I’m on the point where I am like, ‘You know what, let’s put it out there, and if people don’t like it, well, too bad for them.’”
In a recent interview with Parade magazine, she also added; “It can be really taxing psychologically for me to think about it, especially in the summer months when I’m thinking about what I’m going to wear to hide it from the camera. But I’m done. I’m over it.”
“This is a career where you can sometimes be judged as much by how you look as by what you say. I hate it but that’s the truth. When I was younger, I was reticent to talk about — and be out about — my leg. I wanted to rise in my career being me and not being judged by something like a birthmark. At 40, I want to be more open about it.”
