"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" star Daniel Radcliffe says he's now open to dating girls closer to his own age – and he's excited about all his new romantic prospects.
"I've been out with a couple of women who have been older than me," Daniel told People at Tuesday's world premiere of the next "Potter" movie. "I think it's the maturity thing more than anything else, but that was when I was younger – girls my age are now mature, so it's great."
And the young star appears to be thrilled with his newly realized potential dating field.
Adding, "I've widened the field!"
Daniel's co-star, Jessie Cave, who plays Lavender Brown in "The Half-Blood Prince," said his love of the written word could be an endearing quality when it comes to dating.
"Daniel loves poetry, it's definitely a passion of his," she told the mag, "and I think he would suit that sort of poet lifestyle, he's very dramatic and witty and very, very clever."
"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" opens stateside on July 15. It's currently tracking to open equal to, or bigger than, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."
