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.”

    These pictures… are pretty creepy.

  • everybody nose


  • everybody nose

    saying they are creepy is very……..he will not be a handsome man, never, never I say never!!!!!!!!!

  • Jaya

    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.

  • Andrea Smith Stone

    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

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

  • Sarah

    He’s ugly. Whats with all the attention. All the girls only like him because he’s worth millions!

  • Hulla

    He’s so not hot.

  • Geez

    I have Harry Potter fetish. I will do him.

  • sara

    is it wrong for a 21 year old female to say that he looks hot?? well heck, even if its wrong.. I’d do him! :D

  • I’m Not Obsessed

    He looks like a scary pervert!! LOL..

  • almost

    He looks freakishly like elijah wood in those pictures. Maybe its the whole blue eyes dark hair scruffy beard combo.

  • Damn

    That Harry potter is one strange looking mofo.

  • gr

    he looks sooo scary. his tough guy act really isn’t working it just making him look creepy.

  • Ashley

    I’m not feeling the facial hair.

  • H

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

  • Passing Through

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

  • suzy

    lol, i love him

  • shopgirl

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

  • louveciennes

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

  • Bliss

    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!

  • yuhuu

    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. ;))

  • ligaya

    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.

  • daniel

    Oh my!!!!! he is so hot…

  • Naomi

    #12: totally right, Elijah Wood look-a-like. and people are just disgusted ’cause he ain’t a pretty boy anymore (young, innocent) face it: HE’S A MAN (and a fuckable one also ^^)

  • Jill

    Never seen the Harry Potter Movies. But I have to say Daniel looks pretty good looking.

  • Vanessa

    ele ta horrivel!deixei de ser fã dele, agora só sou fã de harry potter, acho que ele mudou muito depois que ele fez aquela peça.

  • julia weinstein

    He has piercing blue eyes.

  • Gia Jolie

    He is so GORGEOUS, so don’t hate on him because he is handsome, and wealthy. And he sounds like a very nice, normal, down to earth guy. Ladies drool, and so do guys! Admit it! ;D

  • Megan

    He looks freaking weird and creepy in these pictures!

  • Didi

    hey its Deuce Bigalow

  • Didi

    i love the p~ubic fluff on his chin

  • Shmoo

    Wow. If Elijah Wood and my ex boyfriend had a love child and sprinkled it with gay dust it would look like that last picture.

    That being said, when he’s not looking like a Macho, Macho Man he’s very well spoken and candid and I can dig that.

  • mickey

    If only he really looked like that. Through the magic of technology, good lighting and ace photograpy he looks hot. In reality, he looks like pimply faced, dorky kid.

  • John Mirror

    he looks ugly on that fourth photo, but anyway, still love him. not that i would ‘do’ him, but i just like him as a person. long live harry potter ;))

  • black


    He looks so gay in that leather west. He should have put on something under it.

    As for the rest of the pictures, well…..I havn´t seen them close up yet…a bit strange yes….not really cool.

    Except for the cover- that looks really cool- his best shot yet.

    But I don´t really get him.

    What does he want?
    For the media not to bother him, or the people not to go crazy on him?

    Then why the hell does he make tsuff like this?
    He fears being seen with a girl but he´s constantly doing strange shoots (or nude plays…) which are expected to shock.

    So just make up your mind boy.

    Don´t rub it in our face.

    And again I can only say, being naked does not make you a grown-up!

    (but he sure as hell has been working out…)

  • Mrs. Fugly

    Hee Hee! I’ll be his dominatrix! He is one fucking sexy hot young dude! Damn hot! Least, he is not waxed. Waxed guys look more gay to me.

  • Mama Bear

    So, the guy has pubes…get over it.

  • funny

    LMAO @ everyones comments.

    didnt he just through puberty give the guy a break. im 23 and i still notice how my face is changing but then again he is not that cute! LOL

    I can’t stop laughing at some of the comments on here. deuce bigalow~ paedophile~ gay leatherdaddy LMFAO!! I couldn’t put it better myself!

  • kate.

    shirtless would be way better than that vest,



  • moi

    He’s the same age as me, and that does NOTHING for me at all. Nothing except makes me want to bring up my breakfast. Leather *shudders*

  • sophie

    daniel is really not looking too bad these days…i like the cover.

  • ady

    that vest makes him look gay, but he looks cute (not the vest pic)

  • wing

    he was a blonde and was much cuter that way.

  • KD

    He is signaling GAY with the leather an made-up face. And that’s OKAY.

  • dayday
