In a rare interview with Entertainment Weekly, “The Good Husband” star Sarah Michelle Gellar shared her personal and personal journey from her earliest days as a child to her current role on the CBS show.
“I have to admit, I am a very private person,” Gellar said.
“When I was younger, I used to lie to my mom and dad, and my father told me he would come back and be like, ‘Mom, I want to get rid of you.'”
Gellar, who is also an executive producer on the show, said she’s been a loyal and close friend to her family for more than 30 years.
“My parents always wanted me to be a good daughter, and I would do anything for them,” she said.
“The good thing is, I have a very loving, protective mom who loves me unconditionally,” Geller continued.
“So I think that has been the biggest thing for me.
She loves me and she’s the best mom in the world.”
Gellar also spoke about the time she was accused of rape on the set of the series “The Big Bang Theory” by co-star Adam Scott, whom she called “a wonderful, wonderful man.”
“I got a call the next day from Adam and he said, ‘You know, you have a reputation for being a rape apologist.
I was like, what is wrong with me?
I said, well, I was trying to get a drink and then I got raped,'” Gellar recalled.
“I was like [shrugs], ‘That’s the problem with the internet.’
I just said, I didn’t know anything about that.
It’s a terrible thing to have happen to you, and it’s a very sad thing to see someone else experience that.”
She didn’t believe it. “
She was like aghast.
She didn’t believe it.
She thought it was a joke.”
While Gellar has been vocal in her support for sexual assault victims in the wake of the Weinstein scandal, she said she has never felt pressured by producers to “give in” to a producer’s request to have sex with a young woman on the series.
“It’s so hard to do,” Gellars said.
“[When you] are in a situation like that, when you have to go through it, you’re not going to do anything that’s going to hurt her feelings.
It just doesn’t feel right.”
Geller has been on the television series for five seasons.
In her interview with EW, she also discussed her thoughts on her former co-stars “Breaking Bad” and “Breaking Man” creator Vince Gilligan.
“Garry is one of the funniest, funniest people you can meet.
He’s very kind, and he’s a really wonderful person.
I’ve been a huge fan of Gilligan’s work for a long time,” Gollard said.
Gellar said she loves being “Breaking Woman” as much as she loves working on the “Good Wife” spinoff.
“You can do what you love to do and you’ll never be bored,” she joked.
“My favorite part of the show is being on a show with people you don’t even know,” Gailersaid.
“And when they tell you you’re a Bad Wife, they really mean it.
And that’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”
Gellars appearance comes at a time when she has had a string of successful TV roles, including an Emmy nomination for her work on “The Mindy Project” in 2016 and a Golden Globe nomination for “Good People” in 2017.
Gellar, whose first TV series, “Witchcraft,” debuted on CBS in 2014, also starred in the upcoming comedy series “Sick in the Head” for Universal TV.
Geller is repped by CAA and Anonymous Content.
