I Read The News Today. Oh, BOY!

This is from The Daily Mail's coverage of Equus, which is getting ready to open in London.

Gina said...

YES! That's Daniel Radcliffe--Harry Potter! Who was born in 1989, just weeks after I graduated from high school.

Liz said...

Oh God!

(averts eyes)

I cannot look at naked Harry.

Please promise me that is NOT the cover for the last HP book.

Gina said...

You know, I felt icky watching him in that huge bath tub in the Goblet of Fire movie. THIS makes me feel like a dirty old woman!

BabelBabe said...

it gets worse - are you familiar with the play Equus? It is downright creepy.

I may be a dirty old woman, but whoa - he looks amazing. If only I didn't know the damn play...then I could FOCUS.

Oh ugh. I checked him out before I realized who he was.

I'm a pervert! Argh.

Paula said...

Oh my.

Katy said...

thanks Gina. And, wow, he is only 17 years old in that picture. Even *I* am a dirty old woman looking at that picture.

Katya said...

Oh my God! I can't believe that! I knew he was going to be in that play, but good Lord!

Badger said...

He was born in EIGHTY-NINE? That makes me want to say a very bad word.

In '89 I wasn't even in COLLEGE anymore. I was a big grownup with an APARTMENT and a REAL JOB and sh*t.

Oh God. I need a drink.

"Equus, son of Neckwus, son of Fleckwus..."

"Behold, I give you Equus, my only begotten son."

A creepy play, well, perhaps, but I do love it. The photo -- way too literal, but what do you expect from a commercial production that's selling tickets because he's in it? Which irritates me, too, because it's a strong play no matter the 'star,' provided Alan and Strang are strong enough actors. I do think Radcliffe is going to do great things with the character.

Sweet Fancy Moses!

Gina, you and I are in the same boat--I too graduated in 1989. I knew my students were young, but this makes me feel really, really old. And dirty. Really, really dirty.

Joke said...

Aha!

Unlike many of you, I don't feel like an ancient pervert. I feel like walking up to DR and telling him to please do a few pushups if he's gonna go starkers.

And I got my MBA in 1989.
