Daniel Radcliffe reveals girlfriend Erin is his best friend

Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that his girlfriend, Erin Darke, is his best friend.

"I'm going out with my best friend at the moment. And that's, I think, the way it should be," said the former Harry Potter star, whose new romantic comedy, What If, explores what it's like to fall hopelessly in love with your best friend.

The 25-year-old actor seems to be taking his lead from his parents, who were pals before they embarked on a relationship together.

"My mom and dad were best friends before they started dating, and now they've been married for 30-something years," the star told People magazine.

"So, I think it is a very natural thing. If you can get to a point where you're dating or married to somebody you consider your best friend, that's what will make it work."

Of course, the loved-up pair run the risk of losing their best friend, should the relationship come to an end. "But love's pretty good," said Daniel. "So it's worth the risk."

Daniel and Erin have been together for two years. They met in 2012, when they were filming the drama Kill Your Darlings, and have been together since.
