“Anne Hathaway Opens Up About Her Decision for Sobriety and Motherhood – NBC Connecticut”

Anne Hathaway, known for her roles in “The Princess Diaries” and “The Idea of You,” has reached a significant milestone in her life. The 41-year-old actress recently revealed to the New York Times that she has been sober for over five years, a decision she sees as a huge accomplishment.

Hathaway admitted that she doesn’t usually discuss her sobriety, but felt that reaching the five-year mark was worth mentioning. She explained to Vanity Fair that she knew deep down that alcohol wasn’t for her and decided to stop arguing with that fact.
