Sophia Bush, who starred as Brooke Davis on the CW coming-of-age hit show "One Tree Hill," was recently on Ashley Graham's "Pretty Big Deal" podcast and opened up about inappropriate scenes that were written into some of the scripts.

Bush says she oftentimes pushed back against the writers and refused to be pressured to do things she didn't want to do.

"There was this sort of really weird thing...you look back at it, at the time I didn't realize how inappropriate it was, but again, this is a long time ago. I remember my boss kept writing scenes for me to be in my underwear. And I was like, 'I'm not doing this, this is inappropriate. Like, I don't think this is what we should be teaching 16-year-old girls to be doing, and to be seeking validation this way," she said.

She then further detailed just how inappropriate things got, but never actually named any names.

"He literally said to me, 'Well you're the one with the big f--king rack everybody wants to see.' And I was like, 'What?! Well, I'm not doing it!'

"I was really ballsy and I didn't even know it," she added, talking about how she used to show up on set in turtleneck sweaters to make a statement about not wanting to show her body.

In 2018, Bush opened up to Andy Cohen about experiencing sexual harassment on the show from Mark Schwahn.

Fans were very upset to hear this news. "As a 'One Tree Hill' Fangirl it kills me that the actresses had to work in such a toxic environment. Brooke was one of my favorite characters, so I love Sophia. Also, I wonder which actress she's referring too. Hmmm, someone investigate this," one person wrote.

"I am the BIGGEST One Tree Hill fan. But knowing that Sophia, Bethany, Hilarie and other girls be harrased is heart breaking. And I appreciate that all of them stayed with him for NINE years. I love ONE TREE HILL," another said.

"I’m such a OTH die hard fan, and it makes me sad that they had to live through this while filming such an amazing show which was mainly amazing because of them!! This shit makes me mad," a third commented.
