Joining his Merrily We Roll Along co-stars Jonathan Groff and Lindsay Mendez, British actor Daniel Radcliffe appeared on  Variety Fair’s lie detector show and fans now have answers to some of the nastiest rumors about the actor.

Speaking of the weirdest story Radcliffe read about himself, the actor explains in detail. “Well, there’s like a lot of I’m obviously aware there’s a lot of like uh shipping of Harry and Draco as characters uh together so I’ve read some of that,” Radcliffe said.

“But in terms of like stories about me, the weird was the weirdest story I read about myself that I had the SAS walk my dogs, that I had special beer brewed myself by monks in a monastery in Belgium, that I used to get my assistant to hold my scripts in the mirror so I could read them while I was having makeup done even though that doesn’t make f*cking sense, cuz I wouldn’t be able to read mirror writing. Um, and yeah there there’s a long list.”

The 34-year-old candidly explained why these rumors never made sense but one thing is certain, Radcliffe definitely read fan fiction based on the the actor himself, no matter how weird.

The buzz of Radcliffe being cast as the iconic MCU character Wolverine following the footsteps of Hugh Jackman spread like wildfire. Did Radcliffe himself spread the rumor? “No,” Radcliffe shared in the Vanity Fair show confirming that he got buffed for no reason.

“I got buffed you know yeah because I, uh, am obsessive and, uh, I, I want to you know, you’ve seen my parents they’re like insane Fitness people so that’s just been passed on, and, and yeah, but no, no Wolverine. Flattered but no,” he added.

Even one year prior to his recent comment on the Wolverine buzz, Radcliffe clarified that he had no interest in playing the X-Men character. Still, fans were far from giving up on the idea of seeing him as the titular character as his recent training and muscle-building for a role in Miracle Workers added more to the hype for his physical ability to play the character. However, his second confirmation explicitly suggests that fans will not get to see him anytime soon in the MCU.
