At times we tend to forget that celebrities are real people, just like the rest of us.

So it's always nice when Hollywood's brightest stars take some time out of their insane schedules to connect with fans and share some intimate details about their everyday life.

If you happen to be a big fan of Daniel Radcliffe, there's a good chance that you probably tuned into his Twitter Q&A last night.

But if you missed out on this movie star's magical Twitter moments, let me fill you in.

Your favorite former wizard from "Harry Potter" took some time to talk about his latest acting endeavor, a role as Walter in the movie "Now You See Me 2," and answered a variety of questions from his curious Twitter followers.

Using the hashtag #imdbaskdaniel, Twitter users picked Radcliffe's brain on all sorts of matters that ranged from inquiries about the cast and how he deals with stage fright to what music and television show he's currently into at the moment.

Radcliffe also instilled his wizardly wisdom upon us and shared some simple life lesson that he's learned throughout his years in Hollywood, and his answers might surprise you.

Apparently, the greatest piece of advice that he carries with him every day is something he learned from his father:

When you meet people, put your hand out first to shake theirs before they put their hand out because it shows keenness and enthusiasm.

Check out the videos below to see some clips from Radcliffe's Twitter Q&A, including the one where he shares that tip from his dad.
