Little Miss Sunshine Abigail Breslin is making headlines this week for starring in a TV remake of the iconic Dirty Dancing film and for being a victim of sexual assault.
The 21-year-old actress has been an advocate for sexual assault awareness but she shocked fans when she revealed that she too was a victim of rape.
Breslin took to her Instagram account to share her awful PTSD-inducing experience which was brought upon her by someone she knew.
The post read: "You are not obligated to have sex with someone that you're in a relationship with. Dating is not consent. Marriage is not consent."
"I knew my assailant" Breslin wrote in the caption.
The young star's confession resonated with plenty of women who also came clean about their own experiences and commended her bravery in the comments. Celebrities like Sarah Hyland and Debra Messing also applauded Breslin for her sharing her story.
Breslin also came clean about why she didn't report her rape after someone commented on her initial post that "reported rapes are the only rapes that count."
