Liv Tyler’s Acting Secret? A Different Perfume For Each Role

“I always wear a different smell for every character. My sense of smell has such a keen emotional connection for me. It’s funny, but I can’t wear my own normal perfume when I’m playing a character.”

Liv Tyler talks to the NY Daily News about the unique technique she uses to get into a character’s skin. She says this helped tremendously with her newest role in “The Ledge,” in which she plays a former addict who marries an evangelical guy, and has an affair with the neighbor he is currently trying to save. But wait—what scent goes with that? [NY Daily News]

After the jump, the great advice Steven Tyler gave Liv the first time they met.

“I remember my first conversation with my dad. He asked me if I wanted to order a Shirley Temple, and then he told me to cross my legs because I was sitting in a chair wearing a skirt and a big sweatshirt. We were in Boston, at a rock concert. I remember that vividly. And to this day, even when I get out of a town car and there’s paparazzi, my knees are locked together!”

Good call, Steven. Good call. If only Britney Spears and Paris Hilton had been in earshot.
