According to Digital Spy, 18-year-old Daniel Radcliffe has broken up with his girlf Laura O’Toole. The two had been dating since May of 2007. She was the understudy for the part of Radcliffe’s girlfriend in the play Equus. You may remember Equus as the play in which horses have their eyes poked out and Harry Potter gets nakey. If Radcliffe is anything like his portrayal on Extras, then it was probably an uncomfortable courtship. “So, you’re my character’s girlfriend’s understudy. Maybe you might want to study under me? Ha ha. I’ve done it with a girl you know, intercourse-wise.” So they’re broken up. We’re glad that he broke up with her rather than the other way around. Hell hath no fury like a wizard scorned.
In other Potter news, JK Rowley recently told an audience that finishing her run with Harry Potter was more difficult than getting a divorce from a real boy. Evidently, she’s never been dumped by Daniel Radcliffe.
