Good for him!'Harry Potter's' Daniel Radcliffe admits past drinking problem
July 4, 2011 | 1:19 pm
Daniel Radcliffe just turned 21, and he's already given up drinking. It turns out the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 " star partied a little too hard over the years and decided to call it quits a while back.
Radcliffe admitted to boozing it up while filming the 2009 blockbuster "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" (for non-Potterites, that would be the sixth flick in the franchise).
"I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff," he told GQ magazine. "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."
And no, it wasn't butter beer he was guzzling: Radcliffe said he was a whiskey guy before going dry in August 2010. However, he couldn’t be happier with his sober new life.
