Reps for actor Dan Radcliffe have strongly denied allegations made in a UK tabloid involving an illegal substance. Reuters reports that the latest rumors surfaced in UK tabloid the Daily Mirror, claiming the Harry Potter actor smoked cannabis at a party. Reps for Dan are quoted as saying "We categorically deny the allegations regarding Daniel Radcliffe published in today's Daily Mirror," his spokeswoman said in a statement on Friday. "Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this. We are considering our position and will be taking all necessary action in relation to such allegations."

Dan has so many good qualities, none of us are perfect, please don’t expect him to be either. I think smoking cigarettes is a bad idea, but lots of people do it, actually quite a lot of actors do, they spend a lot of time hanging around between takes and sometimes pop out for a cigarette. You can’t condemn someone for this, it’s unrealistic. I’ve seen him taking time between takes to talk to a young fan, he did it very willingly and made the little boy’s day, even doing a high five with him. He lends his support to some great causes and has many admirable qualities, give him a break please those of you who are being so hard on him.

who cares? Yeah, he could possibly smoke pot. I’m sorry to shatter your pretty princess world but it is just as common as drinking, especially in the entertainment industry. And its easier to get a hold of too.

Who cares? He could have been shooting up crack and taking acid or something much worse. Who cares.

Honestly, who gives a crap? We’ve all done it (those of us who’ve lived) the man’s 20. It’s not disappointing he’s done it but that some half wit has ruined a life experience we’ve all trudged through for him. Let the guy live, at least the Mirror didn’t take pictures of him when he lost his virginity

The Daily Mirror should be sued heavily.

i’m an american studying abroad in France right now and I constantly see teenagers rolling their own cigarettes. People sitting in class pull out tobacco and papers to prepare for the breaks between classes. it is VERY likely that dan was just smoking a rolled cigarette. if he was smoking something other than tobacco, then he is only on the same level as more than half of the teenagers living in europe or the us. either way, there is no issue here.

Who cares? I smoked it a great deal when I was younger too (and made it through college cum laude and law school summa cum laude). In Massachusetts you don’t even get arrested for that anymore – you just get a fine, like a speeding ticket. Plus, it may not even be true – according to his reps. Pot is much less dangerous than drinking too much (notice the words “too much”), should be legalized.

Wow, the things they come up with….
I honestly can’t even imagine Dan smoking a cigerette, but he’s not that type of person. Sure, he has tried stuff in the past…. But it sounds just like a laugh and a fake. Ha ha.

If honestly I was muh more disopinted when I read that he was smoking(a few years ago) , at that time Harry and Dan was kind of One person, I have been thinking that Harry looks like nDan and Dan is hero about whom we read in the books, But now in these few years I understood that I myself love and admire as an ideal Harry Potter created by Jo and not actor Dan Redcliffe who is plying Harry Potter, the point is Dan can do everything he won’t as long as he is in a good state for playing Harry :)

I am shocked by the amount of comments this story got.
If it’s rubbish, why are so many people interested in it ?

Guess That Book

"[Cedric's] not an idiot. You just don't like him because he beat Gryffindor at Quidditch," said Hermione. "I've heard he's a really good student -- [i]and[/i] he's a prefect."[br]She spoke as though this settled the matter.
