Daniel Radcliffe describes encouraging girlfriend as ‘nice half of my brain’

London: Daniel Radcliffe says that his girlfriend Rosie Cocker is always there to inspire him when he begins to doubt himself.

The couple worked together on the new movie “The Woman In Black”, which has its world premiere in London tonight.

The actor has also had some poetry published under the pen name Jacob Gershon and says that Crocker spurs him on to do more.

He says that he has written quite less recently and while writing he ends up getting “thwarted by my own self-analysis”. That is when his girlfriend steps in as he starts dismissing his own work by then.

“She stands there behind me, encouraging me and any time I’m like, ‘I can’t write any more’ she goes, ‘No, no, no, let’s just write’. She is very encouraging,” the Sun quoted Radcliffe as saying.

“She’s like the nice half of my brain - the part of my brain that doesn’t dislike me - that’s her. She encourages me, which is nice,” he said.

Radcliffe met production assistant Crocker in 2007 on the set of ‘Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince’.

The 22-year-old actor has made eight ‘Harry Potter’ movies in just under ten years, and the films have earned more money than any other series in cinematic history.
