Evan Rachel Wood 'taking a break from social media' after sharing sexual assault stories

Updated: Nov 30, 2016 13:26 IST

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 30 (ANI): Evan Rachel Wood recently shared that it is in her best interest to take "a break from social media" for the time being.

Following a recent sit-down with Rolling Stone in which she revealed two separate instances of "physical, psychological [and] sexual" abuse, the 29-year-old star shared her decision on Twitter.

"Will be taking a break from social media for the time being. Thank you for all your support and courageous stories. You are not alone. xo," Wood tweeted.

Following the interview, the ' Westworld' actress also earlier posted the letter she sent to Rolling Stone elaborating on the sexual assaults, part of which was included in the published story.

"I will not be ashamed," a line from the letter read, "I will also not project some false idea of being completely over it because 'I am so strong.' I don't believe we live in a time where people can stay silent any longer. I certainly can't."

Wood said the abuse contributed to her attempting suicide at a young age of 22, a chapter in her life she termed "weirdly, the best-worst thing" that ever happened to her because it "did not work."

Alongside the picture was captioned, "Well, since everything is out in the open now, figured I would share the confession letter I wrote to @RollingStone in its entirety."

In 2011, Wood came out as bisexual and identifies as gender-fluid.

Of the experience, she admitted to the magazine that she did not realize "how damaging" that was until she tried to have healthy relationships as an adult.

".realized that there was still all this shame and conditioning and stigma around my sexuality that was really affecting the way I related to people," she revealed. (ANI)
