you feel the need to brand me as uncultured. I don’t like complete nudity on stage, especially when it’s for no apparent reason other than to shock. So what??? It’s a preference. It has nothing to do with cultured or uncultured, it’s my value system. I wouldn’t do it and I don’t enjoy watching it. But if it makes you feel better, and you think you intimately know my “mindset” enough to insult me just because I’ve posted a couple of times here, go ahead and call me whatever you want. And defend your bad spelling/grammar all you want too, but it reeks of a lack of education. How can you argue otherwise?

  31. Nancy • February 5, 2009 @ 11:05 PM

    So, I see they reeled you in Kaiya. Into elaborating more so that they could pick you apart. Been there, done that. Don’t give up..I didn’t either. It’s your opinion and you’re entitled to it as they are to theirs. So they disagree with you, big deal…but they keep coming back to pick pick pick!

  32. Stan • February 5, 2009 @ 11:41 PM

    I didnt insult you. I just quoted your words.

    Untruths tend to be over emphasised when trying to convince either our selves or others of our worth. Well youve convinced me! 52 times in one year, jet-setting all over the world! Well you definitely out culture everyone here. How can you possibly tolerate talking to the rest of us minions that cant spell half of what we are trying to say?

    I am curious as to what, after touring the world visiting various opera houses and theatres, has brought you down to sitting at home posting useless views on a celebrity gossip sites?

  33. Kaiya • February 6, 2009 @ 12:10 AM

    The 52 plays I saw were all in Toronto over the course of a year. Mostly smaller, such as Theatre Passe Muraille and Tarragon, etc. At the time I lived downtown and was studying to be an actor. My travelling has been over the course of my life, not within the same one year. And I didn’t go to any opera houses, I’m not really an opera fan. Classical music yes, opera singing, not really. But you tend to jump to conclusions, have you noticed that, Stan?

  34. Kaiya • February 6, 2009 @ 12:18 AM

    Nancy, thanks for the support! You’re absolutely right. There are people on this site who, if you give your opinion and they don’t agree, they don’t just say so, they have to tear you apart. I can see why most people are afraid to state their opinions. Stan was mentioning something about his comments being deleted. I’m not surprised, if they were rude. It’s about time Tribute did some modifying so everyone had a chance to speak up without being afraid of being picked apart mercilessly. BTW I see you’re not an opera fan either, Nancy! Another thing in common… ;P

  35. Ricky • February 6, 2009 @ 12:43 AM

    Not really I hadnt noticed. I guess our opinions differ. The human form in theatre or art does not repulse me. When I see a nude, I see beauty and vulnerability; others make a moral judgement on the person and see a lack of self-respect. That is jumping to conclusions.

  36. Ricky/Stan • February 6, 2009 @ 12:44 AM


  37. Nancy • February 6, 2009 @ 10:36 AM

    So…Ricky/Stan…what, you erased the website off so your name wouldn’t show blue but forgot to change your name from ‘Ricky’ to ‘Stan’? The comment posted and you knew you would be figured out because you answered Kaiya’s question to Stan, but under the name Ricky…so, that’s why you came back with the 12:44 am ‘Ricky/Stan’ “lol” comment, right? How many OTHER names have you been using besides Ricky, $$Ricky$$, Stan?????????? I knew something was up with this blue Ricky/$$Ricky$$…too much weird spelling. LOL.

  38. Gina • February 6, 2009 @ 3:16 PM

    Back off Nancy!! hahaha

    I actually didn’t know that my daughter was on this site posting under stan and that her friend was posting as Ricky. They are quite pissed that I didn’t check the names before I went online. I couldn’t help myself after I read Kaiya’s attack on my baby’s intelligence. Blood runs thicker than water.

    So my posts were the following:
    stan on February 5, 2009 7:15 pm
    Stan on February 5, 2009 11:41 pm
    Ricky on February 6, 2009 12:43 am
    Ricky/Stan on February 6, 2009 12:44 am

    These kids need to stay off the laptop!

  39. Nancy • February 6, 2009 @ 8:53 PM

    ….And I have more money than Donald Trump! In other words, I don’t believe a word of it, Gina! 😉

  40. Nancy • February 7, 2009 @ 6:14 PM

    Oh, and anyone with half a brain would realize that your last comment is totally contradictory, Gina.

  41. .. • February 7, 2009 @ 7:56 PM

    Stan, jealous much..?

  42. mandee • February 7, 2009 @ 9:14 PM

    WOW and they say WE are immature (nancy, tribute girl and jo), at least when we pick on each other we use OUR OWN NAMES ! and do not blame it on children. lol. i think we are funny 🙂

  43. Nancy • February 8, 2009 @ 1:40 AM

    Hahaha, she said “I actually didn’t know that my daughter was on this site posting under stan and that her friend was posting as Ricky.”

    THEN…contradicts herself (??) by saying “I couldn’t help myself after I read Kaiya’s attack on my baby’s intelligence. Blood runs thicker than water.”

    Yeah…right…you just said you didn’t know she was posting under the name ‘stan’!! Not only that but all the posts made by Stan, stan, Ricky, ricky, $$ricky$$ (sometimes blue), all the other blue ricky’s, blue stan, Anonymous (on the Brad Pitts house for sale article), Gina, blue Gina, You people are a WASTE of my time, etc., etc., etc., are all mixed in together and some are minutes apart but under 2 of these posted separate names!! Hmmm, seems lies and sh!t run thicker than blood!! I think it is REALLY IGNORANT for one person to be on here commenting under multiple names, with multiple opinions, causing multiple spats. It just makes it all so FAKE and Tribute NEEDS to do something about it!! I think they should give us a comment on here letting us know what all names have been used by this person from that IP address for starters and then make sure they cannot use other names except for one from that same address.

  44. Nancy • February 8, 2009 @ 3:23 PM

    Well, I would think that a site that has one person using a bunch of different names and differing opinions would turn people off even more than having to sign in.

  45. Nancy • February 8, 2009 @ 3:30 PM

    Like for instance, take a look at the ‘Brad Pitt Selling Malibu Digs’ article above this article…Look at the BS she tried to start with me in there! I was quite clear in what I meant but yet, she tried to turn it around to look like I am racist against Jewish people! Look at the BS she tried to start on this article with Kaiya. There are enough little spats with the different opinions of REAL people on this site without some phony coming along with a bunch of different names to stir things up even worse! Gina did this a couple years ago too, she was using multiple names…’Trixie’ being one of them! And I brought it up a year or so ago that I thought she was our infamous double and now I believe it even more so. I actually think she was using alot more names than the ones I have mentioned here. How about ‘Arnold’?..and someone accused him of being the double.

  46. Nancy • February 8, 2009 @ 3:34 PM

    Oh, and I guess there is someone that I owe a HUGE apology to..because I blamed her for this when it was this ‘Gina’ person all along. I am SORRY for blaming you for using the multiple names Jo-Anne.

  47. mandee • February 8, 2009 @ 6:20 PM

    that was REALLY big of you nancy 🙂 good job

  48. Jo-Anne. • February 8, 2009 @ 8:26 PM

    accepted, and thanks

  49. mandee • February 9, 2009 @ 4:01 PM

    hey nancy, i also think the comment made on the harry potter stuntman injury was gina too, did u look at that?

    Murali on February 2, 2009 2:53 pm

  50. tributegirl • February 9, 2009 @ 4:57 PM

    Excellent, I’m very happy that this MAJOR problem has been resolved. It is my hope that Gina is gone and won’t be back, because she really caused a lot of problems between people.
    I wish Vicki was still here to see this.

  51. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 9:28 AM

    Well yes, I did apologize for accusing someone but, that was not the “root” of the problems between Jo and I.
