Ray Winstone - Ray Winstone Quits Booze
Ray Winstone has quit partying when he shoots movies because his on-set hangovers became unbearable.
The Departed star Winstone loved indulging in late-night drinking sessions during filming when he was a young man, but he struggles to cope with the after-effects as he ages.
And his hangovers have become so bad, the 54 year old has vowed to avoid alcohol whenever he's working.
He tells TV Times magazine, "There was too much boozing when I was younger. In the old days, I'd work in the day, drink into the small hours and then start all over again the next morning.
"I had to give that up in the end. I didn't touch a drop for the entire shoot of (2010 movie) Tracker. I needed to keep my head clear. It took me a long time to learn discipline."
