Daniel Radcliffe helped the Harry Potter film franchise amass more than $7 billion worldwide. Here are some things he did not do while filming:

Daniel Radcliffe definitely did not pull on his portkey.

Daniel Radcliffe definitely did not buffer his broomstick.

Daniel Radcliffe definitely did not hammer his Horcrux.

Daniel Radcliffe definitely did not clean his cloak of invisibility.

Daniel Radcliffe definitely did not wax his wand.

Daniel Radcliffe definitely did not polish Penelope Clearwater’s mirror.

Daniel Radcliffe definitely did not scrub his Snitch.

Daniel Radcliffe definitely did not daub his Dementor.

…at least not until he got home from set.

In an interview with NME, Radcliffe cleared up a misconception that he spent time between takes masturbating, a rumor that stemmed from a Playboy Q&A segment published in October.

“I didn’t say I wanked on set!” he insisted. “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…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 that you have the necessary information for your records, here is what Radcliffe told Playboy:

“I think I started very early—before my teens. But not when I was on set..It would have been embarrassing to walk back on set and look the dignitaries of British acting royalty in the eye, knowing what I’d been doing.”

That doesn’t seem like it could be misinterpreted…?

This has been a Daniel Radcliffe autoerotica update.
