Bill Murray could have been an alcoholic

Los Angeles - Bill Murray insists he isn't an alcoholic because he hasn't found a nice enough drink.

The Ghostbusters star fears his love of booze may have driven him to alcoholism at one point in his career but fortunately he isn't overly fond of a particular beverage and prefers to mix up a bit.

He told The Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I like alcohol but I don't have a favourite drink, which is probably why I'm not an alcoholic. If I had a favourite I'd probably be a drunk. I like to have different drinks. Last night I was drinking something with rum in it."

The Emmy award-winning actor - who also co-owns Caddyshack Restaurant in Florida, with the slogan Eat Drink and Be Murray - puts his success down to a piece of advice he received in his early life.

He explained: "I think the only reasons I've had the career and life I've had is because someone told me secrets early on about living - the more relaxed you are, the better you are."

However, Murray, 63 - who landed his first starring role in the comedy Meatballs in 1979 - insists he always knew he would be famous.

He said: "I knew back then I was going to be rich and famous and wear red clothes and not give a damn."
