Laura Dern Opens Up for First Time About her Own Sexual Assault on 'Ellen' - Watch Here!

Laura Dern makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing today (October 18), and speaks openly about her experiences with sexual assault and harassment for the very first time.

The 50-year-old Big Little Lies star talks about being honored at Elle Magazine’s Women in Hollywood Awards where topics such as sexual harassment in the workplace were discussed.

“It was an extraordinary experience, perhaps more than ever, to have this shared space and a tribe of women and artists talking about this industry, and ultimately therefore talking about sexual harassment in the workplace. And a very interesting thing happened this morning,” Laura revealed to Ellen. “I woke up and I realized that in that space I talked about how I was one of the lucky ones because I was raised by actors who told me their stories and told me what to look out for, and I realized that I was I still justifying behavior. And it was my mom who said, ‘No, no, no, Laura—that was sexual assault. That was harassment. That was assault. You were 14 then.’”

“You realize how in our culture we have justified, and therefore even condoned behavior, as though it’s the norm,” Laura added. “I felt very moved by people being honest and direct.”

Jessica Chastain & Laura Dern Chosen for Elle's Women in Hollywood 2017!

Jessica Chastain and Laura Dern are slaying on the covers of Elle‘s Women in Hollywood November 2017 issues.

Also featured on individual covers are Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy, Cicely Tyson, Jennifer Lawrence (see out her feature here), as well as Margot Robbie, Tessa Thompson, and Riley Keough (check out their features here!)

Laura spoke about wanting to play relatable women in movies.

“In my twenties, the characters I was asked to play were limited by, well, she’s just a girl—she doesn’t mean it or she doesn’t know who she is. So I’m starting to play women who just don’t know how to do it—they’re not girls, but they haven’t figured it out, still. That’s so relatable! I’m having the time of my life,” she said.

FYI: Laura is wearing an Unravel coat and Stella McCartney jumpsuit. Jessica is wearing Celine.

Laura Dern Says She's Giving Her Emmy To Her Mother Diane: 'My Mentor'

Laura Dern just won Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series at the 2017 Emmy Awards for Big Little Lies, but she’s actually not keeping her award — she’s planning on giving it to her mother, actress Diane Ladd.

“I think I’m gonna give this to my mom — my original actress, mentor, inspiration,” the 50-year-old actress told ET. “I definitely want to have her have this. But, yes, I’m telling her right now with you that ‘Mom, I want you to have this.’ She wanted to be here, but she’s a working actor.”

“I’m in,” Laura added about the possibility of another season. “I think all of the girls feel excited and ‘in.’ The challenge is getting everyone together at the same time, when everyone’s available, and seeing if Liane [Moriarty], you know, what she wants to offer, because it came with her book first, so, we’ll see. I’m hoping. It would be beautiful.”
