Zap2It reports that during an appearance on Good Morning America, Jennifer Hudston talked about playing a heroin addict (named Gloria) in The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, which was produced by Alicia Keys.
She previously told Manhattan magazine that she had a hard time connecting to the character: "I had no reference point. I'm 31 and I've never, ever, ever had a drink or done a drug in my entire life."
She then said on GMA that she spent a lot of time talking to an addict named Lisa and channeled that into her performance. She added: "If I don't have anything to connect from, why don't I find someone to connect to."
