Unlike Issa’s character on the tv series, she’s uber personal about her individual life.
As she explained, “I’ve always been private even in my friendships, because I’m like, ‘Oh, people don’t care.'”
“I joke that my friend scarred me because I was telling my business in high school, and she was like, ‘But, Issa, nobody cares. Stop.’ And then I was like, ‘Don’t nobody do care. That’s true.’ That stuck with me,” she continued. “Or even hearing, again, in my friendship circles, people that talk s–t about relationships and root for your s–t to fail in so many ways. I don’t want to give anybody anything to wish to fail.”
Aside from not desiring that unfavorable energy, Issa pointed out how odd it is for complete strangers to discuss her individual life.
“I remember, back in the day, I used to post my relationship from a long time ago,” she remembered, “And I remember I saw these commenters that I didn’t know, comment on an old picture and be like, ‘See.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t like this.’ And then, from that point forward, I was like, ‘Oh, I’m never acknowledging anything.'”
