In the past, her former Constance friends weren’t always supportive of her acting career. In 2019, the star said Watchman About an earlier flame she had gotten in the early 2000s, when she was living in New York.
She said, “I had a friend that I was in love with, and he wasn’t very excited about the idea of being with an actress, because she wasn’t stable.” It wasn’t like, “I don’t want to be with an actress,” but he said, “I just want a partner with a stable job.” I tried it. It didn’t work for me. That relationship didn’t work out in the end.
She also opened up to The Hollywood Reporter In 2018 about the public backlash she faced from Asian American men to interracial dating.
The new mom said, “They assume every one of my friends was white based on one friend they saw on my social media, the person I was dating when I started my account.” “But if this anger is so great and is caused by something rather small and not necessarily verifiable, then it is a matter of a deeper issue, and I or other Asian women may be the unfortunate target of it,” Constance continued.
“The way I’m trying to think about it is for someone to need to target me as part of their long journey to find out how they feel about themselves and their place in the world,” the Virginia native added. “I think that’s a good thing. Of course it’s hated. Things don’t look good, but I understand.”
