Daniel Radcliffe was seen smoking on the set of Kill Your Darlings in New York City on Tuesday (April 17). However – lighting up a cigarette was not part of a scene. The actor is a known longtime smoker.
Back in 2008 – a source working with his Harry Potter co-stars revealed their comments on his nicotine addiction.
The insider said, “Daniel has recently been smoking up to 20 cigarettes a day. Every time they call ‘Cut’, he lights up. It’s disgusting. Friends and co-stars including Rupert Grint have been warning him about the dangers of smoking. But he doesn’t take any notice.”
However Ben Foster – who plays William Burroughs in Kill Your Darlings – has been praising Daniel for his work on this film.
He said, “He’s done some work in this film which I think is going to shock and impress and put to bed so many doubting minds. Everyone seems to be ready to cut the man down, and he’s going to prove them wrong. He’s a hell of a talent.’”
