Ewan McGregor daughter’s rape hell
Ewan McGregor's daughter Clara has revealed she was raped, beaten and suffered pill addiction and depression in a heart-rending open letter.
The brave model and actress, 23, who also had an abortion, lifted the lid on her "year of hell" in the hope "it can help others feel less alone", The Sunreports.
Taking to Instagram, she wrote: "I've been so ashamed of some of my mental health issues that I haven't even wanted to tell friends.
"This past year I dealt with addiction, I got sober, and I dealt with a great deal of depression and anxiety, I had an abusive relationship, I had an abortion, the list goes on."
Clara, who has three younger sisters, added: "I've suffered from crippling anxiety since I was 4. (It) has stopped me living the life I wanted to lead. It was a cage I still struggle to get out of.

This was really hard for me to open up about so go easy on me ❤️ lil moment of honest in hopes that it can help others feel less alone. This past year I dealt with addiction, I got sober, and I dealt with a great deal of depression and anxiety I had an abusive relationship, I had an abortion the list goes only. Anxiety has been something Iv lived with since I was 4 years old. Iv been having panic attacks since I was a child and I didn’t know that I could live my life without this crippling fear. I didn’t know there was a way to get better. But there is. Help yourself so others can help you too. And never be ashamed to talk about it.
"I've struggled with substance abuse, it led me to Xanax and I'm proud to say I've been clean and sober off of pills for 110 days."
Her post - a year after she appeared with her dad in the Christopher Robin film - also revealed she had been attacked by an unnamed ex.
Clara, who lives in New York, wrote: "I was ashamed of the abuse I had let happen to me. I blamed myself for the bruises, the black eyes, the rapes and for the attacks a man did to me.
"But I'm regaining this power now … I feel so loved and blessed with where I am now."
Hundreds of followers have posted messages of support - calling Clara "beautiful and brave" for speaking out.
