17-year-old actor Daniel Radcliffe has been stirring a media frenzy by participating in a nude photo shoot to promote his role in the London revival play "Equus". Radcliffe is most known for his breakout role as the main character of the Harry Potter series of films.

The Tony award-winning play tells the story of a stable-hand who has an erotic obsession with horses and a psychiatrist who deals with treating him. In the photos, Radcliffe poses nude with horses -- tastefully, mind you. In the second set of the shoot, he poses naked with actress Joanna Christie (who is also nude), his fictional girlfriend.

Radcliffe has commented on the frenzy with Newsweek magazine, stating "Part of me wants to shake up people's perception of me, just shove me in a blender."
