She added: "Because you pick out literally, 'Do they wear glasses? Did they have acne? How tall?' It's very interesting when you think about it that way."

"There is a difference between being lonely and being alone," the actress said at the time in 2019.

"I have been single for a very long time but there is nothing lonely about my life. I want to remove the stigma of that."

For her appearance, Teri rocked a fabulous soft-pink tie-dye Kevan Hall suit with nude Christrian Louboutin heels.
