Evan Rachel Wood: ‘Yes, I have been raped’

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Evan Rachel Wood has re­vealed that she has been raped twice. The rev­e­la­tion comes in a let­ter to Rolling Stone that Wood made pub­lic on Twit­ter Mon­day. In the note, she writes, “Yes, I have been raped.” She says was as­saulted once “by a sig­nif­i­cant other” she was with at the time, and by a bar owner dur­ing a separate in­ci­dent. She says she ini­tially ques­tioned her­self over both in­ci­dents, which she says took place “many many years ago.”

The “West­world” ac­tress posted the let­ter af­ter the in­ci­dents were men­tioned in a Rolling Stone pro­file of her pub­lished ear­lier this month.

Wood says in the let­ter that she be­lieves be­ing raped “was one of the many fac­tors” be­hind a sui­cide at­tempt when she was 22.
