HARRY POTTER star Daniel Radcliffe is petrified of meeting Jack White after branding the rocker's band THE White Stripes "overrated."

The 14-year-old actor also attacked New York group the Yeah Yeah Yeahs for their off-putting drum sequences.

Radcliffe confesses, "Two bands that I think are really overrated - and this is gonna go down badly - are the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The White Stripes. I don't get the drumming. It puts me off them every time.

"I really hope I don't meet them now - Jack White's gonna hit me 'cos he really did JASON (STOLLSTEIMER) VON BONDIE in badly, didn't he?"
