Actress Karla Souza Says She Was Raped By a Director

Karla Souza, who stars on ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder, is coming forward with a story of assault against a director early in her career.

The now 32-year-old actress says she was filming a movie in Mexico. Her and the director were staying at one hotel, while the rest of the cast stayed at another hotel.

“He knocked at my door saying he wanted to go over some scenes and I thought it’s 2 a.m., it’s not appropriate and it’s something that shouldn’t be happening,” Karla said during an appearance on CNN en Español.

“The next day he decided not to shoot my scene and then he suddenly started to humiliate me in front of the others on the set. This was the psychological control that he held over me,” she continued.

“I ended up giving in to him [to let him] kiss me, to touch me in ways I did not want him to touch me and in one of those instances, he attacked me violently and yes, he raped me,” Karla added.

    O god, another one jumping on the bandwagon. Just throw some money at her, she’ll be fine. Money helps all victims get over it. Seems to be the cure all.

    Ignorant, Mexico is a different story than America. The men in power in Mexico are a different ball game, you don’t know her reasons for not naming the assaulter.

    Learn your facts. She was born in Mexico, she had a career over in Mexico before she even came to Hollywood. She could’ve worked with MANY Mexican directors throughout her career so it’s not like it’s easy to guess who it is; even tough I wish she did name her assailant.

  • Jay

    Do you?

  • moody

    Name your assaulter/rapist or shut up. If he did rape her, name him or you are enabling him to do the same to other women. The other Mexican directors she worked with do not deserve to be under suspicion. You can’t understand that?

    “I ended up giving in to him [to let him] kiss me, to touch me in ways I did not want him to touch me”. WTF? Why would you do that? Because some guy who wanted to get into your pants would be mean to you if you don’t let him in your pants? Pathetic. Not all women are weak, just some like this loser.
