Daniel Radcliffe is Hairy Potter

Daniel Radcliffe is Hairy Potter

Boy wizard Daniel Radcliffe is the August 2007 cover star for Details Magazine. The grown-up Dirty Harry speaks about getting naked in his stage play and baring his butt for the entire world.

On attending school after the first Harry Potter film was released: “Some people did get very aggressive. People say it was just jealousy, but I don’t think it is jealousy. I think its just ‘We can have a crack at the kid that plays Harry Potter.’
On not attending college: “The paparazzi, they’d love it. And also if there were any parties going on, they’d be tipped off as to where they were, and it would be all of that stuff.”
On having never been to a nightclub: “All it takes is for me to be seen chatting up a girl for them to, you know, make up some crappy headline about me being a sex rat or whatever they call it.”
On office romances: “I think it would be very hard to go out with an actress, because they’re mad. Some actresses are just insane. I’ve never worked with a nasty actress – they’re all absolutely delightful. But completely barking.”
On the British media frenzy caused by his nude scene in the play Equus: “It’s that thing of being shocked that I should have hair – you know, anywhere else other than on my head. It’s not so much that they don’t want me to grow up. It’s that they’re annoyed that I’m growing up adjusted. They’d much rather I was growing up and going wild and crashing cars.”
On his estimated $33 million fortune: “Even when I was very young and before any of this had happened, I remember being repulsed by ostentatious displays of wealth. People who have car collections – I never understood that. I always thought that was unnecessary. It’s not beautiful, its not creative. Its just showing how much money you’ve got.”
On being naked on stage: “I’d be lying if I said I was completely fine. I was nervous and I was a little bit worried. But not meaning to drop a name, I talked to Gary Oldman about it, because we get on very well and I know he’s been naked onstage. And so I said to him, ‘What’s it like?’ and he said, ‘On the first night you’ll be terrified and on the second night you’ll be terrified and after that you won’t care.’ And that’s absolutely true. When you’ve done it twice, it doesn’t matter anymore.”

    He looks totally ridiculous – like he’s trying to look tough and manly but failing miserably. I would tell him dont try so hard to change your image.

    Daniel Radcliffe seems very abnormal to me–like a pedophile. Something in the way he looks is really unnerving. I guess the whole quasi adult look did not transition so smoothly.

    Cat Says:

    the cover picture looks hot, but he looks like he’s about to rape someone in the leather jacket.

    that second pic w/ the red light. the way he’s standing/posing kinda reminded me of/resembled robert dinero in taxi.

    Passing Through Says:

    Is there anything sadder than teenage boys trying to grow facial hair? Plus, he’s got those creepy Elijah Wood serial killer eyes…

    I think the cover photo is amazing but, what I like best about Daniel is how down to earth he is.

    Did they MEAN to make him look like a gay leatherdaddy?

    Bliss Says:

    Perhaps we can look past the pictures and into the article. It looks like he has his head on straight, and is quite well spoken. Most of the Potter kids seem to be quite balanced, and smart. They could teach Brittany, Paris, and some other chicas a thing or two.

    Thanks Jared!

    You kids are so adorable. 8DD Hihi, I personally like all the pics. The last one with the leather-vest is a tad gay, but he looks hot in that pic aswell. I like my men with that look. ;))

    I’m with you, shopgirl. Where’s everybody getting the creepy-scary-pervert vibes from? I’m not obsessed with Daniel or HP, but I’m an HP fan, especially of the books.

    I love Daniel’s answers – candid, fresh, honest (“barking,” heh). I’m so glad he’s turned out to be grounded and more than normal after all the HP frenzy. Rupert & Emma seem normal too. I’ll be glad for all of them after all 7 movies have been made, and they can do other things in their lives.
