“I love him,” she said earlier this week at Paramount's lunch for the movie "Selma."
She also defended Cosby's real-life wife Camille, saying, "This is a tough woman, a smart woman."

Cosby's lawyer released a statement early on saying, "The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true."
Another attorney for Cosby, Martin D. Singer, added in late November, "The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated,
fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity.
"These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous, and it is completely illogical that so many people would have said nothing, done nothing, and made no reports to law enforcement or asserted civil claims if they thought they had been assaulted over a span of so many years."
