Daniel 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 personâ€™s lifestyle that really isnâ€™t suited to me."
And, he says his new lifestyle has helped his relationship with his girlfriend (who he does not identify). "Iâ€™m actually enjoying the fact I can have a relationship with my girlfriend where Iâ€™m really pleasant and Iâ€™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 doesnâ€™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."
