Anne Talking About Giving Up Drinking on Ellen
All it can take is one bad drinking experience for someone to swear off alcohol, but for Anne Hathaway, it involved Matthew McConaughey and a few terrible hangovers. On Tuesday, the Serenity actress sat down with Ellen DeGeneres, where she discussed her upcoming movie and how it ultimately led to the decision to give up alcohol for the next 18 years. While Anne couldn't exactly remember a night out in Mauritius with Matthew and his wife, Camila Alves, she remembered a very hungover meeting with their director the next day, which she detailed in the video.
Following that experience and some other rough mornings, Anne made the official decision to quit drinking for 18 years this past October. "I'm gonna stop drinking while my son's living in my house just because I don't totally love the way I do it and he's getting to an age where he really does need me all the time in the mornings," she said of her and husband Adam Shulman's 2-year-old son, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman.
Waking up with a vicious hangover is a valid reason to want to stop drinking, but that combined with a young child and morning duties solidified Anne's decision. "I did one school run one day where I wasn't driving but I was hungover, and that was enough for me," she said. "I didn't love that." And for Ellen, that's "another reason I don't want kids."
