NEW YORK CITY - Daniel Radcliffe, the star of the Harry Potter series recently had lunch at The Lips of The Dastardly Dragon Restaurant in Queens where he spoke with a reporter from The Right Coast Illustrated Revue.
Radcliffe first met Wasabi Ashburton with RCIR back in April when he had interviewed him and fellow co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.
Ashburn has recently conducted interviews with such well known celebrities as Kim Kardashian, Donald Trump, Kid Rock, and Piers Morgan.
Ashburn asked Daniel if he could give him any behind-the-scenes tidbits regarding his latest Harry Potter film.
Daniel paused from his appetizer plate of Crab Rangoon and said that no one knows this but six of the parts of the goblins of Gringotts (the little people) were played by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's children.
Ashburn was shocked. Radcliffe laughed and said that the director who is a close friend of Pitts agreed to let the kids portray the little people so that they could earn some money that Brad and Angelina could put away for Christmas presents.
Radcliffe said that all the Pitt-Jolie kids did very good and added that the only little problem was that five-year-old Shiloh did not want to dress up as a female goblin and insisted on dressing up as a male goblin even though she is a female biologically speaking.
The director finally agreed to let her crossdress and dress up a male goblin.
Daniel also conveyed to Ashburn that the kissing scene between Emma Watson and Rupert Grint did not go very well. He remarked that the two were not happy with the kissing scene at all.
Emma later said that kissing Rupert was about as pleasurable as kissing a baloney sandwich. Rupert responded by saying that kissing Emma was about as satisfying as kissing a two-day old McMuffin.
Daniel also mentioned some of the lines from the movies. He said that one of the lines he speaks in the film is "There's something hidden in the castle, and it may not help us defeat you-know-who."
He giggled as he said that the line was originally written as "There's something hidden in the castle, and it may not help us defeat old what's-his-name."
He said the director changed it because it sounded too metro and plus he felt that it had a type of Abbott and Costello tinge to it.
The character of Bellatrix Lestrange played by Helena Bonham Carter has a line that reads "Oh come on granny, give us your best."
The line was originally written as "Oh come on granny, show us your bloomin' knickers for goodness sakes."
But Helena felt that it would be a little bit disrespectful to all of the grannies who would view the movie. At first the director said that grannies would not really be going to see a Harry Potter film but he ended up going with the dialogue change after the cast and crew got together and chipped in a total of $327 if he would make the change.
In a related story. Daniel stated that Emma Watson is such a fan of the Harry Potter movies that she is seriously thinking about getting a tattoo which reads Harry Potter placed on an undisclosed place on her body.
