Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe Admitted of alcohol addiction

Those Harry Potter kids sure are grown up now, and star Daniel Radcliffe is grown up enough to know that he has a problem.

In an interview with British GQ, the 21-year old actor reveals that alcohol became his enemy.

“I became so reliant on (alcohol) to enjoy stuff,” he admits. “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 also says he was lucky that the paparazzi didn’t catch him partying up, not that there weren’t plenty of opportunities. “I really got away with that because there were many instances when a shot like that could have been taken.”

Now, he says he knows how to control himself — namely by avoiding 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. I do that very unsuccessfully. I’d just rather sit at home and read, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh. There’s no shame in enjoying the quiet life. And that’s been the realization of the past few years for me.”
