Fiona Apple recently revealed that “one excruciating night” spent with directors Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson led to her giving up cocaine for good.
During an in-depth conversation with The New Yorker, Apple, 42, confessed she quit using the drug after spending the night at the “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood” filmmaker’s home with then-boyfriend Anderson, listening to the pair of cinefiles “brag” to one another.
“Every addict should just get locked in a private movie theatre with Q.T. and P.T.A. on coke, and they’ll never want to do it again,” she joked.
Apple went on to detail other vices she indulged in while dating the “Boogie Nights” director, including weed, ecstasy and plenty of alcohol. The pair met in 1997 and went on to become an “It” couple to the public. Privately, however, the romance was “painful and chaotic” for the Grammy-winner.
Anderson was hot-headed, according to the songwriter, throwing a chair across the room after attending the 1998 Academy Awards. Apple also claims he physically kicked her out of his car and would often say cruel things to her in public, but under his breath so that only she could hear.
She also specified that he was never physically abusive and that she, at times, could be a “little f–ker” herself.
The pair split in 2001. Anderson has since been in a longterm relationship with Maya Rudolph, with whom he shares four children.
