Celebrities have been popping up in Phoenix, Arizona over the past few days as they prepare for the Super Bowl on Sunday night (February 1). Actors Kellan Lutz and AnnaLynne McCord were spotted hitting up Maxim‘s 2015 Super Bowl party on Saturday night (January 31), where they celebrated the upcoming game with stars like Chris Pratt, Anna Faris, and Chris Evans.
Also spotted at the celebration was Baby Daddy star Tahj Mowry.
AnnaLynne was also spotted at more pre-game events earlier in the day, including The Giving Back Fund’s Big Game Big Give event, and the Kia Luxury Lounge, while Kellan hit up the Oxygen 2015 Super Bowl XLIX Activation.
Former 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord recently sat down with Access Hollywood, where she opened up about her past struggles, including being abused and raped by someone she trusted.
AnnaLynne spoke about the unhealthy relationships that stemmed out of being raped at age 18, and how she seemed out violence in her intimacy: “In order to cope with something that I couldn’t cope with, I made it pleasurable.” She said. “Like, ‘Okay. Let me make this a good thing, let me flip it'”.
“It’s a psychological thing that you do in order to keep moving forward” AnnaLynne continued. “And when you break through to light and realize ‘Oh I’m really just hurting myself’, you realize that you’re existing in what I like to call a false sense of free will”.
“That’s why I work with victims of sexual slavery, because I was enslaved to this belief system that I had to keep abusing myself in order to cope with the level of abuse I suffered.”
AnnaLynne then went on to describe a toxic and abusive relationship she had a little while back which almost led to her committing suicide.
AnnaLynne has made a short film called I Choose, to help raise awareness and fight for causes such as human abuse and trafficking. Be sure to check out the film here.
Looking like a goddess in white, AnnaLynne McCord was all smiles on Tuesday evening (June 10) as she walked the red carpet outside of the Harmony Gold Theatre in Los Angeles for a special screening of her short film I Choose.
AnnaLynne was joined by her boyfriend Dominic Purcell, who also stars in the project, which is focused on: “human trafficking laced with sexual liberalism and female empowerment.” AnnaLynne created the short film for the I Choose Campaign, which is currently fighting to end human trafficking.
AnnaLynne wrote with the film: “May we always take a stand for our right and the right of every member of humanity to simply CHOOSE. #Freedom #Freewill #EndSlavery #ICHOOSEthefilm”
Also stepping out to support her was AnnaLynne’s pal and former 90210 co-star Jessica Stroup, who looked summer-ready as she wore a bright pop of colour with a pretty blue dress.
