Dench, who was named Best Supporting Actress for Shakespeare in Love in 1998, did not publicly comment on the interview. However, a number of celebrities responded to the Mea Culpa.
“Interviews are so strange and really tricky” Andie MacDowell partially commented. “Some questions aren’t worth answering, but we don’t know until it’s too late.”
Emmy winner Camryn Manheim wrote: “I know that your interview has been misinterpreted and that you have great respect for Dame Judy Dench. Knowing what an elegant and gracious woman she is, I am sure that she understands your true heart.”
