Daniel Radcliffe Says Sex Is Better Sober

Since quitting drinking four years ago, the Harry Potter actor is apparently reaping the benefits.

3 Substance

It might give you the creeps to think of little Harry Potter doing… that which shall not be named. But the actor who plays him, Daniel Radcliffe, is not a boy wizard. He’s an actor, and a grown up one at that—he just turned 25 yesterday! He’s also four years sober. And apparently it hasn’t put a damper on his sex life—in fact, quite the opposite. ”For some people sex might be better drunk. But for me and the person I’m doing it with it’s much better sober,” Radcliffe tells Elle.

Before getting sober in 2010, Radcliffe described himself as a “nightly” drinker who would often show up to film Harry Potter scenes still drunk from the night before. ”I went into work still drunk,” he said in 2012. “I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes,” he said in 2012, “I have a very addictive personality. It was a problem.”
