Busy Philipps is sharing her truth.
The Freaks and Geeks alum took to Instagram on Thursday to share a #tbt of herself when she was 14 years old, but along with the picture came an unsettling revelation: 14 was the age she was “raped.”
In the caption, the 39-year-old said she held on to this secret for 25 years, only telling her parents and sister about it just 4 months ago.
Now, she’s staying silent no more. Busy even wrote about the trauma in her book, This Will Only Hurt A Little, hitting shelves October 16.

#tbt 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.
