Daniel Radcliffe, the popular actor who plays Harry Potter, recently admitted that he had been drinking too much. He said that he picked up the habit while he was involved in the filming of Harry Potter 6. However, after he realized that he was developing an addiction, he decided to give it up altogether. Radcliffe successfully did this beginning in August 2010.
He said that he first took up drinking because, “[he] was just so enamoured with the idea of living some sort of famous person’s lifestyle that really isn’t suited to [him].”
