TORONTO — Daniel Radcliffe has said he couldn’t stand to watch himself in at least one of the Harry Potter films.
“It’s hard to watch a film like Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince because I’m just not very good in it,” he told the Daily Mail. “I hate it.
“My acting is very one-note and I can see I got complacent.”
Half-Blood Prince, released in 2009, was the sixth movie in the Harry Potter franchise.
Radcliffe was 11 when he was cast in the role.
‘”The moments I’m not as proud of, mistakes other actors get to make in rehearsal rooms or at drama school, are all on film for everyone to see.,” he told the British newspaper.
Now 25, he said he was harder on himself than anyone.
“It’s more important for me to be self-critical,” he said, “because I’ve grown up in an atmosphere where everyone is always wanting to be nice to me.”
Radcliffe currently stars in the made-in-Toronto romantic comedy The F Word.
