Goofs
When Edie Sedgwick reads the paper about Billy's wedding, try to freeze the scene. If you read what the paper actually says, you will find out that, except for the first few lines that talk about the wedding, it also talks about some nonsense stuff that is copied and pasted all over the paper!

Edie Sedgwick's opening lines state that her "great-great-great-great uncle was a signer of the Declaration of Independence...". It was in fact her great-great-great uncle, William Ellery who was the signatory of the United States Declaration of Independence in 1776.

When Andy Warhol is on the phone with Brigid Berlin and he is looking at Edie Sedgwick's picture, we can see that his thumb nail is broken. But the next second, in the same scene, his nail is fine!

Q
Why is Hayden Christensen's character listed as "Musician" and no longer as Billy Quinn?
A
It is because Bob Dylan threatened to sue because it looked like it was his fault Edie died. That's what the trivia says anyway.
Q
What did Edie's brother say that he tasted until the day he died?
A
His father's ashes.
Q
What are the differences between the Theatrical Version and the Unrated Version?
A
For the home theatre market, an unrated version was released aside from the R-rated theatrical version. Most scenes which were re-inserted or alternately shifted, serve to specify character drawings and various aspects of the story which were only embedded in the theatrical version to some extent. However, there are also a few extensions with sexual contents and more explicit depictions of drug use. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
