Real-life Harry Potter Not Happy with Fame

Harry Potter of Portsmouth, England was born in 1989 and had eight years of peace before J.K. Rowling wrote the books that would make him miserable.
He said: 'No one ever believes that I'm telling the truth about my name. I had to show my girlfriend my passport, my bank card, and my driving licence to convince her that I wasn't lying.

'Even getting my season ticket for Portsmouth FC was a bit of a pain - I'm a massive football fan, but I had problems at the ticket office.

'First they didn't believe that my name was genuine, and when I convinced them, they thought it was hilarious. It's never-ending.

'I play a lot of football as well in a local league, and the match reports are always full of puns - 'Harry Potter cast a spell on the opposition and that kind of thing.'

The real Harry Potter also has a scar on his forehead like the book character, and is the same age as Daniel Radcliffe, the actor who plays Potter in the movies. Link -via Unique Daily

My second son, born in 1979, was named Michael, cause his brother liked the name. Unfortunately, our last name is Jackson. At that time, the Jackson 5 were forgotten act. Didn't bother him until the last 10 or so years when MJ's notoriety surfaced. As a child, he learned to moonwalk, and later , even took the email name of 'one glove'

Michael: Yeah, well, at least your name isn't Michael Bolton.
Samir: You know, there's nothing wrong with that name.
Michael: There *was* nothing wrong with it... until I was about twelve years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys.
Samir: Hmm... well, why don't you just go by Mike instead of Michael?
Michael: No way! Why should I change? He's the one who sucks.

"I had to show my girlfriend my passport, my bank card, and my driving licence to convince her that I wasn’t lying."

How long had she been his girlfriend before he bothered to tell her his name?

My real name is Steve Davis. Not usually a problem, apart from when I've tried to join Snooker clubs. Though I never introduce myself as Steve except at work.

Hi,
I like this article but..
last night i went to the midnight premiere of harry potter and the half blood prince! I was honestly so disappointed! was it just me or did it seem very choppy and for some reason didn't feel like it was a harry potter movie. Don't get me wrong some of the parts in it were either really funny or somewhat scary but i really was not satisfied. I don't know, what did you think?? Am i wrong? Give me your opinions..

I SAY HE SHOULD LEAVE HES NAME AS HARRY POTTER AND LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT. IT MAKES YOU A STRONGER PERSON ACCEPT THE UNWELCOME FAME.OR KILL YOUR NAME BEFORE IT KILLS YOU?
