Celebrities aren't all about champagne brunches and Cîroc-infused nights. Jennifer Hudson surprised Chelsea Handler last week when she admitted she had never had a drink in her life -- despite playing a heroin addict in the new movie "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete."
But Hudson isn't the only star to declare herself sober, of course. Check out these 19 celebrities who have said they don't imbibe, from Kim Kardashian to Blake Lively.
"I've never done anything, so that was hard to play this role [of a heroin addict]. 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," Hudson said on "Chelsea Lately" in October 2013.
“I don’t drink. I’ve never tried a drug," she told Allure. "It's just something that I genuinely don't have a desire for."
The comedian, who is outspoken about his recovery from drugs and alcohol, celebrated his tenth anniversary of being sober in December 2012 with this message: "10 years clean today. Thanks for all your messages of love. Anyone can get clean, one day at a time."
Despite playing a drug addict on television as "Nurse Jackie," Falco has been sober for 21 years. She described her recovery to the New York Post as "It’s like learning to ride a bike, you know? You have to get your bearings and you have to stay stable. And balanced.”
"I do not drink alcohol at all. My sisters drink, so when they get a little crazy, I am there to pull them down," she told People. That didn't stop her from shilling for Midori.
“You know, I went through a normal kind of late teens, early 20s drinking, but it was a choice I made, because I didn’t think it was very good for my life," she told BlackBook.
The former "Friends" star hasn't drank since entering rehab in the late '90s for an addiction to Vicodin. He told ABC News in May 2013, "The thing that I'm most proud of in my life is that if a stranger came up to me and said, 'I can't stop drinking. I can't stop drinking. Can you help me?' I can say, 'Yes, I can help you.'"
Davis went sober at age 22 when she found her drinking was interfering with her acting aspirations. “Sure, sometimes I miss it,” she told The Week. “Every once in a while, I’ll be with friends and they’ll be drinking red wine and I’ll think, in a really innocent way, Oh wow, that’s such a wonderful glass of red wine. Wouldn’t it be fun to drink it? Maybe it would be fine, but it’s really not worth the risk.”
After battling addiction to drugs and alcohol, Eminem got sober several years ago.
"You gotta remember I hadn't recorded a song sober in seven years. So it took me awhile to even feel like I could record a song sober ... I don't know the last time I shot a video sober, without drinking or taking anything. It's been years," he told Vibe.
"I think that ruins your skin. Of course, during celebratory toasts, everybody's like, 'You can't toast with water!' So I'll toast with alcohol and just take a sip," she told InStyle.
"I got away with it more or less unnoticed. I was a maniac on the booze but I only remember it fondly," he told the Daily Mail.
Davis isn't the only sober "SATC" lady. “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," she said (via Yahoo!).
"Seven years sober. I'm really grateful. It’s really lovely to be present in my life," he told Ellen DeGeneres earlier this year. "I was terrified [of being sober] because, I'm not saying I was a great actor before or a great actor since, but I was terrified that whatever my capacity was as an actor beforehand, however little or large — it would completely dispappear."
"I had been to rehab several times and reached a point where I was taking more of what I was doing in hopes that I wouldn't wake up. And when I got to that point, the next morning I woke up and I was like, 'I just prayed for death. What the hell is wrong with me?'" she told Anderson Cooper, on how she hit rock bottom and finally got sober.
Jada Pinkett Smith
"I found myself drinking two bottles of wine on the couch and I said, 'Jada, I think we've got a problem here,'" she said (via Contact Music). "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."
