Getting drunk before heading off to work isn't just for Pat Sajak. Daniel Radcliffe told a British tabloid that while he was regularly getting hammered during his days filming "Harry Potter."

"I don’t want to go into details but I drank a lot and it was daily - I mean nightly. I can honestly say I never drank at work on Harry Potter. I went into work still drunk, but I never drank at work," Radcliffe told Heat Magazine.

He says that when he watches the movie now, he can tell when he was drunk: "I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes."

At the ripe old age of 22, Radcliffe says he's laying off the butterbeer for good.
