“NCIS” star Pauley Perrette has made a shocking public revelation — joining women all over the world speaking out about their personal experiences with sexual assault.

“I lost my virginity in a rape when I was 15, by a football player,” the star posted on Twitter, where she lists herself as a civil rights activist.

“That’s the ‘power guy’ in high school. And you know what I SAID? What I DID…? Nothing.

“I was so scared. So 
confused. So broken.”

Pauley, who is leaving “NCIS” after this season, said the horrifying ordeal scarred her love and work life.

“My rape led me into a series of abusive relationships, terrible self-worth, and self-blame, dismissing a few groping incidents, 
allowing myself to be bullied by a powerful man for way too long in a work environment, until I finally said ENOUGH.”
