Daniel Radcliffe has a new girlfriend, and it’s someone he’s already shared quite a bit of time with on the big screen.
Radcliffe and his Kill Your Darlings co-star Erin Drake were seen spending intimate time together during the Sundance Film Festival. The pair were seen kissing and cuddling closely Friday while on a date at the Grey Goose Vodka Lounge at the Blue Door.
The two hooked up after starring in Kill Your Darlings, a movie about a 1944 murder involving literary heroes of the Beat Generation. In the movie, Radcliffe plays poet Alan Ginsberg and has a few explicit gay sex scenes.
The Independent writes: “Radcliffe provides a defining performance. He is simply terrific as the 18-year-old Ginsberg, fumbling with his sexuality as well as his spectacles, and entirely in the thrall of his friend, fellow writer Lucien Carr.”
Though Daniel Radcliffe hasn’t confirmed that Drake is his girlfriend, onlookers said they were definitely a couple.
From People magazine:
“One partygoer who worked on Kill Your Darlings told PEOPLE that Darke was Radcliffe’s ‘girlfriend,’ but in a brief interview with PEOPLE, Radcliffe dodged the question and spoke instead about how he enjoyed being in Sundance with the entire cast.
‘” ‘Erin? Oh, Erin Darke?’ he said. ‘Yeah, the whole cast is here. It’s fantastic.’
“Another partygoer told PEOPLE, “They’ve been dating for a while but have been debating going public.’ “
After splitting with production-assistant girlfriend Rosie Coker in October 2011, Daniel Radcliffe seemed happy with his new girlfriend, a source said.
“He was the last to leave, and so happy,” the source told omg!, noting that Daniel spent time on the dance floor and drinking a few cocktails at the club.
Though Daniel Radcliffe and his girlfriend are still not yet “official,” a source told People that they have been dating for quite a while.
