What else can you tell us about acting?

Sometimes you hate it. So maybe you say, Yeah, I make faces for cash, I tell a few lies. And in a way that’s right. In a way it’s just a gig like any other job. Except it’s more unstable, maybe worse for your mental health. If you’re doing what you should be doing as an actor, you won’t be very emotionally stable. You are constantly manipulating your emotions, fucking with yourself, fucking with your self, opening drawers in your head that you don’t really want to open but you have to, to maintain access to them.

What drawers?

Family things. Childhood things. Fear and abandonment. Rage. You just feel stupid having this be a part of your job, and it fucks with you in bad ways. When you’re really flopping around in there [bitter laugh], you feel like an idiot for doing it. For going through it. It can make you miserable for three or four months. But you do it. You feel like an idiot, but you do it because it’s your fucking job.

You’re talking about What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, a movie that struck close to home. Gilbert, your character, was trapped in a working-class family, but he had infinite longings.

That’s one I haven’t seen, Gilbert Grape.

You still don’t want to?

No, no. That mixed-up family and him being responsible, those issues clung to me. Making that movie was a bad time. I was as deep in the soup as I could be.

According to the tabloids you were hurting because of your breakup with Winona Ryder.

That wasn’t really it. That’s what was written, but we hadn’t broken up yet, we were still up and down. It had more to do with me, with the difficulty of being inside my skin. I was doing what I could to numb that feeling, doing some in-depth poisoning.

What were your poisons?

Pretty much anything I could ingest. And I was soused, drinking heavily, really doing myself in. When it gets constant, when you’re going to sleep drunk, waking up and starting to drink again, that stuff will try to kill you.

Did you think your vices would actually kill you?

At one point I was living on coffee and cigarettes, no food, no sleep. I was sitting around with some pals when my heart started running at 200 beats a minute. That’s scary. You’re mentally trying to slow down your heart, but you can’t. It’s like being on a plane when the bottom drops out—you drop a couple thousand feet and one second turns into eternity. You really do get all those family pictures in your head. And you feel so totally fucking alone. I was thinking of my grandfather on my mom’s side, a great man I worshiped. His heart just exploded one day. When my heart started racing I hoped it was an anxiety attack, but when it went on for 45 minutes I knew it wasn’t anxiety, it was all the shit I’d done to my body. My friends got me to the hospital, where I got a shot—boom, a shot that basically stops your heart for a second. I could feel myself curling up, going fetal. Then it was over. I got to go home. Now, there’s an experience that’ll scare you into shape.
