More and more women are coming out and confessing to being victims of sexual abuse after the Harvey Weinstein scandal surfaced, but “Westworld” star Evan Rachel Wood, who earlier admitted to being raped twice, chose to remain mum about her abusers’ identities.

She posted a video on YouTube saying that she has not named her abusers, “not because I don’t plan on saying these names eventually, but because to start that process is emotionally draining and financially draining, really an everything draining thing to do and to go through. And I want to do it when I'm ready.”

She described her abusers as “very powerful, very rich, very entitled, and very narcissistic white men,” so she understands why other women are opting to keep quiet about their past traumatic experiences.

“People are wondering why more women didn’t come forward sooner, and why in a lot of these cases one woman will come out or multiple women will come out and then the floodgates will open,” she said. “They do not feel safe enough to do so, period. And I am guilty of this as well because I have not named my abusers.”

“It is a terrifying thing to have to go through mainly because you’re at risk of not being believed and your career being hurt,” she also said. “You [also risk] being drained of your finances because it costs a lot of money to file a lawsuit and go to court with somebody, especially if all you have is your word against theirs and especially if these are very powerful people. Once again you're at the mercy of your abusers and you've kicked a hornet's nest and you have a target on your back.”

Because of her past trauma, Wood was able to relate to her “Westworld” character Dolores Abernathy. The host has been abused several times, but she harnessed her pain into becoming a stronger woman. Next season, Dolores will even become a completely different person.

“She’s a survivor; she’s been abused for about 30 years ... she’s been knocked down so many times and she comes back even stronger,” Wood told Forbes.

“Westworld” Season 2 premieres on HBO in 2018.
