Some of her issues remain. “I still lie in bed at 11 o’clock at night telling myself all the things I hate about myself,” Williams admitted (per Cosmopolitan), but the actress has made a great deal of progress just by taking “a step away from it all.” However, being famous in the age of social media means you can never completely escape the vacuum. When she does use social media, she urges people to be respectful of one another, though it doesn’t always pan out that way. “If you’re trying to teach manners on the internet, you’ve got another thing coming,” she said.
In 2016, Williams raised awareness about this widespread issue with the Channel 4 drama Cyberbully. “Trolling is the biggest thing that anyone faces, and it’s easy to dismiss, but it does hurt,” she said while promoting the show. “As much as we like to say we don’t care, of course we do.”
