But she also says that, counter to the tabloid headlines, she and her husband didn't lose everything.

Speaking to the Boston Globe, Sedgwick said:

Well, it wasn't the truth that we were destroyed. And I think when you say `no comment,' that's, of course, where they're going to go, because it's fun and it grabs headlines and people will be more interested.

It's been really unpleasant and makes you feel really vulnerable. But the fact of the matter is that we did not lose everything. We lost hard-earned money that we worked very hard for that was what we thought in a safe place. It's painful but a lot of people lost a lot more. And we have a lot of things to be grateful for in our life, and we never ever forget that.

Also helping Sedgwick remember to stay grateful? She just received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last week, and her show The Closer kicked off this summer with a huge ratings, garnering 7.1 millions viewers, the largest audience this year for a show on basic cable.
