During an exclusive interview with FOX19, Miss Ohio Audrey Bolte said she is sticking by a controversial answer she gave during the interview portion of the Miss USA pageant.
When answering a question about how women are portrayed in movies, Bolte used Julia Roberts' character in Pretty Woman as an example of a positive role model. Roberts played a prostitute in that movie.
"I'm going to stick with my answer," she said. "I feel very confident in the way I answered it. I felt I had 30 seconds on live TV and I felt I answered it the best I could at that moment."
Bolte said the media likes to take what is said out of context.
"For the record, I do not feel that prostitutes are role models," she said. "That was not the question. Those words were not ever out of my mouth.
"I feel the movie I gave an example of shows inaccurate and accurate roles of women in movies, because at the end of the movie she turned out to be a wonderful, well-rounded woman," she added.
Bolte, of Batavia, finished as second runner up in the pageant. She said she feels her answer did not cost her the crown.
