The young actress was even more sincere about hard times.
Abigail Breslin surprised his followers a week ago by revealing through his Instagram that in the past he had been the victim of rape.
Although at that time received great support from her fans, the protagonist of the film Little Miss Sunshine has been partly forced to give more details now on such a traumatic event to counter the comment of a user of the Same social network, who abjectly questioned the ‘legitimacy’ of its aggression solely because it had not been denounced.
“First off, I was in complete shock and total denial. I didn’t want to view myself as a ‘victim’ so I suppressed it and pretended it never happened.”
“Second of all, I was in a relationship with my rapist and feared not being believed”replied the 21-year-old interpreter, thus revealing the identity of her attacker, who until now had avoided mentioning anything other than to admit that she was someone” Knew. ”
I also feared that if my case didn’t lead anywhere, he would still find out and hurt me even more. Thirdly, I knew how hurt my family and friends would be after finding out and I didn’t want to put them thru that,”continued Abigail to try to make her followers understand the emotional state she was in at the time.
Despite being sufficiently prepared to talk about it, the interpreter of Scream Queens acknowledges that she has not yet overcome the emotional aftereffects left by the aggression she suffered.
“I was diagnosed with PTSD a year and a half ago. I have made a lot of progress since the event occurred, but I won’t pretend it isn’t something I struggle with. I still have flashbacks, I still get nightmares, I still jump when somebody touches me unexpectedly, even if it’s my best friend tapping me on the shoulder. To say that rapes reported are the only rapes that count contributes to the ideology that survivors of unreported rape don’t matter. It’s unfair, untrue, and unhelpful. It’s like you got a black eye from getting punched in the face, but because you didn’t call the police, you didn’t really get a black eye. Unreported rapes count. Reported rapes count. End of story”, explained Abigail, who is determined to continue fighting to raise awareness of the seriousness of sexual violence and the importance of reporting it to root it
