Hollywood actress, Jena Malone has revealed that she was “sexually assaulted” while filming “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2.”
Malone, 38, gave her followers a “trigger warning” alongside a photo of herself in a wheat field after wrapping the Francis Lawrence-directed film in 2015.
“This photo was taken right after I wrapped mocking Jay part two and I had to say goodbye to everyone on set,” she said .
“We were shooting in a beautiful estate in the countryside of France and I asked the driver to let me out in this field so I could cry and capture this moment.”
The actress said the sexual assault was committed by someone she worked with in the film “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.”
Malone who played tribute Johanna Mason in the series said her time filming in Paris “was extremely hard” as she was going through a “bad” breakup and had been “sexually assaulted” by someone she worked with.
“I was so full of gratitude for this project, the people I became close with and this amazing part I got to play,” she continued. “A swirling mix of emotions im only now just learning to sort thru [sic]. I wish it wasn’t tied to such a traumatic event for me but that is the real wildness of life I guess.”
The star said she “worked very hard to heal and learn thru [sic] restorative justice” and “how to make peace with the person who violated me and make peace with myself.”
She added that it’s been hard to speak about her role in “The Hunger Games” and her character “without feeling the sharpness of this moment in time.” However, she said she is “ready to move thru [sic] it and reclaim the joy and accomplishment I felt.”
“Lots of love to you survivors out there. The process is so slow and non linear. I want to say im here for anyone who needs to talk or vent or open uncommunicated spaces within themselves.
“Please dm me if you need a safe space to be heard,” Malone concluded.
Malone rose to fame after acting in the 1996 film “Bastard Out of Carolina,” for which she won the Young Artist Award.
Since then, she has acted in different films and TV shows, including 2013’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and both parts of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and more.
“I’ve been loving the process of learning more about myself and others through different terms that open windows, those windows then turns into doors and then I arrive at a place to find all this cool stuff out there,” she told the Hollywood Reporter last August.
