Daniel Radcliffe, Details Magazine

Steven Klein for Details Magazine

Daniel Radcliffe would like to, as gender-bender boys like to say, hide his candy.

The 19-year-old Brit, who has made an almost lifelong career playing Harry Potter, says he wouldn't mind doing some cross-dressing on the big screen.

"I think part of me would love to play a drag queen," Radcliffe says in the new issue of Details magazine, "just because it would be an excuse to wear loads of eye makeup."

That's not the only thing Mr. Radcliffe reveals...

He tells writer Chris Norris that he celebrated turning 16 (Britain's age of consent) with an older girlfriend.

While it doesn't sound like a Demi and Ashton situation—Radcliffe insists the age difference "wasn’t ridiculous"—he does admit "it would freak some people out."

Radcliffe hits Broadway later this month to star in Equus. And yes, he'll be onstage eight times a week baring his full frontal just as he did in the original London production.

When asked if he's ever been in therapy like Alan Strang, the psych patient he plays in Equus, Radcliffe boasts, "Please. No. Never. I've been pretty happy. I've got a great family. We're a very tight-knit group—we work very well as a team and as a tribe. I owe it to that."

Even the craziness of Harry Potter hasn't caused him any child star angst. "For the most part I've been happy every single day," Radcliffe insists. "And all the times I've been unhappy, it's never been anything to do with Potter. It's just been the normal, boring teenage crap. Insecurities, acne—all the normal stuff."
