Daniel Radcliffe Discusses His Manscaping Regimen: “A Little Bit, Obviously, For Courtesy”

I’m comfortable with my body. I’ve just been having a discussion with the guy who’s directing my new project. 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.’

I’m 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 kind of freaks me out. You have to have something, otherwise it’s f—ing creepy.

Daniel Radcliffe talks about going nude for his new project, Kill Your Darlings, in which he plays frequently naked gay beat poet Allen Ginsberg

    I didn’t know they even HAD nudity in the 1940’s :)

    Hollywood has gotten really creepy with this. It’s like they want all the men to look like overdeveloped 10 year olds. Good for Radcliff.

    It’s really all about personal taste and preference. If we start using the “leave it natural” argument or you just look like an “over-developed ten year old” scree then we all sound like hypocrites. After all, there are lots of guys with little body hair (even in the pubic area) — should they have body topees made so they don’t look like “overdeveloped ten year olds”? The same argument could be made (and is in some cultures) that a grown man shaving his face is effeminate and/or “childish”. …go figure.

    To each their own. I prefer smooth bodies myself and not because I have fantasies of getting it on with a pre-adolescent either (yuck!!!), but rather because I don’t care to be hacking up hairballs after lovemaking like a sick cat. Still…whatever floats your boat.

    An ex used to shave himself because he thought I’d find him more attractive that way.

    I told him it was a lot of trouble, because it didn’t matter to me either way.

    But he was willing to do that: to please me. Was that sexy? Hell yes.

    @Take-Back-Christopher-Street: Well put Christopher. I used to hate the idea of shaving because it seemed like trying to make yourself look like a little boy. Then I tried it once, and it just feels so great. Now I shave perhaps once every year or so, just as a bit of fun.

    I’d rather a hairy man than the teenage boy look–it’s creepy.

    I like a guy to have a nice, athletic, fit build (don’t find the roided up, muscle mary thing hot at all). I also like a guy to have pubic hair, not a big, nasty bush, but hair. That totally hairless thing is kinda weird. I also like a little body hair, but I would much rather you be smooth, than a hairy beast. Why? Because I also like my fit, athletic guy to be clean and have good hygeine. To me, too much hair can be dirty and smelly. If it works for you, great. But I don’t like stinky, dirty guys.

    @vince: Mercy! Have you tried mannequins?
