AnnaLynne McCord's Painful Past (Part 3)

AnnaLynne McCord has been the victim of rape and it didn’t come from a stranger, but someone she knew and thought she could trust. How did she deal with the traumatic experience?

Annalynne Mccord says she experienced a rough upbringing. Many of her past romantic relationships have been far from healthy, but now she is happy with her boyfriend Dominic Purcell. It brings light to the horrific practice of children being sold into sex traffic rings. Annalynne was a victim of rape from someone she knew. I was so disoriented and very much asleep. I remember when I actually became aware that he was inside of me. And I don't remember how I became aware of it. I remember that I was disoriented, but I remember the moment it dawned on me what was happening was sex. Annalynne moved to L.A. From New York when she was 18 to pursue acting. At the time her boyfriend was still in New York. One night a male friend asked if he could stay with her. After falling deeply asleep, she woke to him raping her. I didn't give myself the right to exist or be there. So I was just kind of like I I was laying there and my brain switched into a different mode. I thought I can get an STD, I can get preg that, this can't be happening. She described how she was raped by a friend who started his assault on her while she was sleeping. Annalynne regretted it as soon as it happened. I was just frozen in time. I didn't regret it yet. I would look here, and then look at the ceiling for three or four hours until the sun came up. I literally crept out of my room, wrote a note, left my own house, got into my car, drove a block down the street so I could see my street, and watched him -- I sat in my car for an hour and a half waiting for him to leave. I went back to my house, I took a shower, I went to my appointments, went to dinner, and acted like it didn't happen. Starting repressing? Yes. At first, she kept the trauma to herself. She tried to avoid social situations where she knew her attacker would be present. Did you confront him? He came up to me, there was a corner, and he had his hands on each side of the corner, and he was like -- I'm literally backing into the corner. I could not say to him -- I could not even talk, really. He kept saying you know what we had, it was beautiful, you know what we had. And when I could finally talk, I said you know what happened. You know what happened. You know what happened. I'm trying, I'm reliving it right now, but I can't even tell you. My stomach is in knots. She admitted the rape to those close to her. Did you ever tell him "You raped me." I couldn't at that stage and I never saw him again.
