"I never wanted to be called someone's girlfriend." Julia Fox on her romance with Kanye West

Julia Fox, in an interview with InStyle magazine, spoke about her dates with Kanye West, which made her famous, and admitted that her affair with the rapper, which lasted only a month, “left her with a sour taste in her mouth.” According to the 34-year-old actress, women in show business often become hostage to the image of a famous man's lover, but she wants to break this stereotype, so she will no longer date famous men.

"I never wanted to be known as just someone's girlfriend. I know I'm so much more than that. And I think that happens a lot to women in the industry," Julia said. "They're only as good as their partner; they can make a whole career out of just being some guy's lover. But either way, it becomes their personality."

According to the actress, she is above this and wants to break this stereotype. "I want to be self-sufficient and not need the support of a man. I've done this for years. I'm fine. I'm established as a person and I want to continue to establish myself. And maybe one day I'll even be taken seriously."

Fox noted that she never Googles herself. "The thought of Googling myself gives me a lot of anxiety because it will turn out to be some kind of nonsense. What you don't know can't hurt you. Ignorance is bliss. I don't know what's going on out there ".

Julia Fox calls working in the entertainment industry tedious, but explains why she continues to work there. "I have to make the most of the moment. I didn't come all this way to ruin everything," she says. "I don't know, I can't explain it. But I need to prove myself because I feel like I'm always I'm surrounded by naysayers who underestimate me or don't take me seriously. Sometimes I just want to jump out and say, “I'm here and I'm not leaving.”

An affair with Kanye West attracted press attention to Julia, which she then reinforced with her shocking appearances. She herself admitted that because of the rapper’s reputation, she lost some contracts. Some deals also fell through after their split was revealed (Julia said it was influenced by his ex-wife Kim Kardashian), as many perceived her solely through their relationship. She also claimed Kanye used her to annoy his ex-wife and said she felt like his puppet.
