“It is really for all survivors of any kind of abuse to say, ‘You don’t have to live in it anymore. You can be free and let go of it, ”Feldman told Yahoo Entertainment / SiriusXM Volume. “And I think this film is a big part of it for me – letting it go for myself and telling him that it’s okay to let him go wherever he is. It’s about going ahead and being free from abuse. ”

“We went upstairs and went into the bathroom and had this long conversation and he brought up his rape,” Feldman recalls. “He said,” If something should happen to me, dude, one day you have to tell my story. “And I think,” I’m not going to tell your story. This is your job. You are here. Go ahead and do it. “And he says,” No, man, I can’t, dude. I am not strong enough. … and he will kill me. If I die in the end, you have to promise me that you will. “

Thank you for facing it “I couldn’t do it, but you know, it happened to me too.” It has happened to me many times, “Feldman says.” I had a lot of people on Twitter every day who thanked me for letting me Voice was because they showed them courage.

And for Feldman, everything really goes back to what he describes as this moment of “divine intervention” when he took this oath to Haim. “There are things in life that you should do, and this is one of the things I think I should do,” Feldman says. “He asked me to do it. I made a promise to him. I am a man of my word. When I give my promise to someone, I do everything I can to achieve it. And even though this is the greatest war I’ve ever waged and I don’t want to be the one to wage it, I made that promise at the same time, I kept it, and now I’m dealing with the consequences. ”
