ERIN BROCKOVICH star Aaron Eckhart hasn't touched alcohol since 2003, after beginning an early drinking career at the tender age of 14.

The Mormon actor admits he started boozing during his teen years in California, but took the decision to quit alcohol forever as his film career began to take off.

He tells gossip website PageSix.com, "I started drinking when I was 14, so I feel like I had my fill.

"I used hypnosis to quit and I haven't had a drink in two and a half years. Of course, sometimes I cluck like a chicken involuntarily."
