Sarah Hyland is showing her support for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford by sharing her own #MeToo story.

The “Modern Family” actress, 27, took to Twitter on Thursday to explain “why I didn’t report” after Ford gave an emotional testimony about being sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings.

“#WhyIDidntReport,” she began. “He was a friend. It was New Year’s Eve my senior year of high school. Everyone was drunk. He broke into the bathroom I was in. I hoped it was a dream but my ripped tights in the morning proved otherwise. I thought no one would believe me. I didn’t want to be called dramatic. After all I didn’t say no. Shock can do that to a person. #BelieveWomen #MeToo #IBelieveHer.”

Later, Hyland tweeted again, this time with direct support to Ford. “I believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Deborah Ramirez. I believe Julie Swetnick,” she wrote. “There is no path forward for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. #BelieveSurvivors #TIMESUP.”

Hyland wasn’t the only star to share their experiences. Earlier on Thursday, Busy Philipps took to Instagram with an emotional story.

“This is me at 14. The age I was raped. It’s taken me 25 years to say those words. I wrote about it in my book. I finally told my parents and sister about it 4 months ago,” Philipps, 39, wrote.

“Today is the day we are silent no more,” she continued. “All of us. I’m scared to post this. I can’t imagine what Dr. Ford is feeling right now.”
