‘What If’ Actor Daniel Radcliffe Slams His Own Acting As Harry Potter (2014)

Daniel Radcliffe became a household name after appearing in the "Harry Potter" movies, but the hunky British actor confessed he is embarrassed by some of those performances! Find out what he had to say about his acting in an interview with The Daily Mail!

"And that's why it's hard to watch a film like "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," because I'm just not very good in it. I hate it," the actor stated. "My acting is very one-note and I can see I got complacent and what I was trying to do just didn't come across. My best film is the fifth one (Order Of The Phoenix) because I can see a progression."

Radcliffe, who currently stars in "What If" and will appear in October's "Horns," explained he "can see a progression" in the fifth installment "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix."

"But then the moments I'm not as proud of, mistakes other actors get to make in rehearsal rooms or at drama school, are all on film for everyone to see," the star continued.

He also felt pressure to become a "real actor" after his Potter roles, which he coped with through casual sex and drinking.

"I don't think I was consciously trying to rebel or sabotage everything," he told the publication, though admitted to being "a really annoying, loud, inappropriate, messy drunk."

"It felt more like there isn't any blueprint for how to get through this. And the reason I spoke out about it was because I felt someone else would and I should take control...which is exactly what I did."

The "Harry Potter" star spoke openly about his struggle with alcohol in the past.

"I can honestly say I never drank at work on Harry Potter," he said to Heat Magazine. "I went into work still drunk, but I never drank at work. I can point to many scenes where I'm just gone. Dead behind the eyes."
