Well, it says something that they compared me, but it’s very true. I wore only designer clothes at that time and I think that was true of Jackie. I never had a Michelle Obama desire; it was not a part of our culture to aspire to Wal-Mart. We were different people then, we were very much about luxury and glamour. I understand completely how the culture has changed to produce this incredible young woman and her husband, the President of the United States and his wife. But, that was not what the culture was when “Claudine” was being fashioned into a film.
