A Dry Spell
As his professional life thrives with a turn on Broadway in the Tony-nominated How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Radcliffe privately grapples with alcoholism. "As much as I would love to be a person that goes to parties and has a couple of drinks and has a nice time, that doesn't work for me," he confesses to GQ. "I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff."
A Very 'Potter' Finale
After captivating the world for a decade, Radcliffe comes full circle with the franchise's final installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. "I wept like a child the day we finished filming," says the 21-year-old star. "But at the same time, we always knew it was going to end." The film nabs the best opening weekend ever, collecting $168.6 million at the worldwide box office.
After dating for a year, Radcliffe, 22, steps out in New York with girlfriend Rosanne Coker, also 22, whom he met in 2007 while she was a production assistant on Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince. "I've got a girlfriend at the moment, who I am very much in love with," Radcliffe said in July. "So you know, we'll see where that goes." The couple calls it quits in 2012.
Oh, the Horror!
For his first project post-Harry Potter, Radcliffe stars in horror film The Woman in Black, about a young lawyer who investigates the disturbing deaths of children in a distant village. Despite his star status, the film bombs at the box office, earning only $54 million domestically.
