Hollywood is speaking out as Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh testify on Capitol Hill about the Supreme Court nominee's alleged sexual assault.
Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexual and physical assault stemming from an alleged incident in the 1980s, when they were allegedly at a party during their high school years, and many celebs believe her. Kavanaugh has denied the accusations.
Actress Alyssa Milano was present at the Supreme Court Senate hearing on Thursday to show her support for Ford. “We’re here to support her and show our solidarity,” she told CNN’s MJ Lee in a video Lee tweeted. “This can’t be an easy day for her.”
Milano, who sat next to New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and was a guest of California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, wasn't the only star to speak out in support of Ford.
In a post on Twitter, Sarah Hyland said she believed Ford, and shared her own story of sexual assault, and why she didn't report it. "He was a friend. It was New Year's Eve my senior year of high school. Everyone was drunk. He broke in to the bathroom I was in. I hoped it was a dream but my ripped tights in the morning proved otherwise," she wrote. "I thought no one would believe me. I didn't want to be called dramatic. After all I didn't say no. Shock can do that to a person."
Halle Berry, Lena Waithe, Lena Dunham and more stars also expressed support for Ford on social media.
In a shout-out to Ford, Busy Philipps shared her own story of sexual assault, writing that she was raped at age 14. Last week, stars like Lili Reinhart, Padma Lakshmi, Ashley Judd and more came together to share their stories of sexual assault and the struggle many victims face in reporting such crimes.
