Hillary Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton have teamed up with Apple TV+ to produce Gutsy, an eight-episode documentary series based on the New York Times bestseller The Book of Gutsy Women.
The pair spoke to CNN this week about the series and the heir’s own courageous moment.
Hillary Clinton said, “In my personal life, as I said before, it was a really courageous and difficult decision to stay married.”It took a lot of prayer, thought and counseling. I’m so glad I did. I don’t regret it, but it was brave because everyone in the world had an opinion.”
“Publicly, I am running for president,” she added. “So it was like riding the best tight rope with no net. [woman] It had never been done before and was full of all kinds of unprecedented challenges and problems. But I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to do so. ”
Chelsea Clinton, who grew up under a great deal of scrutiny when her father, Bill Clinton, was president from 1993 to 2001, said the most courageous thing she ever did was “lead my life.” to do,” he said.
“I was a celebrity from the moment I was born,” said Clinton, now 42 and a mother of three. From an early age, I realized that people had opinions about what I should do and what I should do.”
The harsh judgment and scrutiny that many women face is a big part of the series as the mother-daughter duo travels the world and talks about the lives, careers and thoughts of famous and not-so-famous women. increase.
The first episode deals with women and humor. Chelsea Clinton loved her jokes and grew up with a complicated relationship with comedy, thanks to being satirized on shows like ‘SNL’ during her childhood.
Another episode involves rapper Megan Thee Stallion, and the story turns to haters.
Chelsea Clinton told CNN she was inspired by the way rappers don’t let haters stop their joy. “I don’t know,” she often recalls.
“Comments about both their content and their attitudes, often with cruelty and gall, are about them, not about me,” said the young Clinton. Rather, it is a reflection on them.”
Hillary Clinton learned early in her public life that she should “take criticism seriously, but not personally.”
“If anyone makes a valid case, I should learn from it,” she said. .”
So it was important for the Clintons to highlight the stories of notable women in our time, as well as some of the historical figures in their books.
Hillary Clinton believes viewers will be inspired by the new series.
“One of the things we want in this series is that people who are probably depressed or suffering from criticism or worried, whether it’s from Megan Thee Stallion or from Chelsea and me. Well, I think it’s about finding a way to deal with it,” she said.
“Gutsy” premieres on Apple TV+ on Friday.
