In a new interview with StylistWilson said, “The reason I didn’t go Affair is that I haven’t worked on how to discuss it. There is a lot of noise and anger around it and it is really up to me to choose how I will discuss my life and my experiences.
“It’s important to say I called.” I had a voice. I stood for myself. The situation has arisen Affair where things didn’t feel good, and I dealt with them and managed to protect myself. “
She continued, “It was before #MeToo and Harvey Weinstein – and yet my instincts were very clear and strong about what I felt bad about, what was going on, and what I didn’t feel safe about.”
