In a New York Times op-ed titled “The Lies Hollywood Tells About Little Girls,” the 33-year-old revealed that she and her parents tried to avoid sexualization in Hollywood, but it was a failed attempt.

Wilson hadn’t “appeared in anything more revealing than a knee-length sundress” as a little girl, but things didn’t change.

“This was all intentional: My parents thought I would be safer that way,” she explained of her demure style as a child. “But it didn’t work. People had been asking me ‘Do you have a boyfriend?’ in interviews since I was six. Reporters asked me who I thought the sexiest actor was and about Hugh Grant’s arrest for soliciting a prostitute. It was cute when 10-year-olds sent me letters saying they were in love with me. It was not when 50-year-old men did. Before I even turned 12, there were images of me on foot fetish websites and photoshopped into child pornography.”

“Every time,” she continued, “I felt ashamed.”

Wilson added, “Hollywood has resolved to tackle harassment in the industry, but I was never sexually harassed on a film set. My sexual harassment always came at the hands of the media and the public.”

Wilson penned her op-ed right after the release of the Britney Spears documentary. “Framing Britney Spears” explored how Hollywood used the singer to “sell an image of young sexuality and her subsequent mental breakdown.”

“Many moments of Ms. Spears’ life were familiar to me,” she added. “We both had dolls made of us, had close friends and boyfriends sharing our secrets, and had grown men commenting on our bodies.”

Wilson empathizes with the trials Britney had to deal with.

“We’re still living with the scars,” she admitted.
