On being immensely moved by the momentum of #MeToo: “This is a transitional period, and it’s just so painful. You really have to have a plan for truth and reconciliation,” she says. “We can’t put every man over 30 in jail. We have to love our brothers and fathers and come to an understanding about how we got here and who we are going to be together.”
On helping other fellow stars and being a role model: “I don’t feel that I am a spokesperson for anything. It’s just not my personality. I do serve – I just serve in a different way. I do reach out sometimes to women in the industry. And men, too, who I can see would benefit from the experience I have had about surviving intact,” she says, her voice cracking slightly. “If there’s anything that I have to be a role model about, it is prioritizing my own self-worth and psychological health above all. And if not, I don’t know where I would be today. I mean, there is a carpet of ex-child actors who did not make it.”
