You grew up with him as Harry Potter, and now Daniel Radcliffe is taking a stab at playing the romantic male lead in What If, minus the glasses, scar, and wizard robe.
Everyone hopes that child stars turn out to be decent human beings with substantial adult careers, and Radcliffe is the prime example of an adult success story. He’s also become a regulation hottie. Sure, he had some awkward haircuts in between the Potter films while growing up, but this 25-year-old has really came into his own of late, and can’t help but turning heads with his scruffy beard and charming smile. If you’re lucky, you may have even seen him strut his stuff (shirtless!) in one of his three Broadway shows (Equus, How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, The Cripple of Inishmaan). Yes, Harry Potter has gone full-blown hot on us and there seems to be no turning back. Take a look at DanRad’s physical transformation, from bespectacled child star to hunky leading man, in the gallery above.
If you can’t stop thinking about Dan, watch him regale Big Morning Buzz Live host Nick Lachey with stories of his skinny dipping adventures. (Get your mind out of the gutter!)
