We'd like to buy a trend.

Less than a week after Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak admitted to being drunk at work, news of another celebrity who has revealed that he, too, was under the influence in front of the camera, is making the rounds.

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe tells the British celebrity magazine Heat that he went to work on the set while drunk.

But unlike Sajak's lighthearted account of margaritas with Vanna White on filming breaks, Radcliffe, 22, shares a darker experience.





"I went into work still drunk," he tells the magazine. "I can point to many scenes where I'm just gone. Dead behind the eyes. I have a very addictive personality. It was a problem."

Stressing that he didn't drink at work, Radcliffe adds that, "People with problems like that are very adept at hiding it. It was bad. I drank a lot and it was … nightly."

The actor has said that he no longer drinks. "You either have to change something," he tells Heat, "or give into that shame."
