Daniel Radcliffe: 'Harry Potter' Is Better Than 'Twilight'

Daniel reveals why he’s surprised ‘Twilight’ became so successful and drops a major bomb when asked if he and Robert Pattinson are friends!

Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t hold back when asked his thoughts on Twilight. The Harry Potter star appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show on Jan. 21 and started a major Harry Potter/Twilight war — whose side are you on?

“Oh yes, with no question,” when asked if Harry Potter could destroy the vampires in Twilight. Daniel went on to say that he and Rob aren’t friends!

“We have a very strange relationship now since we only communicate through journalists,” he says. “We haven’t seen each other in ages, everyone assumes we are great mates. But I’ve met him, he’s a lovely guy.”

It doesn’t sounds like these two are grabbing beers at the pub like we thought!

Daniel Radcliffe is so right. No way in hell is Twilight better than Harry Potter.

Twilight Sucks. Harry Potter is amazing.

Daniel didn’t slam Twilight he just said wizards will beat vampires that’s all. I like both saga as films and as books but of course you can’t compare them. Harry pooter is a MASTER PIECE and made more money than twilight, let’s hope BD part 2 will do the half of what Harry potter and the deathly hallows did. Harry potter it’s 7 books and 8 amazing movies, Twilight 4 books and not amazing movies as Harry potter. To be honest, Harry potter cast has more talent and can really act not twilight cast: well except Taylor L who was the best in breaking dawn part 1 btw!!! Daniel is maybe not as good looking as robert( taylor beats them really) but he can’t handle a candle next to him: daniel radcliffe CAN and ACTS BETTER.Let evryone like what they want but don’t hate to any of the saga just because you are “OBSESSED” with Robert Patinsson: who did diss on Harry potter saying it wasn’t as big as twilight( Harry potter is bigger, their fans aren’t crazy like twihards that’s all) during Breaking dawn convention but of course NOBODY mentioned that because their precious said it.

Radcliffe is a frog!! Well, that’s how I remembered him. My last HP was when he spends his time waving his wand and croacking on screen. I don’t know if he can even hold a beer!! LOL!

Before, Grint mentioned that Rob wasn’t even invited in the Phoenix premier…poor Rob. Now, as if life is playing a game on the snotties, because now, Rob rules the red carpet. At 6’1″, he easily does so..

Dan didn’t slam twilight, he was asked if vampires or wizards would win, dan, having good sportsmanship said wizards would win, which is agreeable, having spells and ability to turn time, why not.
He didn’t diss robert, merely described their relationship.

And yes, even though he didn’t say it, Harry Potter is indeed better than Twilight, having better critic ratings and in the box office. *Robert’s highest rated movie was Goblet of Fire.

And Dan is better looking and more awesome than Robert. Although Robert is awesome too. Compared to his Twilight co-stars.

At my age – 55 – I hardly every look at the gossip sites and generally leave these kinds of discussions alone but this just seems different. The Harry Potter cast seems very snotty and “noses in the air” to me. Daniel and everyone else should remember that HP was already around for 7 years when Twilight came along and Twilight has beat them soundly when going head-to-head. The only reason DH part 2 won the box office was the theater surcharge for 3-D because that was between $3 and $12 per ticket, dependong on where you live, i.e., ultra-expensive “big name” city versus small town theater type of thing. I have a friend who is acquainted with ways to find out not only how much money a movie made on but how many individual tickets were sold and what the surcharge was for the theaters. When the theater surcharge for 3-D formate is deducted from the price of the ticket, HP Deathly Hallows loses to Twilight badly and Twilight has only been in the running for 3 years. If you look at how close they’ve come to beating Potter anyway, imagine what is going to happen if Lions Gate makes more of these movies, as the studio head wants to do, and it goes on for 10 years. HP won’t come anywhere close. If people think about it for a minute, Twilight is a far bigger entity and a far better success.

harry potter main stars are down to earth and awesome, unlike the pretentious few stars from twilght. Robert seems fine enough, quite awesome, his girlfriend is pretentious and the darker shorter guy comes across as jock-ish and not being very clever after reading his interviews from his abduction movie.

daniel radcliffe is a good looking guy with an awesome personality. quick witted, humorous, articulate, sincere, humble, hardworking and generally awesome guy. He used to be a bit of a music snob when he was 14 but he’s grown over it now.

robert seems cool enough, he’s funny and interesting, and has this cynical sense of humor that makes him awesome. Especially how he mocks himself in/and twilight.

I think Robert needs to ditch the girl and get himself a better girlfriend.

How about you get your facts straight… The Harry Potter movie that made the least amount of money has made more than the highest grossing twilight movie. And no, it was not in 3D. Do your research first, because both of the Deathly Hallows films are not the only Harry Potter movies in existance.

Twilight fangirls are DUMB

Posted at 4:14 PM on February 4, 2012  

I find your comments idotic, HP is by far more sucessful, in case you didn’t know but every HP film has out grossed Twilight at the box office. the higgest grossing Twilight film took in 710 million, the lowest grossing HP film grossed 795 million

HP movies has grossed 7.7 billion at the box office, Twilight movies have grossed 2.5 billion

Also you are just plain dumb and stupid for saying Deathly hallows looses to Twilight

DH 1 out grossed twilight both in the USA and the worldwide box office
DH1= 295 million (USA) 955 million (worldwide)
BD1=280 MILLION (USA) 701 Million (worldwide)

Also HP films came out earlier, which means when you adjust it by INFLATION it out grosses Twilight films more

Seriously what is your IQ?

Twilight is bigger entitiy?

Twilight fans are dumb down teen girls.

HP fans are boys, girls,men women, critics and people in academia.

How can you think TWILIGHT IS BY FAR A BIGGER SUCESSS?

HP books has sold 450 million copies

Twilight books have sold 100 million copies.

HP books are a literary work

Twilight books read like fanfiction

lol LittleMo, stop making up ‘facts’. The real fact of the matter is that Breaking Dawn Part 1 made about 280.9 million in the North American market. I hate to break it to you, but a Potter film hasn’t made under that amount since Prisoner of Askaban back in 2004. And Deathly Hallows part 2 has sold more tickets than those more recent Potter films as well… so no the 3D subcharge isn’t the only thing equating to DH2 winning the boxoffice this year. It’s just what you want to believe because you’re a Twilight fan.

Also, you bring up the fact that Twilight has only been in the running for 3 years, but how soon we forget… or are unaware that the very first Potter movie made $317 million in the North American box office. The very first Potter movie has outgrossed every single Twilight movie. I won’t even get into inflation because it’s not really needed.
