Megan Fox is one of several celebrities who have quit the cocktail.
The actress is well-known for her stringent diet, which she gets from personal trainer Harley Pasternak. She is extremely conscious of what she puts into her body. We understand why she avoids carbohydrates, but what about the no-alcohol rule?
Megan explained why she doesn’t drink alcohol in a recent GLAMOUR interview, and the answer might surprise you.
As it turns out, the actress has been abstaining from alcohol for much longer than her admirers suspected: “I’m always completely sober. I don’t even drink a glass of wine. I don’t ever smoke. I don’t drink coffee. I’m super strict with my diet and I never deviate,” she told GLAMOUR.
Megan Fox hasn’t had a drink in over ten years, according to the interview.
While she has been a beneficial influence on her fiancé Machine Gun Kelly, who suffered with substance abuse in the past, her motive for not drinking is purely selfish.
“When I was in Costa Rica, somebody described the purpose of alcohol with plant medicine: you use alcohol to extract the essence of a plant,” she told GLAMOUR. “And I thought, ‘That is exactly how alcohol makes me feel. As though it is extracting my essence.’ Which is why I have avoided it for so long.”
Alcohol is used to extract essential oils, alkaloids, and resins from plants, according to PPC Herbs. She misses the evening wine to best care for herself and her body.
This is comparable to why Blake Lively avoids alcohol, citing the negative affects on her mind and body in an interview with People.
