"'Did you say sex? Dinner at sex?' I am so grateful to Carol Leifer, who wrote 'The Lip Reader,' and who thought outside of the box when it came to using a deaf character," the Oscar-winning actress says of the infamously funny episode of "Seinfeld" in which she played a tennis official with the good lines bouncing her way."My breaking the silence about the sexual improprieties could potentially help someone else who wanted to 'scream' later," she says. "Only by speaking out can the cycles of abuse and molestation stop."Neither does she forego those addictive details of the days when "drugs were my thing": "I have no regrets of the way I lived my life," she explains. "I only ask forgiveness from the ones J may have hurt along the way," which may have included her parents.
