Alan Cumming's Best Friend Is... Monica Lewinsky?


On "Watch What Happens Live," Alan Cumming revealed Monica Lewinsky is one of his best friends.

"She is really one of the kindest, most loyal, loving, tender, funny girls I've ever known. I mean, I think she's really one of my best friends," he said. "Yeah. And she's been at my wedding. She knows my family."

Alan told Andy Cohen he met Monica about 16 years ago at a Marie Claire party, and they've been pals ever since.



He recently raved about her "lovely" personality to the New York Daily News while promoting his new book, "Not My Father's Son."

"She's absolutely one of the most loving, fun, clever, tender people. The fact that she's been able to remain such an amazing person with all that horrible bile that was heaped upon her as a young woman is testament to the person she is."

Alan is, of course, talking about Monica's affair with President Bill Clinton back in the 90s.

She recently spoke about the incident in her first-ever public address at the inaugural 30 Under 30 summit in Philadelphia. "I fell in love with my boss," she said at the event.

Alan too has been through his fair share of terribly trying times.

His new book focuses on his complicated relationship with his emotionally and physically abusive father and the family secrets that helped shape his life and career.
