Vanessa Williams revealed a deeply personal secret on Oprah's Master Class last night:

She was sexually abused at the age of 10.

The long-time actress said the culprit was an older cool who made everything seem "cool" and that the incident took place when Williams was on vacation with a friend's family.

"She came into the room where my friend and I were sleeping and she told me to lie down on the floor. She took my bottoms off and she said, 'Be quiet,' and she went down on me," Williams admitted.

"And at 10 years old, I had no idea what it was, but I knew it felt good and I knew I shouldn't be saying anything, and I didn't tell anyone. It felt good but also something that was not supposed to be happening."

It's no secret that actors are often booked to play characters of much younger ages. Kerr Smith was 26 when he played 16 year old Jack McPhee on Dawson's Creek.

His incredibly youthful appearance (which has since become a full head of gray hair by 40) worked in his favor. Other celebrities have ridden a similar wave of good fortune. 

Playing younger roles on camera certainly helps keep them younger in our minds, but for many stars, the truth is they really look like they're only as old as their characters.

Have they found the fountain of youth? Are they just the product of a slow-aging gene pool? Maybe they're just secret friends with Dr. Botox and his friend The Scalpel?

Who knows! But here are 19 stars who are older than they look:

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston is 45! Contrary to reports, she is not becoming a mom in her mid-40s. Probably.

We know. We don't believe it either. Especially not #5.

In fact, to further test that fountain of youth theory, here are nine pairs of stars who are the same age, but you'd never know it by looking at them ...

It is on between Vanessa Williams and one of the moms involved with Toddlers & Tiaras.

During an appearance this week with Anderson Cooper on his talk show, the actress said of the aforementioned series:

"When the child is screaming and saying, ‘I don’t want to do this. I don’t feel like doing it.’ When they are using special juice to get them hyped... that’s not my world and I would never have my kids do that.”

Cue a reaction from Wendy Dickey, the mother of Paisley, a controversial member of the Toddlers & Tiaras cast who has dressed like a hooker and like a biker girl for segments on the show.

"Posing nude and having an abortion is 'not my world' and I would never have my kids do that," Wendy said, referring to Vanessa's Playboy past and her recent admission that she aborted a fetus in high school. "So easy on the judging Vanessa!"

The claws are out and it's getting personal on both sides. Which are you on?

When Vanessa Williams' book You Have No Idea is aptly titled.

The candid memoir, penned with her mother and available in stores now, reveals shocking secrets about the Desperate Housewives star's earlier years.

Probably the darkest one is that she was molested by an 18-year-old girl when she was just 10 years old, while they were on a family trip with friends.

"It was definitely a choice, because it didn't need to be [in the book]," Williams recalls. "It happened one night where she told me, 'come over here.'"

"I didn't know that it was wrong, but I knew it wasn't right because I wasn't supposed to tell anybody." Years later, her mother was stunned to find out.

"[I] had no idea that, that had happened," Helen Williams said. "But in retrospect, it put into place some of her reactions during her pre-teen years."

Another surprising admission? Vanessa Williams, now a mother of four, said she first got pregnant in high school, but she decided to have an abortion.

This was another secret she kept from her mother.

"Being pregnant is the most frightening thing that happens in your life," said the former Miss America of her decision to end the pregnancy. "I knew in high school that's something that I was not prepared to do, or fight, or struggle with."

Desperate Housewives star Vanessa Williams is bravely and surprisingly opening up about sexual abuse she endured as a 10-year-old at the hands of a teenage girl.

In a revealing interview in the new issue of People, Williams says the incident occurred when she was staying with family friends and their 18-year-old daughter.

The 18-year-old entered her room and “pulled down the bloomers of my cotton baby doll pajamas,” said Vanessa. “I lay there paralyzed. What was I going to do?”

Williams remained close-lipped about the sexual abuse for many years, but is now sharing her secret in her upcoming memoir, fittingly titled You Have No Idea.

Despite the childhood trauma, the former Miss America said it didn’t emotionally scar her for life - however, there were long-lasting, indirect consequences.

“It didn’t paralyze me, and I don’t dwell,” she explained, although it did cause her to act more rebellious and “pull away” from her parents as a youngster.

One is a former Miss America.

The other is an Oscar winner.

But this isn't a time to congratulate Vanessa Williams and Jennifer Hudson on their respective careers. Far from it!

Instead, the talented actresses are pitted against each other in the latest edition of a THG Fashion Face-Off. They may both look beautiful in blue, but there can be only one winner. Good luck to each star!

Has Vince Vaughn seen Vanessa Williams nude?

No, we're not referring to the former Playboy spread of this actress. We mean live and in person.

Reports are coming in that the Wedding Crashers star and the Ugly Betty actress are dating. Sources say they've been sneaking around Los Angeles together, trying to keep the new romance a secret.

"Vanessa's really trying to keep this a secret," claimed an insider. "She feels that the press helped ruin her relationship with Rick Fox, so she's trying to keep what she has with Vince private."

Sorry, Vanessa. But you can't get anything past The Hollywood Gossip!

Just ask Sandro Oh and Andrew Featherston.

Vanessa Hudgens might feel alone - and naked - these days, but a fellow actress with her own nude photo past says the High School Musical star will be okay.

"She's got talent and she's professional, and those are the things that'll help her survive in life," said Vanessa Williams at the ET/People magazine Emmy party on Sunday. "You know, welcome to the lesson of hard knocks. She got her first big one right now."

Remember, Williams started the beauty queen controversy long before anyone had heard of Tara Conner or Katie Rees.

She was pressured to give up her Miss America crown and at least $2 million worth of contracts after a series of naked images appeared in Penthouse, but Williams soon fought back, appearing on the cover of People and telling the world:

"I am not a lesbian and I am not a slut, and somehow I am going to make people believe me."

This became known as the anti-Tila Tequila platform.

"I met her and she's a very sweet talented girl and I've seen High School Musical 2 a zillion times because of my kids ... and she'll be fine," added the Ugly Betty actress and Chappaqua, New York resident.

Kim Kardashian nude? Yawn.

Who hasn't seen that image at this point?

Fortunately for men everywhere, however, the next issue of Allure magazine features a pictorial called "Look Better Naked" that showcases some lesser known - albeit extremely attractive - actresses and singers.

Let's start with Vanessa Williams. The current supporting player on Ugly Betty, Williams was actually Tara Conner before there was a Tara Conner: she had her Miss USA crown taken away after naked photos were discovered. But she's back in the nude game now!

Also taking off her clothes in the publication is former West Wing co-star and Broadway actress, Kristin Chenoweth. She's giving a whole new meaning to the term "wicked" here.

Finally, Carla Gugino nude is a sight Vince Chase is probably yearning to see. The rough and tough beauty has taken over for Jeremy Piven's character, Ari, as the agent on Entourage in the early parts of this season.

So there you have it. A few lovely ladies are showing the world that Tricia Helfer nude photos don't have a monopoly on male attention spans.
