No More Glug-glug? The Real Reason Why Anne Hathaway Quit Alcohol

Anne Hathaway mentioned earlier this year that she proposed to avoid consuming alcohol until her son, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman, turned 18. Jonathan, whom she raises with her spouse, Adam Shulman, is only 3 years old. The Oscar-winner insists this was not due to a moralistic stance but because she has problems about drinking alcohol and her choice stems from the fact that cocktails give her horrid hangovers.

The brunette star added that sometimes her hangovers would last over five days and insisted that she ceased drinking not because her drinking became a problem but because the way she drank led to huge hangovers and that was the real problem. She admitted that her last hangover lasted five full days.

The Les Miserables star added that at this stage in her life when there was adequate space for her to have a hangover, she would start drinking again, but only after her kid was out of the house. But she desired to clarify that most people do not need to resort to such extreme behavior.  She did not think that drinking was bad but the way she did it, which she personally thought was really fun and awesome, did not quite jell with having a child. The young mother did it so that she could be ‘fully there’ for her young boy, and that’s a decision which we laud her for.

The star shocked fans when she confirmed having quit drinking back in October, for 18 more years while her son was in her house just because she did not love the way her hangovers hit her and her son was at an age when he really did need her all the time, especially in the mornings. She did one school run where she dropped him off at school when she wasn’t driving, but she was extremely hungover and it really was too much for her to handle.
