She added that she had not yet been in touch with Spacey, and that “he’ll reach out when he’s ready, I’m sure. I think that’s the way it should go."
She also said that she felt 'sorry' for Spacey, who is facing a number of sexual assault cases in the UK and US.

Why does our private life have to be public? I hate that part of this industry. It’s so invasive. I believe everyone’s personal life should be personal. Positive, negative, neutral, whatever – I don’t believe it should be anybody’s business. But I’m not talking about this [#MeToo] movement. I’m talking about media. The exposure. It’s an awful feeling. A stranger deciding they know who you are and they are going to put that in a…I mean, it’s criminal, it really is.”
