London: Actor-filmmaker Dustin Hoffman won`t mind if his 25-year-old daughter starts dating ‘Harry Potter’ star Daniel Radcliffe.

The ‘Quartet’ filmmaker thinks Radcliffe, 23, will be a "nice" match for his daughter Alexandra, who split from funnyman Jonah Hill in September, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

When told that Radcliffe describes Hoffman as his ultimate idol, the actor-filmmaker quipped: "That`s really lovely. I thank you, Daniel. Does he have a girlfriend? Is he married? I have a 25-year-old daughter, Alexandra, so this could be a nice introduction."

Hoffman has a tip for Radcliffe to make it big as a leading man in movies, despite his short height.

"Make sure everyone cast around him is even shorter. My daughter`s pretty small too. My kids are around 5 feet 4 inches or 5 feet 5 inches," he said.
