Daniel Radcliffe Really Wants You To Know That He Didn't Masturbate On The Set Of "Harry Potter"

He really, really wants to clear this up.

So, in case your childhood hasn't quite been ruined enough just yet, about a month ago beloved national treasure and Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe did an interview with Playboy in which he discussed at length his teenage masturbation habits.

And the story was picked up by a lot of media outlets. A LOT.

Just FYI, what he actually said in the interview was this:

I think I started very early—before my teens. But not when I was on set. I wasn't going, "When is Alan Rickman going to nail this scene so I can run back to my trailer?" There's another feeling, again perfectly described by Louis C.K.: that fear just after you've jerked off that everyone knows what you did. It would have been embarrassing to walk back on set and look the dignitaries of British acting royalty in the eye, knowing what I'd been doing.

So, when DanRad found out about these rumours during a recent interview with NME, he took the opportunity to put them to rest.


He apparently hadn't seen the story, but immediately found it on his phone, and then said this:

I didn't say I wanked on set! Oh god ... 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 ... 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.

So, there you have it: Daniel Radcliffe 100% did not masturbate on the set of Harry Potter.
