Daniel Radcliffe: Failure is an art

Daniel Radcliffe is equally fulfilled by both failure and success following his Harry Potter fame and he now seeks the “sense of purpose” having children will provide.

Daniel Radcliffe is practicing “being fulfilled by failing very well”.

The 23-year-old Harry Potter star closed out the incredibly successful franchise in 2011 with final instalment Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.

He has since been tackling a diverse range of creative roles onstage and in film.

Daniel appears as American beat poet Allen Ginsberg in controversial biopic Kill Your Darlings.

The star has a penchant for literature and is planning on memorialising his love for the written word on his body.

“It’s going to sound really pretentious but there’s a [Samuel] Beckett quote I really like which I’m going to get tattooed on me. ‘Try again, fail again, fail better.’” he told Britain’s Time Out magazine.

“That’s what I’m about. I heard someone say growing up is about aiming to succeed but being fulfilled by failing very well. I agree with that 100 per cent.”

Daniel has an estimated net worth of $80 million.

The currently single star hopes to share his life with loving wife and children one day.

“I definitely want to have kids. I’ve grown up around lots of people who were having kids when I knew them, because a lot of them were a lot older than me. And I saw the wonderful change in them,” he explained.

“I see that it gives you a sense of purpose that up till now I only really get from work. I want that. I don’t know when or [with whom] but I want it. And I’d like to get started on it before my thirties. I like the idea of being a youngish parent. So I’ve got energy to play football even though they’ll be better than me by the time they’re four.”

Daniel will not be an amenable father.

“I’m definitely going to be one of those parents who pushes their kids into things,” he said.
