‘Westworld’ Star Evan Rachel Wood Reveals She Has Been Raped Twice
The Westworld star initially admitted she has suffered “physical, psychological [and] sexual” abuse without giving details; however, after Donald Trump was elected President, the actress emailed the reporter to open up about a lot more.
“Yes, I’ve been raped. By a significant other while we were together. And on a separate occasion, by the owner of a bar,” she wrote. “I don’t believe we live in a time where people can stay silent any longer. Not given the state our world is in with its blatant bigotry and sexism.”
Wood also told the magazine that her role on Westworld helped her “make peace” with her past. “I mean, your demons never fully leave,” she said. “But when you’re using them to create something else, it almost gives them a purpose and feels like none of it was in vain.”
“I think that’s how I make peace with it. Westworld? Good God. I left so much in that first season and never looked back,” she added.
