Harry Potter plank of wood, Daniel Radcliffe (or Pinnochio to his boyfriends) has told interviewers that he has a fondness for blood and often will suck on the pricked fingers of gardener friends while they trim roses.
Speaking at a press conference for the opening of hot new teen magazine 'Desperate Tweenz', Radcliffe made the statement while discussing his hobbies.
