Daniel Radcliffe a secret poet?

Daniel Radcliffe a secret poet?

The Harry Potter star has more tricks up his sleeves; we've discovered that Daniel Radcliffe is a dab hand when it comes to penning poetry…

Hogwarts whizz kid, Daniel Radcliffe never ceases to surprise us. When he isn't busy concocting magic with Dumbledor or waving his wand at the Death Eaters as Harry Potter, the 19 year old star is writing 'fashionable' poetry.

Using a combination of his middle name Jacob and the Jewish version of his mother's maiden name Gresham, Daniel has written four poems under the pen name, Jacob Gresham.

Unfortunately, Daniel's attempt at keeping his anonymity didn't last long when he let slip in a recent interview with the Guardian, "I didn't want to publish it under my name. It's the kind of thing I look back on and just think, 'Ahhh!." Yes, whoops indeed Daniel!

Daniel's poems which first appeared in November 2007 in Rubbish magazine, make reference to the supermodel Kate Moss and her ex boyfriend Pete Doherty and as well as X Factor and Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell, and in Simon's case he is notably critical... Good to see the judge is finally getting a taste of his own medicine!
