Watch: Daniel Radcliffe 'dramatically bored' of Will Smith opinions
Daniel Radcliffe has said he is "dramatically bored" of hearing other people's opinions about the Will Smith slap controversy.
Hollywood star Smith has been in the headlines for days after his outburst at the Oscars, which saw him storm onto the stage and slap comedian Chris Rock after he made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head.
Harry Potter star Radcliffe was asked to share his thoughts on the incident when he appeared on Good Morning Britain on Thursday.
However, he told host Susanna Reid that he wasn't interested in hearing what other people had to say about it so wouldn't share what he thought either.

Reid was telling the actor how some stars had said they missed Smith's slap because they were in the toilet.
"I saw it," he replied.
'When @channingtatum and Sandra Bullock are the leads, it's very easy to say yes to that!'

But he went on: "I’m just so already dramatically bored of hearing people’s opinions about it, that I just don’t want to be another opinion added to it."
"You don’t even want to hear yourself?" the presenter said, and Radcliffe said he didn't.
The actor was also quizzed about his own experiences at awards shows and whether he had experienced any awkward moments.
He told the hosts that, as a child star, he couldn't always work out the joke.
He said he would "just keep smiling and laughing".
The Oscars incident sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry on Sunday night.

Smith has since apologised, saying in a statement on Instagram that “violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive”.
He said hearing a joke about his wife – who has battled alopecia – was “too much” to bear and that he “reacted emotionally”.
“I would like to publicly apologise to you, Chris,” he wrote.
“I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
The Lost City is in cinemas from 13 April.
