Millions of women around the world adore the women of “Sex In The City.” So when we hear about their struggles in life we automatically relate to their issues. Kristen Davis (also known as Charlette) was featured on the cover of Shape Magazine. Get an inside look at the article here ….
Sex And The City star Kristin Davis has revealed how she turned to alcohol in her early 20s in a bid to boost her confidence.
The actress – who refers to herself as an alcoholic – admits that she relied on drink to overcome her shyness and make herself appear more outgoing.
She tells the new issue of Shape magazine, “Alcohol freed me. I was really shy and I didn’t know how to come out of my shell.
“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.”
Kristin adds that her problem with alcohol is in the past and she hasn’t touched a drop in years.
She says, “I don’t drink and I’ve never smoked. They are bad for your skin and health.”
In fact, Kristin now takes a much healthier approach to looking and feeling good.
“I went through phases when I said I can’t have this or I can’t have that,’ she recalls, “but now I don’t deprive myself.”
“I never let myself get too hungry. I make sure I eat every three hours or so, mostly protein, good carbs, veggies and salads.”
