Daniel Radcliffe reveals recent drinking problem
'Harry Potter' star tells GQ magazine he got caught up in 'Hollywood lifestyle.'
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe talks about a drinking problem he had during the making of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” MTV.com reports.
Daniel Radcliffe has opened up about giving in to one of the pitfalls of fame. In the new issue of GQ magazine, the actor reveals that while shooting “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” he drank a lot on set.
“I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff,” he says of making the 2009 film. “I really got away with that because there were many instances when a paparazzi shot like that could have been taken.”
The Broadway star goes on to explain that he was caught up in the Hollywood lifestyle. “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,” he says before noting that he decided to get clean in 2010 while filming the final installments of the “Harry Potter” films, the last of which hits theaters July 15.
