Anne Hathaway has made the admirable decision to stop drinking.

Stopping by the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, Hathaway recalled a terrible hangover she had after a wild night with her Serenity co-star Matthew McConaughey and his wife, Camila Alves. The worst part? She had to go to an important business meeting the next morning.

"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?" Hathaway 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."

The actress continued: "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.'"

That icky feeling you get after a few glasses of wine is one Hathaway wants to avoid in the foreseeable future, or at least until her 2-year-old son, Jonathan, is grown.

"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," Hathaway explained her decision.

"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," the actress added.

Hats off to Anne for her inspirational commitment, as we imagine it can't be easy!
