People Reports: The Uncut Gems actress, 32, spoke about the criticism she’s received after the worldwide romance she had with the Donda musician, 44, in an interview with The New York Times published Thursday.

“It’s not real,” said Fox. “It’s only happening on the internet. I’m not actively engaging with it. I don’t feel it. I’m still 1,000 percent me. Nothing’s changed, except, I will say, having been around Kanye was like a crash course on how to be famous.”

The pair met in Miami on New Year’s Eve, and on Valentine’s Day, a rep for Fox confirmed to PEOPLE in a statement, “Julia and Kanye remain good friends and collaborators but they are no longer together.”

Suggesting their busy schedules played a factor in their breakup (after spending about 15 days together), Fox said, “I tried my best to make it work. I already had a jam-packed life. How do I fit this really big personality into this already full life? It just wasn’t sustainable. I lost like 15 lbs. in that month.”

When asked if they were “exclusive,” Fox said, “I don’t think so,” before denying they dated for attention. “I mean, there were definitely elements of it that were real.”

The star also brushed off claims she interviewed to be West’s girlfriend as “ridiculous,” noting that she never signed a nondisclosure agreement.

As for whether she and West were officially “boyfriend” and “girlfriend,” Fox clarified, “I don’t think those words ever came out of my mouth, actually. It definitely felt like I was his girlfriend. But it also felt like I was being cast in the role of his girlfriend — and he was casting me. He was the orchestrator of it all. It really did feel like a movie.”

Despite parting ways with West, or as she calls him “the ultimate stunt queen,” Fox said she’s not worried West will expose the specifics of their romance.

“I don’t think that he would want to open that door with me,” she said. “If you come for me, I’m going to come for you. And I’m really good at coming for people. I just go straight for the jugular. I don’t think he would be dumb enough to do that.”

Instead, Fox, who said she met West when she was “ready to re-enter society” after welcoming son Valentino in 2020, saluted him for the “priceless exposure” he gave her, specifically in the fashion industry.

“Believe it or not, Kanye’s not the most interesting thing that’s ever happened to me.”

Kissy's Thoughts

For some reason, I have a really big pet peeve about lack of gratitude. Maybe I’m a bit too appreciative of other humans.

As I read this interview I disliked some of the things she said about him.

The Facts:

  • Kanye increased Julia’s brand visibility by millions of dollars at a minimum.
  • Kanye increased Julia’s MINDSET by millions of dollars, as she now has an improved gameplan on being a celebrity.
  • Kanye could’ve chose ANY woman to date, and give great results to in branding.

Julia is no doubt a Goddess in her own right, and she had to have the magic and conversation to keep Kanye’s interests for those 15-Days where he would be so taken with her to show her off to the world the way he did.

But Kanye would still be Kanye without Jullia. Julia on the other hand would still be at her same former level. Kayne leveled her up.

To me, that should render some form of gratitude, to not say some of the things she said about Kayne in the interview. Perhaps it’s lack of media training but some of those questions could be avoided.

Then again, most arrogant men don’t have much appreciation for women who actually appreciate them.. So I guess it evens out. 🤷🏼‍♀️

It’s the difference between being a PICK ME and being a woman in power who chooses the man and he ends up THINKING he picked her.

Goddess Time:  THINK of your past 2 relationships.  Did you pick him or did he pick you?  What do you need to do to pick better, so that you get better results?  WHY did you pick him?
