Daniel Radcliffe Admits to Alcohol Problem

by at . Comments

In Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe uses various spells to thwart Voldemort and the Death Eaters.

While filming this franchise, though, the young actor recently admitted he relied on a different kind of foreign entity: alcohol.

"I became so reliant on alcohol to enjoy stuff," Radcliffe says in the latest issue of GQ UK. "There were a few years there when I was just so enamored with the idea of living some sort of famous person's lifestyle that really isn't suited to me."

Reaching for His Wand

Radcliffe adds that he's lucky the paparazzi never caught him in a compromising, wasted position - and that he's enjoying his new, sober life.

"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'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."

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 - previewed HERE - hits theaters on July 15.


Hey genius,
Re: "It only bothers those with their own sexual issues." Speak for yourself. Every closet case is offensive because they perpetuate the bigotry of "gay is something to be ashamed of". THAT is what bothers me. So before you presume to know what's behind someone's comment, stop and remind yourself that you are not a rocket scientist. Best you keep your incorrect and ignorant "analysis" to yourself.


How old is this guy?? Alcohol or the abuse of can be such a killer! Sad guy Tmac who says honkeys these days?? Hahaha


I don't care if the guy sucks dick...bros aren't into the whole Potter trip anyway. But seriously, flamers alwaya have issues. Next we will read that he offed himself...or got himself off? Loser. Honkeys are so lame anyway.


If things don't work out, Dr. Drew can help. Celebrity Rehab could really use some new stoners and drunks! I feel terrible about typing that; I love you, Harry!


Good luck w/the sobriety. Whatever works for you!
Tmac:: Leave the thinking to those with some intelligence.
And who the hell cares if he's gay or straight. It only bothers those with their own sexual issues.


He IS gay. Reliable sources (at the Tonys) said that he and Neil Patrick Harris cozily left the Tonys after party together.


WOW! I thought he was a fag, not a drunk,
