“It’s hard to have nothing that’s yours. And when you are a person who lives in the public eye, everybody wants to pick over everything and that can be really tricky,” Sophia shared with Entertainment Tonight.

“And, I also grew up in the early aughts when girls were raked over the coals for any choices that they made. And I just was like, ‘I don’t think I like this,’” she continued. “I didn’t like having my private life lied about. There were times where someone would send through an article and be like, ‘Well, supposedly you’re dating this guy.’ And I was like, ‘I mean, I would. Who is he?’ Like, what is going on here?”

Sophia went on to explain how she wanted to shift the focus on her personal life into topics she’s passionate about, like women’s rights.

“I don’t know, just eventually it bothered me, that rather than doing what we’ve done, talking about work, substance, education, interview shows, what we believe in, what’s going on with women’s rights,” Sophia explained. “It would be, ‘What are you wearing? And how’s your boyfriend?,’ and it’s like, ‘What does that have to do with anything about my work, my life?’”

She added, “I really think the kind of gamification of people’s private intimacy is just creepy to me. So I don’t really hide what’s going on in my life, but I don’t flaunt it.”

Sophia‘s comments come after she made a very rare appearance with boyfriend Grant Hughes at the False Positive premiere.
