Another reason to hate Harry Potter
As if the Harry Potter movies--the whole Harry Potter thing, really--isn't boring and aggravating enough, word comes from The New York Times that movie wizard Daniel Radcliffe now owns $9.2 million worth of prime Manhattan real estate. He's 18 years old, and can't legally stock the 500-bottle wine cellar in his new digs. I'd feel less envious about this if I could say that he'll be humiliated onstage performing nude in the Equus revival on Broadway this fall--but London theatergoers report that he "measures up" to the horses mentioned in the show when the saddle (pictured, if you're looking to the right) comes off. Damn.
