Harry Potter movie makers have been forced to turn to special effects because the film's adolescent stars are suffering from acne.

The magical movie's lead stars, Daniel Radcliffe, 15, (HARRY POTTER), 17-year-old Rupert Grint, (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson, 15, (HERMIONE GRANGER), are particularly suffering the painful skin condition - prompting panicking producers of HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE to employ technicians to enhance the teenagers' skins on screen.

An insider says, "We have had to employ a special effects man to go through every frame clearing up their complexions."
