Liberty Ross is refusing to be stuck in the past.
"Unfortunately, we live in a world where everything is so overexposed that it's actually terrifying. I was horrified at how relentless and extraordinary going through something like that was," she told the fashion magazine.
"I was able to go and be somewhere secluded for a good month. And then when school went back, I had no choice but to be as strong a woman as I could be for the children."
But she further divulged that one of the key factors in getting past the traumatic incident was forgiveness.
"People need to learn to forgive. I have no problem with anyone involved. I'm completely compassionate, I really am. No life is perfect, we all have our problems and issues and I believe that it's good to be true to who you are."
She continued, "Rupert and I were together since we were very, very young. I was 18—essentially, I married my first boyfriend. I always used to say we were more like a brother and sister anyway. We'd been together for so long, we weren't really evolving together as a couple so much."
And Ross, who is now in a relationship with music mogul Jimmy Iovine, dished that she's not quite ready to tie the knot again.
"Not now. I don't know, gosh. I believe in love and I have no problems with marriage, but I need this time to be strengthening for me and I wouldn't commit to anyone until I know I am the absolute best person I could be."
