John Cusack not only had to go to a dark place to portray Edgar Allen Poe in "The Raven," he also had to drop some weight to portray the author.
"I thought it would be fun [to drop 25 pounds for the role]. It wasn't fun not eating," Cusack told OnTheRedCarpet.com co-host Rachel Smith at the film's Hollywood premiere. "It wasn't that fun actually, but I thought that. He was a world famous writer but they didn't have copyrights, so he was dirt poor actually. He was always kind of living hand to mouth and had financial troubles all his life and he was an alcoholic, so I thought that would be the best look - to look kind of emaciated and real wiry. It was a fun time. I put myself into everything I do, so I put myself all-in on this one."
