Los Angeles: Actress Jennifer Hudson says she has never consumed alcohol or drugs in her life. This made it hard for her to play a heroin addict in a movie.

The 31-year-old, who is acting as a heroin addict in a new movie `The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete`, found it difficult to connect with the role, reports

"It terrified me to play that part because I had no reference point. I`m 31 and I`ve never, ever, ever had a drink or done a drug in my entire life," Manhattan magazine quoted Hudson as saying.

"I stick with Diet Coke and Crystal Light and water," she added.
