Money, money, money, money! Daniel Radcliffe has a lot of it!
In a new interview, the actor revealed that he hasn't really spent any of the funds that he made from his "Harry Potter" movies. It's estimated that he made about $100 million from the hit movies, the last one of which was released in 2011.
"I don't really do anything with my money," the actor told the Telegraph, according to CBS News. "I'm very grateful for it, because having money means you don't have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have. It also gives me immense freedom career-wise."
And since playing the world's favorite wizard, Radcliffe, 27, has shied away from blockbuster films, choosing to act in more independent movies. You know, since money is no object.
"For all the people who've followed my career, I want to give them something to be interested in, rather than just make loads of money on crap films for the rest of my life," he said.
Earlier this year, though, he did say that he wouldn't rule out playing "Harry Potter" again, but he said "the circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary" for him to dial up the role again.
It's safe to say that another "Harry Potter" film would bring a tidal wave of money to Daniel again. Still, even with his war chest of money, Radcliffe doesn't plan on any kind of early retirement. In fact, he'd be bored if he wasn't acting all the time.
"If someone told me tomorrow, 'You're never going back on set,' I really wouldn't know what to do with the rest of my life," he said. "I don't know what my life looks like without regularly being on a film set. I'd go crazy. I'm one of the lucky few who loves my job."
In fact, he plans on continuing to act even when he's knocking on death's door... or worse. He quipped that he actually wants to die on a film set.
"I want to ruin someone's day," he said. "I want to have them suddenly go, 'Dan's just dropped dead in front of the camera; we have to get his double on.'"
