Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has made a stunning revelation about his previously secret battle with the bottle.
"I became so reliant on alcohol to enjoy stuff," he said. "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," he said.
Radcliffe - whose drink of choice was whiskey - says being sober has improved his relationship with his mystery girlfriend too.
"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," he told the August edition of the magazine.
