Entertainment behind the scenes
Gina Gershon, speaking publicly for the first time about a Vanity Fair magazine article that implied she had an affair with former U.S. President Bill Clinton, has called the tale a wild fabrication.
“It was my day off and all of a sudden I read this thing. You know, it is such a crazy, outrageous lie,” Gerson said Monday on U.S. TV chat show “Live with Regis and Kelly.”
“I’ve met him three times, at events, at the White House or different places,” said Gershon, who has appeared in movies such as “Bound” and on TV hits such as “Ugly Betty.”
Last week, Vanity Fair published an article that said Clinton’s “aides have winced” at, among other things, ”recent high-end Hollywood dinner-party gossip that Clinton has been seen visiting with the actress Gina Gershon in California.” The statement was largely viewed as implying Clinton and Gershon may have had an affair while his wife, U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton, was campaigning for president.
