Daniel Radcliffe really likes getting naked on camera, calls girlfriend his 'best friend'

By Daniel S Levine,

Daniel Radcliffe stars in the new What If with Zoe Kazan, so he’s doing the usual rounds of interviews and getting bizarre questions. He was recently asked if he enjoys doing nudity, which he has done a lot of since leaving the Harry Potter movies behind. He even stripped down on the stage for Equus.

“I can't get enough of it!” he told E! News on Wednesday when asked if nudity is something he considers when picking new projects.

Radcliffe further explained that it’s not something he particularly goes out of his way to do, but being open to it helps him lose his inhibitions.

“I did the play where I got naked when I was 17, once you do that you don't really care,” he said. “It immunes you to any inhibitions. Again, not something I seek out but never something I'm going to shy away from.”

While speaking to People this week, he got a chance to gush about his relationship with girlfriend Erin Darke. He said that the two are now best friends and he likes it that way.

“I'm going out with my best friend at the moment. And that's, I think, the way it should be,” he told the magazine.

The actor also draws inspiration from his parents, who have been married for over 30 years and said that they were best friends before they began dating.

“If you can get to a point where you're dating or married to somebody you consider your best friend, that's what will make it work,” Radcliffe said.

You can check out What If, which does feature a PG-13-rated skinny dipping scene, in select theaters this weekend. The film was directed by Michael Dowse.
