Kristin Davis' Battle With Alcoholism

Kristin Davis has opened up about her bout with alcoholism in a recent interview with Globe Magazine. She says her twenties were the worst time in her life because she was drinking too much.

"Alcohol freed me. I was really shy and I didn't know how to come out of my shell. People in the south drink a lot. From fifteen onward people hand you bourbon."

"I drank for the same reason I loved acting. I wanted to feel things and express myself and be free - and I'm not naturally that way. I wasn't outgoing. I wasn't commanding attention."

Kristin has been sober for eighteen years now! While her twenties weren't the best, her thirties turned out to be a pretty amazing decade with her role in Sex and the City. That's a hard thing to admit to, and very admirable that someone in the public eye like Kristin would talk openly about her issues.
