Aaron Paul - Aaron Paul Draws On Meth-addict Ex's Experience For Breaking Bad

Actor Aaron Paul didn't have to dig too deep to play his meth-dealing character in hit TV series Breaking Bad - he once dated an addict.
Paul admits he was put off hard drugs of all kinds as he watched his ex struggle with her issues.
He tells the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, "It went from coke and then it escalated to meth. Meth is the one that grabbed, like, nails-deep into her soul and slowly just ripped it out. She was this beautiful being, turned to this hollow shell."
The actor insists he's against all drugs, except marijuana, which he uses as a painkiller - because he refuses to pop pills.
Paul, who owns a medical marijuana card, explains, "If I go to the dentist, I'll get an eighth. I am against pills. I don't even take Advil. I think pot 100 per cent should be legalised."
