The star also said she was raped by a second man on the floor of a closet in an emotional five-minute speech to DC law-makers.

She told the Capitol Hill crime panel: "I thought I was the only human who experienced this, and I carried so much guilt and confusion about my response to the abuse.

“I accepted my powerlessness, and I felt I deserved it somehow."

She detailed the extent of the horrific abuse and "brainwashing", adding she was left with PTSD, addiction and depression.

Evan told the panel she would "wake up to the man that claimed to love me raping what he believed to be my unconscious body.

"And the worst part: Sick rituals of binding me up by my hands and feet to be mentally and physically tortured until my abuser felt I had proven my love for them."

Evan was joined by other women on Capitol Hill, who all shared their stories about sexual assault in order to push for the Sexual Assault Survivors Bill in all 50 states – after it passed in 2016 in just nine areas.
