The ‘Killing Eve’ actress has finally reached a point where she’s stopped worrying too much about negative comments being written about her online and has taught herself not to think about them too much.
She said: “Within the past month, I feel like I’ve sussed it out. It took a while, but it got to a point where I noticed it was affecting my health, I think you forget how accessible we are when we have mobile phones.
“In my head, it was like there is a line of people outside my front door who have nasty things to say to me, and I’m saying, ‘Come on in! Please sit on my couch, tell me’.
“When I realised that was what I was doing, I knew I just had to stop and I haven’t done it since. It’s like, I don’t want these people in my house, I don’t want them in my head.”
The 27-year-old star has stopped worrying about what is written about her and whether or not people believe it.
She told Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine Porter: “A lot of people read things and they go, ‘Wow, she’s that, she’s this type of person’. And I’m like, OK, I can spend my life and my energy trying to convince people otherwise, or I can go, I know who I am, I know my truth and that’s good enough for me.”
And the blonde beauty – who is dating lacrosse player James Burke – is wary of welcoming intrusion into her loved ones lives because of her own fame.
She said: “It’s important for my family and having a boyfriend who isn’t in the public eye; it can be very strange and surreal. I’m very cautious of what I bring into my family’s life, it’s a safety thing.”
