British actor Daniel Radcliffe was left stunned during a recent trip to Italy when he discovered thousands of fans waiting for him as he used the bathroom. The Harry Potter star attended the Venice Film Festival in September (13) to promote his movie Kill Your Darlings, and he has previously told how he was mobbed by teens at the event. Now he has lifted the lid on the madness that awaited him and likened one moment to a scene from Monty Python comedy Life of Brian. Radcliffe tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "Italy was crazy. We never did any press there for the (Harry Potter) films so there was 10 years (of) pent up energy and when I got there it just exploded. "It was incredible. At one point I needed the loo (toilet) and had to make a 100-yard dash and was immediately followed by a flash mob. I had a Life of Brian moment when I opened the toilet door and there were thousands of people standing outside waiting. It was all very surreal and mad as always."
