Knee Deep In Denial: Anne Hathaway Stops Drinking Because She Doesn’t Have A Drinking Problem?
So, Anne Hathaway has a drinking problem. Or she doesn’t, but she wants to stop drinking because she often drinks in excess, has insane hangovers, and is unable to care for her son properly because of the hangovers. Oh wait, that still sounds like a drinking problem.
Back in January of 2019, Hathaway told Ellen DeGeneres that she stopped drinking back in October of 2018 because she couldn’t handle the hangovers while taking care of her three-year-old son.
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 mornings. I wasn’t driving, but I was hungover. That was enough for me. I didn’t love that one.
In more recent interviews, she has continued talking about her (not) drinking problem.
She told Tatler the following…
I feel like a traitor. My issue is I just love it. So. Much. But the way I do it makes me unavailable for my son. 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. I will never be that person who can nurse a glass of wine throughout an entire evening.
And in another interview with the Boston Common, she made it clear that she did not give up drinking because it was a problem…
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…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.
So yeah, clearly Anne is still in denial when it comes to her drinking problem. If the hangovers that come from drinking all night lead to you not being able to care for your son in the morning…then IT’S A PROBLEM!
That’d be like a food addict saying, “It’s not the eating that’s the problem. It’s all the weight I gain after eating it!”
Anne has a drinking problem, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she goes back to drinking soon. It won’t get better until she admits it’s a real problem.
