Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan at “What If” New York Screening

Posted on July 09, 2014

These pictures sent us on a googling binge, because it was news to us that these two are a couple.

Turns out? They’re not a couple. They’re just a couple of really handsy co-stars. We keep expecting them to make out. It’s distracting. But we admit, it’s also our pet peeve. We can’t stand when couples hang all over each other in front of photographers. Brings out our inner nun. We just want to hiss “Save some room for the Holy Spirit!” at them, like we’re worried about their immortal souls. When non-couples do it we’re just confused.

Anyway, outfits: Hers is nothing to write home about. It gets the job done (in the sense that she’s fully and appropriately dressed), but those booties make a poor choice, not only for the dress, but for New York in July. That’s gotta be some stankboot.

Him? Adorable. It’s an outfit that suits him perfectly and it’s just right for the venue. A New York City screening in July calls for that indie film hipster-twee aesthetic for the boystars under 30. We probably would have gone with different footwear, though. He defaults to that taupe suede boot a lot. We’d have gone with a brown shoe or boot.

So (they said, changing the subject in an obvious way), is there going to be another Harry Potter book or is J.K. trolling the world?

    • Danielle

      I doubt there will be another full book, but I’m looking forward to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

      • misstressofsylar

        I dom’t want any additional HP stories. The 7 books were perfect already.

        • Violentcello

          Agreed, as long as you stop reading before the epilogue. So unnecessary.

          • MK03

            Awwww, I like the epilogue. But then I’m a sucker for happily-ever-after stuff, and especially for Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione.

            • misstressofsylar

              Maybe because I’ve never been convinced that Harry loved Ginny?

            • demidaemon

              I agree. It was the easy ending and kind of lame. To be fair, I pretty much one hundred percent despise epilogues because I like to imagine my own “what happens next” for the characters.

            • Sophie

              My friends and I were all convinced Harry was much better off with Hermione. I hated the epilogue.

            • momjamin

              Ginny of the books was a much better match than Ginny of the screen. Bonnie was fine in the early movies as “Ron’s younger sister,” but as Harry’s love interest? Meh. In the books she’s fierce and funny, and Bonnie didn’t do that at all.

            • Violentcello

              I like happily-ever-after stuff, too. It’s just that in this case it felt like a big “of course.” OF COURSE Harry married Ginny and OF COURSE he became an auror and OF COURSE he gave his kids those names.

        • save_the_hobbit

          Especially when she keeps trying to get in the news by changing everything she wrote and angering fans everywhere.

          • misstressofsylar

            Remember when she said she initially intended for Harry and Hermione to end up together? This is George Lucas all over again.

            • save_the_hobbit

              Ugh, exactly what I meant. That was just ridiculous and an obvious ploy for attention. But it really made me lose respect for her, especially all the things she was saying about Ron. I grew up on the books and grew up relating to Ron’s character, and she just ruined things. I’ve been trying to pretend she never actually said that stuff lol….just like I’ve been trying to pretend the last 6 years that Fred is still alive…

              To me, it seems like she’s setting it up for more. The Rita Skeeter article was perfect (it legitimately made me cry, I’ve missed harry potter so much), but it really sounded like it might be setting things up for at least one more book. Part of me wants one, and part of me is terrified she’ll mess it up.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      It’s amazing how much her boobs vary in size in those pictures. Photographic witchcraft. There’s probably a class in it at Hogwarts.

      Did anyone else ever wonder why Hermione thought her parents would be safe in Australia? We know Voldemort can travel.

      Also, Dan’s brows really could do with a bit of attention. An old toothbrush with hairspray on it if he really can’t bear the idea of trimming.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Maybe there isn’t a large wizard population in Australia, so less chance they’d be found there? Realistically, it’s geographically the farthest (along with New Zealand) white English people can go and still blend in.

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

          I suppose even flying himself he’d have to stop for snacks to get to Australia.

        • lchopalong

          How much does geographic distance reaaaally matter when you can disappear in one spot and appear in another?

      • Pablo Ulloa

        it was part of their new identities , Wendell and Monica Wilkins, who didn’t have a daughter and who wanted to live in Australia.

    • Pablo Ulloa

      actually there’s gonna be a new one but not another “harry potter” book, it’s a “Rita Sketter” book where she may write about harry and his friends.

      • Sarah

        No, that’s just a short story Rowling published on the Pottermore website. There’s a movie in the works about Newt Scamander, the author of Fantastic Beasts etc.

        • Pablo Ulloa

          yeah but it may be a hint of a new book or at least a new story

          “But let us not be severe. Harry Potter and his cohorts never claimed to be perfect! And for those who want to know exactly how imperfect they are, my new biography:Dumbledore’s Army: The Dark Side of the Demob will be available from Flourish and Blotts on July 31″

      • MK03

        I would read the fuck out of a collection of Rita Skeeter gossip.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      I hate it when I look people up and find that they are younger than me and have had a screenplay filmed. The fact that she looks like she put as much thought into her boots as she did her hair makes me feel a little better. (A little.)

      • Anne Coburn

        It’s Zoe Kazan. She’s brilliant and also the granddaughter of Elia Kazan. Let the girl work.

        • quiltrx

          If she ever films in my area she’s gonna get trolled….”second-generation name-namer!” ;)

      • formerlyAnon

        Having the right relatives is good for a 10-20 year jump start.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Elijah Wood 2.0, in a good way.

      • TinyDynamo

        Is it wrong that my first reaction was “he looks like the perfect boyfriend for Elijah Wood!”? And I mean that in a totally complimentary way to both of them!

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          Omigod, they’d look like wedding cake toppers! But, you know, casual and living humans.

          • TinyDynamo

            I want this to happen! And also, I now want cake.

            • Emily Smith

              I just always want cake.

    • Sarah

      I agree about the shoes. He looks great, but I think if his shoes were darker, he’d look taller and not be cut off at the ankles. I just watched the Simpsons episode last night where Dan plays Bart’s new friend Diggs – president of the falconry club. It addresses mental illness in a very considerate and Simpsony way. Argh. How I love Matt Groening and his sappy soul.

    • siriuslover

      That is one awesome shirt. I wonder if my 40-something hubby can pull it off. Zoe’s dress is kind of limp, like it’s been in the NYC humidity too long. I sincerely hope JKR isn’t going to go the George Lucas route and start changing stories under the guise of Rita Skeeter (yes, I clicked on that link…). Romione forever!

      • Kent Roby

        Now I’m picturing your husband physically pulling that shirt off of Daniel, which means that I am in that scary post-coffee/pre-vodka zone! BTW, I love that shirt as well.

        • siriuslover

          LOL! He has an inch on him, at least!

    • Miss Ruth

      Am I the lone BK who wonders when the mullet dress will go away? Also: mullet dress + stankboot + messytail = Please Put A Bit More Effort In.

      • Kent Roby

        I predict that some design “genius” will come out with a reverse mullet dress, which will truly mark the end of days.

        • Miss Ruth

          Well, now you’ve gone and uttered THAT to the universe. Models tripping on runways and exposing their butts in 5… 4… 3…

        • kimmeister

          That’s basically what happens if a non-prego wears a maternity dress.

          • Sarah

            Hmm…not necessarily. I happen to be doing that right now, and you wouldn’t be able to tell. It’s a maxi, though. I just had to have it. It was too cute.

            • kimmeister

              Definitely because it’s a maxi. Plus, whatever your boobage situation is might mitigate it. I have little in the boob department, not much belly, but tons of booty, so it’s totally obvious whenever I’ve tried something on that was misplaced from the maternity section.

            • Sarah

              Honey, I’m about four months along with a little fetus called “Beer & Cheese” at all times, so I don’t sweat what section my garments come from ;)

            • RL McGruder

              Tell. THAT. (especially during this World Cup party season)

            • kimmeister

              My thighs might as well be named Cheese and Potato Chips.

            • formerlyAnon

              I once gave up cheese and lost over 10% of my body weight in a couple of months without changing another single thing or making any effort to lose.

              It was totally NOT worth it.

            • kimmeister

              Life without cheese rarely is. I’m so glad I’m not lactose intolerant or live in Asia. Three weeks in Vietnam and I was murderous for some cheese.

            • formerlyAnon

              This, THIS, is why you are a cherished treasure. From the same keyboard which clicks out obscure art history theses.

            • Sarah

              Back at ya, fA.

            • Kent Roby

              LOLing at your comment!

          • Miss Ruth

            This whole exchange made me feel like I was hanging out with the cool kids today.

      • TinyDynamo

        I HATE mullet hems. Despise them. I keep trying to find a new summer dress to wear & GAH! They all have mullet hems. Enough already!

        • Miss Ruth

          They’re everywhere. Like mosquitoes and Kardashians.

          • TinyDynamo

            And I hate both of those, too!

      • MilaXX

        It depends on the cut of the dress for me. This one works although I’d swap the stank boot for a sandal or ballet flat.

      • Aidan B

        I saw at chick at the train station this morning in a mullet dress and stank boots. There may have also been a pony tail, but I can’t tell because all I remember thinking was STANKBOOT.

    • FibonacciSequins

      It’s too hot for suede shoes/boots. Linen oxfords or Converse for him, sandals for her. Otherwise they both look great.

      I adore him and she looks cute, so I want to see this movie.

      I don’t think J.K. will write another Potter book, but I hope she’ll give us more Rita Skeeter columns. That was great.

      • kimmeister

        I’m glad you called out that they both have suede footwear that would be equally hot and stinky.

        • mixedupfiles

          Right. T&L suggest “a brown shoe or boot,” but stank is stank.

      • oohsparkley!

        While it’s too hot outside for boots, inside the tootsies are freezing. I’m going to “invent” little mittens for toes. You heard it here first.

    • Mothra

      I don’t like the cuffs on his jeans. They are too deliberate. If his pants are too long his stylist should make sure he has pants that are not too long. I also believe that the sleeve is too short. It almost looks like the shirt is too small.

      • Kent Roby

        I think that he is just young enough to get away with the cuffs without it looking too much like a gay uniform.

        • Shawn EH

          Did we know he was going to turn out so fuzzy when he was just a wee wizard?

    • Cheryl

      Aw, I think they’re cute. People sticking their tongues down each other throats, and hands down the pants is wee too much PDA for me, but this is just affectionate and cute. As for the outfits, I think they look fine, but of course my pet peeve is bare feet in closed shoes…gross, gross, gross.

    • ConnieBV

      Honest question, but why do boys get to wear boots in the summer and girls get stankboot? I assume she is wearing socks… Bad assumption?

      • formerlyAnon

        I always assume people wear socks or footies. Why wouldn’t they?

    • lecoffeeaddict

      I had never noticed before how much he resembles Elijah Wood. The outfit really augments the effect. Adorable.

    • kfarrel3

      I actually really like her dress. Sure, it could be a little crisper and her hair could be nicer, but it’s cute.

      Sidebar: I love Daniel Radcliffe. He’s so delightful. I got to talk to him a bit after seeing “The Cripple of Inishmaan” about a month ago and he was just so lovely about all of the screaming fans and the insanity that follows him. He clearly loves everything about doing live theater; I’m so happy he’s having such an excellent career after Harry Potter.

      • demidaemon

        He is probably one of the coolest celebs ever. He’s also British, which seems to be a mitigating factor in the coolness of a celeb.

    • carrie

      Now I WANT them to be a couple. Adorable.

    • formerlyAnon

      Safest flirting in the world is being handsy in a public appearance. In other news, I think Daniel Radcliffe is poised to take over the “not tall dad-looking guy” roles for the Brits when Martin Freeman ages into “not tall grandpa-looking” category.

    • alyce1213

      That’s buddy body language, and they look like they’re having fun. He’s got a whole other real girlfriend.
      She’s clearly not a RC gal, which is fine. So I won’t judge.

    • MilaXX

      Points for getting the cuffing correct. Also I am the lone person left who has not seen Harry Potter or read a single book with no intentions on changing that.

      • formerlyAnon

        Possibly. ;-)
        It’s okay, you’re interesting enough not to need to.

      • alyce1213

        I’m confess, finally. I have read none of the books and indifferently saw one movie (because it was for my kid’s b’day). It’s not that I hate it, I think it’s all charming, it just was not on my personal radar. Also, my husband wanted to read the books at bedtime with our son, so I just never got to them. I may still. I am somewhat familiar, secondhand, with the goings-on at Hogwarts.

      • kimmeister

        Count me in your club!

      • Wink

        You are not alone. Not only did I skip Harry Potter, but I also had zero interest in that hobbit stuff.

        • MilaXX

          Twinsies! Missed that as well.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        You & my mother in law. She said “They are just children’s books, why are you reading them?”

        • MilaXX

          I don’t think they are solely for children, just never grabbed my interest for some reason. I’m more a space-y/alternate universe Doctor Who/Star Trek/Star Wars) sci fi nerd.

          • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

            I think it’s my long-standing passion for British boarding school stories that drew me in on them. The rest of it was just an added benefit.

    • kimmeister

      It’s so nice to see his skin color looking fresh. He so often looks like he’s recovering from the flu.

    • mjude

      I just adore him. not ashamed I am a total harry potter nerd. can. not. with her boots.

    • Sobaika

      I’m going to see him in The Cripple of Inishmaan this weekend!! I am forever filled with warm and fuzzies for Daniel Radcliffe and so to me he looks perfect here.

      • kfarrel3

        It’s SO good! I’m going to see it for the second time next week with an out-of-town friend; I can’t wait. Have a great time!

        • Sobaika

          I can’t wait! I am OBSESSED with the HP books (honestly, sometimes it feels like they saved my childhood) but hhaaaaaatteeeed the films and in particular his performance. I got discounted tickets to How To Succeed a little while ago and it totally changed my perception of him – the guy is crazy talented and a very hard worker. He worked magic in the theater (pun intended).

          • kfarrel3

            How to Succeed was also fantastic, and absolutely agree about both his talent and hard work. He looked like he was having the time of his life throughout the whole show, like he couldn’t believe just how lucky he was to be there. When I spoke to him after Inishmaan and mentioned just how much I had enjoyed HtS, and how it was obvious how much he also enjoyed it, he got all grin-y and blushed. I swear, I was never a crazy fan of his during the movies, but now I can’t stop talking about how delightful he is (which is such a corny word, but so apt).

    • snarkykitten

      I hope she keeps her nose.

    • Ashleigh

      Can I just say I love his white skin and muscles!!

    • Emily Smith

      I’d be surprised and very pleased if she wrote another full book but as a huge fan of the series, I have to be honest, her little short story type thing as an article by Rita Skeeter did nothing for me. I didn’t find it to be particularly interesting at all. I don’t know if she was trying to excite people or what her goal was, but that piece of writing did nothing for me, and this is coming from someone who has read every book in the series no less than twice and the 7th book no less than 5 times.

    • quiltrx

      He’s adorable, and he gets bonus points for a sashiko-inspired shirt. His smile is always his best accessory. (I do prefer him clean-shaven, though.)

    • Beto

      LOVE his shirt! ‘nuf said. BTW, since when he went blond?

      • tarqueeny

        He’s not blond. His hair is probably just a little sun-kissed, but definitely not blond. The lighting probably makes his hair look lighter.
        I also think the shirt is fab.

        • Beto

          I know he’s not a natural blond, his natural hair color is black, what I tried to ask was, when he tinted his hair? I guess is for an upcoming movie character or similar gig.

          • hyperionic

            I think this is his natural colour… it’s not like his hair is normally jet black.

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

          Yes, there is some weird yellow lighting hitting both of their hair.

    • tarqueeny

      I REALLY adore that shirt of his. Something I would definitely allow my boyfriend to wear (my bf does not have a fashionable gene in his body). Looking forward to this film. I prefer the original title The F Word but the reviews from TIFF were excellent, so it should be fun.

    • marlie

      JK Rowling can troll the world all she wants, and people – myself included – will eat that shit up.

      As for the clothes, he looks hipster, adorakable cute. I really love that shirt. She… looks like she is wearing one of her Coachella outfits. It’s nothing to write home about.

      • Shawn EH

        JKR is totally teasing a new book, though!

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I… kinda thought Daniel Radcliffe was gay. I confess that I have no reason for this thought. He just pinged my gaydar. Could be a malfunction.

      • demidaemon

        He isn’t, but he’s hugely involved in the gay rights movement.

        Sometimes, though, I wish he was when he’s this adorable.

    • demidaemon

      He looks adorable. He: enh.

      On the whole JK thing, she’s taking another run at the fandom with guns akimbo by writing a “what happens between the end of the book and the epilogue” short story. Or she wants more ka-ching. probably some combination of both. Either way, I find it kind of sad and irritating.

    • OffToSeeHim

      It’s about a reunion at Hogwarts. I’m really excited.

      • https://plus.google.com/+FrankLithiumz/posts Frank Lithium

        Don’t waste money on the book or film, I got this: Hermione leaves Ron because his mediocrity is holding her back; Harry left the Weaslette for he found out she had been poisoning his drinks with love potions throughout their marriage; Harry gets together with Daphne and she sets his sight higher than a measly Auror by letting loose his inner Slytherin, encouraging him to reform the political system of magical Britain from within.

    • e jerry powell

      How is it possible that he’s so adorable? HOW?

    • a_liking

      they’re so cute in such a real-world way. it’s refreshing. they don’t look like movie stars, they look like your adorable hip friend couple.

    • http://www.beautifymylifeblog.com Jessica

      I’m sorry, but I just can’t get past his eyebrows. I’m definitely not a fan of overly-groomed men, but those caterpillars are threatening to take over his face.

      • MandyM

        That’s exactly what I wanted to say. Just give me 2 minutes with those eyebrows and some manicure scissors and tweezers and I’d have him looking as good as Neville Longbottom!

      • Amel

        No no no, it’s his thing. He’s like an adorable British teen wolf. Love it

    • UglyKirkDouglas

      It could be worse.
