Williams enlisted her own experiences of when she took some bold decisions in her life. She even believes that Stuart Weitzman’s decision of starring Olympia alongside her in the campaign was also a bold move.

“Honestly, I think because I’ve been put in that position so many times that I’ve been able to make other bold moves- my philanthropy as well as my business ventures, even starring in the Stuart Weitzman campaign.

“It was a super bold move to have in it, by you guys as well, to have a three-year-old. I mean it was really bold. I didn’t expect it to come in from you all,” added the American legend.
