Monica Lewinsky says that former President Clinton "should want to apologize" for his part in the 1990s scandal surrounding his affair with her, a then-White House intern.
"I think there was a long period before my life changed in the last six or seven years, where I felt a lot in terms of there not being this resolution. And I'm very grateful that I don't have that feeling anymore," Lewinsky told "Today's" Savannah Guthrie on Tuesday when asked if she feels that Clinton owes her an apology.
"I don't need it," Lewinsky continued.
"He should want to apologize in the same way that I'd want to apologize any chance I get to people I hurt and my actions have hurt," she said of the 42nd president.

Lewinsky, 48, appeared on "Today" to promote FX's "American Crime Story: Impeachment," premiering on Tuesday.
Beanie Feldstein stars as the 22-year-old White House intern on the dramatic series, which focuses on the "overlooked dimensions" of Lewinsky's story. Lewinsky served as a producer on the show.
"It is a dramatization, but there's an enormous amount of emotional truth, and I think that's what was really important," Lewinsky told Guthrie.
"I think a lot of people know about the story, but people are going to be very surprised when they watch it of things that they didn't know happened," Lewinsky said. "There were so many margin notes I had in the scripts of like, 'Did this really happen?' So even I learned things," she said with a laugh.

"As a producer, I'm very proud," Lewinsky said of the project. "As a subject, I'm nervous. I'm nervous for people to see some of the worst moments of my life."
