The famous and beautiful actress Thandie Newton has opened up about being sexually assaulted when she was young and naive.
The 43-year- old English actor, is well known for her work in films like Mission Impossible, and the Crash. Newton revealed in an interview with W Magazine that when she was just 18 years old, she had been sexually assaulted by a filmmaker during an audition. Newton did not mention the director’s identity who sexually abused her nor did she said the name of the film she was auditioning for that time.
“A director, on a callback, had a camera shooting up my skirt and asked me to touch my t–s and think about the guy making love to me in the scene,” she said. “I thought, ‘Ok, this is a little weird,’ but there was a female casting director in the room and I’d done weird stuff before so I did it.”
She stated that the violence did not stop just in the audition. Years later, after such terrible event, at Cannes Film Festival, a drunk produced approached her and said he had seen her recently. Newton confessed that the producer “lurched away” very impressed by having said that to her.
According to the English actress, when her husband asked the producer an explanation of what he was talking about, he realized that the filmmaker was showing that abused audition tape to his friends after playing poker at his house, and they would all “get off on it.”
Newton said that she was so naïve when she was young and at the beginning of her career. Now, she realizes how important is to prepare our children. She believes that her confession will help save others to stop being sexually abused by a filmmaker.
