Poor Reporting – Hagrid and Maxime

In what is another example of poor reporting, the Daily Record has an article about the recently-seperated Robbie Coltrane having his arm around a “mystery woman”. The paper goes onto report that “Coltrane revealed that Hagrid has a love interest in the latest movie – an 8ft 6in giant called Madame Maxime” – which of course, does not happen until Goblet of Fire and NOT Prisoner of Azkaban. I’m pretty confident that the one has nothing to do with the other.
Previous flubs have been when papers pieced quotes from various sources (Potential SPOILER – highlight) to make it sound like Coltrane said Hagrid would die in Book 5.
