Daniel Radcliffe has admitted that he is glad that he can use the fame that is associated with his name to help get small Indie movies made and that he looks up to George Clooney and Brad Pitt in that respect. Daniel claims that both George Clooney and Brad Pitt have set the bar and that he hopes that he can achieve even half of what they have in their careers.
Radcliffe explained, "I now want to make as big a mix of everything as I can, from stage acting to film, and just keep working. What's lovely is that my fame will really help get a small independent film made, because my name carries bankability at the moment, and it will do for a few more years."
He added, "If you look at somebody like Brad Pitt or George Clooney, those are guys who have immense fame and do some very successful commercial films, but they balance it by doing stuff they love, that interests them. Both could have gone down just playing romantic leads for the rest of their careers and made a very nice living but they wanted to do different stuff. The majority of Clooney's career, acting and directing, is what I look at.”
Radcliffe concluded, "If I can achieve half of what he has achieved, I'll be happy." Daniel Radcliffe
