“In that political structure ― all the non-truths, the bullshit, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on ― I feel like I could not exist…I would not be able to do it. It’s not a clean business. It would kill me.”, she told the magazine.

In the light of the #MeToo movement of which the 64-year-old is in the forefront, she opined,

“People talk about ‘these are such dark times,’ but what if we shift the paradigm? Because I see it differently”. “I see, ‘Isn’t this remarkable that we’re waking up?’ For years, women have endured craziness. This is what’s happening to people. They’re allowing themselves to not just become corroded, but to become hysterical. You’ve got to lean to the happiness.”
