Harry Potter is Rich

Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe, turns 18 today and for the first time, he will have access to the estimated $40 million (holy shit!) that he has amassed during his brief career. However, he predicts that we won’t being seeing him in any gossip columns anytime soon. He says:

I don’t plan to be one of those people who, as soon as they turn 18, suddenly buy themselves a massive sports car collection or something similar…The things I like buying are things that cost about 10 pounds — books and CDs and DVDs…I’ll definitely have some sort of party. Hopefully none of you will be reading about it…People are always looking to say ‘kid star goes off the rails…But I try very hard not to go that way because it would be too easy for them.”

Who knows what a person is capable of when $40 million is suddenly thrown at them, but this guy seems to have his head on straight, so good luck to him. His life shouldn’t really change that much, though. He’ll still be the same dorky kid from Harry Potter, except only with a Gulfstream and required anal in his threesomes with Playboy Playmates.
