Daniel Radcliffe will be featured in the August issue of GQ magazine, as well as next week's issue of USA Weekend, where he will discuss his life, and work on the Harry Potter film set as the series comes to an end. A couple of previews of Dan's photo shoot with USA Weekend can be seen here.

Amongst other things, Dan opened up to GQ about the touchy topic of his alcohol abuse as a teenager, which he has now overcome as he felt it overtook his life during the final Harry Potter films. Quotes from Dan on that and a preview photo from the August issue are below.

"I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff," Radcliffe said, adding that he had also become "complacent" about his job. "There were a few years there when I was just so enamoured with the idea of living some sort of famous person's lifestyle that really isn't suited to me."

Radcliffe developed a penchant for whisky and partying, and says he was fortunate that the paparazzi failed to capture his drink-fuelled excess. "I really got away with that because there were many instances when a shot like that could have been taken," he said.

Realising he had to change his ways, Radcliffe quit drinking and has not touched a drop of alcohol since August last year.

"I'm actually enjoying the fact I can have a relationship with my girlfriend where I'm really pleasant and I'm not ----ing up totally all the time," he said of his new lifestyle.

He told GQ magazine: "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. I do that very unsuccessfully. I'd just rather sit at home and read, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh. There's no shame in enjoying the quiet life. And that's been the realisation of the past few years for me."
