10 Women Celebrities Who Don’t Drink
Most celebrity news we hear about pertains to drunk driving incidents, pictures of wild parties, and drinking expensive alcohol. But there’s another end of the spectrum – celebrities who don’t drink at all. If you’re a woman looking for some strong female motivation from celebrities, check out these women who say no to sipping on alcohol, despite their celebrity lifestyles.
1. Blake Lively
Blake says she’s always been sober. She chooses not to drink and has never tried a drug. When asked why, she says that she just genuinely doesn’t have a desire to drink or do drugs. She’d rather splurge on delicious food than sip alcohol. She also says she’d much rather stay home and relax than be out on the town with a drink in her hand
2. Naomi Campbell
Naomi admits that her scandalous moments, made public by the paparazzi and media, all stem from issues with alcohol. She now chooses not to drink, admitting also discovering an allergy to alcohol, making the effects much worse. She boasts now having more energy and fun now, as a sober woman, than she ever did when drinking. She enjoys being able to stay out late – sans drinking – and wake up just fine without a hangover.
3. Katy Perry
While most pop singers are all about the parties and the booze, Katy Perry decided to give up alcohol years ago, allowing her to better focus on her career. She talks about how intense and demanding being a singer is, so she has no time to mess around with alcohol. Her desire to further her career and stay at the top of her game trumps any desire to go to wild parties and drink heavily. Many celebrities lose sight of this and get seduced by the glitz and glamour and big parties.
4. Lana Del Rey
Lana admits drinking excessively as an adolescent, even being sent to boarding school at age 14 to get away from her alcohol addiction. Her parents were worried – as was Lana – when the realization sunk in that she had a serious problem. Now she is proud to not touch alcohol, even though her brooding songs may make you think she’s a drinking starlet.
5. Jennifer Hudson
Growing up on Chicago’s South Side, Jennifer Hudson remembers seeing too much pain and struggling associated with drugs and alcohol among those around her in the rough neighborhood. Because of these experiences and the ruined lives she witnessed, she proudly does not drink, smoke, or use any drugs whatsoever. She has wholeheartedly committed to sobriety, especially after her own traumatic event – her mother, brother, and nephew were murdered by her brother-in-law under the influence.
6. Christina Ricci
You probably remember this actress from a certain subset of movies, mostly dealing with issues like depression, alcohol, and drugs. It probably brought about ideas of this starlet certainly not being sober, but in reality, Christina does not drink or do drugs whatsoever after developing issues in her teenage years, when her fame was ballooning.
7. Daisy Lowe
Daisy Lowe, beautiful English fashion model, is proud to completely abstain from alcohol, like her mother. Her clean lifestyle, according to Lowe, has attributed to an even better career in fashion and modeling and transformed her life for the better. She certainly isn’t your typical 21-year-old, saying no to alcohol, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.
8. Leona Lewis
Once again, it’s hard to imagine these pop sensations as staying away from alcohol, but there are plenty of inspiring women who do just that. Leona mentions that when her debut single, Bleeding Love, rose to number one on the charts, she celebrated with non-alcoholic champagne and had a blast. She claims to dislike the taste of alcohol and is completely content with a non-alcohol lifestyle.
9. Jada Pinkett Smith
Jada will be the first to say that she doesn’t go near alcohol. She grew up with two heavily addicted parents and soon found herself following in their footsteps. She had a moment of clarity and realized she absolutely needed a lifestyle change. From that point on, she went completely cold turkey, never taking a sip of alcohol again. She’s been sober for eight years from that life-changing day.
10. Kristin Davis
You probably remember Kristin Davis as the actress who played Charlotte in the TV show Sex and the City. While the beautiful starlet was an active drinker on the show (which depicted four women in New York City, usually with a cocktail or glass of wine in hand), her real life drinking habits are much different. And by different, I mean nonexistent. At 22-years-old, Kristin took the leap of sobriety. She was so young but already could tell drinking was seriously getting in the way of her acting aspirations and goals. She took the sobriety plunge when she was showing up to acting classes hung over and not doing well in her classes in general. She realized it had to be one or the other – alcohol or acting. She chose the latter and hasn’t had a sip of alcohol since, all the while her career has blossomed.
