Evan Rachel Wood is stepping back a bit after recently opening up about two instances of sexual assault.
“Will be taking a break from social media for the time being,” the 29-year-old actress tweeted on Tuesday. “Thank you for all your support and courageous stories. You are not alone. Xo”

“The first time I was I unsure that if it was done by a partner it was in fact rape, until too late,” the mother of one told the magazine. “And the second time, I thought it was my fault and that I should have fought back more, but I was scared.”
“I am alive. I am happy. I am strong. But I am still not OK,” Wood continued. “It’s important for survivors to own that, and that the pressure to just get over it already, should be lifted. It will remind people of that damage that has been done and how the trauma of a few minutes can turn into a lifetime of fighting for yourself.”
While Wood brought up her past experience with "physical, psychological, sexual," during the Rolling Stone interview, she later went into more detail in an email sent to the outlet.
She then shared the full content of the email statement on Twitter on Monday.
