Actress Evan Rachel Wood disclosed to Rolling Stone that she had suffered “physical, psychological (and) sexual” abuse in the past but didn't go into detail.
The 29-year-old posted a lengthy open letter on Twitter on Monday explaining what happened to her.
"Well, since everything is out in the open now, figured I would share the confession letter I wrote to @RollingStone in its entirety. #notOk," she said in her tweet.
The actress wrote that she has been raped twice, once by a partner "and on a separate occasion, by the owner of a bar.”
Evan did not come forward at the time because she feared that she would be accused of saying it "for attention" and didn't want to make it a "sob story" about herself.
She had questioned whether one encounter was actually rape, and thought that others would say that it wasn't.
She didn't want to be blamed for the incidents and questioned whether anyone would believe her.
"I don’t believe we live in a time where people can stay silent any longer. I certainly can’t," she wrote.
The Westwood star also said that the rapes were contributing factors in her attempt to commit suicide
Their relationship was only made public a few weeks ago, following months of speculation – but it seems Evan Rachel Wood and Katherine Moennig are over already.
A source for US Weekly has said that it is all over for the actress’ who began their friendship quite a while ago, exchanging flirty texts back in February 2013.
Katherine, who is known for her role in The L Word, was said to be the first person Evan was linked to since her high-profile split from Jamie Bell.
Evan hinted at possible heartbreak at the beginning of November, when she tweeted: “it hurts.”
Jamie and Evan were married in 2012 before announcing their split in May of this year.
They have one son together, whose name has never been released.
It has been reported that Evan Rachel Wood is dating fellow actress, Katherine Moennig.
Evan and Katherine had a few flirty exchanges on Twitter last year, but it sounds as if things have blossomed even further.
In one sweet exchange from February 2013, Evan exclaimed her love for Katherine and how she helped her “realise” who she is: “Just saw @katemoennig at a flea market. I turned to mush and ran. Love her!!”
The L Word actress replied, saying: “@evanrachewood you should have said hi :)” to which Evan promised she would next time: @Haha. I would have slurred my words. Next time. But yea, you are amazing. Helped me realise who i am. Big fan 😉 @katemoennig.”
Katherine is the first person Evan has been linked to since her split from husband, Jamie Bell, with whom she has one child, a son whose name has never been publicly released.
Could this be the start of something wonderful for Evan?
There’s been quite a few nostalgic throwbacks recently to Vanity Fair’s classic ‘Raining Teens’ cover of 2003, which boasted nine of the biggest up-and-coming young female stars of the time.
With the likes of Amanda Bynes, the Olsens, Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan gracing the front page, it seems like the most glamorous photo shoot in the world.
But actress Evan Rachel Wood, who was one of the chosen nine, has revealed her horror at being treated like “meat” during the ordeal.
Opening up on the darker and more disturbing side of Hollywood, the actress took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the shoot.
“I was almost in tears after this shoot. They tried that dress on me, I wasn’t comfortable but they told me there was no time…cause everyone else took up too much time with their fittings,” began the Thirteen star.
The 27-year-old goes on to recount how she wasn’t allowed to wear flat shoes, and how the girls were then “all lined up, stared at and approved”.
She added: “I was 15 and felt for the first time my identity being erased and the pressure…to shut up and do what you are told. I felt like meat.”
We always looked back fondly on this iconic cover page. It just goes to show that you never know what’s really going on behind-the-scenes.
Evan Rachel Wood went on a Twitter rant yesterday, to clear up reports that she hooked-up with actress, Michelle Rodriguez.
It was revealed during the week that Evan was separating from her husband of two years, Jamie Bell.
However, soon as that news broke, rumours began spreading that the 26-year-old actress had spent the night with Michelle.
Media sources claimed that two actresses hooked-up, after meeting at the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center’s An Evening With Women, last week.
Evan quickly tweeted that there was no truth behind any of those rumours.
“I have never even said ‘hello’ to Michelle Rodriguez. I think its convenient someone chose to make up the story now and not that night.
She then went on to tweet about her difficult speration: “This is ‘journalism’ at its lowest. Complete lies made up to exploit a public separation, as if that isnt hard enough. Disgusting.”
“Also just because you are in a photo with someone doesnt mean you spoke or slept together. Really guys?”
We have to admit that this rumour is a ridiculous one, especially since Michelle was spotted spending time with her girlfriend, Cara Delevingne last night.
Evan Rachel Wood’s rep. has officially revealed that Evan and her husband, Jamie Bell are separating after two years of marriage.
“Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have decided to separate. They both love and respect one another and will of course remain committed to co-parenting their son. This is a mutual decision and the two remain close friends.”
Evan met Jamie in 2006 and tied the knot eight years later. The couple welcomed a baby boy last July and Evan spoke recently of enjoying life as a new mother.
“It was my dream to be a mom, so I’m loving it. I love it.”
A source close to Evan added: “They love each other so much but it just wasn’t right.”
We wish them all the best, it’s never easy to end an relationship.
