'Harry Potter' Star Admits Drinking Problem

Tuesday, 05 Jul 2011 03:34 PM

Daniel Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter franchise, recently revealed that he has struggled the past few years with a drinking problem in an interview with British GQ, reports FitPerez.

Acknowledging his issues with alcohol, Radcliffe has quit drinking entirely and has been sober for one full year.

“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. There’s no shame in enjoying a quiet life. And that’s been the realization of the past few years for me,” Radcliffe explained.

“[I want] a career for myself after Potter . . . [If] it goes well, and is varied and with longevity, then that puts to bed the ‘child actors’ argument.”

Radcliffe, now 21, was just nine years old when he was chosen to star in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. The final film in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, hits theaters July 15.
