Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe never watches the hit films – because he is too embarrassed to see himself on the screen.

Daniel, 22, says he hates seeing himself on screen in the boy wizard role that made him a worldwide star and multi-millionaire.

Speaking to the Mirror newspaper he said: “I’d cringe so hard my face would fall off.”

The actor, who played JK Rowling’s hero from eleven years of age, also admitted he started to drink too much while filming the last instalment.

He said: “I was able to do my job and never drank at work, but it was a daily thing leading me down a very, very destructive path.”
