The “Harry Potter” star opened up to Parade magazine about life, love and girlfriend Rosie Coker. Turns out that his attempts at seduction were as inexperienced as his onscreen persona Harry Potter’s.
“With Rosie, I didn’t know what was appropriate, like on which date you’re supposed to try and kiss her,” Dan admitted. “At the end of the second date I pulled a move out of the Bela Lugosi Book of Woo—I went to kiss Rosie and at the last minute lost my nerve and ended up kissing her neck, which is such a weirdly intimate place to kiss somebody on a second date.”
So how did he make it up to her? “I texted her, saying, ’I’m sorry, what I just did probably seems very odd to you.’ Fortunately, she just found it really funny, so she kept coming back,” he said.
Dan and Rosie met on the set of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” where she was a production assistant. He even went so far as to admit that he’s “absolutely” in love with her, gushing adorable sentiments like “when Rosie’s here, every day seems better” and saying that he’s absolutely going to get married one day.
That being said, Dan will be the first to admit he’s not the best boyfriend sometimes. “I’m not an easy person to love,” he said. “There are lots of times when I’m a very good boyfriend, but there are times when I’m useless. I mean, I’m a mess around the house. I talk nonstop. I become obsessed with things. This year it’s fantasy football, which means Rosie has to listen to me talking 24 hours a day about this team. ’Should I take this player out, do you think, darling?’ And she listens to it, and she loves me for my oddness, my awkwardness, all of those things that I hate about myself. She finds them cute. I guess that’s love.”
