The iconic actress and L’OFFICIEL March 2021 digital coverstar speaks about her new book, The Beauty of Living Twice, in which she details her life after a near-death experience, the struggles of her upbringing, and inspirations today.
On writing and her new book: “Writing is such a singular, solitary journey and that is hard for everyone else to grasp. When you reveal yourself to the rest of the world, you feel like a vampire that has been stuck in a box for 200 years, coming out saying ‘Sunlight!'”
On the COVID-19 pandemic sparking the same outrage in her that the AIDS crisis did: “It was like seeing the AIDS crisis in high-speed. It had the same disenfranchisement, denial, and lies.”
