Daniel Radcliffe: Alcohol didn’t make me happy


Being a child star can be a great burden and Daniel Radcliffe knows that better than anyone.

The actor became famous at a very young age and, wanting to find some sort of escape, he started using alcohol to help him deal with the celebrity status. However, he soon realized it wasn’t the right solution.

He told Sky Arts: ”I would have benefited from not drinking as it was not making me as happy as I wanted it to.

”It is not a real pressure but it is a pressure of living with the thought, ‘Oh, what if all these people are saying I am not going to have a career? What if they are all going to be right and will be laughing and I will be consigned to a bunch of ‘Where are they now?’ lists?”

”People don’t shout Harry Potter at me now, they tend to know my name, which is lovely … but I always will credit the opportunities I get to Harry Potter. I would not be a happy person if I was bitter about those ten years of my life,” he added.
