Daniel Radcliffe — Equus — Pictures
HMG* (*Holy Mother of God)
Daniel Radcliffe stars in the stage production of Equus in the West End. I am so speechless right now. Oh Harry Potter! Where can I find an application to Hogwarts?! It’s a gay nerd fantasy come true… with horses! I can’t breathe!
(More NSFW | Not Safe for the Children pics after the jump)
Got Something to Add?
Well first of all, might I say.... Damn! I was already a fan of Mr Radcliffe due to Harry Potter, but he just made me a even bigger fan. That boy has a nice body, my only complain is his ass looks a little weird, but not enough to destroy a fantasy... :D
Now someone convince Rupert Grint to do that... and I'll be a happy woman. I am a big fan of him too.
Like, OMG. I seriously canNot believe he did that! yeah sure he's grown up nicely but... those pics make me really uncomfortable. *shudders*. but yeah, he's HOT!!
Okay, I'm thirteen. I know that a lot of people are saying, "Oh gosh, what kind of impact is this going to have on the children? They're going to be /ruined/" Have these people forgotten what it's like to be a teen or pre-teen? I'm sure when they were younger, they were exposed to a lot worse things than this, just like kids my age are now. I've seen plenty of documentaries or movies that are much worse than this. Besides, if you have young children and don't want them to see the play, don't see the play. It's as simple as that. I can't understand why this is such a big deal.
I am an adult and I think its great on one level that Daniel is branching out. I agree he needs some more meat on his bones though.
I also think, for me anyway, the HP image will not be tarnished.....and I am a huge HP fan. Daniel just isnt Harry without the clothes/robes or glasses.
In fact without glasses he threw me right off! But that could be just me.
Harry is a character people....Daniel is NOT Harry!! If your kids are confused there is something very wrong with your parenting. My kids get it just fine. My 12 yr old has seen all of these pics. She knows that Harry is a person from a book and that Daniel is a totally separate entity. Heck, I think even my 4 yr old understands that!
Geez, let the poor kid at least try to branch out before typecasting and pigeon-holing him.
I think Daniel is too young to play in this film (because in this film he appers without clothes...), but it's just my opinion. If i were he I wouldn't accept it, even because of... And for many poeple who like Harry Potter movies can not imagine in this situation, and there are many many children who followed the story of Harry and they imagine themself to be Harry, and Harry become an ideal. ...an they parent won't let them to see this film...or Harry is still their ideal and they will do the same as Daniel in his new film........but for teenagers over 17 will enjoy the film, and it's ok, but for young children until about 13( i think ) it means that they can do the same...
I think it is terrific that Daniel is taking this brave new role. Good for him. I think he is a good actor. I would not want his career to turn out like Macauly Culkin's.
He is just showing to the world that he is more than Harry Potter. In which he will.
Keep up the good work Daniel.
Wow, Daniel has grown up quite a bit! As an actress, I think that this is a very very bold step that he's taking to be a grown-up actor. It's his life and if he feels that this is necessary to furthur his career, which he obviously loves, because he wouldn't be doing it if he didn't, then more power to him! Life is way too short to be held back because of other people.
Also, some people on here might want to remember that in Europe, people are a lot more comfortable with their bodies, and also nudity is a lot more acceptable.
And just so you know, I'm 19, soon to be 20. Is it gross that I'm saying it? I've had a crush on Daniel since I was about 14 and I saw him in Harry Potter. Then again, I also have an insane crush on Brian May from Queen, so maybe I'm just weird...
wow DeniseD. it seems like you feel very strongly about how its gross adults think he is attractive. Its not like he is 10 or something and a child. this summer he will be 18 and legally an adult so maybe then miraculously you will think it is less creepy. He isn't "just a boy" like you say. Have you seen his little stint he did on the Ricky Gervais comedy "Extras"? If you haven't then don't because you will probably find some of the things he says and does on that episode not suitable for a "boy". He was hilarious and a typical horny 17 year old. No one is blind here and any adult would be lying if they said they didnt notice that some teenage actor their daughter liked was cute.
I think its because he has such a baby face that even though we know he is almost 18 he still looks young.
I mean I know everyone can't help what they feel on stuff like this. I just think the people who are so against it shouldn't take it so seriously...that's all.
Bravo, Dan! The young man is an actor and I admire his stepping way out of the HP realm - the Equus role requires talent and courage. The nudity is essential to the story. And the publicity photos are beautiful - truly stunning!
Telling me to turn off the Internet sounds like you consider everything ok in here because it's available. Sad. I don't ban the pictures, I just said they disturb me.
Post #18 said it best, "He's GROWING up to be a very handsome guy." I'm a little grossed out that adults are thinking this is a good move, and even more disturbing, that he looks hot. All I see is a boy, who probably started driving a car a year ago.
Sorry if I offend anyone. :)
Info on the play this is from is here
I think he's growing up to be a very handsome guy. He could use a little bit more weight to help build a little more muscle... but he's still a very nice looking guy.
And good for him for wanting to do different things with his career. As many others have mentioned. Harry Potter can't last forever.. and I'm sure as an actor, he wants to branch out and try new things to make sure people will take him as a serious actor.
So yeah.. good for him!
I think it its a good thing he is doing this. 17 is way old enough to decide on your own what career choices you want to make. 17 thats a junior or senior in high school. if you think guys at that age are innocent or dont think about sex well you are living on another planet.
I agree that the Harry Potter thing won't last forever and everyone needs to start getting used to the fact that he wants to work after the films are over. Its going to be so hard for people to see him as something other than Harry P.
For those of you who think its gross..grow up. This isnt the only play that has nudity and from what ive read about the play itself its sort of integral to the plot.
Its just this image people have of him. they want him to stay 12 and innocent all his life because of a movie he is in. thats starting to lose hold of reality..he is playing a character people.
anyway thats my 2cents. =)
he is growing up nicely by the way.
If these pictures are illegal, I guess they are going to have a hell of a time putting on the play.
Please, anyone who gets all upset about these pictures needs to get out more. And whatever you do, don't even look up what the play is actually about, because your head will explode.
If your purity is threatened by such things, climb back into your little hole and turn off the Internet.
Holy cow. I'm speechless. Part of me is thrilled about how hot he looks but I think at the same time, my image of squeaky-clean Harry Potter is kind of .. errr .. let's say .. temporarily damaged? O_o
He is a nice looking young man. And I don't understand why he has to wait till Harry Potter is over with to do something else. At least at 17 he is old enough to make decisions on his own without his mother calling the shots. I think it's good for him. And if folks don't like it they don't have to see the play and/or look at the pictures.
At least wait until the Harry Potter days are over! Brooke Shields? We all know her mother was an A hole and those pics were disgusting. Can't really see what you're comparing.
Well, all I can say is 'Holy Crap!' Who would have thought the geeky boy would look like this?
And now I must go take a shower, for I am having unclean thoughts....
Okay, here I go showing my age. I can't believe how upset folks are getting over this deal that Daniel is doing. I am nearing 40 (too quickly at that) and therefore I remember all the crap that came about when Brooke Shields did a nude scene at a very younger age than what Daniel is right now. I believe she was only 13 or 14 at the time. Her mother gave her permission to do the scenes. I think it's great Daniel is doing this, Harry Potter can't last forever.
lol, indeed is a gay nerd fantasy come true hehe,
I can't believe how much he's grown up over the years, time seems to travel so fast.
These pic's make me feel just uncomfortable. The boy is still just 17 you know, and that sort of sexually oriented pictures could be considered illegal at least in here.
Yeah, us fangirls over at the Harry/Draco Facebook group were squealing over those pics the other day. Let's just say that Harry Potter has grown up VERY nicely. The jeans pic is my favourite. Those jeans... *swoons*
