Radcliffe 'surprisingly' good at rapping

Daniel Radcliffe is "surprisingly good at rapping" - or so he says himself, anyway.

The 'Kill Your Darlings' star is a fan of karaoke and especially likes to take on tracks by Eminem and rock band Queen.

He said: "I'm surprisingly good at rapping. And humble too! I did [Queen's] 'Don't Stop Me Now' at karaoke once, and everybody's had a go at 'Bohemian Rhapsody'."

While a singing career may not immediately beckon, Radcliffe is hoping to move into the director's chair at some point.

He added: "I definitely want to direct. I love filmmaking - being involved with every part of making a creative decision."

However, the former 'Harry Potter' star is not so keen on the role of producer, adding: "I can almost guarantee you I do not want to be a producer. It's not worth the hassle!"

Daniel, 24, has also got to the point in his career where he doesn't worry too much about what he looks like on screen.

When asked how he sees himself in films now, he added to Shortlist magazine: "I'm never going to be that happy - I still look like myself in it. But there are moments where you're like: 'Ah, that looks really cool'."
