Rumer Willis lost her virginity to a man who "took advantage".
The 'Once Upon A Time ... In Hollywood' star recalled how she was 18 when she first got intimate with a man and whilst she insisted she wasn't raped, she wasn't "gung-ho about it".
Speaking in a sneak peek clip for her appearance on Red Table Talk, she said: "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. I wasn't gung-ho about it. But I also didn't say no. I just let it happen. 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?"
Meanwhile, Rumer - who is the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis - previously insisted she was "reclaiming" her body.
In a lengthy post, she wrote: "Whether clothed or not, as women our bodies are constantly policed and dictated over by men and by other women. We are told what we can and cannot wear based on our size and shape or others beliefs about what is acceptable or appropriate. We are told what we need to look like to be considered beautiful. We are told if we dress a certain way we are 'asking for it' or if we are more covered up we are prude or unexpressed. We are told our sexuality and expression of that sexuality is something we should ashamed of, something we should keep to ourselves. We are persecuted for our right to choose when to become a mother, or to become one at all. We are kept from access to birth control, places to get information about sexual health and contraceptives are defunded. The lineage of women who have fought with their lives to progress women’s rights sacrificed everything to get us to where we are today and we are still miles away from any sort of equality. My body and my right to my divine femininity will not be policed or suppressed by anyone man or woman."
