Julianna Margulies Explains How She Overcomes Fame's Negative Side

Julianna Margulies bares her back for a feature in Net-a-Porter’s weekly digital fashion magazine The Edit, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 49-year-old actress had to share:

On why she’d never become a politician: “I would never and could never be a politician. But God, it’s fun to play one. I have to say things that I personally disagree with, but you have to look at things from two sides. I’ll get emotional at the snap of a finger, but my husband [who is a lawyer] will read the other argument. He’s very graceful at having an opinion, rather than having a gut reaction.”

On dealing with the negative side of fame: “I never think of myself as a famous person. I think of myself as a working actor who happens to be in a show that everyone watches [nine million viewers tuned in for the Season 6 finale]… I can’t control other people’s opinions of me; all I can control is my reaction to it. Someone in Idaho may hate me, but I don’t have to know about it!”

On the cult online following for The Good Wife: “I don’t read any of it – ‘Did I wear the right dress, did I not?’ – because it’s not going to help me as a human. It will only make me feel bad … or good. And if I believe the good, do I believe the bad?”

    She has a very healthy attitude towards her popularity and comes across as a really nice and down-to-earth person.
    I’ve always liked her, ever since the ER days.

    < I think one of the reasons most people do not lose weight is because they do not have fun with it, as mentioned, you need to follow your passion and go within before trying to change a number. I go over why this is so important on a blog post about why the NUMBER doesn't matter. http://Watch Here/

    If she was a politician, she would have to answer about what went bad with Archie Panjabi.
    An entire staff of PR could not prevent that.

    She looks stunning! Love her!
