Daniel Radcliffe's biggest secret about the woman who took his virginity has been outed by US Weekly. While the young actor has been keeping the woman's identity under wrap, the magazine claimed it's his ex-girlfriend Amy Byrne who did it.

Radcliffe recently revealed in an interview for the October issue of Details magazine that he lost his virginity to an older woman. He, nevertheless, wouldn't say who the lucky lady was. He only said that the age difference between him and the lady "wasn't ridiculous but it would freak some people out."

In a report in its new issue, US Weekly quoted a source as claiming that Radcliffe lost his virginity to his then girlfriend Amy, an assistant hairdresser who was 23 years old when they first met on the set of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (2005).

Notwithstanding with the claim, a representative for Radcliffe has no comment at all. The actor himself has yet commented on the report.

Gaining fame when he was still very young, even before he reached Britain's age of consent, 16, Radcliffe did admit that most of his friends are girls. Staying single for the time being, he stated that he has no time to date just like his other peers. "Most of my friends have been girls, and I see how they are with their boyfriends and I think, I couldn't do that," he revealed. "I just don't have the time."

Provoking pros and cons with his full frontal appearance in the original London production of "Equus", Radcliffe will be reprising his role in the stage production's Broadway play on September 5. He, in the meantime, also is preparing himself to play a more mature role in the upcoming drama flick "Journey."

For those of you saying it was illegal for that woman to have sex with Daniel, get a clue as to what the laws are in Europe first before you make yourself look like a fool. Daniel was of LEGAL age for sex! That happens to be 16 in that country! So fuck off!

guys, nothing's wrong with losing your virginity young. as long as you love the person, you weren't pressured into it, and it was safe, whats the big deal? i lost my virginity when i was 14 and i'm still happy with my choice.

Guys. It's a SEVEN-year difference. Now I KNOW that in the olden days when old men were marrying young teenage girls, a mere seven-year difference would have been unacceptable to the parents. The only reason why you're freaking out, is the fact that he's sixteen and you think that's too young an age to be having sex. Trust me. I agree. At the same time, in this day and age when twelve year olds are having sex, I don't think it's THAT bad. Plus, the religious comments are tacky and unnecessary. It's seven years. Get over it.

Who cares about him anyway? He enjoyed the goodies of a 23years-old juicy chick. What's wrong with that? Some kids do it at 12, I have bitches in my highschool that started it at that isn't relevant anymore.....big deal...doh

"used to be sweet innocent Harry?" Daniel isn't Harry Potter. Harry is a character he plays in movies. And we should stop referring to the woman as a slut. That's tacky.

bleh. Nevertheless, being older than him, and a woman, I must admit that'd I would have liked to steal his "v" card. I have never slept with a virgin. Something tells me that would be fabulous.

...all i have to say is why... I mean, age isn't a factor. Most peoples parents are 4+ years in difference... but 16? That is just terrible

OMG!!! NO HE DIDN'T!!!!..... Okay, he did . That's just sad.. what there was no one else on the list? .. and he went for the hairdresser.. ..Oh well what can we do ... he was in a rush to get the virginity thing over with ... and "Amy" was an open door ... Technically she would be considered a child malester but Dan doesn't think so, he just knows he enjoyed it ... that's just sad i would have expected something original but that's his mistake...oh well...

Would you guys say the same if it was your daughter who was 16 and she had sex with a 23 year old man?? Why the double standard between boys and girls? Ok lets say it was your son, would you want a 23 year old woman sleeping with him at 16?
posted by Seriously? Seriously on Sep 08, 2008
So he was 16 and she was 23... like thats REALLY that much of an age difference, come on! 6 years? That's nothing... There are 8 years between my parents (and Mum is the older one, shock horror gasp!) so 6 years in the grand scheme of things is pretty meh...

that is suprising. i did not think that he would do that but it happened and it is over. i am shocked that he would do that but we cannot control his actions

omg! That hairdresser must be a cradle-snatcher! ewwwww. I can't see the attraction with daniel anyway, he looks like a kid, and his eyebrows have their own climate.

Wow! I wasn't expecting to ever learn about this. Makes you think about why her? Along with the thought that he would have never lost his virginity if he wasn't playing the role of Harry Potter. Which would mean he wouldn't have met her and so on. But even if he wasn't famous I'm sure he would have lost it to another girl. Teenagers are like that and but even would have been nice to see that he would wait. Because it makes it look like she's robbing the cradle.
