DANIEL RADCLIFFE SAYS HE ‘NEVER FELT COOL’ PLAYING HARRY POTTER

During an appearance on the “Tonight Show” Wednesday, host Jimmy Fallon showed the “Lifespan of a Fact” star, 29, a few memes featuring Harry Potter. When Fallon held up one which replaced the lyrics of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” to fit the fantasy film, Radcliffe, who applauded the meme went on to admit that he “never felt cool” in the starring role.

“What’s cool about that stuff is I never as a kid, you’re just insecure at that age,” admits Radcliffe. “I never felt cool at any point playing that character… and people thought that was pretty cool, it’s nice.”

At age 11, Radcliffe achieved international stardom when he was cast as the lead in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” in 2001, which was based on the best-selling novel by J.K. Rowling.

The franchise ended its run in 2011 and skyrocketed the young actor’s net worth to nearly $100 million.

JUSTIN BIEBER AND HAILEY BALDWIN SPOTTED AT A MARRIAGE LICENSE COURTHOUSE

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin were spotted at a marriage license courthouse on Thursday, September 13, in New York City, according to TMZ.

The sighting comes weeks after Baldwin raved about her “perfect” summer with Bieber, who proposed in July during the couple’s getaway in the Bahamas. Bieber and the Drop the Mic cohost reunited in June nearly two years after they ended their on-again, off-again romance.

Another insider told Us that the couple “want a private wedding without media scrutiny and just want it to be with friends and family.”
