The Uncut Gems star remembered thinking in the beginning that her sparks with the rapper “could be something real.”
“I really understood him on a visceral level,” Julia shared. When it came to his ex, Kim Kardashian, the actress explained that she “thought ultimately I’d be helping a precarious situation.”
“But I learned very quickly that I was being weaponized,” she said. “I just felt like his little puppet.”
The author does touch on her relationship with Kanye “lightly” in her book, but noted, “I’m not signing a f-cking NDA just on principle. I never have, and I never will. Unless it’s a professional opportunity, then sure.”
Julia pointed out that their romance negatively impacted her career. “[I] know for a fact I’ve been up for certain things and couldn’t do it because of dating Kanye,” she told the newspaper. “It’s kind of wild.”
She reflected, “It really wasn’t that big of a deal, but other people made it such a big deal.”
Julia also recently shared details about their sex life.
