Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe says that during the filming of the sixth Harry Potter film, he became heavily reliant on alcohol, and was also infatuated with living like a celebrity, which he now realizes doesn’t suit him:

“I became so reliant on alcohol to enjoy stuff. There were a few years there when I was just so enamoured with the idea of living some sort of famous person’s lifestyle that really isn’t suited to me.”

Daniel, who gave up drinking last year, says he now likes to spend time with his girlfriend, Olive Uniacke instead. He admits to preferring a ‘quiet life’:

“I’m actually enjoying the fact I can have a relationship with my girlfriend where I’m really pleasant and I’m not f***ing up totally all the time. 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. I do that very unsuccessfully. I’d just rather sit at home and read, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh. There’s no shame in enjoying the quiet life. And that’s been the realisation of the past few years for me.”
