Daniel Radcliffe stars as Harry Pothead…so what if he likes to smoke weed?
November 13, 2009
Don’t you have to be high to read the book if you are an adult? I don’t know, but that is one franchise that I have never really gotten behind. It just isn’t for me and that is fine. J.K. Rawling is a genius and all good graces that fall her way are well earned.
The Daily Mail is all up in his business…
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe today ‘categorically’ denied he had smoked a cannabis joint at a party after pictures emerged of him allegedly using the drug.
The 20-year-old actor was pictured on the front page of a tabloid newspaper allegedly smoking a cannabis joint at a party in North London.
But the film star said he had not smoked anything other than tobacco.
A spokeswoman for Radcliffe said: ‘Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this.’
‘We are considering our position and will be taking all necessary action in relation to such allegations.’
That is a decent defense for now. The problem is that others might come out of the woodwork to say that they smoked with him, or other potentially plausible, or true stories.
The accusation came as shock to fans and could well have land him in trouble with bosses in charge of the family friendly Harry Potter franchise.
The pictures were taken by Wadia Tazi, a fellow guest at the party, held at a high-rise in Camden.
Memo to self, “Never invite this attention seeking whore to any parties!” Other people should feel free to do the same. Ultimately, this is like the Michael Phelps story, which is to classify this as a non-story. Famous person got hight at a party, is like saying that water is wet.
‘At one point, a girl dragged him away, saying: ‘”come on Daniel, follow me. You don’t trust me, do you?” She pulled him into the toilet and started drawing a huge comedy beard on his face,’ Tazi is reported to have told the newspaper.
The scandal comes just four months after Radcliffe’s co-star Jamie Waylett admitted that he cultivated ten cannabis plants.
The 19-year-old, who plays Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe, escaped a spell behind bars and was instead ordered to do 120 hours of unpaid work.
Radcliffe’s role as the schoolboy wizard made him a multi-millionaire and household name at the age of 12.
The price of fame is high. If all he does is smoke some herb, then he is in good shape. Don’t move to the sauce or blow, and you will be okay. Also, this is a warning to watch who you associate with, since they will not have your best interest at heart.
Plus, dude likes that nose candy…
So, all and all, it could be worse….
