No, you aren't seeing things; that headline truly states that Daniel Radcliffe has lived for more than 30 years on this planet. The actor known to the millennial age as Harry Potter, one of the most iconic figures of modern times, recently turned 32, and it's causing some Harry Potter fans to lose their minds. Radcliffe talks about how people respond when they find out he's over 30, and it's probably the same reaction you had when you saw this headline.
If you're anything like me, you'll always remember Daniel Radcliffe as that 11-year-old child with the shaggy black hair and lightning bolt scar, which is how most people originally saw him. The reality is that Radcliffe and the other Wizarding World stars are all grown ups, regardless of how furious the equally grown-up fandom is.
Daniel Radcliffe addressed how people react to the fact that he is no longer in his twenties in an interview with Wired in which he answers some of the internet's most common questions. Fans, it appears, don't take that information well, and seem to use it as a gauge for how old they are. Here's exactly what Radcliffe says: “I recently turned 32. When I tell people that I am 30, people, they go sort of pale. They look like Inception at the beach at the end when they’ve aged a thousand years. Just like that.”
