How did Gossip Girl star Michelle Trachtenberg (Georgina) get into character for her new role in pal Topher Grace’s film Take Me Home Tonight? By researching. Though it wasn’t as easy as you think.

"I play a goth stoner chick and I don't know anything about the weed," Michelle told Us Weekly. "Really, I know nothing about it. So I had to do a little research."

What does that mean? "I was talking with my friends, who are apparently a bunch of f--king stoners," she said.

Trachtenberg is on the cover of Maxim this month, and that entailed a different kind of research. "I stopped eating," she laughed. "No, I ate a lot. My favorite foods are bread and cheese, so I basically just limited eating those things from fives times a day to about twice a week. But only for 10 days."
