Anne Hathaway is giving up alcohol for 18 years for this sweet reason

Anne Hathaway has taken parenting to a next level.

The Devil Wears Prada star has announced that she's planning on ditching the booze for a whole 18 years, and it's all for the benefit of her three-year-old son, Jonathan.

During her recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 36-year-old revealed her intentions to the talk show host . "I quit drinking back in October, for 18 years," she said. "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."

Anne went onto recall a time when she was suffering from a hangover, but still had to fulfil all of her usual responsibilities. "I did one school run one day where I dropped him off at school, I wasn’t driving, but I was hungover and that was enough for me. I didn't love that one," she explained to Ellen.

The actor and her husband, Adam Schulman, welcomed their first child, Jonathan, back in 2016. This means that he will be around 20 years of age when Anne will be able to imbibe freely again. However, if Anne and Adam decide to have any more kiddos, that 18-year ban could be extended for a much longer amount of time.

Anne seems to think that she will definitely miss the boozing, though. The Oscar-winner told Ellen a story of the time that she and her husband got super drunk with two other household names, Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves, while they were filming Serenity in the beautiful island that is Mauritius.

"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?" she said, turning to the show's audience. "I was just kinda stumbling in with one eye open."

After the meeting concluded, Anne did the honourable thing and confessed that she was hungover. Although Knight said that he couldn't tell, the next time, he totally could.

To each their own. But Anne definitely deserves credit where credit's due.
