Daniel Radcliffe is often asked about his unusual taste in movie roles since he found fame in the hit Harry Potter movie franchise based on J.K. Rowling’s books. The 26-year-old actor has tended to opt for independent films and theater productions rather than safe blockbusters, his roles ranging from a haunted lawyer to a beat poet.

“I don’t really have mainstream tastes,” he told NME in an interview. “People do ask me, ‘Why do you choose such weird movies?’ but I don’t think they’re weird, they’re just stories I’m interested in. Isn’t having weird tastes good, though? I think so. I think that’s better than always wanting to play the handsome hero. You think I’m weird? I’ll take that.”
