Anne Hathaway Celebrates Being 5 Years Sober!

Anne Hathaway hit a huge “milestone” in her sobriety journey!

In an interview published with The New York Times over the weekend, the Princess Diaries alum reflected on being in her forties and revealed she’s celebrating five years of sobriety now! She told the outlet:

“I don’t take it that seriously. There are so many other things I identify as milestones. I don’t normally talk about it, but I am over five years sober. That feels like a milestone to me. Forty feels like a gift. The fact of the matter is I hesitate at calling things ‘middle age’ simply because I can be a semantic stickler and I could get hit by a car later today. We don’t know if this is middle age. We don’t know anything.”

Five years sober! That’s amazing! She said she was going to do it, but not everyone goes the distance.

Anne announced she quit drinking in 2019, saying she doesn’t plan to start again until her children are out of the house! Her reasoning? The actress realized she needed to stop in order to be fully available and present for her 8-year-old son Jonathan at the time. Anne recalled on The Ellen DeGeneres Show the morning she took her son to school with a hangover:

“I’m gonna stop drinking while my son’s living at my house just because I don’t totally love the way I do it. He’s getting to an age where he really does need me all the time in the mornings. I did one school run one day where I dropped him off at school I wasn’t driving, but I was hungover. That was enough for me. I didn’t love that one.”

And clearly she was dead serious! Watch (below):

And she’s been sober ever since then! Wow! In March, the 41-year-old momma told Vanity Fair she ultimately “knew deep down” drinking wasn’t for her:

“It just felt so extreme to have to say, ‘But none?’ But none. If you’re allergic to something or have an anaphylactic reaction to something, you don’t argue with it. So I stopped arguing with it.”

Of course, Anne doesn’t judge anyone who chooses to drink. But for her, she’s found life to be “better” without it. The Devil Wears Prada star said:

“It’s a path everybody has to walk for themselves. My personal experience with it is that everything is better. For me, it was wallowing fuel. And I don’t like to wallow. The thing that I have faith in is that everybody else is going to have one or two drinks, and by the time everybody gets to two drinks, you’ll feel like you’ve had two drinks—but without the hangover.”

Congratulations to Anne on her sobriety! Reactions, Perezcious readers? Let us know!
