Hale, 33, has spoken about her sobriety journey before. While discussing her decision to stop drinking in 2017, the Truth or Dare alum talked to Byrdie about the Hollywood party scene and how she had "no interest" in being a part of it anymore.

"Becoming a part of this popular show…everyone just says yes to you," she told the outlet at the time, "so you get away with a lot, and then you make mistakes."

And Hale noted she wanted to focus on other things. "I'm just always trying to surround myself with better people," she also shared at another point in the interview, "and be the best version of myself possible."
