Daniel Radcliffe: I won’t take clothes off for latest role


Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe said he put his foot down when asked to strip off for his latest role, as he has shown too much already.

The 24-year-old actor shed his clothes for three films, Horns, The F Word and Kill Your Darlings and is now starring opposite Mad Men’s Jon Hamm in A Young Doctor’s Notebook and Other Stories.

“There was a discussion about possible nudity for a scene and my comment was, ‘I got naked in three films last year, please can I not?’,” he said, adding: “... everyone’s going to start assuming I’m an exhibitionist”.
