Tim Roth

Tim Roth is opening up about his painful childhood.

In a new interview with The Guardian, the actor — well known for his roles in Quentin Tarantino films like Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and The Hateful Eight, as well as his former FOX series Lie To Me — revealed that both he and his father were sexually abused by his grandfather.

Back in 1999, the 55-year-old first spoke about being abused as a child, without many details, when he made his directorial debut with the The War Zone — a film about a father abusing his daughter.

On Sunday, Roth dove deeper into his traumatic past… something he shared with his father, Ernie Smith.

He told the outlet:

"He was an abused kid, my dad, and it was a terrible childhood that he had, and he took that sh*t seriously."

Later adding:

"He was a damaged soul. I loved him. He was funnier than f*ck. He was abused. And I was abused. But I was not abused by him. I was abused by his abuser."

When asked for clarification of whether the abuser was his grandfather, the actor responded:

"Yeah. It was his father. He was a f*cking rapist. But nobody had the language. Nobody knew what to do. That's why I made The War Zone."

Wow. So incredibly sad.
