London: Daniel Radcliffe, who had earlier stripped for psychological drama ‘Equus’ on the West End stage, has maintained that he’s very comfortable in his own skin as he prepares to bare all for his art once again. The ‘Harry Potter’ actor looks set for more naked escapades in his new film ‘Kill Your Darlings’.

“I’m comfortable with my body. It’s funny, actually, I’ve just been having a discussion with the guy who’s directing my new project,” a leading daily has quoted him as saying.

“It might have a bit of nudity and he said: ‘Just to let you know, if you’re getting naked, no landscaping of any kind. This is the 1940s and you’re playing a Jew.’ I was like, ‘Pretty much there anyway, mate! Not a huge amount of maintenance going on.’ I mean, there’s a little bit, obviously, for courtesy. This is way too much information, but I don’t like girls with nothing down there either. It freaks me out. You have to have something, otherwise it’s f****** creepy,” he said.

In the interview with a magazine, the 22-year-old also revealed that he would never be able to compete with Potter co-star Rupert Grint’s new muscular body.

“I’m not going to try to compete with Rupert on the arms front. His dad is a big guy, so if anyone was going to get the proper muscleman build, it was Rupert,” he said.

“You’d have to search pretty hard to find a more handsome ginger. He’s also a dude. I wish I could be that calm. I’m lucky to have found an industry where this level of hyperactivity is encouraged. Otherwise I’d just be a f****** nuisance!” he added.
