While “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe has claimed he no longer drinks, his co-star Emma Watson says she’s only been “very, very drunk” once in her life.
The 22-year-old British actress, who appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Monday in New York City, said she got drunk in England after she turned 18.
“Yes I have tried spirits, we drink at 18 in the U.K. but I’m actually legal to drink here now, it’s worth mentioning. I’m 21,” she said. “Yes, yes I have. I got very, very drunk once in my life as everyone does. Fine, I got drunk, I have been drunk – and I’ll bow to that!”
When Letterman asked if she had ever peed on the subway, Watson replied that it has never gotten to that point.
“Thankfully it’s never been that bad,” she said.
But when the late show host asked if she knew about Radcliffe’s drinking on the set of the “Harry Potter” films, Watson replied: “To be honest, it’s rarely not something that I genially know much about. He ‘s the one to talk about it. But as far as I know, he never took a sick day. He was like the most professional, amazing guy.”
Earlier this month, Radcliffe revealed to GQ magazine that his drinking became an issue on the set of 2009’s “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.” Lucky for him, he said the paparazzi were not around.
“I really got away with that because there were many instances when a paparazzi shot like that could have been taken,” he said. “I became so reliant on alcohol to enjoy stuff.”
The actor, who stars in Broadway’s “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” said drinking was an attempt to cope with his early success.
“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 said he’s been sober for almost a year and prefers to be home than attending movie premieres and parties.
“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 said. “I’d just rather sit at home and read, or go out to dinner with someone, or talk to someone I love, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh.”
Radcliffe and Watson star in the final installment of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” which opens in theatres on July 15.
The pop star was asked to choose between the popular vampire saga and the equally popular Harry Potter series, but struggled to make up his mind.
Justin, whose movie Never Say Never won Best Jaw-dropping Moment at the MTV Movie Awards last night, had to think hard before choosing Twilight.
‘ can’t say!’ he told MTV, ‘But if I had to choose. Twilight over Harry Potter.’
The teen heartthrob also revealed that it felt amazing to share the moment that bagged him the award in his 3D movie.
Never Say Never follows the pop star’s journey to the top and shows some breath-taking scenes of the 17-year-old performing.
‘t felt great,’ he said. ‘Obviously that was my first performance at Madison Square Gardens [in New York] and just to have that experience. it was great.’
When “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” draws to a close, don’t expect the proceedings to end with the battle against He Who Must Not Be Named.
There’s much more to play with in the “Potter” universe beyond the Voldemort conflict. We’re talking, of course, about the epilogue, a sequence where — SPOILER ALERT! — we’re invited to see what happened to the survivors of the war against the Dark Lord in the years that followed the Battle of Hogwarts.
The epilogue is easily one of the most highly anticipated scenes in all of “Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” so when we spoke with “Potter” producers David Barron and David Heyman at CinemaCon in Las Vegas this week, we made sure to ask them about it. After the jump, find out three interesting facts we learned about how the “Harry Potter” saga will come to a close!
The Epilogue Brings Everything Full Circle
“[The epilogue is] about the cycles of life,” Heyman told MTV News. “It’s about Harry, Ron and Hermione taking their children to King’s Cross station to the very place where the story began, to begin the journey that they began many years ago. It’s really beautiful and really tender.”
We’ll See How The Magical Nation Survives A War
“We’re expressing it through our three principle characters, who obviously have had a terrible time in many respects,” said Barron. “Because they have been fighting Voldemort for longer than we can remember, and came close to death, you’ll see the state of the school at the end. It was not an easy battle. As countries, as nations do, as cultures do, they recover and they renew and life carries on. It is about renewal.”
It’s A Short But Sweet Ending
“It’s not long. It’s about two … a couple of minutes,” Barron said of the epilogue’s length. “It’s long enough to tell its story. We like it. We think it works well, and it does leave you feeling a bit [emotional].”
