WITH "HORRIBLE BOSSES" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" due out in theaters, the publicity cavalcade has begun: "HB" star Jennifer Aniston is in a happy new relationship and "HP" star Daniel Radcliffe (below) . . . has given up drinking. Radcliffe has told GQ he began to drink too much while filming "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" in 2009. "I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff," he said. "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.

But 21-year-old actor Daniel Radcliffe said he's done with alcohol, realizing he has been partying too hard since filming the sixth movie (for those living under a rock, the seventh premieres next week) in the Harry Potter series. "I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff," he said in a GQ magazine interview released Monday. "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 became famous at age 11 after he was cast for the movie adaptations of J.K. Rowling 's popular books.
