Due to a nondisclosure agreement stemming from her sexual harassment settlement with Fox News, Carlson wasn't allowed to be involved in the Showtime miniseries on Roger Ailes. “What I’ve heard through the grapevine is that she did a tremendous amount of research on me, she read my books, and she really wanted to do the role justice," Carlson said of Watts at The Loudest Voice premiere. "All I can say is wow. I have this amazing, high-caliber actress who’s playing me. I’m honored."
