The actress also highlighted the consequences of the disease, which attacks the uterus. “Because, really, living with pain… [é ruim] and anyone who has endometriosis, or thinks he has it, knows what it’s like to live with it. So if a woman who is me has been able to inspire with this live, she transforms for me, it becomes much more special than this whole process of discovery, of learning,” she added.
