Daniel Radcliffe doesn't understand actors who take pleasure in being mean to the crew on their movie sets
Daniel Radcliffe doesn't want to be "an a**ehole".
The 'Victor Frankenstein' star can't understand the pleasure other actors get from being a "d**k" because he doesn't think it can be a nice environment to have to go to work and be hated.
He said: "I just don't want to be an a**ehole. I don't know how else to explain it other than you see people who are a**eholes and you go, 'I don't want to be like that.'
"The actors who are d**ks... I do not know how they enjoy their job. Because if you step on set and the crew hates you, you must feel bad."
And the 26-year-old actor thinks fellow thespians who get their biggest buzz from being cheered are very "sad".
He told Total Film magazine: "I remember talking to somebody who looks after a very big actor. They were telling me these horror stories and I Was like, 'At what point, in all this, does he have fun?' She said, 'Honestly it's the moment he gets out on the red carpet and waves and everyone chants and cheers.'
"I was like, 'That's the saddest f***ing thing I've ever heard.'
"Having to do red carpets gives me anxiety. It's the most unnatural part of acting. The most natural part is being on set."
