  • The former Harry Potter star explained why he's not loving his messy new hair extensions

    Daniel Radcliffe has changed a lot since his Harry Potter days – but we never thought we’d see him looking quite like this.

    These days, the 24-year-old actor is sporting frizzy shoulder-length extensions for his role as Igor in the upcoming Frankenstein film.

    If you’re not loving his shabby new look, don’t feel bad – Daniel thinks it’s pretty rubbish, too.

    When the actor showed up at the WhatsOnStage awards on Friday night to collect his prize (best actor in a play for The Cripple of Inishmaan), everyone was buzzing about his new hairstyle – a look which Daniel is eager to leave behind.

    ‘I don’t mind how it looks but I mind dealing with it. I don’t know why any man would have it voluntarily,’ he told the Telegraph.

    ‘The amount of work it takes, having to dry it – doing anything to it is a f—— nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn’t be growing my hair this long in my own time.’

    A word to Daniel’s next girlfriend: Feel free to take as long as you want getting ready.
