Radcliffe In 'Cannabis' Scandal
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has shocked fans after he was allegedly photographed holding what appears to be a cannabis joint.
Photos have surfaced apparently depicting the 20-year-old actor with a rolled-up cigarette between his fingers, grinning as a pal draws a comedy moustache on his face at a house party. It is unclear when the images were snapped.
Radcliffe, who plays the boy wizard in the hit franchise, was said to have been letting loose at the bash, thrown at an apartment building in Camden, North London, by a friend of his ex-girlfriend Laura O'Toole.
According to a fellow partygoer, the star was laughing hysterically and walking around the flat in a daze after taking deep drags of the cigarette.
Wadia Tazi tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Daniel was laughing and seemed to find it funny. But he didn't really look like he knew what was going on. I was surprised by his behaviour."
The gathering ground to a halt after Laura and another man, believed to be Radcliffe's assistant, asked Tazi if he was shooting footage of the actor on his phone.
Tazi adds, "Laura was very protective. She said Daniel had a reputation to protect and couldn't ruin it. I presume she meant by being seen smoking. I said I didn't know what she was talking about. He (Daniel) didn't want us to recognise him, he looked pretty uncomfortable... But almost immediately afterwards she and Daniel left."
