This actress was raped as a kid!

Los Angeles: International Women Day is around the corner and the world is discussing about the scenarios like women empowerment and threats to females socially. Celebrities have confessed about their past experience too.

Hollywood legend Jane Fonda has revealed that she was raped and sexually abused when she was a child.

The 79-year-old star, in an interview with actress Brie Larson for Net-a-Porters The Edit, explained that she often felt "diminished" with the men in her life, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Ive been raped, Ive been sexually abused as a child and Ive been fired because I wouldnt sleep with my boss and I always thought it was my fault; that I didnt do or say the right thing," Fonda told Larson, who has been a vocal advocate for abuse.

The Oscar-winning actress touched upon the power of the word No by saying, "Unlike you, Brie, it took me 60 years to learn how to say no... If anyone offered me anything I would say yes. I took parts I wasnt right for and I was taken advantage of."

Earlier at an event in 2014, Fonda revealed her mother, Frances Ford Seymour was sexually abused as a child before committing suicide when the actress was just 12.
