When I left my husband, there was no work and no money. And so my new boyfriend and I were forced to move to an area of Fort Greene [Brooklyn, NY] that was very drug infested, and it was very hard. I got recognized a lot on the streets. They thought we had something that we didn't. I'd get a lot of comments like: 'Why are you living here? You're a star.' And I thought, 'Movie stars got to pay their rent, too.'
