Daniel Radcliffe Reveals Alcohol Battle

Harry Potter's star, Daniel Radcliffe reveals a secret booze addiction in a GQ interview

The famous Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe says drinking has become issue for him while filming the last few outings in the Harry Potter franchise.

“I became so reliant on alcohol to enjoy stuff. There were a few years there when I was just so enamoured with the idea of living some sort of famous persons lifestyle that really isn’t suited to me.” Radcliffe told GQ Magazine

Daniel Radcliffe, 21, points out that alcohol was really an issue for him on the 2009 set when he was drinking heavily to have a good time. After realizing that the celebrity-being-drunk-most-of-the-time lifestyle was not meant for him, Radcliffe starts a healthy and dry lifestyle. As he told GQ Magazine has not touched alcohol since August 2010, shortly after completing work on the final Potter production.

There’s no shame in enjoying the quiet life. And that’s been the realization of the past few years for me.”

So you must wonder where were the paparazzi shots that always seem to accompany our fallen teen idols? Radcliffe says he was only lucky enough not to be caught drunk on some paparazzi’s camera.

“I really got away with that because there were many instances when a paparazzi shot like that could have been taken,” Daniel Radcliffe says.

And don’t bother to wait photos of Daniel Radcliffe falling of the wagon, cause as he says his new lifestyle is here to stay:

“As much as I would love to be a person that goes to parties and has a couple of drinks and has a nice time, that doesn’t work for me. I’d just rather sit at home and read, or go out to dinner with someone, or talk to someone I love, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh.”
