Daniel Radcliffe Engagement Rumors Lead To An Awkward Text With His Old Teacher
Rumors began swirling recently that Daniel Radcliffe was engaged to his girlfriend of two years, fellow actor Erin Darke. When the story came out, it sounded suspicious — it was from Star magazine, it was claimed a Lake Michigan ceremony was planned, Rupert "Ron" Grint was said to be best man — but we figured we would never know the truth because Radcliffe isn't very public about his personal life. It turns out thought that those suspicions were founded. Daniel Radcliffe is not engaged and this time the story is coming straight from Radcliffe himself.
Radcliffe spoke with The Daily Beast about the engagement rumors saying,
Ya see? No engagement and no plans to head to Paris to look for the perfect ring. Yep, that was part of Star's report too.
The engagement isn't the only rumor Radcliffe dispelled. There has also been talk that the Harry Potter footage being used for Universal Studios theme park's latest ride, "Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts," would feature a brand new recording of Radcliffe, Grint, and Emma Watson. Radcliffe says this is untrue as well.
So there you have it, straight from Radcliffe himself. No wedding inexplicably taking place on The Great Lakes and no new Potter footage for an amusement park ride where the three characters just happen to be visibly older.
