She continued to have starring roles in movies and began using drugs at the age of 12, becoming a notorious celebrity drug addict in her teens.

Daniel Radcliffe In 2011, the Harry Potter franchise was coming to an end, and Daniel Radcliffe wrestled with the knowledge that a major part of his life was ending.

He also knew he would miss seeing the people that he had been around for most of his life, the cast and crew. He turned to alcohol initially to deal with the chaos surrounding the Harry Potter fandom and then leaned on drinking to handle the emotional loss of the role.
Luckily this celebrity alcoholic was able to realize that he didn't like how he felt physically anymore and put himself on a path to sobriety with the help of an [url=https://www.inspiremalibu.com/alcohol-rehab/]alcohol rehab[/url] center.
