X-MEN stunner Rebecca Romijn-STAMOS is convinced she was "raped in a sense" after a male masseur allegedly sexually assaulted her during a rub down.

The blonde beauty - who returns as the villainous MYSTIQUE in the eagerly awaited science-fiction sequel, X2 - was left traumatised after the Mexican therapist began groping her in an unprofessional manner.

She says, "It was so violating. I had to play tricks on my mind to convince myself that he wasn't really doing it.

"On the third day he started getting frisky. He was just massaging my butt for way too long. He was going for it between my legs."
