Monica Lewinsky is one of the producers of the upcoming series “Impeachment: American Crime Story”. But that doesn’t mean she sugarcoated the way she was portrayed.
Originally, the writer left out a scene where Monica flashed her thong to Bill Clinton, because she didn’t want to “re-traumatize” Monica. But Monica made her put it back in.
She says, “I’m incredibly experienced in understanding how people see this story. So, ultimately, I felt two things: One was that I shouldn’t get a pass because I’m a producer; and two, that it was unfair to the team and to the project because it would leave everybody vulnerable.”
“Impeachment” debuts on September 7th on FX, starring Beanie Feldstein as Monica, Clive Owen as Bill, Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton, and Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp.
