Radcliffe admits being drunk during "Harry Potter" scenes

Recommended Posts

(Reuters) - Daniel Radcliffe admitted he was drunk while filming some scenes for the "Harry Potter" movies during a period in his life where he was drinking "nightly," the young star said in an interview.

 

"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," Radcliffe said to British celebrity news magazine Heat earlier this week.

 

"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," the 22-year-old actor said.

 

The young British star, who was propelled to fame at 11-years-old after being cast to play boy wizard Harry Potter in the movies based on J.K. Rowling's best-selling novels, discussed his "very busy personality" and also talked about his production-assistant girlfriend, who he said was "a wonderful, wonderful girl, who's far too good for me."

 

"I can also be quite insecure. A lot of actors have self-doubt. I live under that the whole time, and it's how I function best. I think she puts up with a lot; she says she doesn't," said Radcliffe.

 

The "Harry Potter" star, who has received critical praise for his theater work in the Broadway and West End productions "Equus" and "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," is currently on the promotional rounds for his film, "The Woman in Black," out in U.S. theaters on Friday.

I always knew he was acting weird in HP and the Sorcerer's Stone. :(

Not surprising, still think he's improved quite a bit from the first to the last movie.

haha, win.

 

and now you've pointed it out zapy, he does seem pissed.

 

Took me a minute before I realized pissed was a term for drunk in the UK.

Pretty sure he is drunk here

he is supposed to act kind of like he is drunk, but he could have been drunk anyways. that is a scene after he took the liquid luck and it probably alters your personality to make you more spontaneous as liquid luck is supposed to let someone achieve their goals in whatever way possible. I'm sure he was told to act kind of wired by the producers/director, but again he might have been drunk

Wasn't he underaged for the first few, even if it was filmed in the UK?

This is only the beginning. Eventually, Professor McGonagall's cocaine addiction will come out.
