Thanks to Haley2323, we have this great new interview from Cosmopolitan. In it, Tom talks about girls in general (and also girlfriend Jade), pick-up lines and making love last.
He also includes a cute little note to Cosmo about women:
The thing that I will never understand about women is… shoes! The more they cost and the more uncomfy they are, the more desirable they seem to be to women! Madness.
Draco Malfoy becomes a MAN
Believe it or not, there’s a new crush in town. Who knew Harry Potter bad boy Tom Felton was so flirty we’d even overlook a broomstick-based chat-up line?
Cosmo: What do you look for in a woman?
Tom Felton: I love good-natured people. It doesn’t matter how good-looking you are, it’s about someone who doesn’t get bitter. And sexy means effortless. That girl-next-door thing, where you’re wearing PJs, with no makeup on and hair all over the show. And then under that, Megan Fox! It goes from deep and poignant to incredibly shallow.
Cosmo: How did you and your girlfriend meet?
Tom Felton: Jade’s the stunt coordinator’s assistant on Harry Potter. She’s sweet and a fragile girl amongst these huge men, which is bizarre. She bosses them around – she’s demanding but in a sweet way. I like that.”
Cosmo: What’s your secret to making love last?
Tom Felton: It takes effort – especially when you’re apart. But the most important thing is loyalty. And a clear mind. There have been times where I’ve been in a situation, like I just went to Vegas for my 22nd birthday with five mates and my brother. There were dancers and ladies galore trying to get into this VIP area we were in and my friends were going, “Bring ’em in!” I was like, “Er, not for me!” But, those moments make you realise you’re lucky to have someone you can rely on.
Cosmo: Does having Jade make it easy to resist temptation?
Tom Felton: It does. I think every red-blooded male is going to look at a half-naked lady dancing on a pole, but looking is as far as I’d go. The regret would be worse than the pleasure of doing anything, and I’d never hurt her. Not out of choice, anyway.
Cosmo: Do you think love at first sight is just lust in disguise?
Tom Felton: The Slytherin boys and I used to play a game called Fit Extras. Then one day there was a stunning brunette with bright eyes who was looking at us. I didn’t do anything about it but it was, in fact, Jade. She was an extra for one day, then for two years we didn’t speak. That moment was more lust than love but it grew into love, so I’d say there’s a thin line between the two.
Cosmo: Ever had any disastrous dates?
Tom Felton: Several. My dating tip for girls is to be yourself. Too many women worry about looking like girls in magazines, but most guys don’t notice. Jade could cut her hair six inches and I wouldn’t notice. We don’t see these things, we just see how bubbly you are.”
Cosmo: Do you have any chat-up lines?
Tom Felton: Want to hop on my broomstick, love?
Cosmo: That’s terrible.
Tom Felton: I know. I’m going to stop with the Potter ones before I mention my wand.
Cosmo: Ever had a good line used on you?
Tom Felton: Yes, it made me laugh so much I was tempted. She texted, “Hi Tom, I know you’re in bed, I wish I could Slyther-in.” Very good.
Cosmo: Do you ever get hate mail?
Tom Felton: I get letter saying, “Leave Harry Potter alone, you bastard.” There’s quite an old-lady following too. I’m popular with cougars.”
TOM’S STAR BIO
Romantic History: Tom’s happily in love with Jade Olivia – who has a cameo role as Draco’s wife in the final Harry Potter film.
What you won’t find on his CV: His guilty pleasure is Jersey Shore, even though Jwoww “scares the shit” out of him.
Why we love him anyway: Despite his serious – and brilliant – mean streak in Harry Potter, in real life he’s a softie. “I’m romatic,” he says. “I write songs about Jade.”
