[Betty Ford] and Betty Ford Center helped me beat my addiction,” Matlin Tweeted when the former first lady’s death. “She was an angel to many.”
In a new memoir, I’ll Scream Later, Matlin addresses several of her shattering ordeals: molestation, addiction and a tempestuous, abusive two-year relationship with actor William Hurt.
“Sometimes you want to block out things in life, erase the memories. Things that feel so bad that you don’t tell your family, your friends. I’ve decided to try to talk about something here for the first time in hopes that if other girls have faced similar circumstances, they will know that silence is not the answer.”
