Celebrity status is known to be followed by a crazy lifestyle, a lot of parties, and champagne bottles with every meal. However, there are some celebrities who do not touch these stuff. Here is the list of 9 celebrities who don’t drink.
It came as a surprise to journalists and viewers alike when Jennifer Hudson said she never had a drink in her lifetime. Even though she is portraying a heroin addict in her movie “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete,” in an interview, she stated:
“I’ve never done anything, so that was hard to play this role [of a heroin addict]. I’ve never had a drink in my life. I’m sober. I’m like, ‘Okay, this is new to me.’ Normally as an actor, you have things to pull from. I was like, ‘I don’t know what it’s like to feel any of that.”
That is right; the Gossip Girl does not drink. In her interview with Allure, she stated that she never tried drugs and that It is something she ‘genuinely doesn’t have a desire for.’
Kristin Davis realized that alcohol was getting in the way of her career when she was 22 years old and she swore off of it.“I drank a lot when I was a teenager, and I don’t drink anymore because that’s when I thought, you know, I’m gonna end up a car wreck“ she said. “I got into the acting program, it was very challenging, I was hung-over, and I wasn’t doing so well in my classes. I thought, ‘Do you know what? It’s going to be one or the other. I can’t really have both.”
It seems like Kristin Davis is not the only non-drinker from the famous show. (Sex and the City is the show in question – for those who lived under a rock, or are too young to know). Her stance on drinking alcohol is rather short and sweet: “I’m not a big drinker, and when I do, I get a headache. I don’t drink or take drugs, so clothes are my only mood enhancer.”
While her antics have made the tabloids a lot of times and it did not seem like she was going to ease up, she decided to clean up her act for love. Her relationship with Luke Worrall was going through difficulties because of her drinking and she decided to sober up: “I don’t drink at all. Even a glass of wine at dinner would probably mean me going home, getting s**t-faced and then being on drugs and doing something stupid that I have to spend the next three months apologizing for… I don’t like drinking that much as I hate throwing up and the taste of alcohol.”
Our newest Batman says that rehab he went through at the turn of the millennium changed his life. In an interview with The Mirror, he said this: “Simple as this, I quit drinking. It’s really not that big a deal. It has no real bearing on anything else in my life,” he explained. “Your lifestyle changes at a certain age.”
Robert Downey Jr.
The public is slowly forgetting his struggle with narcotics and alcohol, but he never will. In a heartfelt interview with Playboy back in 2010, he said that “Not having done drugs for literally five or six years is a lifetime.” He often looks back and remembers how bad it was: “Looking back, I think, ‘Oh my God, I could have been done. I could have been so fried and so bad off and, oh my God, such a cautionary tale.”
As a former model, producer, businesswoman, author, actress, and a television personality, Tyra Banks is a role model to many. On her website, she wrote the followings: “I’ve never had any drugs, and I had a little taste of alcohol when I was 12 years old, but that’s about it.”
It is no secret that Eminem used to do drugs and drink a lot. But it is a lot less known that he almost died from an overdose after taking pills without even asking what they were. “My doctor told me the amount of methadone I’d taken was equivalent to shooting up four bags of heroin. Even when they told me I almost died, it didn’t click.”
