Harry Potter fans have watched the magical character — as well as the film’s star Daniel Radcliffe — grow up onscreen over the past eight years. And in the latest installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I (which hits theaters Nov. 19), Potter locks lips with his BFF, Hermione Granger (Emma Watson). Okay, so it happens in a dream — but it’s still pretty steamy!
“I thought it was going to be a really slow, sensual kind of thing and then Emma just went for it,” the 21-year-old actor tells iVillage exclusively. “I was very much a passenger in that kiss. But I didn’t mind. There are hundreds and thousands of men all over the world who would’ve cut off a limb to be in that position. So I’m not going to complain.”
Another thing he’s not complaining about? Being compared to Robert Pattinson! “He’s a lovely guy and he’s doing brilliantly,” says Radcliffe of the Twilight and former Harry Potter star. “I think we’re both very lucky to be in the positions that we are.”
