We spoke about it before we filmed: should we try heroin? Once we started doing research with some of the addicts--once we met those people--it felt really disrespectful even to think about that. But at first, I kinda had an attitude: I'd lost all this weight to play my character, and I felt that Kate Moss skinny glamour and had this romantic idea. Because heroin's the worst one--the big, bad one. So there's a mystique around it.
