"I was able to be there completely secluded," the 35-year-old said. "I just visualized [being] this sort of Masai warrior. I was just going to stand very still and very strong, and just let it all roll past me.
"I tried to keep as far away from it as I could and to understand that this is my family and it's the most precious thing to me." Despite Rupert's public apology and statement that expressed his desire to reconcile Liberty realised their marriage was over.
"I'm not a quitter," she says. "I've done everything I could to be the perfect wife and mother and really support my husband. But I just didn't have any more to give, you know?"
Despite the public breakdown of their marriage Liberty says she forgives her Snow White And The Huntsman director husband.
"We were together for 16 years, and that in itself is really beautiful," she said. "And we've created two exceptional lives together."
