To avoid fainting, keep repeating 'It's only a movie...It's only a movie...'

After eight installments of the most magically profitable movie series ever, Daniel Radcliffe could afford to convert his fortune into solid gold coins and deck out his home like his own personal Gringott's...but he hasn't. In fact, he doesn't really spend his cash at all, telling The Mirror:

"I don’t really do anything with my money."

Given that Dan has an estimated $95 million sitting in the bank, that kind of restraint deserves a Ron Weasley reaction:

Although he's not racing out to buy up properties, cars and art (or whatever it is that the mega-rich usually spend their cash on) it sounds like Dan is using his millions to buy something more valuable: happiness.

"I’m very grateful for it, because having money means you don’t have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have. It also gives me immense freedom career-wise. For all the people who’ve followed my career, I want to give them something to be interested in, rather than just make loads of money on crap films for the rest of my life."

It's true that Daniel Radcliffe has chosen some outlandish and fringe roles since achieving financial security — a horse-screwing religious maniac in Equus, a farting corpse in Swiss Army Man, and an undercover cop infiltrating a Nazi gang in Imperium (check out skinhead Dan in the trailer below):

Good on you, Dan, for not losing your mind and spending all of your money on nonsense!

What would you do with $95 million?
