After publicly confessing to sexually abusing children earlier this week, former 7th Heaven star Stephen Collins sat down with Katie Couric on 20/20 and told her that he had been sexually harassed by an older woman when he was an adolescent. Collins said that the woman had exposed herself to him "quite a few times" when he was between the ages of 10 and 15. "I think that that distorted my reception in such a way," Collins said. "It was a very intense experience, but I think somewhere in my brain, I got the equation of, well, this isn't so terrible." He says he doesn't blame her for his behavior, though. "It's not why I did it. I'm not blaming her," he said. "That's an aspect that went into my own distorted thinking as a young man."
