The actress said that the hard part for her was that she was never abused by her father.
She further revealed that she felt helpless at that age, and could do nothing to stop her father.
"The hard part for me was that he never abused me. I felt like a coward because I didn't do anything and couldn't do anything," she said.
The 41-year-old grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, with mother Judith and father Jerome until they separated, when she was four.
The star revealed that her father moved back when she was 10 as her mother felt that her daughters needed a father figure.
