Tim Roth's Grandfather Abused Him & His Father as Children

Tim Roth has revealed some dark moments from his childhood and how his grandfather abused both him and his father when they were kids.

The 55-year-old actor has previously spoken about being abused as a child, but never revealed who his abuser was.

Tim says that his dad, Ernie Smith, dropped out of his political life after some sex scandals. “He was an abused kid, my dad, and it was a terrible childhood that he had, and he took that sh-t seriously,” he said.

“He was a damaged soul. I loved him. He was funnier than f–k,” Tim added in his interview with The Guardian. “He was abused. And I was abused. But I was not abused by him. I was abused by his abuser.”

When Tim was asked if the abuser was his grandfather, he said, “Yeah. It was his father. He was a f—— rapist. But nobody had the language. Nobody knew what to do. That’s why I made The War Zone.”
