Hathaway quits drinking

Anne Hathaway has given up drinking for the next 18 years, admitting she "doesn't love" being hung over and looking after her two-year-old son Jonathan.

The 36-year-old actress shares her son with husband Adam Shulman, and is relishing every aspect of first-time parenthood. However, Anne did admit that being a mother has changed one major part of her life - after she decided to ditch the alcohol for the sake of her little boy.

"I quit drinking back in October, for 18 years. I'm going to stop drinking while my son is in my house 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 mornings," she explained as she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"I did one school run one day where I dropped him off at school, I wasn't driving, but I was hung over and that was enough for me. I didn't love that one."

Host Ellen then quipped: "Yeah. That's another reason I don't want kids."

Anne also made the difficult decision to go teetotal after failing to remember a night out drinking with Serenity co-star Matthew McConaughey on the island of Mauritius, where they shot the film.

"We drank the night away, and then I had to go to a meeting with Steven Knight, our director, the next day, and I was just kinda - have you guys ever had to go to a meeting hungover?" Anne asked the audience. "I was just kinda stumbling in with one eye open and I was trying to convince him about certain things about my character."

"And at the end of it I said, 'Listen, I have a confession. I was hungover the entire time.' And he just goes, "Oh, really? I couldn't tell'. Then two days later we had another meeting and I showed up and he said, 'Oh, now I can tell.'"
