Unbelievably, There's a Celebrity Who's Never Had a Drink in Her Life
Can you even believe that Jennifer Hudson -- a 32-year-old woman working in Hollywood -- is sober? A teetotaler, if that's not too outdated a word? Because she is, and even if the first real reaction here is shock, the second is -- and should be -- pride.
Jennifer recently appeared on Chelsea Handler's show, where she discussed what it was like preparing to play a heroin-addicted mother in one of her new films, "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete," and had this to say about her inexperience:
''I've never done anything, so that was hard to play this role. I've never had a drink in my life. I'm sober. I'm like, 'OK, this is new to me.' Normally as an actor, you have things to pull from. I was like, 'I don't know what it's like to feel any of that.' ''
Weird, right? Totally admirable, but strange in this day and age -- and that particular culture -- to be sure.
Good on you, girl!
