Julianna Margulies Explains How She Overcomes Fame's Negative Side
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?”
