Daniel Radcliffe would like to set the record straight: He did not indulge in self-gratification while filming “Harry Potter.”
And he’s also pretty envious of Eddie Redmayne‘s wardrobe for the upcoming “Harry Potter” prequel “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”
Radcliffe took time out during an interview with NME to clear up a misperception on the Internet sparked by a Playboy interview that he had, um, polished his wand while filming “Harry Potter.”
“It’s frustrating when you tell a story and say, ‘Yes, I wanked a lot when I was a teenager,’ but clearly I didn’t mean on set,” the actor said. “Can you make this clear for me: I was not wanking during the filming of Potter — I managed to restrain myself until I got home.”
Radcliffe also offered his thoughts on recently released images of Redmayne in costume as Newt Scamander in “Fantastic Beasts,” which is due for release next year.
“Oh fuck you, Eddie, in your brilliant costume … I got jeans and a zip top for 10 years and you’ve got a greatcoat already?” Radcliffe reflected.
Maybe the “Potter” producers were worried about stains?
