Harry Potter Was a Boozehound

Actor Daniel Radcliffe opens up about his struggles with alcohol.

Radcliffe said his life went off the rails for a period when he turned 18 and was filming Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince.

“I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff,” Radcliffe said, adding that he had also become “complacent” about his job. “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.”

Apparently, it was so bad, the actor has stopped drinking altogether. Wonder what else is going to come out about the franchise and actors related to behind-the-scenes drama once the final movie drops. [via vulture]
