Eliza Dushku shared her experiences with alcohol and drug addition and getting sober at the Watertown Overcoming Addiction Candlelight Vigil and Memorial held Wednesday night..

Eliza Dushku was interviewed by Time magazine about her #MeToo experiences, and her latest project, the biopic Mapplethorpe.

Watertown’s Eliza Dushku spoke to Time magazine about how she is responding to her #MeToo experience on the set of Bull, the movie she and her brother Nate produced — Mapplethorpe, and her sobriety.

In the piece, which came out online Tuesday, Dushku also talks about her pursuit of a college degree at Lesley University, which is why the interview took place near Harvard Square.

In December, she was the subject of headlines when the New York Times revealed that CBS had paid her a multimillion dollar settlement after she complained about being sexually harassed on the set of the show Bull by the show’s star, Michael Weatherly. She spoke out about it in the Boston Globe.

This came after she had revealed in January 2018 that she has been sexually assaulted at the age of 12 on the set of True Lies.

Earlier this month, Mapplethorpe, the movie she and her brother Nate produced, debuted in theaters. The biopic about the artist Robert Mapplethorpe (starring Matt Smith of The Crown and Doctor Who) has been years in the making and a labor of love.
