She had been pressured to have sexual relationships with leading industry figures to get a part.
Including a man she described as, A big director who has gotten Oscars and is known for his social justice profile.
He told her, “you know, as I look at you my mind can’t help but traveling from the artistic possibilities to the sexual.”
The most disturbing story :
One of her ‘very first auditions’ when she was just 16, she was abused by a casting director, in order to scare her for this horror movie scene.
He tied her to a chair, bruised her arm, and then he gagged her.
He took the gag out of her mouth and he said, ‘Sorry for the prophylactic,’ so he had gagged her with a condom.
