Reps for actor Dan Radcliffe have strongly denied allegations made in a UK tabloid involving an illegal substance. Reuters reports that the latest rumors surfaced in UK tabloid the Daily Mirror, claiming the Harry Potter actor smoked cannabis at a party. Reps for Dan are quoted as saying “We categorically deny the allegations regarding Daniel
Radcliffe published in today’s Daily Mirror,” his spokeswoman
said in a statement on Friday. “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.”

I hope its not true but he does smokeeAvatar ImageIceholic says: It's just cannabis... Lighten up, there's nothing wrong with it. Especially considering the dangerous legal drugs available in the UK.Avatar ImageAtticus says: God, it's only a joint, he's not doing crack and beating up old women. I smoke cannabis, I smoke it, sit inside, read or watch TV and mind my own business. Obviously the government would rather I go out, get obscenely drunk and start fights with strangers. I'm not even going to go into how cannabis is less damaging than tobacco or alcohol. If Dan did smoke, then fine, it's his choice what he does in his spare time. The tabloids need to mind their own business and stop dumbing us down with stuff that doesn't matter.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: I like to smoke turkeys...Avatar ImageBrad Ausrotas says: I think it's much more disappointing that his AGENT admits that he smokes cigarettes, which are so much worse for you, health-wise. Avatar Imagemk20 says: Whats wrong with it??....DAN still ROCKS!! \m/Avatar ImagePhoenix1946 says: In the past, Leaky has refused to post the Tabloid derogatory articles. I am disappointed that Leaky has changed that policy. True or not, why repeat negative articles from tabloids?Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: I don't care if he smoke dope at a party. If he'd been in certain parts of the U.S. or elsewhere, what he did wouldn't even be a crime. That being said, it's not smart to smoke dope -- in fact, you can become stupid. Sustaining brief impairment of short-term memory isn't good for someone who needs to be on his game. He's an actor -- he needs to show up on set, on time, and promote the movies once they have wrapped. He's not running for sainthood. Celebrity journalism is ridiculous. It's not news -- it's just gossip. Avatar Imagecghambright says: The whole thing is BOGUS! DanRad does not do that and if he does it's his business and they should just stay out of it!Avatar Imageslytheringoddess says: *sigh* Gotta love tabliods. What they do with their lifes is truely moving. XDAvatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: It's just a rumor and normally these stupid rumors are never true! This magazine "The Daily Mirror" could just be like "The National Enquirer", which is all CRAP! I don't even see why Leaky has posted this... until it's been proven true or false then there is no need for us to know honestly.Avatar ImageIceholic says: Pass it round Dan :DAvatar ImageHydrus says: I know this is garbage, and all, but I still couldn't help myself in copying their front page. It's like if a friend of mine was on the front page of the Enquirer.Avatar ImagePetra says: Well, there is a picture of him where he is smoking canabis... how can they say it's not truth when there's such a strong proof??Avatar ImageHydrus says: I know this is garbage, and all, but I still couldn't help myself in copying their front page. It's like if a friend of mine was on the front page of the Enquirer.Avatar Imageccking says: eugh smoking is an ugly habit. even the occasional roll up ones =(Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: i hope he does not!!!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: i hope he does not!!!Avatar Imagejayneonaspring says: i couldn't believe it when i saw it because i sort of see Daniel as Harry. i kinda have realised there not the same person now though. i don't really see the point of making such a big deal out of this now iv had time to think about it. as someone rightly said up the list that list aw crap iv forgot what they said. but it suited what i thoughtAvatar Imagetinagin says: An actor involved with suspicion of using drugs?!? Shocking! Okay, sarcasm aside, quite frankly I was a bit sad to hear this hit the news, true or not, because he really is a quite likable, talented kid. While I don't firmly agree that cannabis is harmless, I do believe there are worse things, health-wise, to do. Hoping that this blows over quickly.Avatar ImageJane_Potter says: ... I don't know I'm confused. I believe that it is just a rumor. Well I hope that it is just a rumor!!!Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I really don't like the tabloids. I am not even reading it. I do hope he never takes up smoking because of all the health issues. Avatar ImageAesa Haettr says: Oh NO, not pot! *gasp* ...Avatar ImageTheWizard says: Picture? Where? :oAvatar ImageLulubelleI says: I don't really belive that.Avatar Imageblue_rogue says: Maybe he didn't inhale. ;)Avatar ImageMatea says: big deal *rolls eyes*Avatar Imagewrightrox says: man..will the media ever leave people alone....i hope it was merely his own cigarette, and not a joint just for the sake of the movie at this time, after DH is over i don't think it will matter anymore, but for respect of Jo , i'd like to see him keep a low profile regarding his choice of tobacco...and if he hits the bud now and then it's his choice ...just looking out for the movie though....:DAvatar Imageginevrapotter07 says: Gawd, Dan is smoking... I'd rather he drink until he drop dead, not smoke.Avatar ImageDeliaDee says: People really need to get a little perspective. It's a doobie. He's not sitting on his porch shooting at little kids with a sawed off shotgun. He's not shooting up in his dressing room. Hell, he might not even have ever smoked weed. Everyone needs to calm down, look at the facts instead of the rumours, and cast judgment only if you are God.Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: so sad that he smokes... but at least is not weed!! OMG!! i was so shocked when i read that new!! i searched his name immediately in Google!! i had to read it myself!! then i read it wasn't weed!!! Oh God!! @Petra some mean ppl uses photoshop to make other think wrong about actors and actresses!! remember what they say about Emma!! when they said she died in a car crash!! that ppl just don't have lives and want to spend their time making fans think wrong!!Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: It was in the Daily Mirror!!!! What is their latest story about the Bat Boy? Or their latest alien invasion story? Get real.Avatar Imagemagicmaniac says: I hope its not true!! but does he actually smoke?? write on my parchment if you know!!!!Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: Who believes the rubbish in the tabloids anyway?Avatar Imagecrookshanks_luver says: Honestly, I'm much more upset knowing he smokes cigarettes than cannabis. Cigarettes will kill you! Cannabis will just make you stupid.Avatar ImageWant to be a Weasley says: It must have been Rita Skeeter with her quill!!Avatar Imagelemonade says: The Daily Mirror is almost as accurate as The Weekly World News. Is Bat boy in the picture, too? If Dan ever does something horrible, report it and I will be saddened and shocked. This doesn't qualify imo. Avatar ImageRin68nyr says: Well, it's on the news on TV, so I think Leaky had to say SOMETHING about it. It's not like Leaky said it happened...just that that magazine reported it, and Dan and his agent deny it... ErinAvatar Imagewandmastercalum says: @petra its a thing called photoshop hun. He wouldn't do it but I don't see it a bad thing. Celeb gossip is stupid!!Avatar ImageIceholic says: Thio wrote: "I don’t know how it works in UK, but around here this kind of substance is used to finance guns to criminals. The classic chain of ilegality that only gets worse when you trace it." Well, you know how to stop this: legalize it! Avatar ImageHPWonder says: Well, Petra, people can manipulate photos so they look completely different than what they are. I saw in this magazine, a girl originally and then how they are completely changed so you would NEVER recognize them. But it is sad to know Daniel smokes anyway! Avatar ImageKC Nox says: whats the big deal, leave the poor kid alone! Avatar Imagesirius17 says: yeah honestly cigarettes are more harmful than cannibas and let dan do what he wants Avatar Imagedeadtree says: It's funny that so many people are so appalled-- like "oh my god, now I have to hate him!" It's just pot, people, there are about 10 billion worse things you can be suspected of doing. If he's getting splattered on tabloids for something as minor as pot, that probably means he's about as squeaky clean as you get. ... and anyway, that boy is so high strung. He could use a little mellowing out xDAvatar ImageWickedLoz says: It's the DAILY MIRROR! I live all the way over in Australia and even I know that tabloid is about as reliable as Rita Skeeter! Shame on you Leaky. On the issue of drugs, its none of our business. Dan's old enough and ugly enough to make his own decisions based on his own morals. Personally, I have nothing against it after trying it legally in Amsterdam, however my brother has severe reactions to it that makes him paranoid and uncontrollable. Each to their own. Avatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: How common or rare is it in the UK for people to roll up their ordinary cigarettes? I mean, instead of buying the regular ones? Over here the roll-up tobacco is cheaper than regular cigarettes, so many people buy packs of roll-up tobacco and cigarette paper and filters and make their own cigarettes. Certainly, Dan doesn't need to do that because of money, but maybe he just likes it, you know? Then again, even if he was smoking something else than ordinary tobacco, it's his own business, not ours. He's old enough to make up his mind about these issues.Avatar ImageGiant Fairy says: Here was my good morning laugh : "Daniel Radcliff changes wand against joint...Drug Scandal", all that stuff. Hey DAN, just quote Bill Clinton!Say "I did not inhale" and you still can become Prime Minister! Grandmother as I am, I always thought those young actors to be "antiseptic". And if, as these papers say, he was filmed with a mobile cam, and if he sees how whambam he looks under marihuana, maybe that s the best thing to find out what it s like to loose control, and that on a party you don t have 50 friends around youAvatar ImageSectumSempra45 says: .....Im disappointed. What if all those kids of eight and nine see this? Do they just think its all right to just go out and get OD? By the way, what is Cannabis?Avatar Imagedanilo says: Reading the tabloid story, there was a party in Camden where Dan starts smoking a joint. There is no report that it's offered to anyone else, and no one else at this party asked for it to be passed around. You'd think someone would want to be able to say, 'I smoked a joint with Harry Potter!', but no - apparently no one else at this party does dope. Sorry, but if someone is smoking dope at a party, it's invariably shared - that's just dope etiquette. That person who sold the story to the tabloid filled it with details, but either he somehow missed noticing anyone else smoking, or apparently there can be such a thing as a party where smoking dope is a non-social activity... in Camden, where you can't walk without being offered skunk a minimum three times per block, day or night. If you're going to make a story, you've got to get the details right, or it's not plausible. Avatar Imageprotoj76 says: Another example of people with too much time on thier hands trying to find anything bad about anyone good. Maybe just for one day the tabloids should find something good to write. Just one copy a year .. bet it would sell just as well as the crap now!!Avatar Imagedecarus says: I agree that this isn't that big of a deal and entirely uninteresting whether it is true or not. Avatar Imagemoglet says: Given how incredibly energetic and enthusiastic Daniel always is, I'd say he doesn't give the impression of being someone who uses cannabis, any of the people I've ever known who smoked cannabis were always very laid back and relaxed (I was at art college, there were several people...) and actually those who used it regularly often had a tendency to be unconcerned about getting their work done on time!Avatar ImageAlysaw says: He's very health conscious so I'm inclined to think this is not true. When he was here performing in Equus his food had to be specially ordered, organic, and he picked over it. On the other hand he is a smoker so that just kind of contradicts what I just said. In any case, I see no big deal in smoking a joint and hope it's soon legalized. Merlin's beard, he's a normal twenty year old young man not a deity. Typical tabloid rubbish!Avatar ImageApplesArthur says: I hope it's not trueAvatar Imageprotoj76 says: Another example of people with too much time on thier hands trying to find anything bad about anyone good. Maybe just for one day the tabloids should find something good to write. Just one copy a year .. bet it would sell just as well as the crap now!!Avatar ImageDespina says: I know it's what most young people do, but I honestly believed him different from MOST young people. I know it's HIS life, but I found that picture in the Mirror quite disturbing. I feel sorry for him, having to be always on his guard (constant vigilance...), plus his "friend" behaved shamefully, selling his story to tabloids. I DON'T "hate" him, now, as someone wrote, and we don't even know what really happened, only I think I'll be more cautious in the future when forming an enthusiasitc opinion on someone.Avatar ImageCetus Williams says: Iceholic, you have a point. I think him smoking is bad enough without cannabis.Avatar Imagemk20 says: Whats wrong with it??....DAN still ROCKS!! \m/Avatar ImageDylanAqua says: No one is perfectAvatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: oops, i hope it's not true, we have gotten along thru the whole series without any drama...Avatar ImageLauraKeaton says: so what? there's a lot worse things he could have been accused of doing. tho I personally think smoking cigarettes is gross...it greatly lowers your hott factor, Dan! Eww. My advice: don't do either.Avatar ImageCaracticus says: I'm putting my vote in the "so what" camp, even if it was true. Smoking a joint at a party is socially acceptable behaviour in my opinion: sitting around in your underwear having not bathed for 2 weeks in an apartment infested with insects and other vermin and smoking a joint is very very bad... and those that tell you one leads to the other are lying to you. You have to be a pathetic loser to do the later, and Dan isn't.Avatar ImageFifi says: This is kind of disappointing. I know it's Dan's choice whether he smokes or not but I just think it's disgusting. I hope this isn't true. : (Avatar Imagemadman1277 says: Just a rumor, and anyways it isnt even that bad for you... also to Won_Two... great pic LOVE NCIS, almost as much as harry pott... almostAvatar Imagesistermol says: do any of you people saying "oh i hope he didnt" actually know anything about marijuana? did you know it could prevent the lethal symptoms of swine flu? dont believe me? look it up and honestly who cares if he smokes a joint every now and then i do it relaxes me AND prevents me from having seizures wouldnt you want to relax for a little bit if you had cameras in your face all day?Avatar Imagemadman1277 says: Just a rumor, and anyways it isnt even that bad for you... also to Won_Two... great pic LOVE NCIS, almost as much as harry potter... almostAvatar ImageSmitch says: It is none of our business if Dan Radcliffe has smoked a bit of grass or not.Avatar ImageIwishIwas@Hogwarts says: Give the kid a break if he likes to smoke the occasional joint I don't think he should be condemned for it! He could be doing much much much worse. Avatar Imagestella8h8chang says: **sigh** I'm really torn about this. On one hand, what people do in their "off time" is really nobody's business, but then again, when you're a public figure there will inevitably be people out there who take you as an example... But I have to find it kind of amusing that this morning I commented on a friend's facebook link (about the felix felicis scene from HBP) saying, "I heard that Dan-on-drugs is disturbingly close to Dan-in-real-life". Perhaps I should be careful what I write? Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: It is unfortunate that these tabloids have to propagate such rumors, but it is even more tragic that his agents feel it necessary to acknowledge this and only accomplish nothing more than the feeding of these trolls and the perpetuation of their antics.Avatar ImageLulubelleI says: I don't really belive that.Avatar Imagewing says: greatAvatar Imagewing says: greatAvatar Imagewing says: greatAvatar ImageWeird One says: Well, even if he did, big deal. While I don't use the stuff I think far too much fuss is made of it. This could very possibly be a story to take Dan down. The mere mention of his name in such a story will sell a paper or two.Avatar ImageDeliaDee says: DobbyWinkyKreacher, I really think you need to stop being such a judgmental, self-righteous twit. How about we put cameras on you 25/7 and see what sorts of things you do when you think you're just enjoying the company of your friends. Do you pick your nose? Have you ever coughed without covering your mouth? Do you not always wash up after you use the toilet? Because if any of these are so, you're just disgusting and no one wants to know you anymore. Dan doesn't answer to any of us. I don't smoke either substance (anymore) but who cares if he does? Who is anyone here to pass judgement? You would stop watching HP movies because Dan smokes (anything)? Why? What are you trying to prove? If you don't like smoke then don't smoke and don't kiss someone who smokes (and I'm sure it'll break Dan's heart if you don't kiss him). Don't boycott the man's work. That just proves that you're an idiot.Avatar Imagelozzies42 says: I laughed at the title of their article: Harry Pothead. The only thing I like about crappy tabloids is their floral use of words in titles!Avatar ImageThio says: While I believe Dan is perfectly free to smoke whatever he wants, the issue here is the substance being illegal. I don't know how it works in UK, but around here this kind of substance is used to finance guns to criminals. The classic chain of ilegality that only gets worse when you trace it. That being said, it really isn't a big deal. I would be dissapointed if this turns out to be true, of course; but I have some friends who have done the same thing and I didn't stop seeing them for that. Dan is still cool. If that was some regular legal cigarette, that's fine. If that was something illegal, he should pay the price as anyone who breaks the law would. That's it. And of course, we can't forget that tabloids are bound to exagerate things a bit. After so many years getting very little to gossip about the trio, this should be like early Christmas to this kind of low Journalism.Avatar ImagePetra says: @Calum Wilson WBM!!!!!! (wandmastercalum) I know what photoshop is, and what can reporters do with it, but isn't it stupid that after those pictures in media's, Dan's excuse is : "I didn't know what was I smoking!" I mean, I know it can be false rumores,and Dan is my favourite actor too, but maybe it really is true...Avatar Imagekbicprez says: Dan’s rep acknowledges that he smokes roll-ups. With all we know about the dangers of smoking, I’m really sorry to hear that. I couldn't care less if what he smokes is legal or not. The thought of putting something into one's mouth, SETTING FIRE TO IT, and breathing in the toxins makes me want to puke. It defies all logic to me. I lost two very close family members to cigarettes – one of them recently from lung cancer. The other died after having lived with emphysema and an oxygen tank beside her for years. Smoking is such a horrible choice to make.Avatar Imageele0206 says: I hate how people think Dan's perfect. He can do what he wants with his own life. Although, I rather hope this is not true.Avatar Imagecleverssynonym says: I heard that Dan smokes cigarettes literally all the time. Whenever I see paparazzi pictures of him he's smoking. Bleh.Avatar ImageCatherine says: thats just stupid!!!! i vknow loads of actors andstuff do drugs a lot but dan? really? hes a good (hate to say it) kid!Avatar Imagesplinch says: yes he probably does smoke pot, along with almost every one of your favorite musicians and actors, I'm sorry to shatter your pretty princess world but it is just as common as drinking, especially in the entertainment industry. unlike alcohol it has no lethal dose, does not cause violent behavior and is generally a good time. no person has ever died as a direct result of smoking marijuana, only from being stupid. so go ahead Dan, have a good time, I would worry more about you as a young guy if you did'nt. Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: he smokes!!! terrible terrible terrible... i hope its not true.Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: he smokes!!! terrible terrible terrible... i hope its not true.Avatar Imageemmy222 says: OMG I used to love daniel but know hes an idoit! if he died right now he desevers it i might be sad because hp7 wont be finished but it wouldnt affect me at all smoking is bad for yourself and the people around u and it basically sucide did u know every cigarette u smoke takes an HOUR of life away from u. disgusting!Avatar ImageFigment says: Tabloids need to give this crap up...Avatar ImageDobbyWinkyKreacher says: Dan can always save his reputation if he wanted to, by getting a test done showing no foul marijauana. make result public, Then he can sue the tabloids for defamation of character, and trying to destroy his fan base, loss of earnings etc.Avatar ImageDobbyWinkyKreacher says: Reading that story was a gut wrenching disappointment. I hope, so hope, it is not true. with today's technology...cameras can lie. Daniel surely would not be such a prize prawn as to do drugs, or smoke foul cigarettes. It spoils everything :-( it also sends the most stupid of messsages to kids everywhere. if it turns out to be true...I won't bother with HP. This has just ruined it.Avatar ImageLexitheAuror says: Why do tabloids always post negative rumors? Why not post positive ones, like Simon Cowell empties half his bank account and gives it to 50 different charities. I mean, if they don't care to find out if somethings true or not, why not say positive things?Avatar Imageharrygetsme says: whatever the actual situation, everybody's human and makes mistakes. whatever dan does is his business, and he's only accountable to himself and his family for his actions.Avatar ImageImmortal Phoenix says: I've seen the picture and you can't see what he's holding. It could well be a roll-up. The only evidence that it's not is the claims of this other guest at the party, who could just be trying to get his name in the paper. He's obviously not a friend if he's spreading this around, true or not. Although I am slightly disappointed at his smoking even cigerettes I can't imagine him doing something illegal. He has always acted like a well-adjusted person who has his head on straight and it seems out of character for him to do something illegal, whatever you think about cannabis's dangers, and risk harming his reputation and career. And I'm sure he takes the responsibility of being a roll model to millions of kids seriously. The papparazzi has been waiting for any opportunity to say something negative about him or get a picture of him falling out of a club, doing drugs or some other wild thing. The only scandalous story they've been able to print so far was his getting his kit off in Equus. They must find him very boring.Avatar Imagealicia00 says: i hope its not trueAvatar ImageImmortal Phoenix says: To those saying everyone's done it - statistically in the UK 38.8% of adults have used an illicit drug of some kind at least once, with cannabis being the most popular. So it's not everyone, or even most people, it's a little over a third. As someone else said the issue with cannabis isn't it's dangers - although it isn't harmless drink and tobacco can be worse - but the fact that it's illegal. I don't think it should be illegal but while it is it's stupid and irresponsible, and the sale of it goes towards funding other illegal things. Having said that I don't think there's any real evidence that Dan was smoking it. He could have simply been drunk in that picture, not high. And the thing in his hand could well have been a roll up, he's been reported to be a smoker before.Avatar Imageanne1 says: Daily Mail is a tabloid as bad as The Sun. It scrapes stories off the gutter and also makes things up. What makes the Mail worse is that it pretends to be a respectable 'news' paper (is a horribly bigoted one too, enough to make your blood boil). This story gives me that impression, for similar reasons to Danilo above. Or the person at the party could have made it up. What diappoints me is not the act (if true) itself, because I am not really against it, but more the fact that some t*****, presumably friend of a friend, saw fit to rat on Dan, or else make up a story about him. If true then it's Dan's business but it does disappoint me a bit that he was naive enough to trust strangers at a party. Hopefully he'll be more wary in future. Avatar Imageanne1 says: sorry I mentioned the Mail because that's where I read the story. Will rephrase. The Mirror is a tabloid JUST like the Sun. Avatar Imageanne1 says: sorry I mentioned the Mail because that's where I read the story. Will rephrase. The Mirror is a tabloid JUST like the Sun. Avatar ImageApplesArthur says: I hope it's not trueAvatar ImageTassana Burrfoot says: Seriously? Like, really? Wow.Avatar Imageas_camouflage says: I hate rumours. Last time they said Emma's dead, now this? They've gone way too far really!! I mean, there's really cigarette that looks loke the one that Dan's holding in his hand. (I don't smoke, but I saw an actor holding something like that in a drama show) Even if he smoks, who cares? Lots of people out there smokes. Just becuz he's Daniel Radcliffe, then smoking becomes a sin? Besides, the "The Daily Mirror" is real crap. I wouldn't even bother reading it. Honestly, since when does it write something real? Nasty tabloids.....Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: this seriously made me have a giggle fit XDAvatar Imagewing says: greatAvatar Imagewing says: greatAvatar Imagedoxycide says: this is just another example of how the media makes a big deal out of everything celebraties do. they make such a big deal out of it when literally MILLIONS of people are doing the same thing. it only matters now because it's someone famous. it's horrible.Avatar Imageele0206 says: I hate how people think Dan's perfect. He can do what he wants with his own life. Although, I rather hope this is not true.Avatar Imagejain says: I can't say i'm suprised something like this has happened. in fact the suprise is it hasn't happened before now. The rags in the uk have probably being trawling the gutters for years trying to find something on the Potter kids.Do i believe Dan is guilty, don't know. don't read the mirror. they ar a self rightous newspaper who lecture people on their morals while losing theirs while trying to find a scoop. Not caring whos lives they ruin. I hope Dan hasn't been stupid, he's not perfect and that might be what he's guilty of. But some times we over look the morals of the judas's who sell their pictures and the papers that buy them and the people that buy them.i f as someone has said on this site they won't watch HP again, this has ruined it for them. Why! Why do in cases such as this do we forget the fantastic generous supportive person Dan seems to be? Is that how we judge people, on one act of stupidity. I'm sure there are many on this site enjoying Dan's fall from grace, well, Dan has my continued support. I like the man he appears to be.Avatar Imagesplinch says: Fall from grace???? you people live in a bubble, Dan is fine and normal, you are scared and swayed by lies and fear. I suggest you join dan and lighten up with a nice smoke.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: I hope it's not true... but then again everyone does stuff which people tell them not to do. As long as he is still down-to-earth and gives money to charity and stuff then I think that we can ignore the rumours. Remember, they are tabloids! And its the Mirror! Come on people! The tabloids often make stuff up! I just hope it's false and he sues them for damages!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: I hope it’s not true… but then again everyone does stuff which people tell them not to do.

The tabloids often make stuff up! I just hope it’s false and he sues them for damages!Avatar Imagemoglet says: Dan has so many good qualities, none of us are perfect, please don't expect him to be either. I think smoking cigarettes is a bad idea, but lots of people do it, actually quite a lot of actors do, they spend a lot of time hanging around between takes and sometimes pop out for a cigarette. You can't condemn someone for this, it's unrealistic. I've seen him taking time between takes to talk to a young fan, he did it very willingly and made the little boy's day, even doing a high five with him. He lends his support to some great causes and has many admirable qualities, give him a break please those of you who are being so hard on him.Avatar ImageRose-Mclane says: who cares? Yeah, he could possibly smoke pot. I’m sorry to shatter your pretty princess world but it is just as common as drinking, especially in the entertainment industry. And its easier to get a hold of too. Who cares? He could have been shooting up crack and taking acid or something much worse. Who cares.Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Honestly, who gives a crap? We've all done it (those of us who've lived) the man's 20. It's not disappointing he's done it but that some half wit has ruined a life experience we've all trudged through for him.

People sitting in class pull out tobacco and papers to prepare for the breaks between classes. it is VERY likely that dan was just smoking a rolled cigarette. if he was smoking something other than tobacco, then he is only on the same level as more than half of the teenagers living in europe or the us. either way, there is no issue here.Avatar Imagesueml says: Who cares? I smoked it a great deal when I was younger too (and made it through college cum laude and law school summa cum laude). In Massachusetts you don't even get arrested for that anymore - you just get a fine, like a speeding ticket. Plus, it may not even be true - according to his reps. Pot is much less dangerous than drinking too much (notice the words "too much"), should be legalized.Avatar ImageBoyWithALightningScar says: Oh, so what... even if it is true, who cares? Leave the guy alone. I hate this paparazzi shish.Avatar Imageharrypottergirlll says: Wow, the things they come up with....

Ha ha. :"=AAvatar ImageAsi says: If honestly I was muh more disopinted when I read that he was smoking(a few years ago) , at that time Harry and Dan was kind of One person, I have been thinking that Harry looks like nDan and Dan is hero about whom we read in the books, But now in these few years I understood that I myself love and admire as an ideal Harry Potter created by Jo and not actor Dan Redcliffe who is plying Harry Potter, the point is Dan can do everything he won't as long as he is in a good state for playing Harry :)Avatar Imagesimos says: I am shocked by the amount of comments this story got. If it's rubbish, why are so many people interested in it ?Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: Message #2: And the theme-park pic of him is really hot!Avatar Imagehereward says: Since when did Leaky start covering this celeb-gossip stuff? This story is a bit of a joke if you ask me and not worth getting upset about. It doesn't look much like Dan, and if it is him, so what? He is an adult and can make his own choices. I would hope he is smart enough to treat everything in moderation.

It is just pot. Calm down!Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: Sheesh, leave the guy alone! GSG is right when she said he isn't running for sainthood, lol. Who cares! :DAvatar ImageJTEL99 says: Sheesh, leave the guy alone! GSG is right when she said he isn't running for sainthood, lol.

But fact is, it is not legal yet. Let's hope it will be in the future. It really is bad for peoples health, but so is regular cigarettes.Avatar Imagealegria35 says: This is tabloid material, it's all crap, and they use famous people so their paper will sell. It's just pure business, nothing personal. It's just that it's Dan they are talking about. They can't right anything bad about him, so why not create one for him. Hey, good or bad publicity is still publicity. At least people are talking about him, not putting him in oblivion.Avatar Imagealegria35 says: This is tabloid material, it’s all crap, and they use famous people so their paper will sell.

This is a misguided idea which plays along with the sickening notion put forward by the tabloids that one is guilty until proven innocent. Reject that sh!te for what it is - a perversion of the ideals of a free society. Do not go along with stupid people who would flush civil liberties down the toilet.Avatar Imagedanilo says: 'Dan can always save his reputation if he wanted to, by getting a test done showing no foul marijauana. make result public, ...'

Isn't that old news? He's an adult. It's very British and European. I don't find it attractive but neither is it offensive. Leaky is fine in posting this because they are reporting what Dan's reps are saying. They did not post the original tabloid article. It has grown in attention and has become a bigger news item that should be addressed. I just think it's sad that the media & press seem to live off this stuff. Leave the poor guy alone. He deserves peace. Stop trying to scandalize everyone!Avatar Imagepfowlerp says: It's the tabloids, what else is their to say!!!Avatar ImageethanHP says: Tabloids would really love if any of them would do drugs, that's what I find disguting, how pathetic the media is nowadays and how people just buy everything they say. I'm sure it's not true, because the last thing he wants is to give the media what they want. But it's such an hypocresy from everyone who makes a deal out of things like this, when the truth is your sons, daughters, even all of you when you were younger (or even now too) have done things like this too or even worse. It's pathetic this society wants famous people to educate their children, you all should be the ones doing that job.
