Her visits with Assange led to speculation that there’s was more than just a platonic friendship.
Of her time spent with Assange, the Canadian-born actress and model stated to Variety: ‘It was romantic because it was so inspirational.’
‘He’s so passionate about life and about everything. There’s just nothing that he says that isn’t fascinating,’ she gushed.
‘So there was definitely a connection. We would just talk through the night and drink mezcal and laugh and tell stories.’
In 2019, Assange’s asylum was withdrawn and he was arrested by British authorities.
Facing charges under America’s Espionage Act, the Wikileaks founder is currently being held in a maximum security prison in England as he continues to fight extradition to the United States.
While she is no longer able to visit him, Anderson shared that she continues to write to him and her letters are read to him behind bars by a member of his legal team.

The former Playboy pinup is currently dishing plenty of tales about her high-profile life and career as she promotes her memoir and documentary.
In one anecdote, she recalled to Variety how her presence at the Kremlin had caused a frisson of excitement for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
A longtime animal rights activist, she lobbied Russian politicians to ban the import of seal products.
‘I’d be at the Kremlin, sitting at the table, and everybody would be there,’ she said. ‘Putin was only in the room once, but he heard of everything. I would get messages from other people that he was pleased that I was there.’
‘He kind of got a kick out of me,’ she added.
