The 52-year-old star appeared on Good Morning Britain recently , where she advocated for Assange’s asylum, reported Fox News.
“He was right seeking asylum because everything he said was going to happen, happened,” Anderson said.
Assange was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London in April after Ecuador withdrew his asylum.
He was charged with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion for aiding Chelsea Manning in the cracking of a password to a classified U.S. government computer in 2010, the U.S. Justice Department announced, reported Fox News.
Since the arrest of Assange, Anderson has visited him in prison multiple times.

“He’s just a fantastic guy,” she said. “I saw him, he hugged me and picked me up off the ground. He’s still this testament of human spirit.”
When asked what the visit was like, she replied, “I went to visit him in prison. That’s not somewhere you want to leave a dear friend. I care a great deal about Julian. I think he has been psychologically tortured.”
