Actor Daniel Radcliffe, who is currently dating Rosie Coker, doesn't mind being a sex symbol and is feeling honoured by the attention he receives.

"I got told the other day I had a really nice ass. I didn't know that. I don't mind it. It's fine if people want to make me the subject of their sexual fantasies - good luck to them, fantastic, I'm honoured to be in their dreams," quoted Radcliffe as saying.

"Growing up, I never thought that would be the case so it's very flattering and not something to object to at all," added the 22-year-old.

Rosie has previously questioned the "Harry Potter" star about having gay friends that are attracted to him, but he admits he rarely thinks about it.

In an interview with Attitude magazine, he said: "The other day my girlfriend Rosie asked me, 'Do you find it weird that some of your gay mates think about you sexually?' I've never really thought about it but I don't care - if they want to, it's fine. I don't care who fancies me, I care who I fancy."
