Daniel Radcliffe Is Filthy and His Girlfriend Is Over It

I’m sorry, that headline sounds awful, doesn’t it? Like little Daniel Radcliffe is this gross monster who doesn’t even bathe and who has rats running around on his floors and maggots crawling out of his kitchen and bedbugs. Oh, and when you shake his hand, a cockroach wiggles out from under his sleeve and crawls onto your hand. Gross, right? But that’s not what I’m trying to tell you.

What I’m trying to tell you is that Daniel Radcliffe’s girlfriend has given him just two short years to turn into “a fully functioning human.” Oh, Daniel.

The Harry Potter star told the Daily Mail that girlfriend Rosie Coker has given him “a deadline of two years to be like a fully-functioning human being around the house.”

What exactly does this mean Radcliffe, 22, needs to do? “I think it means I have to be able to cook for myself better than I can at the moment,” he explained. “And it means that I can’t leave the house in a state the way I do.”

While the actor “didn’t promise her anything,” he joked, “I have made it my mission to improve myself. There’s certainly progress to be made.”

When asked whether he’d hired a housekeeper to help him clean in his NYC apartment, he told the Daily Mail his “mum [is] here and she came ’round and tidied everything up for me.”

His excuse? He had two performances on Saturday of the Broadway hit How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, plus a Sunday matinee.

The star and Coker, a production assistant, met on the Harry Potter set over a year ago. “She’s busy, I’m busy, but we’re making it work and it’s good,” he told the Daily Mail. “She’s helped me grow up, and I love her very much.”

Come on now, Daniel. This whole thing really does nothing to help me think that you’re a real adult and not just a precious little doll with magical powers and big boy suits. Learn how to cook and take just a little bit of time to pick up a broom. I know you’re busy, honey, but you can do this! We believe in you!

  • Now let’s see – would this guy – a big-time movie star who is also a multi-millionaire – better spend his time cleaning his apartment or, say, getting paid megabucks for making a movie or appearing on Broadway? Hmmm.
