Sophia Bush opened up about the aftermath and "trauma" of her much-publicized 2006 divorce from Chad Michael Murray in a new open letter published in Cosmopolitan. "In my 20s, when I was starting out my career as an actor, I wasn't looking for a relationship, but one found me and became serious, even though I hadn't planned to settle down until my 30s," Bush wrote in the magazine's February 2017 issue.
And the trauma of it was amplified by how public it became, which was incredibly foreign and bizarre to a girl who'd been just another college kid 24 months before her life blew up." Years later, after dating One Tree Hill costar James Lafferty and actor Austin Nichols, the John Tucker Must Die actress wrote that she realizes relationships often serve a purpose.
"Some are meant to heal you, some are meant to teach you how to build yourself up and some are meant to show you how to trust your own intuition," she explained.
