Daniel, You're a Star in the Face of the Sky...

By Gibbs22manila @gibbscadiz
Daniel, you're a star in the face of the sky... On top of being on the Hollywood A-list, he does serious theater, sings and dances in musicals (or at least in one--so far), has successfully evaded becoming tabloid fodder despite all that fame and money, and appears to have a good, well-adjusted head on his shoulders. Further proof: this revelation. What's not to love?
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he was so worried about his drinking that he vowed to give it up and has become teetotal.
The 21-year-old actor told GQ magazine that his life went off the rails for a time when he turned 18 and was filming "Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince."
“I became so reliant on (alcohol) to enjoy stuff,” he said in an interview to be published in GQ's August edition. “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...”
Radcliffe, who says he has not touched a drop of alcohol since August last year, admitted that he would love to be a person that goes to parties and has a couple of drinks but that just doesn't work for him.
“I do that very unsuccessfully. I'd just rather sit at home and read, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh,” he added. “There's no shame in enjoying the quiet life.”
