Daniel Radcliffe is best known for playing boy wizard Harry Potter, but there's something else he's getting a reputation for – taking off his clothes.
The actor, who shocked fans when he appeared naked on Broadway in Equus in 2008, has stripped down in three movies this year – and shared a bathtub with Jon Hamm on TV – but he told Ellen DeGeneres on Friday that his nude streak was "not intentional."
"I'm comfortable with it, but I do like to point out, I don't request it," he jokes.

To host or not to host, that is the question.
Ellen DeGeneres admits she had difficulty deciding whether to host the Academy Awards for a second time. Although her performance in 2007 received positive reviews and even earned her a Primetime Emmy nomination, the TV star just wasn't sure if she wanted to do a repeat performance.
So like many people faced with a big decision, she made a pros-and-cons list.
In an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Wednesday, she shares it with her studio audience (after pulling it out of her sock), saying, "I thought I would take you on a journey inside my mind, which is scary. Hold on."

Leah Remini appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday and revealed she's been having a difficult time since leaving the Church of Scientology in July.
"I hear it's different than leaving another religion, are you okay?" DeGeneres asked her.
Taking a big sip from her coffee cup, Remini, 43, paused before replying, "I'm okay. It's hard. We've lost friends that can no longer talk to us who are still in the organization."

The key to throwing summer's hottest dance party? Just invite Katie Holmes.
The Mania Days actress was in attendance at Saturday's Apollo in the Hamptons: A Night of Legends event, held at Apollo Theater board member Ron Perelman's East Hampton estate. The line-up of stars out to support the iconic theater included the Roots and Lenny Kravitz, with surprise performances by Darlene Love, Jon Bon Jovi, Ciara, and Pharrell.
Seated at a long table in center of Perelman's party barn alongside prosecutor pal Leigh Bishop, Jamie Foxx, Ellen DeGeneres and Penny Marshall, Holmes, 34, started getting into the groove slowly, swaying to Darlene Love's powerful rendition of "Lean on Me."

Ellen DeGeneres is so happy she could dance.
"It's a supremely wonderful day for equality," the talk show host Tweeted on Wednesday. "Prop 8 is over, and so is DOMA. Congratulations everyone. And I mean everyone."
The Supreme Court earlier handed a major victory for gay rights in two decisions. It cleared the way for the resumption of same-sex marriage in California by letting stand earlier court declarations that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional, and struck down the Defense of Marriage Act provision denying federal benefits to married gay couples.
