Bad Harry! No one wants to believe it, but Daniel Radcliffe is not perfect — and it just breaks our naive little hearts.
Radcliffe admitted to being drunk while filming several scenes in the Harry Potter movies.
“I have a very addictive personality. It was a problem. People with problems like that are very adept at hiding it. It was bad. I don’t want to go into details, but I drank a lot and it was daily — I mean nightly,” the actor admitted to British celebrity news magazine Heat.
“I can honestly say I never drank at work on Harry Potter. I went into work still drunk, but I never drank at work. I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes.”
Most of us may be a little shocked by the news — considering that the Harry Potter cast is known for members’ angelic behaviour and relatively composed image — but the news make sense.
Radcliffe was not just propelled but rocketed to stardom at a tender age of 11. And while most kids are struggling to get off a tire swing or sneak cookies out of the jar before supper, he was busy attending movie premieres.
Picking up a drinking problem couldn’t have been hard when alcohol is readily available to you and the stress is piling up faster than spam e-mails.
Luckily, Radcliffe is now in a loving relationship with a production assistant and is currently promoting his new movie, The Woman in Black.
Way to go, Potter!
