Marcia Clark has not had much contact with those involved with FX's American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.
While Clark is watching The People v. O.J. Simpson as it airs, she recently admitted that she did not have contact with the cast or crew as it was being filmed, except her portrayer, Sarah Paulson.
Clark spoke openly in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter about her involvement in the process, saying that even if she was invited to go to a screening beforehand she would have turned it down.
"I wouldn't have gone. To watch that in front of other people? Oh my God!" she said. "Who's going to hold me down when I run for the balcony and throw myself off?"
She also revealed that there are some inconsistencies between what happened in real life versus how it's being portrayed on the show. For one, Robert Shapiro (played by John Travolta in the miniseries) did not try on the infamous glove in court when others weren't looking.
"Never happened," she said. "Could never happen. They would never leave evidence out like that, and no one can touch [it] unless the bailiff is there, the judge, everybody."
The verdict wound up ruling in O.J. Simpson's favor, but Clark still believes he's completely guilty of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. The prosecutor was asked by The Hollywood Reporter if she thinks O.J.'s behavior was influenced by CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy), a brain disease affecting many football players:
"I have thought about it. [But] from what I understand, it causes explosive behavior, unpredictable behavior. I have never heard that it promotes this kind of planned behavior," she noted.
Clark also revealed that she had a run-in with O.J. when she covered his armed robbery trial for Entertainment Tonight.
"He was walking toward his area of the cafeteria, which was kind of cordoned off for him," she said. "And as he passed by, he looked at me and said, 'Ms. Clark.' And I said, 'Mr. Simpson.' That's it."
American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
