Paula Jones, who sued the former president bill clinton for sexual assault and the start of her 1998 impeachment trial, destroying how she is portrayed in the new FX series, “American Crime Story: Impeachment.”
Jones is portrayed in the play by Annaleigh Ashford, but the real Jones says that the portrayal is no closer to reality.
“Most of it was wrong. It was almost cartoonish-y.” Jones told “Inside Edition.”
One thing that particularly bothered her: The show suggests that she and her husband dropped the allegation that Clinton proposed to her in exchange for a film or TV deal and exposed her gender in 1991, when He was the governor of Arkansas.
“This is far from the truth,” she said.
Jones is also upset that the producers did not reach out to him before filming the show.
“How can they portray someone correctly if they don’t even call them that?” He asked.
In comparison, Monica Lewinsky, played by Benny Feldstein on the show, served as a producer on the series and Script notes for scenes offered Illustration of real life events.
Jones sued Clinton in 1994, and her lawyers learned of Clinton’s affair with Lewinsky during the preparation of the case.
Clinton eventually agreed to settle Jones’ lawsuit for $850,000, but said she didn’t see much.
“My lawyers got all the money, hope they’re happy,” she said.
During the interview, which can be viewed below, Jones shrugged off the suggestion that she was one of The silent founder of the #MeToo movement.
“I really have nothing to do with the #MeToo movement. Actually, they have nothing to do with me. I am alone here,” she said.
