Mira Sorvino has revealed that she is a survivor of rape.

& # 39; I am a survivor of date rape & # 39 ;, she said.

& # 39; You feel shame & # 39 ;: Mira Sorvino has revealed that she is a survivor of date rape (shown in October 2018)
Mira refused to comment on details about the incident.
& # 39; I can tell you, because in situations of second-degree rape, what would be mine, you feel shame, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; You feel it was your fault, that you should have been smarter, you should have been better protected, you should not have taken that drink, who knows what was in it. & # 39;
Mira was one of many women who came forward to accuse the shamed producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment.
She also revealed that at the age of 16 she was tied to a chair and during one of her first auditions with a condom, she was pinched by a director.
& # 39; To frighten me for this horror movie scene, he tied me to a chair, he squeezed my arm, and I was 16 years old, and then he gagged me, and I was completely wild because I'm trying to be afraid for the scene, & she said, in an interview with The HFPA in conversation.
& # 39; And at the end he took the plug out of my mouth and said: & # 39; Sorry for the prophylactic, & # 39; so he'd put me in the mouth with a condom. & # 39;
