Sarah Michelle Gellar: “In this world where victims are blamed and humiliated, I prefer to keep my stories to myself.”

I come with 40 years of experience. Some good, some bad, some in between. It was really difficult. There were no big female roles when I started. It was the role of the girlfriend or wife. That’s why Buffy was so spectacular, because she really had something to do, and then there was Remember… last summer, where it was the women who were doing it. It was a new turn of events. That’s what it was on the script side, but there’s another one, that of being a young girl in the business“, explained Sarah Michelle Gellar. And to add: “Growing up in New York, I had a bit of street sense, which helps. But no, it wasn’t easy. I could have shared my share of experiences, but I chose not to. I failed to tell my stories, emotionally. Nevertheless, I have seen people do it and it has impressed me. But in this world where people are torn apart, and victims are blamed and humiliated, I prefer to keep my stories to myself.“At 45, the actress says she doesn’t want”for nothing in the world to be 17 again“.
