What If

Posted: Updated:

What if the moon was made of cheese? What if anything you touched turned to gold? What if everything you asked "what if" about really happened?

In the new movie "What If," the what if is about friends and lovers. Be careful what you wish for; it just may come true.

What if you found the love of your life, but you're in the friend-zone?

Daniel Radcliffe is Wallace, a guy who is down on his luck and down on love.

Daniel Radcliffe: "Wallace is a medical school dropout who has had his heart broken by his ex-girlfriend, who cheated on him and left him in a sorry state, and he's been left with a bad taste in his mouth. Because of that, he's really gone off the idea of love."

But he meets Chantry and he falls for her. Only catch: She's got a boyfriend, so Wallace decides they should just be friends.

Daniel Radcliffe: "The film is about them navigating the increasingly complicated waters of friendship when you are also in love with each other."

Come on. Can men and women really just be friends?

Daniel Radcliffe: "I do think there are hundreds of thousands of platonic relationships all over the world that will remain platonic. There are also a few friendships that do, like my mom and dad. They were friends for years before they started going out, and now they've been married for 30 years."

Daniel has been acting for years, but this is his first leading romantic role.

Daniel Radcliffe: "I've been very lucky and grateful to people who have given me the opportunity to show that amount of range and diversity of what I am doing."

Speaking of past roles, we had to ask about our favorite wizard.

Daniel Radcliffe: "There is an assumption that I must hate talking about Harry Potter, but I really don't. It was 10 years of my life and 10 years I loved, so it won't be a sore point for me to have that brought up."

Daniel grew up on screen, and his Potter fans grew up with him, and that's what helped him get so far in his career.

Daniel Radcliffe: "The thing about Harry Potter fans, they are incredibly smart and open-minded. Those are values that the books taught people, and as a result of that, the fans are good people. I'm lucky to have them as fans."

With a built-in fan base, I guess he won't have to ask "what if" when it comes to people going to see his new movie.

    Big, bouncing, beautiful butts: that's what pop culture is currently obsessed with. I can't blame people, though. I mean, I get it. I love JLo's luscious curves, Kim Kardashian's arguably more-than-ample derriere, Miley Cyrus' terrific, tail-twerking ways; I'm even warming up to Nicki Minaj's booty-popping song and video, "Anaconda."

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.
