EXCLUSIVE: Aaron Paul On Preparing For 'Smashed': 'I Drank A Lot'
Aaron Paul, 33, two-time Emmy winner for the acclaimed AMC show, Breaking Bad, is taking his award-winning acting to the silver screen in the upcoming Smashed, about a hard-partying couple whose relationship is tested when one of them opts for sobriety, directed by James Ponsoldt and also starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Octavia Spencer of The Help, and Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally of Parks and Recreation.
While many serious actors in such a serious role might wax philosophical about their preparation for the film, the up-front Paul gives it to us straight. "You know, I drank a lot," he told Uinterview exclusively, after a pause. "I did," he clarified. "I drank a lot more than I ever drank in my life .... I drank a lot and I filmed myself drinking and I watched a lot of people on YouTube wasted. I would just type in, "people wasted," and you could find the most incredible YouTube videos. It's very helpful."
On a more heartfelt note, however, Paul talks about his "incredible" costar, Winstead. Again, director Ponsoldt took his two lead actors out drinking before they did any shoots. "It created a very special bond between her and I, because we didn't know each other before shooting this film," Paul said. "So I'm very happy he did that."
