Pete Doherty: 'I shot up heroin on movie set'
Babyshambles star Pete Doherty has revealed that while on set filming scenes for his debut movie role he injected himself with heroin.
Speaking to The Guardian newspaper, the rocker explained that he was still hooked on drugs when he landed his first film job in director Sylvie Verheyde's big-screen adaptation of Alfred de Musset's classic novel, 'Confession Of A Child Of The Century'.
"It's poison but it's also medicine. When you're in that state, you can't function unless you have your fix... But I was so absorbed in the work, there wasn't a chance (to go to rehab)... I couldn't hide it from (Verheyde)."
"She didn't really care. It was just a question of how quickly I can find a vein and then let's get on with it."
Earlier this week, Doherty also opened up about his painful split from supermodel Kate Moss and confessed that she had set fire to his childhood teddy bear and even smashed one of his guitars over his head during a fit of emotional rage.
