Long before anyone cared about Vanessa Hudgens nude pictures, critics were shocked that Daniel Radcliffe would bare it all in the play Equus.
In a recent interview with the Associated Press, though, the Harry Potter star says nudity is no big deal for him anymore. We hope Eva Longoria soon takes the same attitude.
AP: So what’s all this about you doing Equus on Broadway?
Radcliffe: Yeah, absolutely, hopefully. It’s not absolutely certain yet, as nothing ever is, but yeah, that’s definitely the plan. I’ll be starting Harry Potter 6 and then that will go to the year 2040, and then after a few months — there’s probably going to be a few months’ gap in between that — and then Equus on Broadway. It should start late next year.
AP: Is it cold on that stage?
Radcliffe: (Smiles) Yes, it’s very well air-conditioned.
AP: There’s shrinkage?
Radcliffe: (Smiles again) There is an element of retraction, certainly.
AP: After the first time, I’m guessing, you get over this a bit.
Radcliffe: Oh yeah, you don’t care. I don’t care — I’ve done it 128 times [or the same number of times Britney Spears crotch shots have popped up].
AP: But everybody else cared and everybody else freaked out when you first got naked.
Radcliffe: It was hilarious.
AP: Why is that, do you think?
Radcliffe: ‘Cause, I don’t know, maybe they want me to be Peter Pan and stay young forever, some people.
AP: And tabloids have fun with puns, of course.
Radcliffe: They want puns, yeah, you can have lots of fun with them.
Let’s try one now: Daniel Radcliffe? More like Daniel Naked-cliffe!
