Daniel Radcliffe on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Posted on August 01, 2014

Who knew that Daniel Radcliffe could make a pair of white, drop-crotch skinny jeans look pretty good?

But first, let us take a moment to pay our respects to his Very Hot Handler, who we will forevermore refer to as “Pecs McHollywood,” because what else would you call a bodyguard who hangs his sunglasses halfway down his unbuttoned shirt? Welcome to  T Lo, Pecs McHollywood. We look forward to seeing more of you. Pro-tip: Next time you’re walking into a swarm of paparazzi, discreetly tweak your nipples. You’ll get splashed all over the internet within hours.

Anyway, back to Daniel. We’re surprised not only that we like this look, but that he of all people is the one pulling it off. This could go douchey-twee very easily, but on him it looks respectable and a little chic. The only thing we’d change is the footwear. We don’t mind that he’s wearing something casual on his feet, but there are more interesting versions of that kind of shoe. And the simplicity of the outfit allows for a little experimentation in the footwear department.

You’re not even reading this, are you?

  • Be still, my twitching ovaries.

    • colleenjanel

      DRad, or Pecs McHollywood?
      (It’s sad when you’re upstaged by your handler)

      • Betsy

        25 points for Gryffindor!

      • Wink

        My thoughts exactly. Celebs should include a “no-employee-hotter-than-I-am” clause in their contracts.

        • Anna

          But the hot handlers brings us so much joy! If the celeb is hot already (ie Hiddles with a hot handler), then that’s a win-win. If it’s someone irritating like, Gaga or Tay-Tay, more often than not, the hot handler is the best part of their outfit.

          • Wink

            Yes, the hot handlers are a sight to behold. After Pecs McHollywood appeared in the third photo, I scrolled nervously… hoping he would be in more pics. TLo did not disappoint! (Was this supposed to be about Daniel Radcliffe?)

          • Anna

            Daniel does look very cute here, in that way you regard a younger cousin you’ve watched grow up over the years and go, “Awww, look at you!”

            Pecs, on the other hand, had me squirming uncomfortably in my chair as I kept scrolling down (and switching to other screens hoping it looked work-related when co-workers walked by so that it looks like I actually contribute to this company as opposed to judging celebrities/ogling muscular bodyguards all day).

          • marlie

            This, exactly.

          • MartyBellerMask

            You know what, I get that “watching them grow up” thing. That’s how i feel about Joseph Gordon Levitt. So I can’t find him hot.
            But I never watched the HP movies til about a year ago, when the hubby and I binge-watched them of the course of a few weeks. So yeah, I saw him as a child, but it’s not the same.
            This is how I justify finding Daniel Radcliffe hot. 😉

          • Anna

            I was in my early 20s when The Philospher’s Stone was released as a film, and had been a fan of the books for a number of years prior, so lusting after Daniel now would be weird for me (don’t have a problem with other people doing so). But I am going to apply your logic to the feelings I’ve been developing for Grant Gustin, who is a year younger than Daniel, but whom I never watched grow up on-screen LOL.

            As an aside, I could’t believe it when I learned that JGL is actually my age! Until I saw Inception, whenever he made an appearance I always thought, “Oh yeah, that cute dork from 3rd Rock from the Sun…” and assumed he was younger than me. Nice job growing up, JGL!

          • WendyD

            Points for Grant Gustin. I’m joining you in that “he’s young, but don’t care” party.

          • Anna

            I am struggling with, but embracing, these feelings 😉

          • demidaemon

            I justify it two ways:

            1) He is not that much younger than me.
            2) I was called Harry potter in college (and not in a completely complementary way), so I think I deserve to be allowed to consider the “real” HP hot.

          • irielle

            I feel that way about JGL too, thanks to 10 Things I Hate About You.

        • Betsy

          I like that he’s secure and confident enough to hire a hot handler. It’s gotta’ be like the male equivalent of hiring a sexy nanny.

          • Wink

            Yeah… not having a sexy nanny either. My nanny would look like Mrs. Doubtfire.

        • Janet B

          Maybe they should, but I’m happy they don’t!

        • demidaemon

          Well, it works if you discretely slash them in your head, despite the unlikeliness of it all. Yes, indeed.

      • Sobaika

        I’d take either, to be frank.

      • Both. Both is good.

    • Nazzzy

      I still miss Gaga’s HGH. She’s simply no fun to look at since he left the picture

      • Lisalady161

        But she has tall, bald and chiseled now, and he’s hot, too!

  • …how does one go about hiring a Pecs McHollywood…?

    • TonyGo

      You might want to ask Lea Michele.

  • Hmmmmm …wha? Oh yes. Shoes. That’s it.

  • colleenjanel

    Pecs McHollywood looks like the real star in these pics, and DRad looks like the flunkie who has to chase down lattes for him.

    • shakins

      Maria . you think Leonard `s storry is inconceivable,last thursday I bought a great Alfa Romeo from having made $4878 this last five weeks and-even more than, 10-k this past-munth . this is certainly the coolest job I have ever had . I began this 9-months ago and almost immediately began to make more than $75 per-hour . For more information click FINANCIAL REPORT in ………. PAYRAP.ℭℴℳ

    • crush on you

      That bodyguard *was* hired because of his looks; I mean, how wouldn’t you notice him? DRad wants us to focus on somebody else. That’s perfectly fine by me, but honestly, the comparison’s not doing him a lot of favors.

  • I think the thing about the relative success of Dan’s ensemble, is that it isn’t exaggerated. They may be skinny drop-crotch jeans, but they aren’t super-skinny with the crotch at his knees, the way Spawn of Smith would have worn them.

    • Victor Beiramar Diniz

      that, and the fit of the jacket that is spot on. actually, for me it’s the jacket that really makes the all thing quite chic

    • demidaemon

      My only problem with the outfit is that it slightly stumpifies him, but I’m not sure if I can completely blame it on the pants, his tininess, or the implicit comparisons with everyone around him.

  • misstressofsylar

    This is honestly the first time I found grown-up Daniel Radcliffe hot. My 11 year old inner child is very happy! BTW, LaineyGossip has a great article on how nice he was when he visited their talk show. Nice to know he’s such a gentleman!

    • fursa_saida

      I’m amazed, too. I almost find him hot here. Although the trailer for Horns was promising in that department, I thought.

  • Ron Zank

    If everyone distracted by Pecs means I can spirit Daniel away, so be it.

    • boweryboy

      I was so distracted by Daniel’s cuteness I didn’t notice Pecs McHollywood. I had to scroll back up.

      • Raspberry2012

        The inherent problem for me is that Daniel is half my age, but aside from that, he’s more my type than Pecs McHollywood.

        • boweryboy

          Same here.

    • fiddlecub

      I’m down with foursome if you are.

  • Barbara Affolter

    The crotch on the pants isn’t cartoonishly dropped. I think that helps.

    I’d let Pecs cartoonishly drop my crotch.

    I’d like to see Daniel in a brightly colored Chuck, maybe?

    I’d like to see Pecs enjoying a bubble bath. At my house. In 45 minutes, if we can manage that.

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    I want to put Pecs McHollywood into a wet t-shirt contest.

  • I’ll take one of each. Was anyone really thinking about their clothes? I mean , really?

  • Betsy

    The fact that I’m a Harry Potter geek notwithstanding, Daniel looks adorable. I’m also skewed by the fact that I’ve read he’s one of the nicest actors in Hollywood which is no small feat for a former child star.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      Have you watched A Young Doctor’s Notebook with him and Jon Hamm?…sooo good 🙂

      • Betsy

        What is this of which you speak??! Off to Google. And You Tube.

        • schadenfreudelicious

          Its a British dark comedy and for some unknown reason not very well known, it should be though, both Radcliffe and Hamm are hilarious. I can see it not being to everyone’s taste, but i love it

        • Munchkn

          It’s on Ovation in the States. The new season starts on the August 18.

          • schadenfreudelicious

            I think its carried on iTunes as well (I am in Canada so we often see the British offerings on NF before the US)

        • julnyes

          It is available on Netflix. It is quite funny, but when they say “Dark Comedy”, they mean DARK.

        • MartyBellerMask

          Jon Hamm was just promoting it on Jimmy Fallon. God I love Jon Hamm. He is so damn funny. I think dramatically, he will always be typecast as a Don Draper type, but he’s a comic treasure. A TREASURE. It’s rare that someone can do both.

          • schadenfreudelicious

            That is great to hear, it deserves a much wider audience, and you are right, Hamm is equally adept at drama and comedy.

      • Oh my God, we stumbled across this on Netflix and fell in LOVE. I wish there were more than 8 episodes, it’s amazing.

        • schadenfreudelicious

          I had the same experience, came across it on NF and binge watched the entire thing…it’s a little gem, dark comedy at its best!

          • I’m geeking out to have found someone that has heard of it and watched it! “Drops! What is it with you people and drops? Drops do nothing! Doctors only give drops when they have no idea know what else to do!””

          • schadenfreudelicious

            Me too! I keep telling people about it and no one has even heard of it!!..I will make myself sound like an even bigger geek by saying I had read the book on which it is based ages ago (by Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov) and I highly recommend it along with his other classic work Master and Margarita (I could only dream that would ever appear on the screen 🙂 Ha, and yes the “drops”..too funny..shows the versatility of both Radcliffe and Hamm that they can pull off drama and comedy equally well..the supporting cast is a dream too!

      • AmeliaEve

        Ooooh! Thank you, bookmarked!

      • Julie Chase

        This is why I love this site-queued!

        Also, DR is ADORABLE and seems so sweet. I just rewatched the episode of Extras where he tries to appear grownup and pulls out an unwrapped condom to impress the ladies.

      • demidaemon

        He’s played a very good variety of roles since HP, which is both smart and cool. I still want to see his turn as Allen Ginsburg, but I’ve forgotten the name of the movie.

    • Violina23

      Yes. This. I want him to be my cousin so we can hang out and sing show-tunes. He’s adorable!

    • He hired Pecs McHollywood out of niceness. Guy couldn’t get a job when all the other bitches didn’t want the spotlight taken away.

    • All_Hail_Great_Satin

      He’s also a Tom Lehrer fan, which instantly won me over.

    • fursa_saida

      DanRad has a strong track record of saying on-point things. Also, the whole thing recently where he was being papped everywhere with about 50 dogs was hilarious. It was for a movie, but he made no effort to explain it. Just stared down the camera with his 50 dogs.

  • Anna

    Yes, I’ll have the Pecs McHollywood combo with some extra hash browns and a large coffee, to go please.

  • In_Stitches

    How big is Pecs McHollywood? He makes poor Harry Potter look like a hobbit and…wait, wrong franchise. He makes him look like a house elf!

    Oh, Daniel’s outfit? I think it’s the rare case of a neckbeard helping diffuse the otherwise douche-y elements of the look. Had he trimmed his neck, the whole thing would tip over into ‘try hard’. As is, it’s pretty great.

    • Kristin McNamara

      Most people DO make Daniel look like a house elf. The poor dear is only like, 5’4″ 🙁

      • schadenfreudelicious

        He is a wee boy for sure, that entire crowd is towering over him!

      • Raspberry2012

        5’5″ according to IMDB! Poor guy, he’s short enough that he needs that extra inch! (Heh…)

        • Don’t boy actors always round up? So he’s 5’3″ in thick socks.

  • Just Me

    Let’s play a game: Very Hot Handler was soooo hot…

    • colleenjanel

      How hot was he??????

      • Just Me

        He was soooo hot, I saw a little man in an orange robe burst into flames!

    • Betsy

      That Fawkes the Phoenix spontaneously combusted and failed to regenerate!

  • I’ve never found him cute before but wow, there is something awesome going on around his eyes.. I don’t even mind the slightly overgrown eyebrows which says a lot because I normally find that unattractive.. 🙂

    Loving that haircut as well – his hair is very flopsy aka Hugh Grant circa Notting Hill..

    • Anna

      I have a new appreciation for Daniel after this morning.

  • RussellH88

    I think it works because everything else is pretty basic and polished.

  • Anna

    White pants on a man are normally an article of clothing that causes my vagina to shrivel back into my uterus. Also, DRad has never inspired lust for me. But apparently these two elements together are some sort of magic combination cause it’s working for me on SO many levels this morning. Keep those pants Dan.

    • Kristin McNamara

      Pun intended? He is a wizard, after all.

      • Anna

        Subconscious pun, apparently.

  • I love you guys.

    I also love Dan, even though I am about four inches taller than him. Oh, who cares? That black-on-black blazer-shirt combo is hot.

  • colleenjanel

    Pic #3 makes it look like Pecs McHollywood has freakishly large forearms. I dunno, maybe he does.

  • sherrietee

    Dear sweet lord Pecs is amazingly hot. Daniel is quite adorable too. Far too young for me, but adorable.

  • Pecs McHollywood is wearing my dad’s boat shoes from the 80s.

  • SugarSnap108

    Most of my attention is being drawn toward Pecs McHollywood’s moccasins. What’s wrong with me?

    • Janet B

      Here’s where my mind went:
      He should wear those shoes with some shorts, short shorts. On a boat, or near a lake or beach….
      I’m banking on those thighs looking good in shorts.

      • In_Stitches

        I think he’s earned the title, “The Thigh Master”.

    • kimmeister

      You’re a die hard shoe gal? Because I am and I did the same thing. And I don’t like either pair of shoes on display here.

      • SugarSnap108

        I do get emotional about shoes. And I agree on both pairs of shoes here.

  • Radish

    Hellloooooo boydguard.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Pecs McHollywood took my attention away from Daniel. I blame the white pants. They remind me of too-small, crotch-gapping tights. You ladies know what I’m talking about.

    • Gatto Nero

      Mm-hmm. And the dropped crotch has the effect of shortening his legs a bit.

    • Pennymac

      Yes. Those cheap ass things–no matter how high you hoik the waistband, the crotch stays between the knees.

  • Kate Andrews

    what’s that about shoes? sighhhhh.

  • Lilah

    Flock of Seagulls

  • Jacob Bowen

    Lookin’ good DanRad….and he was even more pretty upclose. He was PHENOMENAL in “How to Succeed at Business Without Really Trying” and since then I have the utmost respect (and attraction) for him. A song and dance man who seems down to earth is my kind of man.

    • Snailstsichr

      He shone in Equis, too. I was sad I couldn’t make it to NY for his latest Broadway offering.

      • Jacob Bowen

        I wish I had seen Equis too, because I saw a local production of it (which was terrible) but I liked the actual show. And who would object to seeing a bit of DRad nude on stage?

  • Alyssa

    I was totally prepared to comment about Daniel, but then I saw Pecs McHollywood and lost my ability to think. I want one!

  • gingerella

    On a slow day, mayhaps the Uncles would consider doing a post on handler fashion?

  • mjude

    Daniel looks great. Good Morning Mr. Pecs McHollywood!

  • Karen Belgrad

    There’s a celebrity in these photos? I see nothing but Pecs McHollywood.

  • marlie

    Daniel looks great, but HELLO PECS MCHOLLYWOOD.

  • Tlazolteotl

    Ah, Sausage Friday. Thank you, Uncles.

  • Zi Jie Tan

    Google has many, many photos of Pecs McHollywood with Dan. *drools*

  • Frank_821

    oooh that very hot handler indeed

  • MilaXX

    You had me at Pecs McHollywood. As for Dan, I’d have preferred a pair of vans but otherwise he’s fine.

  • Frank_821

    OMG I am having some terribly fantasies now involving both Daniel and Pecs Hollywood

  • Raspberry2012

    “You’re not even reading this, are you?”

    Hm? Did you say something, Uncles?

  • Guest

    I’m losing my faith in you TLo, there is not one attribute to this look that is redeeming. I hope Daniel just got laid by Pecs, cause he looks a mess. He could stand a brow wax, shave, and a comb. His pants are douchey, shoes are ugly, and he is totally upstaged by Pec’s look.

  • Leslie Streeter

    They look like ladypants in the way they fit the crotch, like there are things the pants are not cut to fit around, you know? Meh.

  • tallgirl1204

    I dunno. I kinda think the geeky guy in the suit is more interesting.

  • Lisalady161

    Between Daniel McCutie and Pecs McHollywood giving major deathstare to a paparazzo, wait, were you saying something?

  • julnyes

    Daniel looks great, I love his hairstyle. The handler is generically attractive, but I get the fervor over him even if it passes me by (I have a very short list of blond men I find attractive).

  • Vanessa Reyes

    I can see a T Lo calendar in the making “Very Hot Handlers of 2015”. Mr. Pecs McHollywood could be Mr. December ; ) …..This is a good look for Daniel and I agree with T Lo on the shoes.

  • MartyBellerMask

    Oh, well played, Harry Potter. WELL PLAYED. Pecs McHollywood was a great find. Keep him and the two of you will go far together.
    But really, Daniel is absolutely adorable. I have no idea how he is pulling off those pants but he is. It’s got to be the hair.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Pecs is a good start to a Friday! Hellooooooo, Pecs, new friend. Also, Radcliffe is looking great and his hair is giving me Hugh Grant floppy cuteness.

  • fananafanafophalec

    are those actually drop crotch or just not tailored properly for a short person?

    • alyce1213


  • Erin Schubert Needham

    Pecs looks like what I want Ryan Gosling to look like.

    • Violentcello

      I can see that. I was thinking more Dominic Monaghan.

      Someone needs to get to work on a Hot Beefcake Handler instagram so we can get our fill in between Sausage Fridays.

  • siriuslover

    He looks great, but I generally dig his style choices anyway. That last picture, he looks like he’s giving directions. And I like hot handler, too!

  • quiltrx

    Can I just say that Daniel’s hair looks absolutely magical here? A little funky and more mature looking–I like it a lot.
    But then I forgot what I was supposed to be looking at when I got to the third picture. Pecs’ entire outfit looks like he came here from a late 80s prep school, but somehow I don’t even care.

    • Pennymac


  • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

    Daniel Radcliffe is adorable.

  • Radcliffe’s got cute hair, but he desperately needs to realize that the transition of scruff to neckbeard makes him look chinless and dirty. You can keep your scruff, Danny, but it’s gotta end at your jawline.

  • World of Sass

    A dude wearing boat shoes hasn’t made me this horny since my good-old-boy crush from middle school.

  • alyce1213

    He’s so damn cute. I have a feeling those aren’t drop-crotch pants, but regular jeans that are too long for his wee self.

  • JauntyJohn

    Well, well, well… looks like Gaga’s handlers just got some smokin’ hot competition, in the completely-made-up-but-totally-important-anyway Bitter Kitten Handler Off.

    And DR looks terrific.

  • Kerry McCombs

    All I can see when I look at Very Hot Handler is THIGHS. Yummo. Daniel looks adorably doofy.

  • Lily

    I was all about Pecs McHollywood until I got to the old topsiders sans socks. Reminds me of a boss we used to call “Toe Cheese.” Anyhoo, agree on the footwear choice for Mr. Rad. Something a la 80s alt with a slightly pointed toe and even raised shoe bed might work here. Or classic Doc Martens.

    Oh, Daniel Radcliffe is in these? I was momentarily distracted. I kid, he looks great.

  • Monabel

    I never understood the D. R. love. He always seemed insipid and stiff as an actor.

  • Pennymac

    Nope, I stopped reading after Pecs McHollywood was dubbed. Mr. Radcliff looks so teensey-weensey next to Mr.P McH!

  • traceyishere

    Who is the REAL star here?

  • dwbsfo

    Pecs’ real name is Sam. The New York Times Magazine ran an article last year on DanRad trying to move on from Harry Potter. Sam is mentioned a couple of times in the article and is in a photo there, too. (DRad has two Sams, apparently.) If you go to the Times’ site and do a search on Radcliffe and Venice, the article will come up. You’re welcome!

  • msdamselfly

    Daniel looks great

  • evave2

    Hey, Uncles, are we going to get LOTS more Daniel Radcliffe shots ala Taylor Swift and her empty purse? I could dig it.

  • Ashleigh

    HUH?? pecs what?? muscles who??

  • smh4748

    I don’t think I ever fully realized how short DR is. Wow!

    I agree with the uncles though–this is a surprisingly effective look for him.

  • frannyprof

    Huh? What? Footwear? Yeah, sure… whatever you say, TLo.

  • e jerry powell

    It seems that Pecs McHollywood answers to “Sam.” He’s only with Daniel in alternate months; dunno who the alternate bodyguard is, because it seems that only Sam ever gets photographed. I wonder why…

  • Resl

    I want to be famous so I can have my own Pecs McHollywood.

  • Sherilyne Cox

    No matter what DR wears, his adorable little ears always make me giggle.

  • Tigerfly

    I wonder if Pecs McHollywood has joined the Hot Handlers Union yet? I think we really need a Hot Handlers tour…

  • Omilord you guys make me laugh. I love you.

  • Columbinia

    No, no, I read it. Agree about the shoes.

  • Terri Terri

    I am always hypnotized by Daniel Radcliffe’s eyebrows. Maybe because I don’t have enough of my own.
