Radcliffe Blasts Prudish Fans

Daniel Radcliffe has slammed prudish fans who refuse to see his naked scenes in theatre show Equus - because he is sick of people branding the production "pornography".

The teen actor was required to disrobe on stage when he starred in the dramatic play Equus in London's West End last year - a role he'll soon reprise on Broadway.

And the star is shocked by the reaction of older female fans, insisting his nude scene is no big deal.

He says, "Offended mothers were calling in and saying I shouldn't be doing this, that they weren't going to see it."

"Ok, don't see it. They're are treating it like it's pornography and it's not. It's only seven minutes at the end of the play when I'm naked and I'm 19 now."
