Daniel Radcliffe wore padded undies July 22, 2007

Daniel Radcliffe had to wear padded underwear to protect his manhood while filming the latest Harry Potter movie.

The 17-year-old actor also needed easy access stripper-style trousers for scenes in which the teenage wizard takes to the skies on his broomstick.

Radcliffe said: “I had padded shorts under my trousers. I also other trousers that must have belonged to the Chippendales because they’ve got Velcro that rips apart to get the harness on for flying, then sticks back together.”

The young star’s assets were allowed much more freedom in his recent stint on the London stage in Equus. For his role as Alan Strang, who becomes erotically obsessed with a horse, Radcliffe had to bare all every night.

He said: “It was the most exhilarating thing I have ever done. I did it to shake up people’s perception of me. People tend to think I’m a Peter Pan figure, but I’m definitely not, I promise you.”

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is on cinemas worldwide.
