I love it: Anne Hathaway on why she gave up alcohol after becoming a mum

Anne Hathaway adores her son, three-year-old Jonathan.

And since she welcomed him, she decided to make some big shifts in her life, that would help her adapt seamlessly to motherhood. 

She told Tatler magazine that, after 18 years of drinking, she wanted to be sober for her son. 

She said, ''My issue is I just love it. So. Much. But the way I do it makes me unavailable for my son.''

She continued, ''My last hangover lasted for five days. I’d earned it: it was a day drinking session with friends that went into an evening birthday party with one of my drinking buddies.

She added, ''I will never be that person who can nurse a glass of wine throughout an entire evening.''

The 36-year-old, who is married to actor and producer Adam Shulman, told Ellen DeGeneres’ chat show that she is “going to stop drinking while my son is living in my house”.

The Oscar winner said, ''Just because I don’t totally love the way I do it and he’s getting to an age where he really does need me all the time in the morning.''

When it came to the subject of marriage, she revealed that she gets advice from fellow actor and Interstellar co-star Sir Michael Caine.

She said, ''Michael and I don’t really have a ring-you-up sort of relationship. But he’s always very warm and lovely when we run into each other. He gives me marriage advice. Separate bathrooms. When he told me that, I laughed and he looked at me and said ‘I’m serious, it’s such an important part of the marriage’.”

That's a tip we'll take on board, thanks Michael.
