AnnaLynne McCord, who played Naomi Clark on the popular teen drama “90210,” recently opened up about the traumatic rape she endured as a child.

McCord spoke at the Somaly Mam Foundation Gala, held in New York City. The foundation is committed to ending sex slavery and human trafficking. During her speech on Wednesday, the actress broke down.

”I was raped,” she said candidly. “I was abused as a child. This is so important to me. I was suicidal. I cut my arms up. I wanted to die. I had a bottle of pills in a hotel and I was ready to end it all.”

McCord’s surprising confession came before the gala’s host, Katie Couric, and many other celebrity guests. A few of the stars in attendance were Kristen Bell, Russell Simmons, Susan Sarandon and fashion icon, Diane von Furstenberg.

”It happened to me once by somebody that I knew and it is a very interesting thing to feel that you do not have the voice to say ‘no,'” McCord explained. “I did not know how to say, ‘I don’t want this. Please do not do this to me.”’

Her courageous speech helped raise an additional $35,000 for the charity, bringing the grand total for the evening to $700,000.
