AnnaLynne McCord sat down for an in-depth interview with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush, her first since revealing she was once sexually assaulted. AnnaLynne candidly recounted that fateful night but also provides insight on her childhood and her distorted views on what it meant to be in love.
On how her religious upbringing affected her views on sex and why she decided to take her own virginity:
“I would go to hell if I ever had sex…I associated [sex] and this is probably tapping into what Sigmund Freud has always said, which is that everything in life is about sex except for sex and that's about power. And for me it was about power, it was about no one's gonna take this from me.”
On how her parent’s use of corporal punishment affected her view of what love was:
Those who love me hit me [AnnaLynn’s parents] was played over in my mind and acted out in my life time and time again in my formative years. So my brain was formed around this belief system. It was a core thought system. There was no question of whether it was right or wrong or made sense. It was just the way it was. That was just it…So I'm not enjoying it because it's not painful enough.
Jessica Lowndes was spotted in Palm Springs this past weekend taking a break from the heat and party scene at The Music Lounge at the Ingleside Inn. The 90210 actress stepped into the shade to avoid the dessert sun and relaxed to some tunes on her SOL REPUBLIC headphones before heading to the festival.
