Dan gets a thumbs-up from his “Horns” co-star Juno Temple in an interview with the Press Assocation, quoted in FemaleFirst.co.uk:
Speaking to the Press Association the actress said: “Daniel is such a brilliant human being.
“I am so happy that I have had the opportunity to work with him. He is such a down-to-earth, raw and giving person. I adore him.”
And with all this talk of progressing young stars, Dustin is flattered to hear that Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe looks to him as his greatest idol.
“That’s really lovely,” he laughs. “I thank you, Daniel. Does he have a girlfriend? Is he married?
“I have a 25-year-old daughter, Alexandra, so this could be a nice introduction.”
According to Daniel, 23, it is Dustin’s rather short stature and unconventional approach to life and work that makes them kindred spirits.
“Well I guess I haven’t been conventional my whole life,” says Dustin.
“When I see all these kids wearing their Levi’s down at the ground and the baseball caps sideways all I think is that if I was their age I would do the opposite.
“I would pull my pants up and put my hat on straight.
“I never wanted to be part of the crowd, I’ve never understood why anyone would. And if Daniel agrees with me, good for him.”
And the trick to being a successful, short, leading man?
“That’s easy,” he says. “Make sure everyone cast around him is even shorter.

Our very own Sabine must be moonlighting as a detective because she managed to dig up this little Dan filled gem ahead of the MTV broadcast: HBP spoilers. Enjoy, and Danke schön Sabine!
