LONDON If you’re one of the few people to become very successful at a young age, what do you do with your earnings?
Invest it? Spend it? Or … well, just leave it?
There are conflicting reports about how much money Daniel Radcliffe is worth, but some articles last year were indicating the Harry Potter performer has around 60 million in savings. In an interview with him last week, the Belfast Telegraph reported 74 million, quoting “various rich lists.”
Whichever way you look at it, he’s pretty well off. And from the audios of it, he doesn’t have plans to spend his earnings anytime soon.
“I don’t genuinely do anything with my money”
“I don’t actually do anything with my fund, ” Radcliffe told the Belfast Telegraph .
“I’m very grateful for it, because having fund basically means you don’t have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have.
“It also gives me immense liberty, career-wise.”
From the sounds of it, Radcliffe is basically keeping his money as a buffer-zone in order to give himself as much creative freedom as is practicable when it is necessary to choosing acting projects.
In the years since Harry Potter , his career surely reflects this: Radcliffe has played an FBI agent infiltrating a neo-Nazi gang ( Imperium , out recently ), a famous poet ( Kill Your Darlings ), and a farting corpse ( Swiss Army Man ), to name just a few of his roles.
Radcliffe went on to say his fiscal security devotes him a sense of “responsibility” when he’s picking a project.
“For all the people who’ve followed my career, I want to give them something to be interested in, rather than them just watch me attain loads of fund on crap cinemas for the rest of my life, ” he said.
