During the interview, she spoke about several revelations in the book, including her experiences with sexual abuse as a child ,as well as handling fame at a young age.

“I was just catapulted [into fame]. I didn’t even really know what fame was. It wasn’t something that I’d ever wanted for myself,” she said.

“I had all my stuff on the floor, I was living on the floor and then I’m going to this mega-million-dollar set, people are sprinkling rose petals on me…I had to perform because at the same time everyone wanted that from me,” she said.

She also talked about the sexual abuse she faced at age 12.

“It still affects me. A part of me died that day, for sure. You’re never the same. Then you live with the constant questioning of whether or not that really happened. And whether or not you’re entitled to consider it as such.”

Following the abuse, Mena Suvari began to use drugs, including meth.

“You lose your mind on meth. You’re in a completely different zone. It was labelled as ‘the worst thing in the world, but it will make you feel like you can do absolutely anything.’ I just thought, OK, I had nothing to lose, I felt.”

Find out what else she revealed in the book.

Will 'What Lies Below' Get a Sequel? Director Talks Ideas for Second Movie!

What Lies Below is currently the #2 movie on Netflix and fans will definitely want to know if a sequel is on the way!

The eerie thriller follows a socially awkward 16-year-old girl (Ema Horvath) who returns home from two months at camp to discover that her mom (Mena Suvari) has a new fiance (Trey Tucker), whose charm, intelligence, and beauty paint the picture of a man too perfect to be human.

There are some crazy things that happen by the end of the movie and we broke down that twist ending in a previous post!

Writer and director Braden R. Duemmler opened up about a potential sequel when the movie was released on VOD back in December.

“I do have a sequel idea of where it could go, as well as an angle that could maybe work better for a TV series. Who knows, but I’m open to ideas. I also have a bunch of other projects I’m working on and this was such a labor of love that I might work on some other stuff first and then return to this world. I’d love for the opportunity to get to explore a second chapter of this story,” Braden told ScreenRant.

Check out the four Netflix TV shows that were canceled after they were already previously renewed.
