Daniel Radcliffe Admits He Was "Drunk" While Filming Scenes For Harry Potter

Feb 3, 2012 03:30 PM

230dradcliffe111510_01_X17.jpgNow that the films have wrapped indefinitely, all of the juicy behind the scenes secrets from the Harry Potter set are starting to come out!

He's made claims in the past that he's battled alcohol addiction, but now Daniel Radcliffe tells UK's Heat mag that he often showed up to the set a bit inebriated.

The star confessed,

    "I went into work still drunk. I can point to many scenes where I'm just gone. Dead behind the eyes. 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 drank a lot and it was nightly."


Lucky for Radcliffe, the higher-ups working on Harry Potter didn't seem to catch on at the time, and the actor confessed that he no longer drinks.

"You either have to change something," he tells Heat, "or give into that shame."

Daniel Radcliffe Feels Bad For Rob Pattinson

Aug 22, 2011 10:25 AM


Daniel Radcliffe is very proud of Harry Potter. And can you blame him?

The final film in the franchise Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was well received by critics and fans and raked in over $1 billion internationally.

One of the best parts about HP was that Daniel, 22, started out doing the films when he was just 11, so he was fairly sheltered from the crazier parts of fame. It was a very different experience than his former Harry Potter co-star, Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson had - which Daniel doesn't take for granted.

Noting that his fellow Englishman is "a very, very nice guy," Dan told Access Hollywood:

    “I think he’s had to do with kind of a lot more. I had a very gradual easing in to the idea of fame, because I was doing the first two films back to back almost. So, while the whole Potter film franchise was exploding, I was in studios filming and kind of unaware that this thing was going massive outside. Where as Rob, [he] was suddenly the most famous guy in the world. I think that’s a lot harder to deal with.”

We kind of love that Daniel was a child star who came out on top - he sounds so realistic about Hollywood!

Harry Potter Casts A Record Spell On The Box Office

Jul 15, 2011 11:32 AM

Warner Bros.

The boy wizard has officially cast his spell on moviegoers - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 just scored the biggest midnight opening ever, earning $43.5 million.

The late-night opening stole the number one spot from another cult fave, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which earned $30 million during its midnight opening.

The franchise has always been known for breaking records, and it certainly kept up that trend with its final flick. The weekend has barely begun, but Deathly Hallows Part 2 has already generated over $100 million worldwide.

As if that weren't enough, every 3D midnight show was sold out and IMAX theaters broke records, earning more than $2 million in sales.

Talk about "mischief managed."

Now it's time to take bets on how many people called in sick Friday morning (as if Carmaggedon wasn't a good enough excuse for Los Angeles HP fans!).

Daniel Radcliffe: "I Became So Reliant On Alcohol"

Jul 4, 2011 10:30 AM

RadcliffeNotDrinking230.jpgDaniel Radcliffe, 22, has given up drinking.

The actor, who says he has not drank alcohol since August 2010, tells GQ in a new interview:

    "I became so reliant on alcohol to enjoy stuff. 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, he says his new lifestyle has helped his relationship with his girlfriend (who he does not identify). "I’m actually enjoying the fact I can have a relationship with my girlfriend where I’m really pleasant and I’m not f*****g up totally all the time," Radcliffe says.

The Harry Potter star says he had a problem with moderation.

    "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."

Radcliffe, who is currently starring on Broadway in the well-reviewed revival of How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, has amassed a fortune of almost $77 million.

But Radcliffe's not going to use it on alcohol, or other vices, apparently. " ... the main thing about having money is it means you don't have to worry about it," he says. "And that for me is a lovely thing. It's not for fast cars and hookers."
