Q. Is it true that Bette Midler is one of Hollywood‘s famous reformed alkies?

A. “No,” says the ., who no longer drinks alcoholic beverages. “I just didn’t have a tolerance for it.
I’m an extremely cheap drunk and a vocal one. 1 didn’t get enough out of it. It was too high a price to pay … My body couldn’t take it anymore, couldn’t take the hangovers. When 1 get a hangover, that pit opens up and 1 might as well just kill myself right then and there. There’s no reason to go on. I’m utterly worthless — that’s how it affects me … In the early days, I used to smoke dope and drink stingers before I worked.”
