Anne Hathaway is setting the record straight about her no-alcohol rule.
In a new cover interview for Modern Luxury, the 36-year-old actress and mother of one opened up about comments she made on The Ellen DeGeneres Showin January, where she said she was going to refrain from drinking while her son Jonathan Rosebanks, 3, “is living in my house.”
The decision, she says now, is a logistical one completely based on how she feels after she drinks, Hathaway told the magazine, as opposed to a “moralistic” choice — and certainly not one she’s projecting onto anyone else.
“I didn’t put [a drink] down because my drinking was a problem; I put it down because the way I drink leads me to have hangovers and those were the problem,” saidThe Hustlestar.“My last hangover lasted for five days. When I’m at a stage in my life where there is enough space for me to have a hangover, I’ll start drinking again, but that won’t be until my kid is out of the house.”
“But, I just want to make this clear: Most people don’t have to do such an extreme thing,” Hathaway clarified. “I don’t think drinking is bad. It’s just the way I do it — which I personally think is really fun and awesome — is just not the kind of fun and awesome that goes with having a child for me. But this isn’t a moralistic stance.”
