The Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe admitted to GQ UK in an interview that he suffered addiction to alcohol that started when they began filming Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.
There seems to be a pattern for young stars who were thrust into fame at such a very young age. Coping with being famous must really be overwhelming that one has to find a way to feel normal.
“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,” he tells GQ.
He has since become sober last year and realized early enough that if he continues with the addiction, his life could lead to a downward spiral.
“I’m actually enjoying the fact I can have a relationship with my girlfriend where I’m really pleasant and I’m not f–king up totally all the time. There’s no shame in enjoying the quiet life. And that’s been the realization of the past few years for me.”
Good for you Daniel!! Smart guy!
