Rumer Willis is opening up about sexual consent and what happened to her when she lost her virginity at age 18.
“When I lost my virginity, when I was 18, I was more concerned with the shame that I was feeling at not having done it. I was not abused or wasn’t raped… but I didn’t say yes,” the 31-year-old actress said on Red Table Talk. “I wasn’t gung-ho about it. But I also didn’t say no.”
“I just let it happen,” Rumer added. “He was older and took advantage, and didn’t check in. That’s where I feel like the man’s responsibility is. No means no, but what if you can’t say no?”
Rumer did not name the man who she lost her virginity to years ago.
