Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is clearly trying hard to ditch his boy wizard image.
The 19-year-old actor confessed in a revealing interview to losing his virginity to an older woman - whose age would raise eyebrows.
Radcliffe admitted he celebrated reaching the age of consent, 16, in the customary manner with a much older girlfriend.
But although he insisted the age difference 'wasn't ridiculous', he did say it 'would freak some people out'.

In an interview with US style bible Details, he also admitted he'd like to try his hand at playing a drag queen.
The 19-year-old actor confessed he would love to play a cross-dresser just so he could wear lots of slap and eye make up.
'I think part of me would love to play a drag queen,' he says in the September issue of Details magazine. 'Just because it would be an excuse to wear loads of eye make-up.'
Radcliffe, who has spent eight years playing Harry Potter, is soon to start a run of Equus on Broadway, New York.
He will be on stage eight times a week, with full frontal nudity, just as he did in the hit London production. But that will be about as wild as he plans to get.
The actor , who is known for living a quiet life and not succumbing to the wild party scene said vodka and Diet Coke was his beverage of choice, because he was a 'pansy-ass civilian'.
Radcliffe also told Details that the Harry Potter phenomenon had not left him with child star angst - but confessed he suffered from the normal teen problems.
'For the most part I've been happy every single day,' he said. '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.'
And although he will soon be playing psychiatric patient Alan Strang eight times a week, he said he had never spent any time on the couch himself.
'I've been pretty happy. I've got a great family,' he said.'We're a very tight-knit group. We work very well as a team and as a tribe. I owe it to that.'
Radcliffe added that he was currently single, and does not have room for a girlfriend in his life.'Most of my friends have been girls and I see how they are with their boyfriends and I think 'I couldn't do that,' he said.
The actor's desire to play a drag queen is a far cry from his role as the boy wizard in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire
