Lucy Hale Opens Up About Her Experience with Sexual Assault & #MeToo

Lucy Hale Opens Up About Her Experience with Sexual Assault & #MeToo

Earlier this year, Lucy Hale opened up, and quickly deleted, her own #MeToo story on social media.

Now, the 29-year-old actress is opening up about the situation in her cover story with Haute Living.

“I never understood sexual assault until tonight,” Lucy wrote in her original note. “I always sympathized but never truly felt the pain of it until right now. My dignity and pride was broken.”

“I’ve experienced stuff on the small side, but assault is assault,” Lucy told the mag, revealing that it happened at a time when she was intoxicated. “I think there are a lot of people who have been intoxicated and taken advantage of. It’s happened to me and people I know. It’s very common.”

She adds, “Luckily, I’ve been unscathed; nothing’s hurt me too badly.”

Even going through that, Lucy still loves everything about Los Angeles.

“I’ve had super-dark times here, but it’s been a place that’s always had my back. I know it sounds weird, but I’ve always been at ease here. For me, this is it. I think I’ll always live here. I feel like I can be myself here.”
