Daniel Radcliffe: People's obsession with celebrity rich list is weird


As one of the most successful child actors ever, by 18 Daniel Radcliffe had probably earned more money than most people can hope for in a lifetime.

But the Harry Potter star told Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw that he finds "people's obsession" with his earnings "a little weird".

He's just been named the wealthiest individual on Heat magazine's celebrity rich list.

According to them, Radcliffe has an estimated £63.5m.



Flicking through the magazine while appearing on the BBC show, he joked: "There's me and Rob Pattinson and Adele. Look at us all.

"What a lovely, heart-warming piece of a paper to read. Isn't that what everyone likes reading? Oh, look at all these other rich people we can look at."

Although seeming slightly embarrassed to be talking about his fortune, he did describe how he considered himself to have been "lucky".

"I've been very fortunate," he said. "I got paid incredibly well for doing a job that I adore.


"Because of that it's never been a motivating force in my life."



He described how his money has given him greater freedom to be able to pick acting roles he is truly interested in.

"The brilliant thing about it is obviously it removes a layer of stress from your life, which is fantastic," he said.

"I don't have to do anything. My friends, if they get a job on something they don't want to do, they end up doing it and it doesn't matter how they feel about it."


He is promoting his latest film, Horns, about a man who wakes one morning to find horns growing from his head.



Although Radcliffe did not talk about how he has chosen to spend his money, he did say that he did not own a helicopter.

One Direction, who are said to have a combined fortune of £77.5m, topped the rich list for a second year.


The richest woman on the list is Keira Knightley, who has £39.9m, with Adele also in the top five with an estimated wealth of £36.2m.

Watch out WhatsApp: Google may be launching a free messaging app very soon

Software giant Google Inc plans to launch a mobile messaging app it is likely to test in India and other emerging markets, the Economic Times reported on Friday, citing sources.

If launched, the mobile app will compete in the mobile chat space with the likes of WhatsApp, Line and Hike.

The daily said Google was in the early stages of development of the app, which will not make it mandatory to use a Google login. Moreover, unlike WhatsApp, where users have to pay Rs 53 annually after one year of usage, Google's messaging app will be free.

The Mountain View, California-based company is also looking at localisation, by adding Indian language support and voice-to-text messaging, the newspaper said.

A Google spokeswoman said the company did not comment on speculation.

Assassin’s Creed Unity: Time Anomaly Trailer Sheds New Light on Contemporary Subplot

Earlier this week, Ubisoft quietly dropped another new trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity. The Time Anomaly trailer gave players their first hint at the contemporary storyline that will carry over into the game. In the previous games, Desmond Miles was plugged into the Animus, which detected the “genetic memories” of his ancestors. Desmond Miles is out of the picture, so the main franchise story will likely move in the direction of another character’s bloodline. The previous games featured the ancestors of Desmond Miles, and Arno Dorian is not Desmond’s ancestor. The brand new trailer offers the first look at the present-day timeline. It appears that the stakes of using the Animus have changed. The Time Anomaly trailer offers some exciting new wrinkles for the Assassin’s Creed unity storyline.
The voice of an unknown female character warns an unnamed Assassin that the French Revolution simulation is collapsing. The Assassin is likely the main player or character and the descendant of A…
