Screen beauty Asia Argento is still traumatised by the troubled character SARAH she played in 2004 movie THE HEART IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS.

The 29-year-old actress failed to separate herself from her alter-ego - and found herself emotionally and physically weakened by the harrowing experience.

She says, "I lived with this character for two years, completely absorbed by her.

"I did things to my body and soul - bad things - and I don't yet have my strength back. Sarah f**ked with me."
