Gina remembers that times by saying:

I've also suffered molestation, in fact more than that, and I didn't say anything about it at the time. I should have complained but I didn't have the courage. The first time I was 19, I was still going to school. The second time, well I'd rather not talk about it. I was married and I was starting out in films.
