'Sex and the City's Kristin Davis Says She's A Recovering Alcoholic

'Sex and the City' star Kristin Davis' character, Charlotte, may be known for enjoying the occasional drink but the actress says she tries to stay as far away from alcohol as possible.

Davis tells 'Health' magazine in its latest issue: "I'm a recovering alcoholic. I've never hid it, but I've been sober the whole time I've been famous, so it wasn't like I had to go to rehab publicly."

The question came up when the interviewer asked how she managed to look 30 at 43, to which Kristin replied: "Thank you. I don't know. My mom looks great for her age, so I think genetics has a lot to do with it. Also, I don't drink, I don't smoke, and I love my Ahava sunscreen."

But she says her contrast to her character often confuses fans who like to offer her the Cosmopolitans that her character enjoys: "It's caused a lot of confusion out in the world. I get sent many a Cosmo! I never drink them. I believe alcoholism is a disease. I don't think you can mess with it. There was a time when people who didn't know me well would say, 'Couldn't you just have one glass of champagne?' And I would say, “No.” I'm doing well. I still have occasional bad days. Why risk it?"

When asked if she was like her character, who's somewhat obsessed with marrying and having children, Davis tells the mag: "Well, obviously not! If that were true, I'd be miserable right now. But I can relate to feeling the pressure society puts on a person. My family has never been focused on that for me. I'd love to have children, though. I'd also love to adopt a child—I think about it a lot."

"I'd still like to find a man and have a baby with him if that's possible," she adds. "I haven't given up."
