“I have my own experiences that have come back to me very vividly and I have found it hard to sleep, hard to think, hard to communicate. A lot of the feelings I’ve been having about anxiety, about being honest, the guilt for not speaking up earlier or taking action.”

She went on to describe her “true disgust at the director who assaulted me when I was 16 years old and anger that I felt at the agents and anger at the agent and producers who made me feel that silence was a condition of my employment.”

Reese went on to explain that there were many other experiences following that one, and that she was motivated to speak up “because I felt less alone this week than I’ve ever felt in my entire career.”
