AnnaLynne McCord opens up about her Childhood Horrors

May 30, 2014 

AnnaLynne McCord as sexually abused when she was a child by a close acquaintance during her early days in Hollywood.

The Dallas actress "grew up in an extremely religious and conservative" household, with a pastor father and mother who homeschooled her and her two sisters.

"My parents believed in strict 'discipline,' as they called itóI would call it abuse," she explains.

"The punishments were painful and ritualistic. We would have to bend over the bed, sometimes with our pants down, arms outstretched, and get spankedówith a ruler in our younger years and later with a paddle that my parents bought when they thought the ruler wasn't strong enough."

"After all, as I had learned in my childhood, people who loved me hurt me."

"I felt so disoriented and numb. I closed my eyes and pretended to be asleep," she told the magazine.

"Because of the physical abuse, I didn't believe there were borders between other people's bodies and my own. I didn't believe I had a voice."
