Edie Falco has been all over the place lately. When she’s not fighting puppy mills, she’s pretending to be former First Lady Hillary Clinton in AMC’s American Crime Story: Impeachment. Playing one of the most controversial public figures in the United States probably comes with some drawbacks.

That’s why Edie says she doesn’t care to hear the former Senator’s opinion of her performance in the dramatized tale of President Clinton‘s affair and impeachment. The Sopranos star appeared on The View today and discussed the tricky role.

”I so don’t want to know, and I know someone is going to tell me someplace along the line. It is my sincere hope that she has better things to do.” 

Edie specifically told series creator Ryan Murphy that she didn’t want her portrayal to be a hit job on Clinton. She said that she respects the former Democratic nominee for President. She said she admired Clinton’s desire to stay with her Presidential beau even after the affair with Monica Lewinsky rocked the nation.

“Impeachment” is the third installment in the American Crime Story series. The first season had an all-star ensemble cast and revolved around the O.J. Simpson murder trial. Season two was about the killing of fashion icon Gianni Versace.

In addition to her role as Mrs. Clinton, Edie Falco has two upcoming Avatar sequels. She’s also an accomplished stage actor. She most recently performed in an off-Broadway play called The True in 2018.
