Oscar Winner Common Talks Childhood Pain In New Book
Common released his new memoir titled Let Love Have The Last World is sharing the details about being molested as a child.
Sharing that he actually managed to forget about being molested until he worked on the 2017 film The Tale which followed the story of the director’s childhood abuse.
“One day, while talking through the script with actress Laura Dern, old memories surprisingly flashed in my mind, I caught my breath and just kept looping the memories over and over, like rewinding an old VHS tape to take closer looks at the previous scene. I said to Laura, ‘I think I was abused.’ Right there, it all came back to my mind as if someone had suddenly inserted deleted scenes into that little movie in my head, scenes that I hadn’t remembered or thought about before, scenes I couldn’t even remember remembering.”
