He was very thin, almost emaciated, subsisted on martinis and cigarettes.

He was immersed. But it was okay because the character was like that. He never ate,” commented the artist, who did not hide the negative side of his work method. “You become a bit competitive with yourself, it’s not healthy. I don’t recommend it,” she acknowledged.
