What happens when you put a man on a pedestal?
A photo of Natalie Wood’s husband Sam alexi Woods is now making the rounds on the internet, and it’s not what you might expect.
Woods, who played the role of Natalie in the ABC hit series, was reportedly a “very close friend” of Natalie’s husband, Matt Wood.
“She was one of the people that gave me my first kiss,” Wood told The Australian newspaper in 2013.
When asked why she did not publicly speak out about her relationship with her husband, Wood said: “It was like I was trying to hide something.
It’s very hard for me to be the person I am now without her.”
Wood married Matt Wood in 2015, and the pair have since split.
In an interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday, Wood revealed how she was sexually assaulted in the 1980s.
She said: Matt and I were just having a really nice time and we were at a friend’s house, and Natalie came over.
Then we started kissing and it was a very casual kiss, and I remember kissing him hard.
Matt put his hand on me and he just kind of grabbed my head and started kissing me, and then he put his hands on me.
The assault occurred in the early 1980s, but Wood said she did “not know why”.
“I had never had sex in my life,” she said.
Later in the interview, Wood admitted to being raped by Matt Wood, but she said she felt it was more “socially acceptable” for men to do the same.
“[Matt] just got off on it, he thought it was really sexy and he didn’t realise it was so wrong,” she explained.
Wearing her wedding dress on the red carpet at the Sydney Opera House on Wednesday night, Wood was asked why Natalie’s relationship with Matt was not widely known.
What I don’t want to do is make a scene at a wedding, Wood replied.
I just want to let the world know what’s going on.

As part of the series, Wood will play Natalie’s love interest and the mother of their daughter, Sama.
This is not the first time Wood has made headlines for her sexuality.
In October 2017, the former reality TV star was reported to have been in a relationship with Australian singer-songwriter Simon Patterson.
Patterson, who was then 25, was said to have asked Wood out.
