Kristin Davis of "Sex in the City" was addicted to alcohol for years before becoming a star and didn’t think she would live past 30.
“I know people who have abused alcohol and now they can have one [drink] and they’re fine and I respect that,” she told Marie Claire. “I’d love to have a glass of wine, but what if I have another, then another? It’s very hard to say a simple answer as to why. Alcoholism is a genetically predisposed disease and it does run in my family. I also think I felt like a misfit. I was in the South, everybody was blonde. I just didn’t feel like I fit in.”
