Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he’s found a new way of having fun since giving up drinking - and it’s a tad more healthy than throwing booze down his neck.
The ‘Harry Potter’ star, who hasn’t touched a drop of alcohol for three years, gave up drinking because, as he puts it, ‘the person he became when he was drunk’.
These days you’ll find the 26-year-old working out in the gym instead of downing beers at his local.
He told the Telegraph: “Like the cliché of anybody who is quitting something, I really got into exercise.
He went on to explain that, ultimately, alcohol didn’t agree with him.
“I can’t tell you what kind of drunk I am because I don’t remember what kind of drunk I am,” he says. “I think I’m probably great – while I’m conscious. But then I have to be looked after and ultimately I don’t want to wake up to 20 text messages along the lines of, ‘Where are you? Dude, are you OK?’”
The actor recently revealed that he’s in no rush to see JK Rowling’s new play.
Daniel starred as the title character in all eight of the wizard films, and Jamie Parker took over the role in ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’, which made its debut earlier this month.
However, while tickets for the play sold out in a predictably short amount of time, Daniel has admitted he’s not lucky enough to have bagged one… though he doesn’t exactly seem put out about it.
He told US talk show host Stephen Colbert: “I want to see the show. I am genuinely intrigued and I’ve heard it’s fantastic.
“But I just feel sitting in an audience of what will for the most of the near future be very enthusiastic Harry Potter fans might be like not a relaxing way to see a show… so not for the time being.”
