“When you’ve had a nine-year period of not drinking and then decide to start doing it, obviously, rightly so, my mom is going to be worried,” McSweeney said.
“For my mom, when she heard I’m drinking again, it’s just like a trigger to her,” she said. “I definitely think that my mom still views me as that wild teenager. It’s very hard for her to accept me as a 37-year-old woman who’s got her s— together.”
However, McSweeney told her costars she felt like she was a long way from her dangerous days. “I would never go to that deep, dark place again,” she said.
