On the bright side, it hasn't seemed to affect his Quidditch game.

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he suffers from a mild form of dyspraxia, a neurological disorder that often impairs coordination, and which is sometimes mistaken for sheer clumsiness.

"Yes, Dan Radcliffe does have dyspraxia," his rep told Britain's Daily Mail. "This is something he has never hidden. Thankfully his condition is very mild and at worst manifests itself in an inability to tie his shoelaces and bad handwriting."

The 19-year-old revealed his diagnosis to the newspaper while hyping his upcoming Broadway debut in Equus.

Radcliffe had no problem joking about his condition in the Mail. "Why, oh why, has Velcro not taken off?"

The actor did not reveal when he was diagnosed with the disorder, which can sometimes make learning more difficult, but did say that his early days at school were not easy ones.

"I was having a hard time at school in terms of being crap at everything, with no discernible talent," he said.

Enter the acting bug, increased confidence and a massive Potter-powered payday.

Radcliffe's Broadway run kicks off Sept. 5 and lasts through Feb. 8.
