The 48-year-old former White House intern sat down with Today show host Savannah Guthrie on Monday and talked about not getting closure from the former president.

"There was a long period, before my life changed in the last six or seven years, where I felt a lot in terms of there not being this resolution," she told Savannah on Monday. "I'm very grateful that I don't have that feeling anymore. I don't need it."

Lewinsky is a producer on Ryan Murphy's Impeachment: American Crime Story, and while working on the series has been therapeutic, she would still like an apology from Clinton.

"He should want to apologize in the same way I want to apologize any chance I get to people my actions have hurt," Lewinsky stated.

"Would you want Bill Clinton to see this series?" Savannah asked Lewinsky, to which she responded, "I don't even know how to really answer that."

She also discussed the struggles she faced with putting her story out there all these years later.

"I do not recommend watching your early 20s be dramatized on TV," Lewinsky said during the interview. "Especially in this instance where the truth really was stranger than fiction. (There were) moments where I just thought, 'Don't smile back. Don't talk to her. Don't confess. Don't do this, don't do that. Don't make bad decisions.' I think that that was really hard to see."

But Lewinsky quickly realized she couldn't leave any minor detail out because "the credibility of the show would have been significantly affected."

"But more than that, it was really, 'I shouldn't get a pass.' ... I thought that was important. I think truth and context were really missing in the beginning of 1998 throughout the process, and I hope those are all things that we brought to the show," she stated.

The FX series won't disappoint with the topic being Clinton's 90's sex scandal with Lewinsky during his time in office — and during his marriage to Hillary Clinton.

Lewinsky will be played by Beanie Feldstein, while Clive Owen will take on the role of Clinton.

While Hillary stayed by Clinton's side despite the scandal, she appeared icy and kept her distance from her husband ahead of the premiere date.
