We basically watched him grow up in front of our eyes — but, I’m sure nobody thought young Harry Potter was old enough to drink! Big time international star, Daniel Radcliffe, comes out to UK’s GQ Magazine and talks about his struggle with alcohol.
Daniel Radcliffe admits that he’s allowed himself to become ‘reliant’ upon alcohol in order to enjoy himself in the past.
Unlike other celebrities, Daniel was fortunate enough to live his life comfortably while being off the set. And when I say comfortably, I mean — without paparazzi’s following him everywhere he went. Because of this, he said it made drinking easier for him.
But, before things got out of control, the responsible star took orders into his own hands and took a step back — now, going on a year of sobriety and says he can enjoy doing things without the alcohol.
“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,” he tells the magazine. ”I’m actually enjoying the fact I can have a relationship with my girlfriend where I’m really pleasant and I’m not f–king up totally all the time. There’s no shame in enjoying the quiet life. And that’s been the realization of the past few years for me.”
Can you imagine a little drunk Harry Potter running around on the set??
