9 Sober Celebrities
The star plays a drug addict in her new movie, “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete.” However, she had nothing to base her role off of because she’s never tried alcohol or drugs.
Hudson said: "I've never done anything, so that was hard to play this role. I've never had a drink in my life. I'm sober. I'm like, 'Okay, this is new to me.' Normally as as actor, you have things to pull from. I was like, 'I don't know what it's like to feel any of that.’”
Chelsea Handler was stunned and Hudson replied, "I've never been interested [in alcohol]. Nobody ever believes it."
1. Bradley Cooper
Though he was the star of the “Hangover,” Cooper hasn’t had a drink since he was 29 after bashing his head into a concrete floor. It was certainly a wakeup call for the actor who has now been sober for nine years.
Going through many years of his life struggling with addiction, Eminem decided to sober up and record his first album (“Relapse”) without the help of drugs or alcohol.
3. Blake Lively
Her character in “Gossip Girl” was a frequent partier but the actress does not drink, nor has she ever tried drugs as she told Allure last year.
4. Tyra Banks
The celeb posted on her website that she, as well, has not tried drugs and alcohol, Although she will order a glass of wine sometimes to look sexy.
5. Kim Cattrall
The “Sex and the City” actress appears to be very different from the lady she plays on television. Cattrall told Yahoo: “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.” Who would have thought?
Even back when she was “Jenny from the Block,” Lopez was always raised to not rely on alcohol and drugs and has said: “I don't need to drink to have a good time."
7. David Beckham
8. Jada Pinkett Smith
The actress once battled alcohol addiction and decided it was interfering with her life: "I had problems with alcohol and I really had to get in contact with the pain, whatever that is, and then I had to get some other tools in how to deal with the pain. From that day on I went cold turkey; I haven't had a drink in eight years."
9. Tobey Maguire
Struggling with alcohol addiction as a teenager, Maguire has since been 17 years sober saying, “it doesn't seem like I'm made to have a little bit [of alcohol] – it seems to be I'm made to have more than a little bit! I had a lot of fun, but what it did cumulatively to my life was not worth it."
