She wrote, “But as someone who has experienced a small taste of what Britney has gone through, I know that what she has done is a profoundly radical act, one that I hope will ripple through the bodies and bank accounts of women across industries for generations to come. By speaking up, she has reminded us that our autonomy, both bodily and fiscal, is worth fighting for.”
Tamblyn then went on to describe how her parents gave their input on her finances and acting choices. She says the relationship is friendly, but she experienced discomfort about their roles. More specifically she claims she was, “everyone’s A.T.M. A bank that was, nonetheless, unconditionally loved. Still, as I got older, it got harder to trust the source of that love.”

She wrote, “I can see how easy it would have been to slip into those dynamics. In these situations, some kind of damage is invariably done — a stunting of the ability of an individual to grow and make the most basic of decisions, or practice good boundaries. When I finally parted professional ways with my parents, they couldn’t help but feel as if they had done something wrong. But they hadn’t. Money had.”
