“I tried plastic surgery and it didn’t work,” she said in the interview.
“It got me addicted to Vicodin. I’m 22 years sober now.”
“The current trend of fillers and procedures, and this obsession with filtering, and the things that we do to adjust our appearance on Zoom are wiping out generations of beauty. Once you mess with your face, you can’t get it back,” she continued.
She also spoke about her relationship with social media.
“I use social media to sell things and amplify things I care about. Period. The rest is cancer. I never read one comment. I believe I can do my job and have a private life. I believe in the separation of church and state. I believe that I do not owe anybody anything once I’ve done my work,” she said.
“I am by nature a super-friendly person, but I also have a very clear boundary of what is appropriate and inappropriate for me to share. There’s some remarkable good that has come from social media: I love the exposure to amazing people doing amazing things, to activism. The best example is Greta Thunberg. I’ve been inspired watching the movement she created. It’s also very dangerous. It’s like giving a chain saw to a toddler. We just don’t know the longitudinal effect, mentally, spiritually, and physically, on a generation of young people who are in agony because of social media, because of the comparisons to others. All of us who are old enough know that it’s all a lie. It’s a real danger to young people.”
She recently defended another actress amid a lawsuit.
