Ronald Reagan
President of the United States, Actor

Allegations Summary:
Rape
Alleged Victim Gender:
Female
Political Party:

In a 1991 interview with People Magazine, actress Selene Walters claimed that in the 1950s Reagan forced himself on her, saying: “I was fighting him. I didn’t want him to make love to me. He’s a very big man, and he just had his way.”

The claim was initially published in Kitty Kelly’s 1992 book “Nancy Reagan: The Unauthorized Biography.” Due to widespread skepticism about many of the claims in the book, People interviewed Walters directly.  She generally confirmed the accuracy of Kelly’s account, only disputing that Reagan broke down the door to get into her apartment. She said she let him in willingly before he raped her.
