A story is waiting to be told by Constance Wu.

In Vanity Fair's Sept. 26 edition of "Making a Scene," the 40-year-old actor discusses being raped in her 20s and wonders why she was so slow to recognize what had happened.

An "inspiring novelist" whom Wu had just started dating at the time allegedly assaulted her.

We had dinner on our second date at a restaurant near his place, and after dinner, he said he had a gift for me.

Could I come upstairs so he could give it to me? As Wu writes, "I felt a twinge of warning in my gut, but I ignored it — he didn't look threatening or shady at all, and you'd have agreed if you'd been there."
