British actor Daniel Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter films, has denied a tabloid report that he smoked marijuana at a party.

"We categorically deny the allegations regarding Daniel Radcliffe published in today's Daily Mirror," the 20-year-old star's spokeswoman said Friday, according to Reuters.

British paper the Daily Mirror had a story calling Radcliffe "Harry Pothead", and went on to describe a scene at a London party, "The party-loving Harry Potter idol, a spliff between his fingers, could barely stop chuckling as the girl daubed his face at the house bash."

"Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this," said the star's spokeswoman, "We are considering our position and will be taking all necessary action in relation to such allegations."

In 2001, Radcliffe became a global sensation at the age of 12 when he kicked off his career playing the boy wizard Harry Potter in the movie adaptations of J.K. Rowling's extremely popular novels.
