London: `Harry Potter` star Daniel Radcliffe has had many bizarre fan encounters but says being chased till his washroom in Italy was the craziest.
The 24-year-old actor said the incident recently reminded him of a scene from comedy film `Monty Python`s Life of Brian`, reported Daily Express.
"Italy was crazy. We never did any press there for the (Harry Potter) films so there was 10 years of pent up energy and when I got there it just exploded," Radcliffe said during a show.
"It was incredible. At one point I needed the loo (toilet) and had to make a 100-yard dash and was immediately followed by a flash mob. I had a Life of Brian moment when I opened the toilet door and there were thousands of people standing outside waiting. It was all very surreal and mad as always," he added.
