Actress JAMIE LEE CURTIS once believed she was becoming an alcoholic.
She is married to actor CHRISTOPHER GUEST and is the daughter of Hollywood legends TONY CURTIS and JANET LEIGH. She admits that she feared her casual drinking "was becoming important ... I literally woke up one day and thought, 'OK, I think I better not do this anymore.'"
Curtis says being sober has vastly improved her relationship with her daughter: "Did we have a fight because of those two glasses of wine at dinner, or whatever?"
As for speaking out about it now, Curtis says, "I don't want to live with secrets. I want to live an open, happy life ...Sobriety is a huge blessing. I'm proud to be able to say that in front of my daughter. I'm thrilled."
