Monica Lewinsky is opening up about her relationship with Bill Clinton while posing in a new blue dress in the March issue of Vanity Fair.

The former White House intern, 44, looks back at the affair with her much older and married boss through the lens of the #MeToo movement, writing in an essay for the magazine that while she may not qualify as a victim there is no denying that Clinton was a sexual predator.

She goes on to say that Chelsea and Hillary Clinton were examples of ‘grit and grace’ during that difficult time, while she was forced to remain silent ‘due to legal quarantine’ as Kenneth Starr forced even her own mother to testify against her in court.

Lewinsky reveals early in the essay that she never actually met Starr during the investigation, with their first run-in coming just two months ago on Christmas Eve when she was out to dinner with her family.

She describes him as ‘creepy,’ and says his constant touching left her feeling ‘uncomfortable’ after she randomly ran into the special prosecutor while out to dinner with her family in New York City.

Lewinsky was just being seated at the restaurant when she noticed Starr, who was leaving the establishment with his group.

‘Ken Starr asked me several times if I was “doing O.K.” A stranger might have surmised from his tone that he had actually worried about me over the years,’ says Lewinsky, noting that this was the same man who made her life ‘a living hell.’

‘His demeanor, almost pastoral, was somewhere between avuncular and creepy. He kept touching my arm and elbow, which made me uncomfortable.’

Lewinsky writes that she was a bit ‘thrown’ but eventually mustered up the courage to say what she had waited 20 years to say to Starr.

‘Though I wish I had made different choices back then, I wish that you and your office had made different choices, too,’ recalls Lewinsky of her remarks that night.

Starr replied by telling her it was ‘unfortunate’ before the two went their separate ways.
