“I was a little surprised that people were so shocked she would undertake that transaction. She’s done other things — she’s slept with other people before, she’s a sexually confident person, she knows what she’s doing, and this was an opportunity for her to set herself up for the rest of her life. She’s probably undertaken transactions like that for less. I don’t think it was necessarily Roger’s place; if she’s negotiated terms to her satisfaction, then good for her. I think they understand each other, they probably love each other, but it doesn’t mean they have to be together. And from a dramatic standpoint, it might be satisfying for a minute but I don’t think in the long-term — then what do you do? Where do they go? I don’t know. I’m not the one telling the story.”
