Andra Day Reveals Past Struggles With Porn & Sex Addiction: ‘I’m Definitely In a Healthier Place’

As it turns out, that choice was intentional for a very personal reason. “I didn’t want any element of sexualization. I had come out of something in my own life — dealing with porn addiction, sex addiction,” she said. “I’m being very, very candid with you because I’m not the only one. But I knew I wanted all of that very much gone.”

Now that she’s lived through the intense period of playing Holiday and running the awards season gauntlet, Day said she’s developed very different ideas about beauty and sexuality. “I feel now, after playing Billie, that I’m honoring her, and the strength that is femininity,” she said. “I’m definitely in a healthier place to enjoy that because I’m outside of the addiction, if you will. So, yeah, it’s been really fun, because it’s been very new for me.”

The interview also finds Day talking about her early years, the flood of scripts landing on her doorstep now, feeling beautiful under the intense glare of the stage lights and the infamous moment when Regina King crashed Day’s Access Hollywood interview after the singer’s Globe win.

“I didn’t even know she was in the hotel,” Day said of the acclaimed actress-turned-director. “I was so grateful for how excited she was, and how personal it was to her. But I was also just shocked as a fan. I was like, ‘That is Regina F—ing King!'”
