Daniel Radcliffe enjoys his privacy, and to help maintain it, he keeps away from social media and movie premieres for films that aren't his own.
"There's certain things you can make a lot easier on yourself," Radcliffe, 24, tells the U.K.'s Sky News. "If you don't, for instance, go to premieres that aren't [for] a film you're in, or don't just turn up at other events and stuff like that, then that's obviously gonna help to not fuel [interest]."
Radcliffe adds that when celebrities regularly divulge details of their lives on Twitter, it makes their requests for privacy seem less genuine.

If your Facebook feed is starting to resemble a zoo registry, your friends have likely discovered – and failed at – the Great Giraffe Challenge, a new game that's stretching its long neck across the Internet.
Here's how it goes:
"It's 3:00 am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors. It's your parents and they are there for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese. What is the first thing you open?"
According to the riddle's rules, set forth by vlogger Andrew Strugnell via YouTube and Facebook last week, those who fail to answer correctly must replace their Facebook profile picture with a photo of a giraffe, accompanied by the following explanation: "I've changed my profile to a giraffe. I tried to answer a riddle and got it wrong. Try the great giraffe challenge!"

Jay Z has pulled a first: He exclusively premiered his new video, "Holy Grail," on his Facebook page Thursday at noon ET.
And he had some heavyweight star power to accompany him – Justin Timberlake, sporting a scruffy new look.
The clip, which carried a 24-hour exclusivity window to boot, was the first ever by a major music star to debut on the social media site, according to Billboard.com, which reported that with more than 17 million Facebook fans for Jay Z and another 25 million for Timberlake, "the combined reach for 'Holy Grail' is significant."
