6 YA Movie Actresses Who Were in Abusive Relationships
Whether it’s emotional or physical, violent relationships are more common than we would like to believe. (We would like to believe that they’re less than rare; that they don’t even exist, actually.) Sadly, even some of your favorite YA actresses have been stuck in these harmful — and often dangerous — situations.
Rather than dwelling in their fear and pain, these strong young women have shared their stories in order to help those in similar circumstances. Or, in one particular instance on the below list, the female talent is known as the one to commit the domestic violence against her partner. (Yes, men get abused, too!) From Lily Collins to Sarah Hyland, here are six young adult film actresses who have been in an abusive relationship:
Lily Collins opened up about her physically and emotionally abusive relationship in her 2017 book of personal essays, No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me. Lily, who starred in The Mortal Instruments in 2013, addresses a former relationship in the tell-all book in which she was emotionally abused before becoming physically abused. She told People.com that her former boyfriend grabbed her neck with his hand during a heated argument. The act was eye opening for the brunette beauty, who ultimately ended the negative relationship.
Although she admits it's an awkward subject to talk about, she chose to be candid in hopes of inspiring her fans.
