After rumors circulated that Daniel Radcliffe masturbated while on the set of Harry Potter, the actor is setting the record straight. Talks of his onset “me time” breaks stemmed from an interview with Playboy, in which he discussed the difficulties of finding a good place to engage in the act as a horny teenager. Many assumed he was referring to the time he spent filming the beloved J.K. Rowling adaptations, but that appears to be completely false.
According to Mashable, he cleared up those rumors in a recent interview with NME. “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,” he said. “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 might have been some wand play while filming Harry Potter, just not on the set.
