    Busy Philipps Reveals She Was Raped When She Was 14 Years Old

    "It's taken me 25 years to say those words."

    Earlier today, Busy Philipps took to Instagram to share her personal experience with sexual assault.

    Busy opened up about the incident in the photo caption:

    This is me at 14. The age I was raped. It's taken me 25 years to say those words. I wrote about it in my book. I finally told my parents and sister about it 4 months ago.

    Today is the day we are silent no more. All of us. I'm scared to post this. I can't imagine what Dr. Ford is feeling right now.

    Busy ended her Instagram caption by mentioning Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who testified in the Senate on Thursday that she was assaulted by President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh when they were both teenagers.
