The "Divergent" actress, 47, told Variety she was filming Paramount's 1997 thriller "Kiss the Girls" when a rival studio's executive lured her to his hotel room using step-by-step stages of pretense.

"I got out of there," she says, "And by the way, I've never been offered a movie by that studio. Ever. I beat myself up [about it] for a while. This is another part of the process. We internalize the shame. It really belongs to the person who is the aggressor."
