Daniel Radcliffe has discovered why so many men can relate to HARRY POTTER - because he's hopeless with girls.

Fans of the books and movie series have witnessed the wizard's bumbling attempts to win over HERMIONE, something Radcliffe believes strikes a chord with men who have had similar embarrassing encounters with women.

Radcliffe says, "He's completely pathetic with girls and through that I think I'm standing up for any guy who has ever had an awkward moment with a girl.

"I am slightly better than Harry but not much."
