Pauley Perrette understands that she will always be coping with trauma.
The NCIS star opened up to ET, a little over a year after her life-threatening attack by a homeless man, at the Trevor Project's Trevor Live event in Los Angeles on Sunday -- a benefit for the nationally accredited organization that advocates for LGBTQ youth, as well as providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services.
"It was one year ago on [Nov.] 12 that I was attacked. I’m doing all right. It was a really bizarre thing," the 47-year-old actress shared. "The anniversary of it was a strange day, and it was like I got attacked and almost lost my life, and when I finally fell asleep, I woke up, and the Paris attacks were happening."
"It was like the apocalypse," she added. "It was just a really bizarre time."
