When asked if it was true that she didn't take showers: "It`s actually, honestly true. And not because of the shooting of it. It was the seeing of it. It never dawned on me how truly vulnerable we are. But that`s what he did. A shower. A bird. All these things that are absolutely ordinary, he made extraordinary."
