Kate Bosworth has revealed that she didn't sleep much while filming Homefront as she felt it was important to look as dishevelled as possible to play her meth addicted character.

Speaking to Collider Bosworth explained, "I got very little sleep. The physicality was something that the role required. She's someone who's abusing herself every day and that starts to take a toll.

''Clearly meth is a very destructive substance, and it shows physically very quickly, and it's a quick demise. It was just a conversation about how rough we wanted her to look. It wasn't something that I thought twice about. It was something that was required.''

While Bosworth and director Gary Fleder wanted the character to look rough, they still wanted to keep an air of hope about her, "Gary, myself and the make-up artists wanted to make sure that she was far gone enough that there was a real danger to her physicality, and an edginess to her, and a discomfort, and constant agitation, but that she wasn't so far gone that there was not a point of no return.''

Homefront is set for release on December 6 and also stars James Franco, Jason Statham and Winona Ryder.
