Daniel Radcliffe complains about prosthetic genitals

DANIEL Radcliffe found the prosthetic penis he was given in 'Swiss Army Man' "too smooth".

The 26-year-old actor - who plays a flatulent corpse in the low-budget movie - admitted he tried a number of fake members when trying to fake an erection in the film and one particular piece was given back because it was just like the "end of a broom".

He said: "That day [of the erection shot] actually came quite far into the shoot, and we'd sort of been building up to it for a while...

"One of the pieces that I had on was just a wooden -- wow, I can't believe I'm telling you this -- it was like the end of a broom. It was all just like one line, and too smooth. So that was the one note that I gave, and they took it and ran with it.

"Is this too much information?"

Despite Daniel's corpse character being put through a number of bizarre scenarios in the movie, he is very proud of his performance and how convincingly dead he managed to look.

He said in an interview with Vulture: "Every day I got to set and we'd be thinking, 'How the hell are we gonna do this? It's impossible!' And every day, we got it done

"I would like to take this opportunity to say that it's mostly me. And I'm proud to say it!

"I watched the first six minutes of the film and I'm so proud of how dead I f***ing look!"
