‘Harry Potter’ Star Daniel Radcliffe Admits to Former Drinking Problem

Most people think of Daniel Radcliffe as one of Hollywood’s more well-behaved child turned adult stars.   However, in an interview with UK’s GQ Magazine, he’s getting real personal, revealing that he once had a problem with alcohol:

“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.”

“I really got away with that because there were many instances when a paparazzi shot like that could have been taken.”

“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.”

“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’d just rather sit at home and read, or go out to dinner with someone, or talk to someone I love, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh.”

Sounds like Daniel’s got a long and successful career ahead of him if he sticks to this healthy lifestyle.  What a guy!


Emma Watson Talks Love, Harry Potter and James Franco with Vogue

Emma Watson looks super grown up and sophisticated in this month’s Vogue issue.  Besides posing for fabulous photos, Emma talked about a wide variety of subjects; one of them being Harry Potter of course:

On her idol Patti Smith’s 2010 memoir ‘Just Kids’: “I want to live like Patti. I want to write like Patti … The book was so honest and brave. I loved the way she sees the world. I really felt that life was more beautiful after I read it, and I felt more hopeful.”

On the “bubble” that ‘Harry Potter’ created for her: “I have had no control over my life … I have lived in a complete bubble. They found me and picked me for the part. And now I’m desperately trying to find my way through it.”

On her co-star Daniel Radcliffe: “He understood what his role was … not just as an actor but as the leading man in this enormous franchise. And I think that was almost more important in a way. He held it all together. I am very grateful for him.”

On getting advice from fellow notorious multitasker James Franco: “It was such a relief to speak to someone who is trying to do the same thing I’m doing. I talked to him about juggling studying and making films and going backward and forward. He’s not afraid or limited by what he fears people will say about it.”

On love: “I’m a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation. I think what people connect with in novels is this idea of an overpowering, encompassing love — and it being more important and special than anything and everything else … I would love to not date someone in the same industry as me. Otherwise it becomes what it means to everyone else.”

On life after Hermione Granger: “Hermione is so close to who I am as a person that I’ve never really had to research a role … I’m literally rediscovering what it means to be an actress. … I’ve probably earned the right to screw up a few times … I don’t want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about.”

Emma is extremely well-spoken and seems to have a good head on her shoulders. I can’t wait to see her in other roles besides Hermione.

 


Harry Potter Cast Speaks “American”

Aw, man. Justin Bieber is the man….Boo-yah!”

This is cute.

MTV News sat down with the Harry Potter cast (Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and Tom Felton) and tested out their American accent.  They’re all pretty good.  Rupert and Tom are the most believable.  Check the vid!

Daniel Radcliffe Says No More Harry Potter For Me

Daniel Radcliffe has obtained fame and fortune from his character “Harry Potter” for quite sometime now, but shockingly he no longer wishes to play the character. We’ve literally watched in grow up through these movies and now I guess he has reached his limit. Here’s what he had to say.

“I think Jo is being very kind to a lot of people by giving them that little bit of hope and me that mild heart attack,” Radcliffe joked. “But I’ve been doing this for 10 years. A team of surgeons would be needed to reapply my jaw to my face if she did this. I would be incredibly surprised but, you know, the other thing is, people have been saying, ‘If she did [write more books], would you be in [the films]?’ And at this point in time, ‘No’ is the answer,” he admitted. “I’ve done it for 10 years and that’s a long time. But I’m also being careful to qualify that with, ‘Better men than me have changed their mind.’ “

Ten years is a long time and I understand what he means.  He wishes to branch off in his career and do other movies.

“I don’t want to say it would be a step backwards because these films have been so good to me, but over the next few years I’m going to be working very hard to establish myself as an actor outside of this series,” he said. “It would seem self-defeating if I went back to them.”

See now this is a defining moment in Mr. Radcliffe’s life. Would you leave all that money behind??? He doesn’t even have to do another movie and would be set for life but it’s because he loves what he does, its about growth. I wish him the best.

What do you guys think????
