Harry Potter star – Daniel Radcliffe, 20, and his rep have come out with a emphatic denial to a Daily Mirror
claim of the young thespian engaging in 420, reports the BBC
The Mirror quotes house-party guest Wadia Tazi, 26, as stating that Radcliffe “looked spaced out and didn’t look like he knew what was going on.”
His rep has immediately gone on the defensive and released a statement. “We categorically deny the allegations regarding Daniel Radcliffe published in today’s Daily Mirror,” his spokeswoman proclaims.
Adding that although Radcliffe “does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this.”
At 20, me thinks it wouldn’t be great harm or shock that he’d dabble in some weed. Who the hell can judge? Never mind Brits commonly seen pilgrimage to the neighboring Netherlands to dabble in some Coffee Shop herbs.
There are also some holes in the story. Tazi’s claim of not recognizing the international star for one!
“I didn’t recognise him as he looked so different to what I expected from the films. When my friend told me who he was, I was shocked,” Tazi claims.
She goes on to add that “he didn’t want us to recognize him. When I said he looked like that actor in Lord of the Rings [Elijah Wood], he got a bit funny and said, ‘No, that’s not me’. He looked pretty uncomfortable.” Ummm, right… Elijah? Get real girl!
I find her statements hard to swallow and I have little gag-reflexes. Sounds like a bunch of bull. Leave Harry Alone!
