Gwyneth Paltrow turned to Robert Downey, Jr. for advice
HollywoodNews.com: As Gwyneth Paltrow prepared to play an alcoholic in ‘Country Strong,’ she turned to her good friend Robert Downey, Jr. to understand the addiction.
Paltrow admits that she couldn’t relate to getting drunk and ruining lives all while waking up the next day and pretending everything was fine, states The Huffington Post (via Reuters). So, in order to understand that behavior, she looked to Downey to explain it since he had his own problems with addiction.
“He was really articulate about addiction and the psychology behind it,” Paltrow says about him being able to help her better understand her character.
