Liquor-Free and Living in Luxury: Rich People Who Never Drink
If you’re following The Life Elite, you know that living in luxury means more of everything: more money, more cars, more gadgets and more fancy hotels. For many, this also means more alcohol.
We’re all familiar with the brave celebrities who have conquered addiction, but there are those out there who simply have no taste for liquor. They’re sober because it never occurred to them not to be. Here are five rich people from all walks of wealthy society who never drink.
Actress Blake Lively
The American actress has said that she’s never had drugs and doesn’t drink, telling Allure magazine: “It’s just something that I genuinely don’t have a desire for.”
Prince Aga Khan IV
The British business magnate and racehorse breeder is devout Muslim. He has said that “[T]he thing that separates man from the animals is his power of thought. Anything that impedes this process is wrong… I have never touched alcohol.”
Billionaire James Stunt
The British billionaire, mining tycoon and keen collector (who didn’t even have champagne at his multi-million dollar wedding to Formula One heiress Petra Ecclestone) has said: “I can’t understand how people can enjoy drinking eight pints of any liquid.”
Mogul Donald Trump
Despite selling Trump vodka, the famous mogul does not drink, having told Forbes: “I tell people, ‘What are you drinking for?’ And they don’t even understand what I’m saying.” He attributes his aversion to his brother who passed away from alcoholism.
Athlete Ana Ivanovic
The Serbian tennis player has the most viewed website of any female athlete. The 26-year-old Ivanovic has said she’s had alcohol but just isn’t a fan. “I’m a real party pooper.”
