10 Things You Didn't Know About Eliza Dushku

5. She Started Smoking For A Role

There's been plenty of reports of various actors getting into character 24-7 while they're preparing for a movie, and Dushku once detailed how she got hooked on cigarettes after taking the habit up for one of her movies. Back in 2002, she told Arena: "I'm on the wagon these days. If I have any sort of drink I want to smoke, the two seem to go hand in hand. I just turned 21 and everyone's going 'Come on, we're all going out!' and I'm like 'As a matter of fact, I'm not really into that anymore. "I started smoking for a role in a movie when I was 15 and I had a problem kicking it after the movie. It was just me trying to be a grown-up. I was puffing away thinking I was so cool. But I've decided to clean myself up and get into shape. I'm doing my best not to cheat and have a sly one."
