Frankie Muniz: Never Tasted Alcohol, No Reason to.

Frankie Muniz: Never Tasted Alcohol, No Reason to: Frankie Muniz serves as a testament that not everyone embraces drinking. In a recent episode of the “Breakdown” podcast, the 38-year-old former child star disclosed that he has never consumed alcohol.

The “Malcolm in the Middle” star, now a professional race car driver, shared with host Mayim Bialik that he is the sole member of his family who abstains from alcohol. Despite experiencing a mini-stroke in 2012 and grappling with memory loss, Muniz clarified that there isn’t a profound reason behind his choice not to drink. “I tried to figure out why I didn’t because I don’t have a reason. It wasn’t, like, a religion,” Muniz expressed. “In my mind, I felt like I had made it so long without it, I was like, ‘Well, I’m not going to start now,’ even though I was only 18.”

He added that throughout his life, people have found it challenging to comprehend his sobriety.

“I was always kind of like, ‘It’s so weird that people have such a strong reaction to me not drinking. Like, who cares? I don’t care what you do. Why do you care so much about me?’ I don’t know if I made a conscious decision, but it just stuck with me that I was never gonna drink or do anything,” Muniz expressed.

“But now I’m 38, and I think I’m going to start tonight,” he quipped.
