Anne Hathaway Had a 5-Day Hangover
In an interview with Tatler magazine, Anne Hathaway opened up about her life as a mother to three-year-old Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman — specifically, how the “just one drink” method doesn’t really work for her as a parent.
Hathaway explained that the way she drinks makes her “unavailable to [her] son”, which is what “bothers” her about her drinking habits.
“My last hangover lasted for five days,” she said.
“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 told Tatler.[irp posts=9600]
“I will never be that person who can nurse a glass of wine throughout an entire evening.”
While speaking with Boston Common, Hathaway took the time to clarify her previous statement.
“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.”
She then added that she in no way is saying others should take the same measures she is.
“I just want to make this clear: Most people don’t have to do such an extreme thing. 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.”
Drinking isn’t the only thing that Anne Hathaway has given up, she also “stopped being vegan.”
She and her husband, Adam Shulman, were dining at a Michelin-star restaurant with Matt Damon in Iceland while filming 2014’s Interstellar when Damon decided to leave their meal entirely up to the chef. Soon, fish arrived at their table.[irp posts=1231]
“So then I was the only chick and I’m the vegan and everyone’s just going with the flow,” Hathaway recalls.
“So I asked [she puts on a small embarrassed voice]: ‘Is your fish local?’ And they said: ‘Do you see that fjord?’ So I had a piece of salmon and my brain felt like a computer rebooting.”
