Harry Potter Star Used to Be Alcohol-dependent


“Harry Potter” himself revealed that he was becoming so addicted to alcohol to enjoy his adulthood following his 18th birthday that he had to make the conscious effort to turn things around.

Daniel Radcliffe admitted that his taste for alcohol was becoming an addiction, thanks to all the parties.

Radcliffe told GQ magazine, “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 person’s lifestyle that really isn’t suited to me.”

He adds that he was fortunate to escape paparazzi, who could have captured him in his drunken state, “I really got away with that because there were many instances when a shot like that could have been taken.”

Since August last year, Radcliffe has not had even a drop of alcohol and enjoys instead spending time at home with his girlfriend or doing some reading.

Daniel said, “I’m actually enjoying the fact I can have a relationship with my girlfriend where I’m really pleasant… 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 do that very unsuccessfully. I’d just rather sit at home and read, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh.”

Good for you Harry… err Daniel! We don’t need another Paris Hilton, or even a male version of her.
