1. State who the famous person is
The famous person I chose is Sienna Miller.
2. Explain why this person is /was famous.
She is famous because she is a British actress, model, and a fashion designer. Moreover, according to google, she had played roles in Layer Cake, Alfie, Factory Girl, The Edge of Love, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Also, she became really renown for dating Jude Law in which she had cheated on.
3. State what drugs they are/were addicted too (tell me the REAL name of the drugs, many articles you read may only identify the slang name of the drug, but you should be able to identify the real drug names)
The drugs she was addicted to was magic mushrooms, also known as Psilocybin Mushrooms. Some slang names are shrooms, pizza topping, and cogumelos mágicos in Portuguese. Moving on, she had discussed that she loved unusual hallucinogenic drugs, and if she had to choose one, it would be magic mushrooms. "I mean, I still love a waterfall or the odd hallucinogenic drug. I liked mushrooms, which were legal until a year or so ago. If I had a drug of choice, it would be magic mushrooms." (The Guardian, 2007). Not only that, but she had stated that she tried morphine to simulate what heroin would feel like. Yet, Miller didn’t acknowledge how frequently she was doing the drugs.
4. Describe how this person's reputation/health/career change because of the drug use. (This person may have even died of the drug use).
According to research, thankfully, not much has drugs affected her health. Meaning that of course, she didn’t die of it either. When I read some articles, as mentioned before, she had just stated that she loved the experience, and that pretty much all that was mentioned. What’s funny is that she later said that she’d never raise a family in Hollywood to stay away from the drug scene. “It’s the most medicated place, there’s a whole massive market for really addictive drugs.”
5. When a famous person uses drugs, how do you think this can influence, or affect teens that admire this famous person?
In my opinion, a lot of teens think of their famous person their models, or examples of how to be and become. Due to that, once the famous person you admire uses drugs, they might feel really sad, and surprised that their role model used it. Yet, some might move on and just think that she/he wasn't the person you were thinking they were (like what I do). But sometimes, some people might be so into them, that they agree about their use of drugs. Meaning that THEY might use the drug too later in the future. Because of these reasons, I feel that teenagers shouldn't fully rely on the famous people. These days, too many people (teens) rely on how the society wants them to look like, or do. All in all, famous people using drugs can definitely influence or affect us.
