The Word: Butterbeers flowing on ‘Harry Potter’ set?

Harry Potter, you saucy minx!

Now that he’s done being Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe is coming clean about wizarding under the influence.

“I can honestly say I never drank at work on ‘Harry Potter.’ I went into work still drunk, but I never drank at work. I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes,” Radcliffe says in an interview with Heat magazine. “I have a very addictive personality. It was a problem. People with problems like that are very adept at hiding it. It was bad. I don’t want to go into details, but I drank a lot and it was daily — I mean nightly.”

We’re happy to hear that Radcliffe, wise young man that he is, has since sobered up — allowing us to devise “Harry Potter” drinking games with a clear conscience. Our personal golden snitch: A shot of him getting queasy on a broomstick and/or slurring his way through Parseltongue.

Beckham ‘pretty OK’

After comedian James Corden suggested that David Beckham had a little assistance with his H&M underwear campaign ads, the soccer star is responding. “I’ve never, ever padded out my pants or shoved socks down there. I’ve never had to for any of the photo shoots I’ve done because, hopefully, I don’t need to,” Beckham tells the Daily Mirror. “Well, let’s just say I’ve been told I don’t need any help in that department. I think I’m pretty OK.”

We did a little research — we owe you one, Internet! — and we’re very enthusiastically siding with Becks.

You can take the girls out of Jersey …

Hoboken may have denied Snooki and JWoww a filming permit, but that’s not going to stop the “Jersey Shore” ladies from setting their new spinoff in the Garden State. Undeterred, they’re working “round the clock” to find a new location, reports TMZ.

New Jersey, you really need to get over yourself and embrace these kids — it’s rare that anyone who has ever escaped your borders even considers returning.
