The Hollywood stereotype of the champagne-quaffing, permanently sloshed celebrity, flitting from glamorous party to glamorous party, getting more boozed as the night (or day) goes on, is a lot further from the truth than many of us think.

It turn out, there are loads of A-list celebs who are actually total teetotallers, not touching a drop of alcohol – ever.

Their motivations are hugely varied. Some prefer to abstain from booze because they’re just sick of the hangovers, while others want to live a healthier lifestyle overall, and some have complex histories with substance abuse, so staying away from alcohol is an absolute necessity.

Whether you’re looking at quitting booze altogether or just want a bit of motivation to help you cut back or take a short break from drinking, these celebs will offer you some inspiration as you seek to walk down the straight and narrow path.

“I don’t drink. I’ve never tried a drug,” the 32-year-old mother and wife of Ryan Reynolds told Allure.

“It’s not like I decided on these strict lifestyle choices and I’m enforcing them. It’s just something that I genuinely don’t have a desire for.”

The British tennis star always needs to be in top-top shape, so he can’t exactly be hitting the pub every Saturday night. But it turns out the 32-year-old just doesn’t like alcohol, full stop.

“I hate alcohol,” he told the UK’s Telegraph in 2009. “I’m not a fan of going out and getting smashed.”

Anne says she plans to give up alcohol until her son turns 18. “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,” she told US talk show host Ellen Degeneres.

It was a few bad hangovers at inappropriate moments – like when she needed to attend important work meetings – that finally convinced her she needed to stop. “I wasn’t driving, but I was hungover and that was enough for me. I didn’t love that one,” she said.

The Harry Potter star suffered from alcoholism for years, and gave up drinking a month after filming the finale Harry Potter movie.

“I change when I’m drunk. I’m one of those people who changes. There is something in any person who drinks in a way that’s clearly not good for them, something that is attracted to that chaos,” he told the UK Telegraph.

But now, he is fully sober. “It’s lovely. I barely think about it [alcohol].”

Responding to a question posed by a follower on Instagram recently, the Swedish supermodel wrote: “[Getting sober] was a struggle in the beginning because I’m an alcoholic (something you have to remind yourself of for the rest of your life) but it’s the best decision I’ve ever made.

“I don’t think I would be alive [without SATC]. I’m an addict. I’m a recovering alcoholic. If I hadn’t found acting … acting is the only thing that made me want to ever get sober,” she told Metro UK.

The High School Musical hunk says going sober changed his life, after struggling with alcohol and drug addiction for years.

He told Elle: “What I found is structure. That led me to a balance of opposites: You get out of life what you put in. There was a moment when my morning routine was, like, Get up and Google yourself. But that stopped, dramatically and instantly, probably three years ago. I realised that viewing yourself through other people’s pictures is not living your own life. I wasn’t really being myself. A lot of my hobbies had gone out the window. I couldn’t skateboard or surf for fear of being followed. Crossing the line of fear is what leads to greatness.”
