she wants you to know that while she may be Hollywood’s current golden ticket, her rise to the top held its own share of struggles. In a new interview with Glamour magazine, the actress, who stars in the upcoming comedy “Night School,” said that she was raped at 17 by a police cadet.
“That whole experience put me in such a messed-up place for a long time and I ended up going to counseling,” she said, noting that she still struggles with the concept of justice.
“Me just yelling out people’s names with no thought behind it is pointless. I need a plan,” she continued. “I could be a voice, but what’s a voice going to do—just keep talking? Or is there action behind it?”
Though she did not name the cadet, nor where the incident took place, Haddish did tell the magazine that at the time, she reported the incident to authorities.
