Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has had many bizarre fan encounters but says being chased till his washroom in Italy was the craziest.
The 24-year-old actor said the incident recently reminded him of a scene from comedy film Monty Python's Life of Brian, reported Daily Express.
"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," Radcliffe said during a show.
"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," he added.
