Los Angeles - Evan Rachel Wood revealed that she has been raped twice.

The revelation comes in a "confession letter" to Rolling Stone that Evan made public on Twitter on Monday.

The Westworld actress posted the letter after the incidents were mentioned in a Rolling Stone profile of her published earlier this month.

In the caption Evan wrote, "Well, since everything is out in the open now, figured I would share the confession letter I wrote to @RollingStone in its entirety. #NotOk (sic)"

In the note, she writes about "questioning my reasons for staying vague about my experiences as a girl growing up in America." And while Evan didn't want to turn it into a "sob story" she couldn't stay silent any longer.

She continues to reveal, "Yes, I have been raped."

The 29-year-old says she was assaulted once "by a significant other" she was together with at the time, and by a bar owner during a separate incident. She says she initially questioned herself over both incidents, which she says took place "many many years ago."

Evan adds in the letter that she believes being raped "was one of the many factors" behind a suicide attempt when she was 22.

Since sharing the letter Evan has decided to take time off from social media. 

In a tweet she wrote, "Will be taking a break from social media for the time being.Thank you for all your support and courageous stories. You are not alone. xo"
