Daniel Radcliffe Suffers Awkward Katie Holmes Meet-Up

August 20, 2011 10:30 AM EDT

Former wizard Daniel Radcliffe experienced a strange Katie Holmes moment. Well, awkward is more like it.
While on set at Access Hollywood in New York for a segment (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/44197281/ns/today-entertainment/) that aired Friday, the Harry Potter star told Billy Bush about an encounter he kind of had with Tom Cruise's wife. It wasn't direct because he was about to go on stage for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying when he heard that Holmes would be in the audience.
That's when Danielle Radcliffe knew the performance was going to be a bit tough to take since, in the show, his character goes into a diatribe about the Tom Cruise Orprah incident when the famous actor was so thrilled about meeting Katie Holmes that he showed it by jumping up and down on Winfrey's couch at Harpo Studios.
And yes, Katie showed up to the Broadway show, as had been predetermined.
Danielle Radcliffe told Billy Bush, "I got very, very paranoid that night because [Katie Holmes] was in the audience and I did it and the audience reaction wasn't nearly as much as it normally is."
And then this famous wizard who is taking the New York theater by storm said, "...I was like 'Oh man, they all know she's here' and they're like 'Wow, this is really awkward.' But it was."
Obviously, Daniel Radcliffe is a very sensitive guy and Katie Holmes is a very good sport, meaning that the two of them did get through this indirect meet-up even if there was a bit of worry on the Harry Potter actor's part.
Should Daniel have been so paranoid? Should Radcliffe have realized Katie Homes would know this was all in good fun? Please weigh in.

Script of the rant? Kinda hard to judge the awkward factor without knowing what his character is saying.......

Since the remark, as you describe it, is about how excited her husband was about being with her, I suppose she took it well. Maybe she was flattered that he was so enamored with her that he couldn't control his emotions and jumped on the couch and behaved like a teenaged boy finding out his parents are out of town and he gets to have a party with a bunch of hookers. Oh, right, he did that, too ! (Risky Business)
