Daniel Radcliffe dropped a stack of weight for his role in the upcoming survival movie 'Jungle', and by his own admission, did so in a pretty daft manner.
In the new thriller Jungle, Radcliffe stars as Yossi Ghinsberg, the real-life adventurer whose trip with two friends to the Bolivian Amazon turned into the stuff of nightmares.
In 2009, Daniel Radcliffe got a significant amount of press for performing a full-frontal nude scene in Equus on Broadway.

Plucked from obscurity to star in the biggest franchise of all time, these young actors were barely tweenagers when they first appeared on-screen. See how they’ve changed…
Daniel Radcliffe’s new film ‘Imperium’ (in UK cinemas Friday) sees the ‘Harry Potter’ star as you’ve never seen him before. “I actually became weirdly more recognisable [with a skinhead],” Daniel told Yahoo Movies, “Even though I looked very different, I think my hair gives me a little bit of cover or something.
If anything has become clear in the five years since Daniel Radcliffe hung up the Hogwarts robe, it’s that the 26-year-old British actor loves mixing it up (also rapping, but more on that later).

Daniel Radcliffe’s age had barely hit double-digits when he won his life-changing role in the big-screen adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s massively popular Harry Potter book series. “He was very intimidating at first, when you first met him on set,” Radcliffe told Yahoo Movies this week while promoting his own villainous turn in the upcoming sequel Now You See Me 2.
James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe play BFFs Victor and Igor in this week’s ‘Victor Frankenstein’, so when we got the opportunity to talk to them both, rather than us blathering on at them, we had the bright idea of getting them to interview each other. Daniel plumped for Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, while James opted for Taylor Swift.
Despite being just 26 it feels as though Daniel Radcliffe has been in all of our lives for decades now. Radcliffe made his debut in ‘Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone’ all the way back in 2001. At the age of its release Daniel Radcliffe was just 12.
His folks initially turned down the audition, but series producer David Heyman spotted him in the audience at the theatre and the rest is history.
