Although it can be hard to imagine a glamorous Hollywood party scene without sipping on glasses of champagne, these single celebrities have proven you can still party and enjoy yourself too, while embracing the sober life.
Addiction, trauma, and mental health issues do not discriminate. No matter how bright your star shines on Hollywood Boulevard, at the end of the day we are all human. Just when you thought you had nothing in common with the latest “it” girl or guy, here are 15 celebrities that are sober and single, just like you!
In an exclusive interview with Life & Style back in 2013, the English supermodel and actress explained, “I gave up drinking alcohol,” also revealing, “Not drinking makes me a lot happier.”
The 49-year-old supermodel is currently single and has said that she finds dating hard because of the industry she’s in, but isn’t interested in looking for love right now.
The Pretty Little Liars actress told Instyle earlier this year that her decision to embrace the sober life all started when she decided to chop off most of her hair into the cute bob hairstyle she has now. “I tried really hard to be the social butterfly,” the actress said after years of trying to find her place in the Hollywood party scene. “When I was younger, I was constantly wanting to be with or date someone because I was so deathly afraid of being single or by myself,” she said. “Now, I’m at the point where if I meet someone they better really elevate my life, because I love being single.” Still, she’s open to dating and even uses a dating app.
The singer publicly announced why he stopped drinking alcohol in a tweet back in 2015 that was linked to a tell-all article on the subject. Posner explains his messy pattern of addiction throughout the excerpt, noting “I decided I couldn’t let alcohol rob me of enjoying my life’s special moments.”
Posner appears to have always had a very specific idea of his ideal girl, which may be why he’s not super active, at least publicly, on the dating scene. In a 2014 interview with Refinery 29, he said he wasn’t interested in a celebrity girlfriend and is looking for a “normal” girl. “I haven’t found her yet,” he added, “but I’m looking.

tried marriage counseling, but Kim finally chose to file for divorce.

The Scottish actor struggled for years with addictions to both drugs and alcohol before seeking treatment. Now 20 years later, Butler is still embracing the sober life.

This Sex and the City star was quoted in a passage by Marie Claire U.K. expressing how she didn’t think she would make it past the age of 30. Davis admitted “I realized it was not going to end well. I got into the acting program, it was very challenging, I was hungover and I wasn’t doing so well in my classes. I thought, “Do you know what? It’s going to be one or the other. I can’t really have both.”
During a 2019 interview with Red Table Talk, Davis told hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, and, her mom, Adrienne Banfield-Norris that she didn’t deliberately form a plan to be single at that point in her life — it’s just how things turned out. But she added, “I do remember being young and thinking, ‘Why are all these people getting married?'”
The actor discussed his sobriety in his GQ cover story back in 2013, explaining that at the age of 29 he felt “if I continued it, I was really going to sabotage my whole life.” Currently, Bradley is single and living with his mother and 3-year-old daughter at his farmhouse. He was in a relationship with Irina Shayk till 2019 and has a three-year-old daughter.
Demi Lovato celebrated six years sober this past March 2018. The singer has also been bold and in her public transparency regarding her struggle with bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm, and substance abuse.
