"It was a wild experience. But honestly, it was a really beautiful time. Because I learned a lot about myself and I grew as an actor. I grew as a person on this," she said at the time, adding that shooting scenes with her Euphoria star ex was "fine."

King also told Cosmo about her self-care routines and how she has to convince herself that it's not selfish to prioritize her mental health.

"I preach a lot about being proactive about your mental health and not feeling selfish for feeling depressed or upset, but then when I sink into these weird moods, I immediately feel super selfish, which makes me feel worse," she shared. "When it comes to taking care of yourself, there is a certain level of selfishness you have to have, but it’s hard."

She added, "I haven’t found that balance yet. Because I in no way, shape or form want to make any conversation that I start right now about me."

The actress — who called the year 2020 a "piece of s—" — said that she's holding out hope that the world comes out of the pandemic stronger than before. "I know it’s silly to hope that everything’s beautiful by September because it won’t be. So I’m hoping that there’s hope. That’s more realistic," she said.
